The X-Files: The Real Story Behind Season 11's Big Mulder/Skinner Brawl
In The X-Files‘ newly released Season 11 trailer, longtime frenemies Mulder and Skinner can be seen literally going at each other’s throats. What’s the nature of the duo’s beef this time around? We got the truth out of Mitch Pileggi.
RelatedThe X-Files: Exclusive Intel on William!
“It’s about Scully,” Skinner’s portrayer tells TVLine, adding that he has long attempted to telegraph to the audience that his short-fused G-man “might have a little crush on Scully” — one that that has led him to have some “resentment toward Mulder.” Combine that with the fact that both »
Stranger Things 2 Just Dropped a Timely Poster to Get You Even More Excited
The promotional poster game for "Stranger Things"'s second season has been as much a showcase of '80s pop culture as the series itself, and even though Stranger Things 2 is scheduled to drop on Netflix in a matter of days, the zeitgeist-y wink session isn't slowing just yet. »

Quotes of the Week: The Flash, B99, Supernatural, Ahs: Cult and More
The Walking Dead returns for its eighth season tonight, and we like to think our latest Quotes of the Week would get even Rick Grimes to crack a smile.
This time around, we’ve got a meta throwback on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Chidi’s nerdiest moment yet on The Good Place, a Last Man on Earth exchange that we think is supposed to be romantic and some late-night shade thrown by Jimmy Kimmel Live guest David Letterman.
Check Out Adam Savage Giving a Tour of Part of The Blade Runner 2049 Set
Feel free to be a little bit jealous of Adam Savage right now. I mean how many people, aside from those that work on the movie sets, are able to just walk in and enjoy the behind the scenes moments that are to be seen and experienced? The idea that this entire set that Savage is looking at was built within an old granite quarry located in Budapest within less than 3 days is amazing. There are a lot of people working on this project obviously and what’s even more impressive is that the scene he’s overlooking is not an
JCVD is Back With Amazon Series “Jean-Claude Van Johnson”
He’s back? I’m kind of under the impression that he should have found a different way to come back really, something that would stretch his acting talent the way he stretches while doing a full split. You know, something that looked cool in the 90’s and really impressed people. JCVD is apparently trying to mount a comeback and is coming back as what looks like a spy crossed with an actor crossed with, who knows. The main point of the show seems to be that JCVD is coming back to act as a spy for someone that needs to figure

The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere Recap: Harm Offensive
The Season 8 premiere (and 100th episode) of The Walking Dead was filled with inspiring fighting words about how the world belonged to Rick and our heroes, the allied forces were going to live in peace and harmony, they’d all be together forever, yadda, yadda, yadda. But the all-cried-out look in Rick’s red-rimmed eyes, seen in (I think) flash-forwards, served as a stark reminder that turning all that talk »

Why The Deuce is HBO’s Best Show Since The Wire
David Simon has been at the helm of a number of TV shows since he broke the TV mold with the ground breaking series The Wire. Equally, HBO has delivered countless series which attempted to reproduce The Wire magic. All of their efforts fell somewhat short, failed to deliver the pay-off, dragged mid-season or just plain fell flat. Finally The Wire has a worthy successor in HBO’s latest flagship show The Deuce. Like The Wire, The Deuce invested time in a languid building of universe and characters. Six episodes in, and little has happened in terms of the plot. David

