'The X-Files' EP James Wong Breaks Down That Unexpected 'Ghouli' Reunion

Spoiler alert! Do not read this piece unless you've watched the January 31st episode of X-Files.

After nearly 16 years, Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny) finally reunited with William (Miles Robbins), who is now known as Jackson Van De Kamp... albeit with a very X-Files twist. The duo wound up back in their son's orbit thanks to an open X-file and Scully's mysterious vision, but things quickly turned tragic when it appeared he had died. However, it turned out that William's powers were greater than anyone anticipated: He was able to project images to other people to manipulate their perception of what was going on, thus tricking everyone into thinking he was ...

SPOILER WARNING: Tonight's episode of The X-Files, "Ghouli," discussed at length below.

Fans of The X-Files know that the writing team of James Wong and Glen Morgan has produced some of the creepiest episodes of the series. "Squeeze," "Tooms," "Home" -- they all rank as series classics, which are still referenced with reverence today. The duo actually left to create their own series, Space: Above and Beyond (1996), but remained in the world of Chris Carter shows, writing episodes of The X-Files until 1997, and for the series, Millennium and The Lone Gunmen. Wong and Morgan also started the Final Destination franchise, co-writing the first and third films, with Wong directing the ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files, recensione episodio 11x01. Memorie dal futuro

L'eterno conflitto fra scienza e fede trova nel connubio di entrambi gli elementi l'unico vincitore: X-Files è tornato con la stagione numero 11. E una partenza col botto.

C’è qualcosa che differenzia X-Files da tutte le altre serie TV: la capacità di Chris Carter di trasformare tutto in qualcosa di nuovo. Qualcosa in perfetto stile X-Files. Ogni tematica, nella serie, ha preso spunto dalla tradizione (letteraria, folkloristica, popolare…) aggiungendo un tocco di originalità. Ecco quindi che le visioni del futuro di Dana Scully non sono come tutte le altre visioni viste al cinema e in TV: rappresentano un mix fra presente, passato e futuro. Scully sa cosa succederà ma sa anche come questo la fa sentire, perché l&r ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files, l'Uomo che Fuma nei primi minuti della nuova stagione

Se la gente conoscesse la verità, si riverserebbe nelle strade. Ecco perché l'Uomo che Fuma crede di avere il diritto di decidere cosa possiamo o non possiamo sapere. X-Files 11 sta arrivando. E sarà una bomba...

I primi minuti della stagione 11 di X-Files , in prima assoluta su FOX dal 29 gennaio, sono suoi: dell'uomo che Fuma. Se il primo episodio della miniserie evento del 2016, poi divenuta la decima stagione, ci raccontava la storia di X-Files e del mondo con la voce e il punto di vista di Fox Mulder, ora è tutto diverso. Tutto riscritto. Dalla geniale - e provocatoria - immagine dell'Uomo che Fuma (vero nome: Carl Gerhardt Bush) in studio mentre si registra il finto sbarco sulla Luna, con un esplicito omaggio al film-capolavoro Capricorn One, fino a Donald Trump e Kim Jong-un. Passando a ... [Continua a leggere]

'X-Files' Scribe Darin Morgan Reveals Which Homage Didn't Make the Final Cut

Warning! This post contains spoilers for the Wednesday, January 24 episode of The X-Files. Do not read this until you've watched the hour.

The X-Files took on the Mandela Effect and President Trump (via a Trump-like alien) in Wednesday’s “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat.” But thanks to Reggie Something (Brian Huskey) insisting he was really Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder’s (David Duchovny) long-lost partner, the hour ended up being, in many ways, a love letter to the series itself. As Reggie explained his “real” connection to the dynamic duo, viewers got an alternate take on things: new opening credits with Reggie and Reggie in the background (adding snark) to memorable scenes throughout ...

The X-Files universe may be one full of mystery and uncertainty, but there's at least one thing about it that is crystal clear: When writer, and now, director Darin Morgan's name is on an episode, audiences can always expect a weird and wonderful ride. Morgan's first contribution to the series was the story for Season 2 episode, "Blood," and since then he's written ace installments like Season 3 episodes, "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose," and "Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space,'" and arguably the best episode of Season 10, "Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster". Morgan's episodes have a ten ... [Continua a leggere]

'The X-Files' postmortem: 'Plus One' director Kevin Hooks talks bringing sexy back to the show

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the “Plus One” episode of The X-Files.

Phew — is it hot in here or is it just us? This week’s Chris Carter-penned X-Files installment, “Plus One,” was one of the steamiest in the show’s history … even though Fox Mulder and Dana Scully (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) didn’t do anything more on camera than cuddle. In the midst of an investigation into a strange case of murderous doppelgängers, the paranormal investigators provide an overdue update on their complicated romantic status by sharing an intimate night together in their hotel room. Initially occupying separate beds, an e ... [Continua a leggere]


SPOILER WARNING! This week's episode of The X-Files, "Plus One," discussed at length below.

