Watch David Duchovny Unravel Fema Conspiracies on 'Full Frontal'

Watch David Duchovny Unravel Fema Conspiracies on 'Full Frontal'
Samantha Bee got David Duchovny to help her uncover the mystery behind Fema's atrocious response to hurricane damage in Puerto Rico, X-Files style. The segment was part of Full Frontal's special episode, The Great American* Puerto Rico, about the island's recovery efforts after Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The clip opens with Bee's Full Frontal staff speaking with Puerto Ricans about the lack of aid and assistance provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. While Fema has frequently faced criticism for its lackluster disaster response, its efforts in Puerto Rico were especially weak,

The ‘Full Frontal’ Puerto Rico Special is a Missed Opportunity to Put a Spotlight on People Who Could Use It Most

The ‘Full Frontal’ Puerto Rico Special is a Missed Opportunity to Put a Spotlight on People Who Could Use It Most
Let’s start out with this: a comedy special helping to focus national attention on what continues to happen in Puerto Rico very admirable goal. If the current administration has been negligent towards the needs of its people and the daily news apparatus is otherwise occupied with more salacious stories, then there’s always room for a show like “Full Frontal” to step in and help shine some much-needed attention on our fellow Americans.

“The Great American Puerto Rico,” this week’s supersized “Full Frontal” episode, travels to multiple cities around the island, but it starts off on some shaky footing. Five minutes may not seem like a long time, but when it takes that long for the special to actually get to Puerto Rican citizens talking about what’s still happening to them, it’s a sign that maybe some of this special’s priorities are a bit shuffled.

‘Roseanne’ Review: ABC’s Revival Is a Flailing Mess, But Its Politics Aren’t the Problem

‘Roseanne’ Review: ABC’s Revival Is a Flailing Mess, But Its Politics Aren’t the Problem
In an ideal world, the new “Roseanne” could exist on ABC as the conservative-leaning voice of low-income Americans, especially as a counter for the far left, uber-wealthy Pritchetts on “Modern Family.” Over the past decade, America’s Broadcast Company has made it a point to build off its Emmy-winning ratings behemoth, spawning an array of family comedies that highlight the diversity once boasted within that lone, growing, L.A. lineage. In 2018, the new families have qualitatively surpassed their inspiration: “Black-ish,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” “Speechless,” and “The Goldbergs” are all among the elite family comedies — if not all comedies — on television.

But the new “Roseanne” doesn’t try to carve a spot in the existing landscape so much as it lazily settles into comfortable grooves in a very old couch. Sure, it will shout about making America great again and title an episode “Netflix & Pill.” There are honest discussions about

‘The X-Files’ Is Done, and Please Let It Be For Good

  • Indiewire
Of all the times that, as an “X-Files” fan, I’ve had to say goodbye to the show, the first time was probably the best.

When Fox officially canceled the show in 2002, creator Chris Carter crafted a finale that played as a pretty solid series finale, given the show’s legacy. Two-parter “The Truth” brought back David Duchovny (after his season-long absence), attempted to explain the show’s entire mythology through a courtroom trial format, brought back long-deceased guest stars in the form of visions, and let Mulder and Scully make out at least once. Plus, it ended with a scene that served as a beautiful callback to the very first episode of the series: Mulder and Scully talking quietly together about the past and the future in a motel room.

In the pilot, that conversation was all about how Mulder’s quest had driven him into a life of loneliness and isolation,

"The X-Files," Season 11, Episodes 9 & 10 Recap: Reason and Faith In Harmony

  • MUBI
X-Files Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering Chris Carter's 10-episode continuation of the X-Files television series.Trust your instincts. I had a notion during the teaser sequence of “Nothing Lasts Forever” (episode 9 of The X-Files’ 11th season, written by Karen Nielsen and directed by James Wong) that it would be best recapped alongside “My Struggle IV” (the season, and possibly series finale, written and directed by Xf creator Chris Carter). Amid the sanguine, pre-opening credits hubbub—a pair of cannibalistic physicians harvest (and taste-sample) human organs, only to be interrupted by an avenging angel vigilante named Juliet Bocanegra (Carlena Britch)—there’s a fleeting audio clip on a car radio of Tad O’Malley (Joel McHale), the paranoid host of an Alex Jones-esque media pageant who was last seen in Season 10's "My Struggle II," bellowing about mind-altering gases and chem trails. It’s a

