"The X-Files," Season 11, Episode 2 Recap: What World Are You Living In?

X-Files Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering Chris Carter's 10-episode continuation of the X-Files television series.Life is a series of moments, strung together, rarely with much sensitivity or sense. Let’s look at two such moments, each from the teaser sequence of The X-Files’ second episode of its eleventh season (an installment titled “This,” written and directed by series executive producer Glen Morgan). The first: A car—its radio blasting the Ramones’ cover of “California Sun”—races toward a destination. The second: A pair of people—colleagues at first, then friends, then lovers, now middle-aged familiars—rests on a couch. One moment active, one moment passive, both on a collision course. But at this juncture, each instant exists unto itself. “There is only this—all else is unreal,” mused a character in Terrence Malick’s great romantic historical The New World (2005).

'The X-Files': Creator Responds to Gillian Anderson's Threats to Leave, Fans React to Horrific Premiere Reveal

'The X-Files': Creator Responds to Gillian Anderson's Threats to Leave, Fans React to Horrific Premiere Reveal
Gillian Anderson's threats to quit The X-Files have gotten an official response.

The 49-year-old actress has previously said that after this season of X-Files airs, she's done playing Agent Dana Scully. The 11th season of the sci-fi series premiered on Fox on Wednesday.

The show's creator, Chris Carter, responded to Anderson's claims during a Reddit Ama with fans on Tuesday, saying, “For me, the show has always been Mulder and Scully. So the idea of doing the show without her isn’t something I’ve ever had to consider.”

He also hinted that the season finale might address Anderson's need to leave. When a fan asked if Scully received "a proper goodbye," Carter teased, “I think you will want to sit down and watch the finale very carefully.”

Carter was also asked about Anderson by Entertainment Weekly ahead of the revival's latest 10-episode installment, to which he says she might be written off but she may also

Chilly Scenes of Winter

Joan Micklin Silver applies sensitive direction to Ann Beattie’s novel about a lonely guy trying to win back his girlfriend, and going about it in all the wrong ways. John Heard is excellent as Charles, who can’t understand why Laura (Mary Beth Hurt) has gone back to her husband and child. The whole thing plays out during a snowy winter in Salt Lake City… which is not the place to expect unrealistic romantic dreams to come true.

The Second Civil War

Is satire obsolete? Our appalling present political reality has surpassed some of the wildest jokes in director Joe Dante's 'exaggerated, outrageous' 1997 cable movie. An immigration squabble snowballs until a renegade state governor closes his border and threatens to secede from the Union. It's a 'political idiocy' version of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World ... and nineteen years later, we're stuck living it.

Chris Rock's Rep Says Host Is Not Rewriting Script for Oscars Ceremony, as More Academy Voters Weigh In on Controversy
Chris Rock isn't quite done preparing for the Oscars - but not because he's writing a new script. On Monday, Rock's rep refuted claims that the host rewrote his opening monologue for the awards ceremony following the #OscarSoWhite controversy. "Regarding Reggie Hudlin's comments about Chris Rock's Oscar hosting duties, neither he nor anyone else speaks for Chris," the comedian's publicist, Leslie Sloane, told The Hollywood Reporter. Over the weekend, Oscar co-producer Reggie Hudlin suggested that Rock had made significant changes to his monologue, saying the host told him, "I'm throwing out the show I wrote and writing a new show.

Unusual Suspects: A Look Back at the Supporting Cast of The X-Files

  • DailyDead
[Originally appeared in Deadly Magazine #5] For nine seasons (and two feature films), fans of The X-Files became engrossed with FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully’s search for the truth and along the way, we were introduced to numerous supporting characters that helped them (or did their damnedest to foil their efforts) along the way. Here’s a look back at some of The X-Files’ greatest unusual suspects.

Deep Throat (Jerry Hardin)

Mulder’s first informant when the X-Files division of the FBI was established. A member of The Syndicate who wanted to expose some of the secrets the government had tried desperately to keep hidden, Deep Throat was tragically gunned down while trading an alien embryo for Mulder’s life in the first season finale, “The Erlenmeyer Flask.”