Wait?! Did MSR (Mulder/Scully Romance) fans just see in "Plus One" what they've been hoping to see since the FBI agents lip-locked at the end of Season 8? Damn right they did, and all of that relationship goodness was mashed inside a classic-style X-File involving super creepy, Hangman-playing twins, Judy and Chuck. In case you didn't catch it, the tour de force performances of both "Little Judy" and cranky Chuck were both played by actress Karin Konoval. And surprise, this dual role is actually Konoval's third separate appearance on The X-Files. In 1995, she played Madame Zelma in ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files star admits: ‘We didn’t do our best work’

DAVID Duchovny has made a rather frank admission about 2016’s long-awaited but ultimately disappointing return of the X-Files.

X-FILES fans can breathe a sigh of relief. David Duchovny says season 11 has redeemed itself from 2016’s fizzer. “I am much happier about doing these next 10 episodes than I was about the last six,” the sci fi star tells, referring to season 10, which aired last year. “These shows are significantly better and we are all doing better work this time around,” he assures. “There are many reasons why we might not have done our best work last season probably due to the long layoff. I also think the season was too short to make an entire show.” ... [Continua a leggere]

The X-Files: "My Struggle III" (January 3, 2018)

The X-Files (1993 – 2002; 2016, 2018) has returned for Season 11, and I’m behind the eight-ball here reviewing the new season of ten episodes.    Hopefully, I will catch-up quickly. (Right now I’m two episodes back!)   We must begin our look at the new season with “My Struggle III,” the shocking resolution (of sorts) to the Season 10 cliffhanger. The third part of the “My Struggle” saga, written and directed by Chris Carter, aired in the U.S. on January 3rd, 2018, and has fiercely divided critics and audiences for two reasons. ...

TCA 2018: 'The X-Files' Panel

As part of the TCA Winter sessions, FOX organized a studio day for the journalists involved in the traditional gathering for the press. This Q&A had been advertised to be with the attendance of David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, and Chris Carter. Due to the current mudslide and storm situation in Montecito and Santa Barbara areas, Carter had to skip the event but producers Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and Jim Wong stepped up to be part of the panel. After the presentation of the latest trailer of the new season, the different members of the press took turns to inquire about th ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson on Her ‘X-Files’ Future: ‘I’m Finished and That’s the End of That’

Gillian Anderson has given a lot of thought to why she feels she is done with creating new episodes of “The X-Files,” and it boils down to the fact that when she embarked upon the revival of Chris Carter’s hit genre series back in 2015, it was never pitched to her as a full-fledged return to create a whole new, on-going version of the series. “I thought that the previous six was going to be it,” Anderson admitted during a panel for the second chapter of “The X-Files” revival at the Television Critics Assn’s winter press tour on Wednesday. &ldquo ...

The X-Files script that was too bleak to air

Cult horror author Thomas Ligotti explains why his nihilistic take on the sci-fi series never made it to TV

Their search for truth has seen them do battle with vampires, zombies, aliens, and elasticated mutants hungry for human offal. But what would Mulder and Scully make of a case that brought them face-to-face with “the strange and awful truth” of existence? “Crampton”, an unproduced screenplay for The X-Files, offers a clue: co-written by cult horror author Thomas Ligotti in 1998, the script plunges our detective leads into a world of illusion, suggesting conspiracies of a different kind. If only the 2018 iteration of The X-Files were so ambitious. Las ... [Continua a leggere]


SPOILER WARNING! The X-Files Season 11, Episode 2, "This" discussed at length below!

Long-time The X-Files writer, Glen Morgan, wrote and directed this week's episode, "This," which brought back (kind of) Lone Gunman Langly, and explored the afterlife via tech. In an exclusive sit down with SYFY WIRE, he explains what he was trying to do with the episode, lessons learned from Season 10, and the personal inspiration for this tale. After the huge ratings for Season 10, did you assume that would lead to moreThe X-Files stories? Glen Morgan: I didn't really think about it. I thought it would be done, so I was as surprised as anybody. In "This," you we ... [Continua a leggere]

‘The X-Files’ wanted Robert Patrick back as John Doggett for Season 11, but ‘scheduling issue’ got in the way

“I know we tried to get Robert Patrick a couple times,” confirmed “The X-Files” executive producer Glen Morgan at the Television Critics Association winter press tour about Fox’s current revival of the classic sci-fi series. However, Patrick’s day job on CBS’s “Scorpion” made him unavailable to shoot any new episodes for “The X-Files” Season 11. “We’ve tried, but it was just a scheduling issue,” Morgan said. Patrick’s John Doggett was cast in “The X-Files” Season 8 as way to fill the gap left ... [Continua a leggere]
