The Performer | Ellen Pompeo
The Show | Grey’s Anatomy
The Episode | “The Sound of Silence” (Feb. 11, 2016)
The Performance | If a picture really says a thousand words, this review is superfluous: Any image we publish of Pompeo’s stricken face from this week’s Grey’s will tell you all you need to know about her visceral performance.
After an attack by a disoriented patient left Meredith temporarily deaf and unable to speak, her portrayer turned her visage into a notepad, on which she scrawled volumes about her character’s fear and confusion, her rage and despair. Frankly, between the articulateness »
What in the world is happening to Fox Mulder? In this exclusive first look photo from The X-Files, David Duchovny's character has gone country. Did you ever in your life think: 1. The X-Files would return for new episodes? and 2. Said new episodes would involve Mulder line dancing? If you answered yes to both of those, well, you're a dark wizard. In "Babylon," the Monday, Feb. 15 episode of the fan-favorite Fox series, Mulder and Scully (Gillian Anderson) meet and work with FBI agents, Miller (Robbie Amell) and Einstein (Lauren Ambrose) while trying to communicate with a comatose bomber in order to prevent a future attack. Will it be neuroscience or mysticism? So why is Mulder line dancing? They're going to »
Is the basement office about to have two new inhabitants?
Only two episodes are left in The X-Files‘ revival, and Monday’s (Fox, 8/9c) installment introduces Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) and Robie Amell (The Flash) as FBI special agents who bear more than a passing resemblance to Mulder and Scully.
PhotosX-Files Finale Sneak Peek Teases Scully’s (Scary!) Alien DNA
Amell’s Agent Miller is open to nontraditional ideas and explanations, while Ambrose’s Agent Einstein — a redheaded medical doctor who chose to make her career in the Bureau — is far more interested in solving mysteries by using clear-cut, »
In September 1997, 28-year-old X-Files star Gillian Anderson took out full-page ads in both The Hollywood Reporter and Daily Variety thanking the cast and crew of her mega-hit Fox series after neglecting to mention creator Chris Carter, the show's writers and, most glaringly, co-star David Duchovny during her acceptance speech at the Emmys earlier that week. The E! Online rundown of the kerfuffle is particularly harsh in its assessment of the actress: On Wednesday, Anderson bought full-page ads...to pay tribute, albeit belated, to the cast and crew of her Fox show. That's right. The cast and crew. You know, the people she forgot and/or declined and/or ran out of time to thank on Sunday night when she picked up an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. "I would like to sincerely thank Chris Carter, my dear friend and creator of The X-Files," Anderson's five-sentence make-good begins. »

It was the pop culture sensation of the 1990s – and now it’s back to storm TV screens in the UK (well, Channel 5 anyway). The X-Files initially ran for 10 series’ (in addition to spawning two movies) and introduced us to two of television’s greatest heroes in the form of FBI agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson), both dedicated to exposing extraterrestrial and paranormal phenomena lurking amidst the fabric of everyday life.
However, the series wouldn’t have had half its impact without the input of composer Mark Snow, whose haunting music constantly had viewers anticipating what was around the next corner. Here are 19 memorable tracks exploring the rich yet underrated soundtrack history of this landmark show, ones confirming Snow as perhaps the unsung hero of The X-Files. »

Review of The X-Files S10, E1 by Dan Bullock.
To say it has been a while since we last saw Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) is an underestimation and while other parts of the world have already begun the 6-part series, tonight saw Channel 5 take up the cult classic pair and aired it to the UK for the first time. The X-Files team have decided to kick off this new season as a stand-alone, if the opening introduction montage is anything to go by, and this first episode is somewhat a mixed bag with its objectives but the end result is a lot of love entwined with a whole new story and refreshed plans for the narrative we’re going to see.
Creator and showrunner Chris Carter writes/directs our return to the conspiracy-detective-basement world and although it occasionally feels like they want everything into this opener, he »

Remember when The X-Files returned and the premiere was all about Mulder (David Duchovny) and his ongoing struggle to find the truth? Of course you do. And you probably thought, "Hey, what about Scully?" Fear not, Dana Katherine Scully (Gillian Anderson) is getting her time to shine in the season finale, "My Struggle II." Fox showed the opening scene last night on social media during the Super Bowl's halftime show and, well, it's a doozy. How is it a doozy? Well, like the season premiere scene, Scully recaps her story via a voiceover. We get old photos, old FBI badges, some fire, you know, the whole shebang. But—and this is a big but because it's crazy—things take another turn »
The X-Files will unleash something for your nightmares in "Home Again." The fourth episode of the six-episode event series hails from executive producer, writer and director Glen Morgan and finds Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania investigating the murder of a federal official. Things get more complicated from there, obviously, it's The X-Files. Sadly there's no It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia crossover. Here's what we can tell you about the spooky and emotional hour. There's a big crisis. Well, there's more than one crisis, but there's a something that will hit home hard for The X-Files fans. The Band-Aid Nose Man is »
The X-Files revival is finally starting to feel more confident. Now, if it can just stop shoe-horning in references to its past...
This review contains spoilers.
Like Founder’s Mutation, this is an episode with the arc plot concerning Scully’s baby William at its core, masquerading as a stand-alone story, and it blends the themes, tone and ideas of its two plots beautifully.
Twenty years ago, The X-Files did an episode called Home. It was written by James Wong, who wrote and directed Founder’s Mutation, and Glen Morgan, who wrote and directed this episode. Home was the first episode to be given a viewer discretion warning for graphic content and it wasn’t repeated by the network for years. It’s something of a Marmite episode; many loved it for its shocking content, classic horror vibe, and exploration of the nature of the nuclear family »

Young entrepreneurs are invited into a mini Dragons’ Den in this new series for inventive eight- to 14-year-olds.

