The X-Files’ current revival is only six episodes long, but something curious is going on with their schedule: they aren’t airing in the order they were filmed. The revival stuck to one of its initial plans—starting and ending with mythology chapters—but the hours in-between were shuffled. What was filmed as Episode 2 is now running as Episode 4; what was filmed as Episode 4 is now airing as Episode 5; and what was filmed as Episode 5 aired as Episode 2. (Episode 3 is the only standalone episode to remain in its intended spot.) Though fans might be tempted to blame hi ... [Continua a leggere]

L'attesa è finita: X-Files è tornato in TV. E lo ha fatto come se il tempo si fosse fermato e non fosse passato un istante dall'ultima indagine di Mulder e Scully...
Ce lo chiedevamo tutti: come avrebbero giustificato la mancata invasione (con relativa fine del mondo) fissata per il 22 dicembre 2012? Come avrebbero collegato i nuovi episodi con 9 stagioni e 2 film? Il rischio di fallire c’era (ma non per me: io credo in Chris Carter. Ci credo davvero) e molti fan di X-Files erano preoccupati. Ma i primi due episodi della miniserie-evento, trasmessi ieri sera da FOX in prima assoluta e in contemporanea con gli Stati Uniti, hanno fugato ogni dubbio. Chris Carter è un genio. Ha riscritto la storia di 202 episodi (duecentodue, lo scrivo in lette ... [Continua a leggere]
In “Founder’s Mutation,” agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) investigate a horrific and violent suicide at Nugenic Technologies. The investigation leads the duo to the company’s founder, Dr. Goldman (Dr. Savant), who is a self-professed “champion of the unborn,” and demonstrates a remarkable obsession regarding children with genetic deformities. As Scully and Mulder soon learn, Dr. Goldman -- who has ties to the Department of Defense -- is hiding a secret about the deformed children in his clinic. Some of them are no mere accident ...

After far too long an absence from television, Chris Carter’s The X-Files (1993-2002) returned to television on Monday night with an episode titled, cannily, “My Struggle.” That title -- not coincidentally, I presume -- is also the translated-to-English title of Adolf Hitler’s 1925 literary autobiography, Mein Kampf. That historical fact may prove the key to understanding better this new starting point for the series. When we consider Hitler and his particular “struggle,” we think immediately of genocide, totalitarianism, and fascism. We thin ... [Continua a leggere]
Spoiler alert! Do not read further if you haven't watched the season premiere of The X-Files.
The first episode of The X-Files' reboot ended with a familiar sentiment—and a familiar face. "We have a small problem: They've reopened the X-Files," the Cigarette-Smoking Man (William B. Davis) tells an associate. And though the X-Files were reopened (and shut back down) multiple times during the franchise's 22-plus years, when viewers last saw the Smoking Man he was very much presumed dead. After multiple fake deaths, CSM's hideaway was bombed in the 2002 series finale—not only was he engulfed in flames, but his skin was shown burning off his face until his skull was exposed. ...

Last July, we traveled to the set of The X-Files to check out the revival first-hand and speak with stars David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully). Duchovny and Anderson were in the middle of shooting the monster-of-the-week episode, “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster,” written by Darin Morgan. During a break in filming, Duchovny and Anderson sat down with TV Guide Magazine/TV Insider to discuss what it took to bring the agents back, the show’s new mythology and guest stars, and why they didn’t want the 2008 movie The X-Files: I Want to Beli ...

FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully explored the strange world of "The X-Files" for more than a decade, unraveling government conspiracies, performing alien autopsies and denying the clear romantic tension that seemed to drive the two oddly paired partners from one impossible situation to the next. But last we saw them, the co-workers had donned swimsuits and were finally relaxing in a row boat in the middle of a vast ocean, bound for somewhere that was surely more pleasant. Though series creator Chris Carter left us believing that Mulder and Scully were headed for a sunnier and pr ... [Continua a leggere]
It’s been eight years since David Duchovny last played Fox Mulder, the FBI agent whose dogged pursuit of the truth — about government conspiracies, the existence of aliens and the disappearance of his sister – fueled the cult series “The X-Files” for most of a decade. But now that he’s back for the miniseries revival, which premieres Sunday on Fox, the actor admits that, under the right circumstances, he may be ready to continue that crusade on a regular basis. During Fox’s press day for the Television Critics Association, Spinoff Online joined a sma ... [Continua a leggere]
The award-winning actress discusses the return of Dana Scully in Fox’s beloved supernatural series and her epic battle to be treated equally on the show.
Gillian Anderson was just 25 years old when she walked into a Los Angeles office to audition for the role of Special Agent Dana Scully, a medical doctor and FBI agent tasked with using hard science to disprove the alien conspiracy mumbo-jumbo of her partner, Fox Mulder. David Duchovny—then 33 and known mostly for hosting Showtime’s cheesy erotic drama Red Shoe Diaries—charmed producers first (“he was so intelligent and wry,” remembers Danielle Gelber, Fox’s former director of drama development). He’d already landed the role of Mulder by the time he fi ... [Continua a leggere]
Chris Carter is not one to count his chickens before they hatch, but that doesn't mean The X-Files creator isn't already mulling over ideas for additional episodes of the beloved series. In fact, he had already started writing a third X-Files movie before the idea of a television revival was even on the table. But Carter will have to wait until Sunday when The X-Files returns for a six-episode miniseries to see if the appetite for the paranormal crime-solving of Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) is still there. But what's kept Carter - and the fans - so invested in The X-F ... [Continua a leggere]
Mulder and Scully entered a dark apartment, their flashlights on. They were searching for, what else, the truth. Scully went off by herself. "Mulder!" she shouted from off camera. She found something. Mulder turned and walked toward her voice. End scene. I was there. And I was verklempt. Yes, I'm talking full on tears in my eyes, hand clutching my chest. I was on set of The X-Files; Mulder and Scully are back and I was there to witness a piece of TV history. When The X-Files premiered in 1993, I was six years old. I knew it existed because my dad was a loyal viewer. He was in front of the TV ... [Continua a leggere]

After almost 14 years, “The X-Files” is returning to television. A new six-episode miniseries finds Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) once again in the midst of government conspiracies and unexplainable phenomena, flashlights in hands as they search for the truth. The highly anticipated series debuts in a two-night event, with the first episode (titled “My Struggle”) premiering on Sunday, January 24, and the second episode (“Founder’s Mutation”) arriving the next night. In addition to series leads Duchovny and Anderson, se ... [Continua a leggere]
PASADENA, Calif. – Scully and Mulder have issues when Fox’s The X-Files returns Sunday (10 p.m ET/7 PT), but that’s hardly the case for the actors who play the paranormal investigators, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. The Scully-Mulder relationship “is not in a good place,” Duchovny tells USA TODAY, before turning to Anderson for character information. “Were we ever married? I get it wrong all the time." Anderson says no. “Just living in sin?” Duchovny asks. “Yes. Basically,” she says. “And we had a baby? ... [Continua a leggere]
NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia — There they were in the midst of what looked like a spooky old-growth forest (Princess Park, actually, mere blocks from upscale suburban homes here), surrounded by clumps of moss, overgrown ferns and gigantic Douglas firs, looking for clues of yet another allegedly paranormal crime, the kind they used to solve almost every week. They addressed each other, as they always had, by only their last names. “Mulder,” said Gillian Anderson, reprising her role as the F.B.I. agent Dana Scully, the look on her face instantly recognizable; part reprima ...
