A frequent poster to this thread, pippytu, is a woman. She has posted that she likes both the show and Duchovny as Hank, a lot, so I guess you don’t speak for all women, huh?
More seriously, it seems to me that Hank is in a world of hurt and has been for a long time, which frequent but casual rolls in the hay haven’t helped. I like the guy but I feel sorry for him, too. He is his own worst enemy. As the lawyer girlfriend who dumped him angrily said, “You love women but you hate yourself!” Hank is a sad, sad sack, who hasn’t figured out how to dig himself out of the hole he has put himself in. I can hardly wait to see what he is going to screw up next.