While a vast majority of Americans were watching Super Bowl 50 on CBS tonight, Fox had something unique up their sleeve, offering a unique bit of counter-programming during the game's halftime festivities. The X-Files Twitter feed released a two and a half minute clip of the opening scene from The X-Files' season finale, My Struggle II, set to air on Monday, February 22. The clip features a rather shocking revelation, especially for fans of Gillian Anderson's Agent Scully.
The clip, which was only available during the halftime show and then taken down shortly thereafter, is quite similar to the pilot episode's opening scene, My Struggle, where Agent Mulder (David Duchovny) revealing his personal history with extraterrestrials. The season finale clip, though features Scully giving her own history with these X-Files, where she discusses the DNA test she is given in the premiere. She revealed that the results showed "DNA anomalies »
A new teaser for “The X-Files” was released during the halftime of Super Bowl 50 on Sunday gave a first look at the opening scene of the Fox reboot’s final episode. And boy, was it a doozy — hinting at alien DNA in Gillian Anderson‘s FBI special agent Dana Scully that gave her a seriously otherworldly appearance. Anderson narrates the two-and-a-half minute opening scene from the reboot’s season finale, set to air on Feb. 22, and recounting her long history with the bureau, her investigation with partner Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) of the paranormal and a cabal of human conspirators. »

The Entire Planet is Watching 'The X-Files' Revival, and That's Terrible News for TV What it boils down to, though, is what makes a TV show a good candidate for revival and what makes a bad one. To some, the difference may be clear. With "The X-Files," the ongoing (and unfinished) conspiracy story combined with its (stellar) episodic "monster of the week" fare makes it an excellent candidate for continued success. As long as Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are back, so are we. Steven Soderbergh Emerges from Retirement Once and For All — With Channing Tatum Soderbergh will make his comeback with "Lucky Logan," according to a story first reported by Variety. No plot synopsis has been revealed, though it is confirmed that Gregory Jacobs is attached to produce and Channing Tatum is on board to star.

A small crowd has gathered in front of the Fox theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. Carrying rolled-up copies of Variety magazine and holding up mobile phone cameras, they press their flesh as close to the metal barricade as possible. They are here to see David Duchovny, most famous for the newly resurrected science-fiction drama The X-Files, whose star is being unveiled on the Walk of Fame today. Duchovny’s closest confidantes are here, too – X-Files creator Chris Carter, Californication co-star Pamela Adlon, his manager Melanie Green, his brother – but they’re outnumbered by the strangers, the autograph seekers, and the tourists who will stop anywhere they see a fence and some security guards in La.
Duchovny is a recovering sex addict and a famously private man. »

Fox is pulling out one of its big guns in an effort to upstage CBS during Super Bowl 50’s halftime show. On Sunday, as Coldplay and Beyonce begin their Pepsi-sponsored performance, Fox will drop video from the season finale of its “X-Files” sequel. The all-new footage will be available on Fox.com, Facebook, Twitter and Hulu — but only during halftime, the network said on Thursday. Until everyone on the Internet records and shares it, that is.

Good news, 'shippers! David Duchovny has watched your Mulder and Scully tribute videos on YouTube, and he's actually kinda touched by them! From TV Guide: "For some reason, I got diverted on YouTube to some fan compilations putting Mulder-Scully stuff with songs," Duchovny explains in the video above. "I was watching a couple of these and I was like, 'Man, these are really moving!' "I kind of got it for a second," Duchovny says, "but it was more like an appreciation of how it's appreciated. Because honestly, we're going to sit here and get asked this question all day long for the rest of our lives and we don't have a f---ing clue. We're just doing it." Doing it. Heh. Here's the full clip from TV Guide: »

“Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster” was well on its way to becoming a pantheon X-Files episode, but the graveyard scene between Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and the shape-shifting lizard creature (Flight of the Conchords regular Rhys Darby) put it over the top. “Did you lose somebody recently?” Mulder asks in last night’s episode, finding his quarry, perhaps inevitably named Guy Mann, loitering near a couple of tombstones. “Yeah,” Mann says. “Myself.”It’s the sort of rueful philosophical exchange, poised on the edge of self-parody without crossing over, that could only have been written by Darin Morgan (who directed the episode as well), the brother of X-Files writer-producer Glen Morgan (no slouch himself) and the most playful and idiosyncratic of the show’s storytellers, which is saying a lot. Morgan’s first contact with the series was as a performer: He played the Flukeman in season two’s “The Host, »
