Not a summer goes by without new reports that The X-Files will return.
Show creator Chris Carter this week admitted that "there certainly have been conversations" about a comeback of some sort, but is that really a good idea?
The supernatural drama originally ran on Fox from 1993 to 2002, spanning 202 episodes over nine seasons. The first three were fantastic, the following six more than a bit hit-and-miss.
Rumours of a third movie have been bubbling ever since the second flopped onto our screens six years ago.
Carter has said that the planned movie »
It has been 21 years since The X-Files changed the landscape of genre television. The iconic serialized show paved the way for series like Lost and brought a new respect to science fiction on the small screen. Nine seasons and two films later, we are still waiting to see more of the adventures of Mulder and Scully. Unfortunately, The X-Files: I Want To Believe underperformed dramatically at the box office and everyone involved have moved on to other projects. So, what does that leave? »

While the first X-Files movie - release during the height of the series' popularity in 1998 - was a box office hit, the same can't be said its a sequel. Released in 2008, a full decade after the first one, The X-Files: I Want To Believe cost only $35 million to make, but wound up only making $20.9 here and $47 million abroad. These numbers didn't exactly tell the studio that audiences were clamoring for more stories featuring FBI Agents Mulder and Scully, so the idea of a third movie has long been considered an unlikely possibility. All that out there, David Duchovny still isn't giving up hope that there is a future for the X-Files. With Duchovny's long-running showtime series Californiacatation coming to an end this weekend, Rolling Stone recently sat down to talk with the actor, and during the course of the interview the X-Files star admitted that he still hasn't quite put »
With the series finale of Californication airing this weekend, David Duchovny says he feels like he has comfortably closed the book on his character Hank Moody. That's not the case, though, for another one of his iconic characters: The X-Files' Fox Mulder. During an in-depth interview with Rolling Stone about the end of the long-running Showtime drama, which will run next week after the finale, he said that he would be up for making a sequel to the 2008 movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

The years 2008 and 2009 really weren’t that long ago. So it seems a bit odd to reflect on Breaking Bad—it just wrapped its final season in September and is an Emmys hopeful this year—or Lady Gaga when they are still relevant today. “Remember when” just doesn’t carry as much meaning here as it does with the earlier episodes in VH1′s I Love the 2000s series.
That being said, the show’s brilliant talking heads brought the last two installments in the series to life. (I certainly wasn’t sorry I spent my Saturday night watching them, »

Billy Connolly presents the final part of his moving, yet still hilarious, ITV documentary series Big Send Off tonight (May 14).
The Big Yin is best known for his prolific stand-up comedy career over the past six decades, but he has often shown off many different strings to his bow, taking in the world of TV, film, music and charity work.
To mark Connolly's latest excellent project, Digital Spy takes a look at just some of his best moments outside his stand-up work.
1. The Humblebums
Before Billy started his stand-up career, he sang with the late Gerry Rafferty of 'Baker Street' fame in the folk group The Humblebums, along with Tam Harvey. Largely forgotten outside the folk world, they did produce some genuinely brilliant tracks, both moving and funny. Their gigs often featured Connolly chatting to the audience between songs, eventually leading to him giving the comedy thing a go full-time. »

I’ve always been a fan of David Duchovny’s work and so it’s great news that he’s staying on our TV screens as he’s signed up for 13-episode NBC series Aquarius, written by John McNamara who was also behind In Plain Sight and the vastly underrated Maria Bello-starring Us version of Prime Suspect.
The Californication and The X-Files man will head back to 1960s La to play a Police sergeant who’s got a number of problems and what’s described as a ‘complicated personal life’, as most cops appear to have these days – they need a back story after all. The the series, he is tracking down a minor criminal who’s luring vulnerable woman into his cult and who is this infamous fellow? It’s Charles Manson. We hear that currently it’s planned for a limited run, with a possible future looking »

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2008 - another great year for lesser-seen gems...
For some, 2008 will be memorable as the year of The Dark Knight, with its astonishingly unhinged turn from the late Heath Ledger. Alternatively, it could be remembered as the year a legion Indiana Jones fans left cinemas glum-faced, having sat through Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.
Elsewhere, Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan sang and danced on a Greek island in Mamma Mia!, while Will Smith played an alcoholic superhero in Hancock. But as usual, 2008 offered plenty of watchable movies outside the top 10, which is where we swoop in - like Hancock after a bottle of gin.
So as usual, here's our selection of 25 underappreciated films from the year 2008 - starting with a British horror film starring Michael Fassbender...
