Howard Gordon, in an interview with 411Mania.com, offered insight about the XFiles fandom.
Gordon was asked who had had most passionate fandom between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and X-Files.
His reply? Surprisingly, Gordon said, “ I’d have to say Buffy fans have it, mostly because it’s a more female and younger demographic. Buffy was a click behind X-Files in the generational sweep so the whole social media thing really helped carry Buffy along.”
