Behind the scenes at #XFilesRevival, many revelations from Carter!
Carter “wrote a third movie—which has yet to see the light of day” ?!
On the CSM being back: “In Episode 6, you’re going to see exactly what the product of that failure to die [in the 2002 series finale] was.”
Season 11? “Carter hopes the hard-core fans are satisfied, and since much is left unresolved at the end of Episode 6, another miniseries is possible.”

Story and visual influences on The X-Files : Season 1

We reenter the “Carter universe” in one week. On this occasion, EatTheCorn presents an original look on “The Obsessions of Chris Carter” than can be seen throughout his entire corpus: history and memory, loss, religion, trust, family. A very interesting article by French academic Séverine Barthes (Paris IV-Sorbonne).

#mythXplained “NIHT”: And so the most controversial season begins. Carter went away during the summer holidays, leaving Spotnitz to develop what would have been the “Next Generation XF”, and Carter came back at the very last minute as a show-runner for season 9. Instead of making a clean break with Mulder, Scully and the whole mythology around them and focus just on the new faces, season 9 chooses to make Mulder the absent centre (again), make baby William into a mystery (again), make Scully the weeping caretaker (alas!), and add soap operatic drama making Reyes less interesting (introducing her ex Brad Follmer). Nevertheless, these two episodes are perhaps the season’s most interesting mythology episodes, with more mysteries around the Supersoldiers (governmental? alien?), more genetic experiments and more conspiracy theories (chloramine in tap water). It goes downhill from here.

#mythXplained “Trust No 1”: NSA surveillance, constant paranoia, Terry O’Quinn, suspicions of experiments on babies: what could go wrong with such an episode? Yet this episode comes out as some of the most bitter experiences of watching The X-Files: not just the horribly out of place melodrama of the Scully and Mulder e-mails and love sickness, but also the focus yet again on whom we know we will not see, and the cheesiness of the kryptonite-like magnetite and the scene of destruction of a Supersoldier. Many interesting things, but not the XF we knew…

#mythXplained “Provenance/Providence”: The setting is familiar: religious cults, secrets buried underground, alien-as-God parallel, flashbacks revealing truths about the military, hints of greater forces at work (here, while Doggett is recovering at the hospital)… And yet it comes down to this: William is the object of an alien prophecy. The X-Files had gotten us used to more subtlety and more interesting storylines. Regardless, the decision has already been taken: The X-Files will be ending with this season and after these episodes everything accelerates to the conclusion.

Sad news from our friends at @[109517928483:274:BacktoFrankBlack Campaign]: despite a very interesting five-issue special featuring the return of Frank Black and his dark/light universe, it seems IDW will not be producing more “Millennium” comics. IDW does have many plans for The X-Files though, so perhaps another crossover would not be impossible?…


No matter what you are hearing, IDW has no plans to continue the Millennium comic unfortunately. Lots of rumors and speculation with no facts, we on the other hand have spoken to IDW.

201 episodes, 2 movies = 205 references! The illustrated guide into the story and visual influences on The X-Files has just been updated.
From “The Mothman Prophecies” to “Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography”, from H.P. Lovecraft to “Alien”, from “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold” to Semisonic’s “Closing Time”, and many many more…
I tried to hit exactly 203 references, but then I figured this list can only grow, so why bother?

Chris Carter himself on #TheXFiles revival:
“In this context, it seemed like a perfect time to rattle some cages and shine a light on the dark and distrustful mood toward government that polls tell us pervades our country.”
“Over the past ten months about 500 people came together to make six episodes of the best TV we know how.”
“Mulder and Scully, colleagues who developed a tempestuous affection and intimacy, have a child together, William. He was put up for adoption when they feared for his life, due to the same conspirators Mulder so believes in. This becomes a very personal story that is explored through the course of these six episodes.”

#TheXFiles teases from Anne Simon:
Genetic modification technology will play a major role, she said.
CRISPR-Cas9 makes it possible for us to alter the DNA of living cells, including human cells. And this science will tie into a “really big” plot twist, that will “kind of explain the whole conspiracy theory and what the cigarette-smoking man was doing.”
From 2X08: One Breath:
BYERS: The Thinker reports the protein chains are a result of branched DNA.
MULDER: Branched DNA?
LANGLY: The cutting edge of genetic engineering.
BYERS: A biological equivalent of a silicon microchip.
LANGLY: This is way beyond cutting edge. This technology fifty years down the line.
MULDER: What’s it used for?
FROHIKE: Could be a tracking system.
BYERS: Developmental stages of a biological marker.
MULDER: You mean a high-tech identity card?
LANGLY: Or something as insidious as grafting a human into something… inhuman.
(The computer beeps again.)
BYERS: Good theories, gentlemen, but all for naught.
(He points at a protein data map.)
This branched DNA is inactive. It’s waste product. Whoever was experimenting on Scully is finished. Now it’s nothing more than a biological poison.
