Full liveblog of Chris Carter at world premiere of @[362989843738755:274:The X-Files].

“It’s really a dream come true for me to do something.”

“Every day I look at the newspaper and I see a possible X-Files episode, so this is obviously something that – I did it for a long time and you never quite lose the eye for what would be good X-Files storytelling. It’s a perfect time to come back with the X-Files considering global politics.”

Asked about the future potential for new episodes, Carter was optimistic. “I love telling X-Files stories. The truth is out there! If we satisfy audience expectations, certainly there’s an opportunity,” he said.

#XFilesRevival press: US premiere at #NYCC before a crowd of 3000: despite some fans who know how to keep a secret, expect spoilers to hit the internets soon (and, who knows how good rule-keeping was, perhaps video clips of the episode will surface as well). The January premiere is still over 3 months away.

#XFilesRevival premiere press: It’s back to classic X-Files!

Alien conspiracy theorists treated as an X-Files in of itself: “Mulder has been diagnosed as depressive by his wife” Will we learn more about what happened between Mulder and Scully? “I don’t think so, that’s for other shows” + teasing the stand-alone episodes, like Darin Morgan’s “Curse of the Were-Lizard” (interview below does go into some spoilers)

There have been plenty of articles and some interviews that have come out, some go into extremely spoiler territory. I will not relay all this here, those who want them can look for them.

I am very intrigued and interested to see where this goes. It really feels like Carter took a long break and is back with an X-Files for present times, and has kept a good memory of old-school seasons 1-3 X-Files as if these defining seasons is what should really remembered about the show. Wait and see.

Lets we forget! #mythXplained “Demons”: producer Bob Goodwin provides the story, Chris Carter turns it into a mytharc episode full of half-truths, deliciously ambiguous about what is real and what is memory warped by obsession. An oft-forgotten gem

4X23: Demons


12 Oct 2015, 21:56

#mythXplained “Gethsemane”: Carter’s very personal themes of faith and skepticism cry out in pain for the whole world to hear in this episode that tries to shake everything in the world of the show’s mythology, kicking off one of the show’s very best multi-part episodes

4X24: Gethsemane / 5X02: Redux / 5X03: Redux II

This philosophical existential dialogue between our two heroes is one of the best in the series:

MULDER: I’m as skeptical of that man
as you are, but proof… definitive proof of sentient beings sharing
the same time and existence with us, that would change everything.
Every truth we live my would be shaken to the ground. There’s no
greater revelation imaginable, no greater scientific discovery.

SCULLY: You already believe, Mulder. What difference would it make?
I mean, what would proof change for you?

MULDER: If someone could prove to you the existence of God,
would it change you?

SCULLY: Only if it were disproven.

MULDER: Then you accept the possibility that belief in God is a lie?

SCULLY: I don’t think about it, actually, and I don’t think it can be

MULDER: But what if it could be? Wouldn’t that knowledge be worth
seeking? Or is it just easier to go on believing the lie?

Apart from some other anniversaries, October 13 is also the anniversary to one of @[362989843738755:274:The X-Files]’ best episodes.
Read genius Darin Morgan with his typical self-depreciation:
“A lot of that free will and fate stuff had to do with the fact that I was really bad, at the time, at plotting.”
“I left it in there as my own inside joke; I laugh every time I see it.”
“My pitch to Chris was, because Mulder’s interested in the psychic ability, that’s all he focuses on, and doesn’t really treat Clyde Bruckman as another human; he’s just interested in the phenomenon. Because Scully didn’t believe in it, she could treat him as a person, and see how his belief that he could see the future had ruined his life.”

The leaks are out there! 4 promos with unfinished VFX are spreading through the internet. Our first glance at the non-mythology episodes — monsters, mutants, psi powers, medical experiments — and it’s touching all the notes it’s supposed to touch (maybe too much so?). The X-Files are back!


20 Oct 2015, 21:20

#mythXplained “Christmas Carol/Emily”: an acute sign of torture porn on Scully on the second half, but brought about so smoothly, beautifully, ethereally in its first part. A wonderful mix of mythology and character study — despite a link of these episodes with the core mythology that is problematic at best, besides they were written by John Gillnitz and not Carter

5X05: Christmas Carol / 5X07: Emily


23 Oct 2015, 19:50

#XFilesRevival is going to be a mix of same-old same-old and radical break with what came before.

Chris Carter: “I jumped at the idea when I found out the actors were interested. I can tell you the idea of a reboot wasn’t the way I wanted to go. I didn’t want to come back to do a victory lap, to do sequels, or anything like that. I wanted fresh, new material, and that’s what we’ve done.”

Then why not do an original series instead of more X-Files? And why not use the opportunity to wrap up the X-Files properly instead of opening all-new mysteries?

#mythXplained Patient X/The Red and the Black: A pivotal 2-parter. The aliens-as-God parallel at its apex, a continuation and reversal of Mulder’s crisis of faith, the introduction of the Faceless Rebels, cinema-quality direction by Manners & Carter and memorable music by @[114444205294473:274:Mark Snow]. As “Fight the Future” approaches, definitve answers in the mythology come in spades.

5X13: Patient X / 5X14: The Red and the Black

This exchange in particular becomes more and more relevant as the #XFilesRevival approaches:

Mulder: It all comes down to a question, one that hasn’t been answered or I don’t think honestly addressed. Who made that chip in your neck? That chip was found in a military research facility. Our government made that chip, implanted it in your neck as part of a secret military project to develop a biochemical weapon, to monitor your immunity or to destroy you like a lab rat… if the truth were to be exposed. Your cancer, your cure. Everything that’s happening to you now. It all points to that chip. The truth I’ve been searching for? That truth is IN you.
Scully: (pauses, looks down) Mulder, when I met you five years ago, you told me that your sister had been abducted… by aliens. That that event had marked you so deeply that nothing else mattered. I didn’t believe you, but I followed you… on nothing more than your faith that the truth was out there, based not on facts, not on science, but on your memories that your sister had been taken from you. Your memories were all that you had.
Mulder: I don’t trust those memories now.


28 Oct 2015, 21:41

#mythXplained Travelers: It’s back in time within a back in time episode, exploring a very Dark Skies-like type of alien we never see again. Also never referenced again: Mulder’s ring, a Duchovny improvisation, that could be linked to the later introduction of Diana Fowley. Nice reuse of actors (young version of Mulder’s father from “Musings”, “Demons”; same actor for J.E.Hoover in Millennium’s “Matryoshka”)!

5X15: Travelers

Two interviews with Chris Carter on the big twist in the mythology in the #XFilesRevival, preparing the ground for what ought to be some massive questions:

(6:40) Question: we’ve been lied at the whole time
“Not necessarily the whole time, he [Tad I guess] makes a reference to something. But you don’t know to take people to face value and to trust what they’re saying. Everyone’s got their version of the truth and they may be lying as well. So, we wanted to sort of throw that out there.”

(1:05) “People are not necessarily to be trusted. So when someone says something you can’t necessarily take it at face value in The X-Files.”

#mythXplained This is the end…of the best period for XF, the Vancouver era, and of Carter’s initially planned 5-year span for the series. The first of many ends. For the occasion, a scene actually takes place in Vancouver (@[802493469802487:274:Every Frame a Painting] 😉 ), we meet a boy who is “the key to everything”, and with Spender and Fowley and the Syndicate shenanigans the show is more an ensemble than ever. Bye bye Bob Goodwin & Vancouver crew!