Jemele Hill Returns To Espn After Two-Week Suspension Over Twitter Firestorm — Report
After a two-week suspension after a battle of words with Donald Trump, sports anchor Jemele Hill is set to return to Espn. According to CNN, Hill will return on Monday the sports network after a brief suspension. The events leading to Hill’s suspension started on Twitter about a month ago when the former Celebrity Apprentice host started an aggressive campaign against NFL players taking a knee in protest during the national anthem at games. Hill referred to Trump as… »
Star Trek: Discovery's James Frain on Sarek's 'Complex' Connection With Burnham and That Spock Name-Drop
Warning: This post contains spoilers for Sunday’s Star Trek: Discovery.
Spock’s father Sarek beamed his way back onto Star Trek: Discovery this week, with Burnham rescuing her adoptive dad after his shuttle was sabotaged by a Vulcan extremist who believes that “humans are inferior.” With the help of a “synthetic mindmeld augment” built by Stamets, Burnham used her psychic connection with Sarek to locate his shuttle and save his life.
Plus, in a flashback, we caught our first glimpse of Sarek’s human wife Amanda Grayson — and heard our first Spock mention! — when Sarek was forced to choose »
‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Review: The Surprises of ‘Lethe’ Include Friendly Replicators and Unfriendly Vulcans
The title of this week’s “Star Trek: Discovery,” “Lethe,” is perhaps a reference to Greek mythology, specifically one of the rivers in Hades’ underworld, the water from which would cause forgetfulness. Appropriate given that a major part of the story is about faulty memory.
[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 1, Episode 6, “Lethe” follow.]
So, it appears that at least for one subset of Vulcans, suicide bombing is not an illogical concept. The reveal that within Vulcan society there are “logic extremists” who aren’t afraid to use violence to protest the “failed experiment” that is the Federation might not seem all that Vulcan. In fact, it flies directly in the face of Idic, the central tenet of Vulcan philosophy: “infinite diversity in infinite combination.”
But it does fit with one of “Discovery’s” evolving themes: The more we get to know each of these worlds, it becomes clear that this is a universe struggling with the »

Outlander Reunion: Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan on Jamie and Claire's 'Naked, Vulnerable' Homecoming
Warning: This post contains big spoilers from Sunday’s Outlander. Proceed accordingly.
The season’s sixth installment chronicled Jamie and Claire Fraser’s reunion after decades (and the previous five episodes) apart. The bittersweet, sexy homecoming at Alexander Malcolm’s Edinburgh print shop has become emblematic of Diana Gabaldon’s book series — the exchange takes place in Voyager, the third Outlander novel — and therefore carries with it all of the expectations readers have stacked up since the book’s 1993 publication. »
Outlander Recap: The Fine Print (Shop)
Need to catch up? Check out the previous Outlander recap here.
Talk about performance anxiety.
Both on- and off-screen, this week’s episode of Outlander has a daunting charge: Bring to life the scene fans of Diana Gabaldon’s books have spent years waiting to see — Jamie and Claire’s reunion in Alexander Malcolm’s print shop — and do it perfectly.
The Frasers’ first hours together in decades have to be fraught, but not depressing. They have to be romantic, but not syrupy. And above all, they have to be sexy — Jamie and his Sassenach do, after all, spend a »

‘Outlander’ Review: Jamie and Claire’s Reunion Is a Sexy, Awkward Triumph
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for “Outlander” Season 3 Episode 6, “A. Malcolm.”]
Unrequited, Requited Love
Coming face-to-face with the spouse you were forced to give up in battle two decades ago is a pretty unnerving thing — not just emotionally but also physically. Given that Jamie had no clue Claire was about to resurface, it’s no wonder he fainted, but on an even deeper level, these are characters that have supposedly aged 20 years since they last saw each other. The nerves, self-consciousness and innate fear of acceptance that situation would bring are pretty heavy; you’ve been carrying around this memory of a person for all those years. Not only do you want them to see you the same, but you wonder how they’ll look, act and have aged in their wisdom too.
Luckily this is television and both stars are just as pretty naked as they are clothed (Claire dyed her hair and Jamie has glasses, no biggie), so the »

Will X-Men: New Mutants Actually Be A Trilogy?
The New Mutants are a Marvel Comics superhero team. Like the name suggests, the members consist of teenage students at Professor X’s school, meaning that they served as a sort of replacement for the initial X-Men line-up, who had become adults by that point in time. The initial line-up of the New Mutants consisted of Cannonball, Karma, Mirage, Sunspot, and Wolfsbane, but it should come as no surprise to learn that the superhero team has seen numerous changes over the course of its existence. Regardless, the New Mutants were created to capitalize on the success of the X-Men, but as
