    Happy to see that ‘Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose’ tops TV Guide’s list of top 25 #xfiles episodes. What’s your favourite? https://t.co/McYjaIaxqu

    X-Files Mulder and Scully I want to Believe

    • Lazarus 10:07 am on July 19, 2020 Permalink | Log in to Reply

      The first four, in order are:

      Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose
      War of the Coprophages
      Jose Chung’s From Outer Space

      Tougher for the fifth as there are so many I don’t want to exclude from the list but I’ll go with

      The Post-Modern Prometheus

        Those are all incredible episodes and it’s an impossible task to rank one ahead of the other. I really should embark on an X-Files re-watch some day.

    X-Files fans will be interested by this story that explains how a minor actor on the show went on to become one of the series’ most important writers. Among his scripts were the wonderful episode “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Response.” https://t.co/XbzteXnJ21

      Darin Morgan has always been my X-Files hero. Easily some of the best episodes made IMHO. Was stoked when I heard he was going to write one when they rebooted the series a few years ago. While I can’t say that episode, The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat, was a classic, it was certainly different.

    Enjoy the return of the X-Files while you can because Scully’s not coming back when this season ends. https://t.co/uM02XCt65N

    Every episode of the #xfiles, ranked. The #list even shares my favourite for #1 so it must be good. https://t.co/GJgkCStJuL

      I thought more episodes where a shoe-in given how much I loved all the new episodes and the initial positive response, but now I’m hearing mixed messages. The fact that it did not do well in the coveted 18-40 demographic is the biggest stumbling block (damn you gen X, Y, Z’er!). Another problem is scheduling. So I still have hope, but it’s fainting at this point since they really should have formally announced something by now. Crossing fingers…

      A good list, but i would change a few things at the top. For myself “Home” just SLIGHTLY edges “Clyde BRuckman…”. “Humbug” and “Musings of a Cigarette Smoking man would be higher on the list.

      Simply loved the 6 shows this year. Still hoping for more!

        It’s all subjective. How can you even rank that many episodes? What do you do after the first 100?

        I have only watched two of the new shows, but loved them both and am looking forward to watching the rest. From what I’ve been reading, it sounds like there will be more – eventually.

    Awesome news that Fox is talking about an X-Files reboot that would include David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. I want to believe. http://t.co/RUAWSQHY7O

      Mixed feelings about this. We already know that Gillian is much happier with her new TV role and would probably not want to do the show, for now at least. Could they really rekindled the Mulder-Scully magic after all this time, or is it better to just leave well enough alone. Has there ever been a successful revival with an original cast? Doubt it. I think that ship has sailed.

      • Capt. Xerox 10:45 am on January 23, 2015 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        It sounds as if Mulder and Scully would be supporting characters and there would be new leads carrying the show. In essence, that’s what they tried to do in the final season with agentsJohn Doggett and Monica Reyes. It failed, but I think it’s because the show had been on for so long, but now that enough time has passed, I think there is a renewed appetite for The X-Files. I want to believe!

    X-Files star Gillian Anderson has made an effort to distance herself from the genre that made her famous,  but now she’s back as an author of a science fiction series for a new publishing imprint.

    Actually, she’s co-writing the books with someone else so there’s no saying how much actual writing she’s doing, but her name will no doubt be twice as large as her co-author’s and she’ll probably do a lot more of the media appearances to promote the series.

    As for the premise of the books, they are about Caitlin O’Hara, a child psychiatrist who is treating a young patient with problems are tied to a greater force in the universe.  The truth is out there.

      Much as I like Anderson, I won’t hold my breath for this. Aside from the fact that she has no wrting credentials whatsoever, the name co-author “Jeff Rovin” rang a bell. I knew I had Rovin books, but as it turns out not on my extensive pile of fiction (even though he’s written a bunch of movie novelizations). Check out his bibliography (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Rovin#Fiction_and_novels)
      I know I have “Back to the Batcave” and pretty sure I have some of other general info book, probably the SF movie related one.

    There’s no news on a possible X-Files 3 movie, but there are new comic books in the work to keep the franchise alive. http://t.co/Rv3602Pv

      I completed my collection of the first run of the Topps X-Files comics only last summer. I haven’t read them all yet, but I mostly enjoyed those that I read, including those that were adaptations of TV episodes. Since then, there have been a few comic reboots and even cross-overs, but I haven’t bothered with those. I looks like X-files will be one of franchises that will always comes back, again and again in comics because there are enough fans that have fond memories of the show.

        I wonder if X-Files will ever get a reboot with new actors portraying Mulder and Scully or if it could come back with two new agents chasing down paranormal cases, kind of like they were trying to set up at the end of the show.

      I just watched a fan-edit called Exordium which attempts to stitch together five mythology episodes from Season 1 as a single movie. Not sure how successful it was. It felt like I watched three distinct episodes that were vaguely connected. If you’re ever interested to check it out, follow this link: http://www.fanedit.org/ifdb/component/content/article/84-fanedit-database/tv-to-movie/689-x-files-exordium

      I bought the complete series DVD set and only have the last 2 seasons to watch again. I actually missed a few of the episodes in the ninth season when they were first aired as I began to loose interest in the series, but I’ve been told that a few of the episodes I missed were actually good.

      I too noted many of the ‘celebrities’ the second time around. The Jack Black episode also stars Giovanni Ribisi (Electricity boy) which makes that an especially cool episode.

      I’ll be finished biking through Smallville season 2 next week and will then be watching season 8 of X-Files.
