Gosh, Mr.Carter no–you will make me blush! “It wasn’t until the second movie that we actually saw them in what I would consider a provocative intimacy, in the same bed together.”

“Are 51” inspiration for #TheXFiles revival confirmed:
“It was from scratch… But that’s not exactly true because I had written another script that had nothing to do with the X-Files that had certain elements in it that my wife had remembered and she said “What about this this and this?” and that became some of the raw material that I used to do the pilot episode of this limited series.”
Plus, what to make of this? “Glenn Beck is someone I have a relationship with, same with Alex Jones and his site on the internet. I find it to be fascinating.”
Bonus: “The Lone Gunmen returned so there’s no reason Krycek can’t!”

Lots of interesting Carter, but oddly not direct quotes:
“Talking about additional episodes, Carter said there were a few he had written that he think could still be used today, and even more interesting, admitted he’s had an episode in his story vault that he’s wanted to bring to air for more than 20 years.”
“Besides the miniseries, however, Carter also said that he was open to making a third X-Files movie, but had a very specific set of rules that would have to be met in order to do so. Unlike the second movie, which Carter admitted was full of problems, the creator said he would have to be given the same kind of freedom and tools he and his team received while working on the first film.”

#mythXplained “William”: Here it is, the XF episode that singlehandedly badly tarnished the reputation of the entire series and casts a long dreadful shadow to this day! (Not to mention the entirely unnecessary resurrection of a certain character.) The adoption was perhaps necessary, in the mind of Carter, in order to clear the complications and have Mulder & Scully ready to jump in the movie franchise still hoped for at the time. However since then this plan backfired somewhat — and hopefully the upcoming revival will start making amends.

#mythXplained “The Truth”: what’s been called the “series finale” for the past 13 years…is no more! A highly frustrating ending to a disappointing season, only bits of this episode are memorable. As a cry to the world, Carter spends most of this episode summarizing the mythology, to *prove* that this whole enterprise is not as non-sensical as most reviewers/fans were accusing for years — but simultaneously turns the big finale into a clip show. Another unnecessary return and re-death of a dead character later… the Mulder-Scully couple reunite in a scene recreating the motel scene from the Pilot; whatever truths they will seek, they will seek together.

Today, January 23, is a full moon. I think #TheXFiles revival ep.3, Darin Morgan’s “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster”, takes place today!
Oh, what a moving tribute to director Kim Manners and assistant director Jack Hardy — among the chief Ten Thirteen people who have passed away over the past decade — in Darin’s episode!

D-1 for #TheXFiles revival–yet also D-30 for “My Struggle II”! In barely one month it will all be over. It’s been a wild ride for a year since last January when serious declarations started being made for a revival — let us hope it will have not only been worth the wait but that this revival will be worthy to take its place next to some of the best work of one of the best series of the past 20 years. See you after the premiere!

10X1: an epic review for an epic episode!

You can skip to the parts that interest you most. In short, a great return to form, although some story directions are odd but we will refrain from passing quick judgment before seeing episode 6 as well.

Excited about this one!


Episode Written and Directed by Creator Chris Carter; William B. Davis, Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose Guest-Star

When an art gallery that’s showing potentially offensive artwork is bombed, Mulder and Scully seek some way to communicate with the comatose bomber in order to prevent a future attack. Meanwhile, a pair of younger FBI agents on the case (guest stars Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose) push Mulder and Scully to examine their own beliefs as Scully seeks answers from neuroscience and Mulder from mysticism in the all-new “Babylon” episode of THE X-FILES
