Someone Save us From ‘The X-Files’ Animated Comedy Spin-off

Have you ever heard of a worse idea than a The X-Files animated comedy spin-off? Like, how do those words even GO together? The X-Files and animated, maybe, but comedy? Spin-off? We ONLY cared about it because of Mulder and…

Keep Calm, Trope On: Partners to Lovers

We all have our favorite and least favorite tropes. From love triangles to slow burns, tropes are often the best ways to showcase great characters and storylines. They can also be frustrating and make you question why it is even…

‘The X-Files’ 11×10 Review: So Long, and Thanks for All the Pain?

I wondered, for a long time, how this day would feel. The X-Files has meant so much to me for so long that I always figured the closing of this chapter in my life, the absolute certainty that this is…

‘The X-Files’ 11×09 Review: This Shit Is Almost Over

Chris Carter, or maybe The X-Files in general, are like that one night stand you really, really enjoyed while it was happening, but have regretted every second since. This is a terrible comparison to make for me, especially, because I…

‘The X-Files’ 11×08 Review: (Un) Familiar Snoozefest

So often it feels like there are only two kinds of episodes of TV: the really, really good ones, or the terrible ones. Sadly, that is not the case, because both those options make for easier reviews than the one…

‘The X-Files’ 11×07 Review: Who The Hell is Scott?

Don’t you feel like we’re on a train to Shitsville and no matter what we do, no matter how comfortable the ride is, no matter how many tasty snacks they give us along the way, or how much they string…

The X-Files 11×06 Review: Please Stop Trying to Make Skinner Happen

Like fetch, it’s never, ever going to happen. Ever. I watched this hour so you wouldn’t have to, so enter here those who wish to avoid the Skinner crap. I’ve got all the good parts for you. The Mulder and…

‘The X-Files’ 11×05 Review: This William Nonsense

It made no sense then, it makes even less sense now. Welcome to the William arc, aka the most ridiculous thing The X-Files ever tried to pull on us, a tall order when you remember all the things CC actually…

‘The X-Files’ Mid-season Trailer Provides Hope

Hope is that thing with feathers…. Damn you, Chris Carter. Damn you. You’ve done it again. One second I’m here, happy in my I DON’T CARE ABOUT THIS SHOW ANYMORE bubble, and then there’s this trailer and I’m 13 again…

‘The X-Files’ 11×03 Review: Platonic my arse

I’m going to start this review with a caveat, and I want to be really, really clear here. Just because you’re coming across a mostly positive review about a pretty decent episode of a show that changed my life, introduced…

‘The X-Files’ 11×02 Review: This is Better Than The Other Thing

Once Upon A Time, a long, long time ago, when I was a kid too young to be watching The X-Files and probably didn’t understand a thing of what was actually going on, I actually enjoyed mythology episodes. Of course,…

‘The X-Files’ 11×01 Review: Our Struggle

Chris Carter has a thing for repeating titles, as “My Struggle III” will attest to (and Redux II, The Sixth Extinction II, Nothing Important Happened Today II, etc). He also has a thing for complicated plot lines no one cares…

David Duchovny Talks ‘The X-Files’ Season 11 and a World that’s Receptive to Mulder

Fox Mulder was always an outsider. That was not just part of his charm, that was one of the things that made the show feel so distinctly sci-fi twenty something years ago, when our faith in the government and its…

Gillian Anderson Talks a Fun Season 11 of ‘The X-Files’

Gillian Anderson has embodied Dana Scully in such a way for so long that, despite the fact that she’s been anything but quiet the last few years, most of us tend to identify her with the character she made iconic.…

Chris Carter and Mitch Pileggi Discuss Season 11 of ‘The X-Files’

The cult classic turned ratings juggernaut thanks to a healthy serving of nostalgia and the explosive chemistry of its stars, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, The X-Files returns to our TV screens tomorrow for a 10-episode season 11. We had…

“Shippers were heard” Promises Chris Carter as ‘The X Files’ Season 11 Takes Shape

And, I’m not saying I don’t believe him, but he did teach me to trust no one. The comments come just as Den of Geek provided us with our first glimspe at Season 11 – prompting fans worldwide to say:…

‘The X-Files’ Announces Casting News for Season 11

With The X-Files Season 11 set to premiere in 2018 it’s about time and filming starting just about now, it makes sense that we’d start getting out first casting announcements for the new season, other than, you know – Mulder,…

‘The X-Files’ Season 11 Adds Female Directors and Female Writers

And they say public outcry does not work. The news that The X-Files Season 11 would have an all-male writers room was met with discontent – and now, it seems like the show is, at least, trying to make amends,…

‘The X Files’: Why Every Show Needs a Diverse Writers Room

The X-Files has never been a truly diverse show — in front or behind the cameras. And yet, it felt like this was the time, like we’ve finally gotten to a point where that could change, where our favorite show…

‘The X Files’ Renewed for Season 11

Today is the day where dreams come true. And fine, I’m being hyperbolic, because we all figured this was coming, it was only a matter of time – but The X-Files are coming back for a season 11, and with…

27 Female TV Characters Who Were a Force of Nature in 2016

Being a woman is not easy. Not even in TV-Land. In fact, we could even say “especially” not in TV Land. Everything is, after all, magnified. The characters we see on the screen are us (with stylists and better outfits),…
