We Still Believe in 'Opening The X-Files'

In this engaging look at the influential sci-fi show, Darren Mooney points out the links not only between episodes, but also between other shows, movies, and cultural events.

The X-Files: Season 10, Episode 6 - "My Struggle II"

Season 10 of The X-Files was a true revival; it brought back much of what made the series so beloved as well as some of its weaknesses.

The X-Files: Season 10, Episode 5 - "Babylon"

Written by Chris Carter, "Babylon" offers up elements of classic episodes and gleefully plays with the characters of Mulder and Scully.

The X-Files: Season 10, Episode 4 - "Home Again"

Where “Mulder and Scully Meet a Were-Monster” was meant to relive all the good times, “Home Again” poignantly reminds them of all they’ve been through and sacrificed.

The X-Files: Season 10, Episode 3 - "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster"

Even if the remaining three episodes don’t live up to the standard set by “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster”, there’s no doubt that it'll stand as a new classic.

The X-Files Revival Trailer: "We've Never Been in More Danger"

The new trailer for The X-Files revival premiered last night during Gotham and it ticked off plenty of boxes for X-philes.

The Bones in Every Procedural TV Show, Including 'Bones', Are the Characters Themselves

I hate procedurals, but I love Bones. The compelling characters keep the audience engaged despite the formulaic format, but some episodes fall flat.

Comics

"Spontaneous" Presents A Burning Enigma Wrapped in a Conundrum

Spontaneous rekindles interest in the mystery-horror genre grounded in human experience not unlike Fringe or The X-Files. In this book, lead character Melvin watched his father combust spontaneously, a tragedy that has driven him to solve the mystery that causes these sudden human burnings to happen.

Cult TV Spotlight: David McCallum

You can tell a lot about a career from fan-made videos.

"Fringe": Every Generation Gets the "X-Files" It Deserves

Fringe is The X-Files new and improved for viewers with shorter attention spans and an appetite for more gadgets and less paper work, more super geniuses and fewer bureaucrats, higher body counts and less verisimilitude, more answers and fewer questions.

Chronic 'Lost' Sickness

The Lost Syndrome has consumed me for five years running, and I'm growing weaker. It’s like X-Filesioma all over again.

Has 'Fringe' Lost Its Way?

The recent and depressingly bland episode "Johari Window" was another in a distressingly large number of dull episodes bookended by a few spectacular gems. Will Fringe ever fulfill its potential and become a consistently great show?

The X-Files: Resist or Serve

It was certainly the kind of show that openly invited believers and skeptics to tune in and enjoy. And one would think that such a terrific show would be a goldmine of ideas for a video game spin-off, no? Well, yes and no.

The X-Files: The Complete Eighth Season

When a television series grows in depth and complexity, more often than not, there's no going back.

The X-Files

The X-Files has long been but a pale reflection of the show it once was.
