more X-Files

Fox executives spoke with the Television Critics Association today. Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Dana Walden and Fox Broadcasting Company Entertainment President David Madden answered questions about the successful X-Files limited series earlier this year and possible plans for another.

“We would obviously love to do another season,” Madden said. “There are significant talks going on with all three of the principals. Schedules are hard but we’re working hard to get this done.”  Read More »

American Gods director

This year, something doesn’t feel quite right with Comic-Con. That’s true for a variety of reasons, but it’s mainly because Hannibal is no longer making appearances. A room packed with the enthusiasm of a large pack of Fannibals was always a treat. Hannibal may be off the air and out of Comic-Con, but that’s not stopping Bryan Fuller from attending. Yesterday, he brought with him his new show, American Gods (co-created by Michael Green).

Below, watch the American Gods trailer.

Gillian Anderson in Hannibal

Bryan Fuller may be holding out hope for more Hannibal, but even if a return does come together in some shape or form, it’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. So in the meantime, here’s a tasty little morsel to tide you over. Fuller is planning a Hannibal mini-reunion, casting Gillian Anderson in his new Neil Gaiman-inspired series American Gods. Naturally, she will play a character who lives to be worshipped.  Read More »

the x-files revival review

Once upon a time, The X-Files was my thing.

Years before Lost and Battlestar Galactica, I had FBI Agents Mulder and Scully and their increasingly bizarre caseload full of aliens and monsters and supernatural occurrences. This is one of the the great genre shows of my life, a vital cornerstone in my taste that sits right alongside the likes of Star Trek. And I have not been shy about my excitement for the new revival season, which began its six episode run with a two-night premiere this week.

And the results were… mixed. I have complicated feelings on these first two episodes, which run the gamut of quality in a pretty extreme way. My scattered thoughts, and my attempt to bandage a few wounds, follow.

jimmy kimmel x-files parody

My excitement for the upcoming revival of The X-Files found itself tempered yesterday as a new batch of early reviews arrived. To call the early response to the limited series’ first episode negative would be an understatement. The disappointment was palpable. It hung in the air like an alien fog that you could collect in a jar and bottle in a government agency, only for it to break out and wreak havoc in the middle of the season when everyone is taking a break from the overarching mythology episodes

So faithful-but-not-blind X-Files fans need a laugh today and bless Jimmy Kimmel for trying to give us one with this amusing parody, which finds him teaming up David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson for a new case. Watch it for yourself below.