The X-Files: Season 11 Ratings

In 2016, after more than a decade off the air, The X-Files TV show returned to Fox as a limited event series. Although the ratings landscape had changed drastically during this show's off years, and the new installment only had six episodes, it topped all the other Fox TV series in the Nielsens. Can the 10 episodes of the 11th season meet or beat those figures? If Chris Carter and the cast are interested in making more episodes, will The X-Files be cancelled or renewed for season 12? Stay tuned. Season 11 of The X-Files on Fox picks up immediately after the events of the season 10 finale cliffhanger.

How 'The X-Files' Left the Door Open for Season 12

[This story contains spoilers from the season 11 finale of Fox's The X-Files.]

At first glance, it almost looked like Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) got a (relatively) happy ending during Wednesday’s season — or possibly series — finale of Fox's The X-Files.

Although they suffered brutal losses — the X-Files were shut down (again), Scully’s son William (Miles Robbins) was presumed dead and Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) may, too, be dead — Scully surprised Mulder with one big win: she was pregnant.

Viewers will recall that the long-running Fox drama ended with a...

‘The X-Files’ Season 11 finale: Are you happy with Gillian Anderson’s tearful goodbye as Scully? [Poll]

After playing FBI Agent Dana Scully on “The X-Files” for 25 years, Gillian Anderson finally said goodbye during Wednesday’s Season 11 finale. Scully’s final scene played out on a dock with longtime partner Fox Mulder (David Duchovny). After seeing their son William (Miles Robbins) gunned down by the Cigarette-Smoking Man (William B. Davis), an emotional Scully confessed that Mulder wasn’t actually William’s father. When Mulder asked, “What am I now if I’m not a father?” Scully revealed that he still was a father … because she was pregnant. Are you happy with Anderson’s exit on “The X-Files”?

This is the end of Mulder and Scully as fans know it. Whether The X-Files returns for another chapter of episodes or in another form remains to be seen, but the season 11 finale, the second event series, ended with "My Struggle IV," and changed the dynamic duo…forever?

Did 'The X-Files' Just Kill Off a Fan Favorite?

Did The X-Files just kill off one of its longest-running characters?

Throughout 11 seasons and two feature films, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) were able to rely on their boss, Assistant Director Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi). Although the relationship was occasionally strained — including this season as Skinner kept his reluctant ties to the villainous Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) quiet — no one has been a better ally to the wayward duo. But during Wednesday’s season (and possibly...

Watch The Thrilling Trailer For the Season Finale of The X-Files Season 11

The eleventh season of The X-Files is coming to an end. I don't know about you, but I've really enjoyed this latest season of The X-Files. There were some great and fun episodes. Fox has released the trailer for the season finale of the series and it looks like it will be a solid ending to the season as Mulder and Scully try to help their son. It looks like Mulder sees a lot of action in this season finale. The question is, will The X-Files continue after this or will this be the final episode of the series!?

With Gillian Anderson not coming back to the franchise, the future of the show is in limbo. But, creator Chris Carter has said that the series could continue without Gillian:

"I think that certainly The X-Files has more life in it, there are more stories to tell, with Gillian or without.

'The X-Files' Creator Chris Carter on That Finale and the Show's Future (Without Gillian Anderson)

[This story contains spoilers from the season 11 finale of Fox's The X-Files.]

The X-Files’ season — and possibly series — came to a bloody end during Wednesday’s finale.

With the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) bent on unleashing a global contagion and everyone looking for Scully’s (Gillian Anderson) son, William (Miles Robbins), nearly every recurring character — outside of Mulder (David Duchovny), Scully, Tad (Joel McHale) and Kersh (James Pickens Jr.) — died or had a near-death experience.

