An excellent resource: a 47 page document listing challenging words and idioms used in #TheXFiles along with their definitions for non-native speakers of English, in chronological order. Found on reddit – credits to Nodir Ataev!

For instance, from “Miracle Man”:
Smorgasbord: a range of open sandwiches and delicacies served as hors d’oeuvres or a buffet – a wide range of something; a variety: the album is a smorgasbord of different musical styles

RIP Peter Donat – aka Bill Mulder (and a lawyer in Godfather Part II, among other things!). I’m sure you were a better father than Bill.

Happy #1013, happy birthday Mr. Carter! Here is a great panel interview (IBG – used to be pay exclusive) with great Anderson-Duchovny interaction, from the remote year 2011 – before the revivals and when people were still asking for a third film! And already Carter didn’t remember some details like what would have been the alternative ending for season 7. Carter says there’s one thing he would change but doesn’t say what: did he change that in #TheXFiles revival? What was it? Friendly aliens twist? M&S breakup? CSM alive? William not Mulder’s?

#Millennium is 22 years old!


22 years ago today, Chris Carter created a series and a character that would forever change my life. Frank Black and Millennium were a gift to me as a person and an actor.
All around the world, even to this day, fans still remember and love this series. I want to thank Chris, the entire cast and crew and especially the fans for their support of Millennium.

2018 was an important year. It is very likely we saw the very last of #TheXFiles, with a season 11 that had some genuinely good moments, and others…less so. The fandom blossomed in another gasp of activity before dissolving yet again. Also, I made a twenty-year-old dream a reality when I got to visit filming locations in Vancouver! Eat The Corn has followed all these events — and still has a few articles in store for 2019, but little beyond that. Endings indeed.

This is an image from what very well may be the last making of (Implanted Memories: 25 Years of The X-Files), on top of an end scene that best fits a finale in these two nostalgia-heavy revival seasons (The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat): an homage to The X-Files’ predecessor The Twilight Zone, and a self-conscious admission that times have changed since the series was in tune with its time. Goodbye and thank you!
