Groundhog day rip offs

This weekend, Happy Death Day will give audiences that old familiar feeling that they’ve seen something like this before. Because they have: it’s a slasher movie take on Groundhog Day. But Groundhog Day isn’t the only film to use the time loop scenario.

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.

x-files prequel

The basic history of FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully was doled out on a need-to-know basis throughout the original run of The X-Files. She was a promising medical medical doctor from a military family who was recruited into the bureau straight out of college. He was a normal-enough kid whose entire existence was turned upside down when his sister was apparently abducted by aliens.

But since the revival of this iconic show (which got significantly better after I reviewed the first two episodes) has attracted massive audiences, The X-Files is journeying into territory that every major genre series eventually passes through. Yep, it’s time for a prequel. In young adult book form. Called The X-Files Origins.

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.