Performer of the Week: Jessica Jones' Janet McTeer

Performer of the Week: Jessica Jones' Janet McTeer
The Performer | Janet McTeer

The Show | Marvel’s Jessica Jones

The Episode | “Aka I Want Your Cray Cray” (March 8, 2018)

The Performance | For all intents and purposes, Alisa Jones is a villain. She’s not quite as sinister as Season 1 baddie Kilgrave, nor does she want to have the super-strength and short temper that drive her to do bad things. But when all is said and done, she is capable of killing people, and has done so in some awfully gruesome ways.

It’s a testament to McTeer’s performance, then, that we somehow end up rooting for Alisa. Episode 7 in

Did ‘The X-Files’ just set up Gillian Anderson’s exit with Scully’s ‘leap of faith’ whisper to Mulder?
Did “The X-Files” just set up Gillian Anderson‘s exit from the show she’s starred on for 11 seasons as FBI Agent Dana Scully? At the end of Wednesday’s episode, titled “Nothing Lasts Forever,” Scully whispered something to David Duchovny‘s Fox Mulder while praying in a church. “That’s my leap of faith forward,” she told him after whispering the ominous comment into his ear. “And I’d like to do it together.”

Mulder at first appeared caught off-guard by her words, then finally replied, “I’ve always wondered how this was gonna end.” As “Nothing Lasts Forever” was the last episode before next week’s Season 11 finale, it only makes sense that whatever Scully whispered to Mulder will be important to Scully’s endgame on the long-running series.

What Did Scully Whisper to Mulder on The X-Files?
The X-Files just added another mystery to the pile. In "Nothing Lasts Forever," the penultimate episode of The X-Files season 11, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) had a deeply personal conversation about where they stand, mainly in each other's lives. At one point Scully leans in and whispers in Mulder's ear. "I don't know if any God is listening, but I am standing right here," Mulder told Scully. "And I am listening. Right beside you, all ears. That's my choice." Then she whispered in his ear, pulled away and said, "That's not my four-year-old self looking for a miracle," she said. "That's my leap of faith forward. And I'd like to do...

[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “The X-Files” Season 11 Episode 9, “Nothing Lasts Forever,” follow.]

Previously, on “The X-Files”…

Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) solve weird crimes for the FBI, and a big part of their partnership is that Scully believes in God (and is a practicing Catholic). Meanwhile, Mulder believes in aliens, Scully, and not much else.

This Week’s Dossier

Somebody’s harvesting organs for non-organ-donation purposes, and Mulder and Scully are on the case to figure out why — but there’s really not much mystery to it after we get introduced to the wacky cult created by former film and TV star Barbara Beaumont (Fiona Vroom, whose goofy performance is one of the episode’s biggest positives), who is working with Dr. Luvenis (Jere Burns) to use the organs of their cult underlings to give themselves eternal beauty and life. (And hey, it seems to be working, given that Barbara’s in her 70s and Dr.

"The X-Files," Season 11, Episode 8 Recap: There Is No Getting Out Of This Town

  • MUBI
X-Files Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering Chris Carter's 10-episode continuation of the X-Files television series.Shafts of light outlined by drizzly mist. A soon-to-be massacred boy (Sebastian Billingsley-Rodriguez) separated from his mother. A shape-shifting monster lurking in the woods. Business as usual on The X-Files, though there’s something about the adeptly creepy teaser sequence of “Familiar” (the eighth episode of Season 11, penned by former Xf writer’s assistant Benjamin Van Allen, and beautifully, atmospherically directed by series newcomer Holly Dale) that feels provocatively off and strange. It’s a sensation that extends over the entirety of an installment sure to be categorized as “old school,” though it more accurately blends the freshly peculiar with the staunchly, yes, familiar. “Thanks for backing me up out there,” says FBI Special Agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) to her partner Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) after they mutually spar