Open Sesame: The X-Files Season 1’s Mythology

Approximately four months ago, X-Files fans everywhere collectively freaked out as Fox announced its plan for a six-episode revival of the series, more than a decade after the show had ended. An actual UFO sighting could doubtfully cause such an effect from hardcore aficionados who have drooled over Mulder’s deadpan dark humor and Scully’s magnificent eye rolls for years. Then on July 7, Fox released a trailer for the re-airing of the series and called for an X-Files marathon challenge where participants watch an episode per day, as the revival was only 201 days away. Sound on Sight will be joining in the nostalgic fun, posting weekly articles on each season’s mythology, standalone titles, character development, and finally, a spotlight on a favorite episode.

Created by Chris Carter, the first episode of The X-Files aired on September 10, 1993. For each season, we will be dividing titles into those that follow

Revisiting Star Trek Tng: When The Bough Breaks

Review James Hunt Jan 25, 2013

The Enterprise's children are abducted by infertile artists in this week's Star Trek: Tng look-back. Here's what James made of it all...

This review contains spoilers.

1.17 When The Bough Breaks

The Enterprise follows a strange "breadcrumb trail" of energy to an apparently abandoned star system. Riker, arriving on the bridge fresh from bumping into some of the ship's many families (heretofore almost entirely unseen) is pleased to learn that they've reached Epsilon Mynos, the home of the ancient, mythical planet of Aldea, a world where computers take care of your every need and leave you to pursue the arts. But spoiler alert! It turns out it's not so mythical after all.

Troi suddently senses the presence of... something -- feelings, or whatever -- which turns out to be the planet Aldea. Because apparently, she's so sensitive she can detect an entire civilisation (of about nine people) from hundreds,

Quick Shooter: A Clint Eastwood Profile (Part 3)

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood in the third of a five-part feature (read parts one and two)...

“You’ve got to keep stretching out and trying other stuff,” observed actor and director Clint Eastwood. “I could have chosen a lot of scripts that were different than Bronco Billy [1980], that were less of a challenge but it was worth trying.” The native of San Francisco, California explains, “It’s about the American Dream, and Billy’s dream that he fought so hard for. It’s all the context of this outdated Wild West show that has absolutely no chance of being a hit. But it’s sweet. It’s pure.” The subject matter resembles the work of two legendary Hollywood filmmakers. “My first thought was that Frank Capra [It’s a Wonderful Life] or Preston Sturges [Sullivan’s Travels] might have done it in their heyday. It has some values that were interesting to

Law & Order: Los Angeles Review: "Reseda"

  • TVfanatic
This week’s Law & Order: Los Angeles episode was full of criminal activity.

The real problems in "Reseda" arose in the prosecution when the D.A.’s office can’t stick the charges they want against repeat offender Stanley Vaughn and can’t stop the D.A. of San Bernardino from bringing up their star witness on larceny charges.

T.J. and Morales are still working out the kinks within their partnership. There is a great effort to show the bonding between the two men. The detectives seem to have balanced out their dialogue and provide a decent back and forth working their leads.

Morales and Tj even go on two home raids, where Tj’s previous hesitation towards danger appears to have disappeared.

Although this gets him in trouble in the second raid, I would like to focus a little on the first. The colorfully dressed landlady is a

'Law & Order: Los Angeles' review: New coast, same formula

If you read the title "Law & Order: Los Angeles," you know pretty well what to expect from the TV show, right?

And you'd be right, because while the original "Law & Order" is no more and the new show -- which debuts at 10 p.m. Et Wednesday -- is set on the opposite coast, it's still part of the "Law & Order" brand, which means the cops are smart, the prosecutors dogged and the perps doomed. That, and you'll hear the "chung-chung" sound several times per episode.

On all those counts, "L&O: La" delivers. There's a baseline of quality -- well-produced, plot-driven, generally smartly cast and acted -- to all the "L&O" shows, and it's evident here as well. Starting from there, we're going to look at the individual elements in the new show and how well they measure up to the standard set by 40-plus previous seasons of the various "Law & Orders.
