‘Stranger Things’ Star David Harbour Dissects ‘The X-Files’ and His Favorite TV Episode Ever — Turn It On Podcast

‘Stranger Things’ Star David Harbour Dissects ‘The X-Files’ and His Favorite TV Episode Ever — Turn It On Podcast
Stranger Things” star David Harbour was a struggling twentysomething actor in New York in the late 1990s when he came across what would become his favorite TV episode of all time: “The X-Files” Season 6 installment “Field Trip.”

It’s an unconventional choice: One of the show’s classic “Monster of the Week” stories, this one was a bit different. Mulder and Scully are investigating the mysterious death of a couple, but it turns out the culprit was a giant fungal growth that causes hallucinations and ingests its victims. The two of them are soon trapped themselves, and experiencing their own weird hallucinations.

“So you’re being digested by the earth and you’re hallucinating your life,” Harbour said. “When I watched it I was in my 20s, I was really into that concept. We’re all being digested by the earth and we’re all just dreaming a life that

Emmy Experts say Diana Rigg (‘Game of Thrones’) will finally win for playing Olenna Tyrell thanks to memorable death scene

Emmy Experts say Diana Rigg (‘Game of Thrones’) will finally win for playing Olenna Tyrell thanks to memorable death scene
Gold Derby’s Emmy Experts from major media outlets are nearly unanimous in predicting that Diana Rigg will finally win Best Drama Guest Actress for her stand-out role of Olenna Tyrell on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” This is Rigg’s fourth nomination for playing the fan-favorite character and she has yet to win, so why now? No doubt our awards pundits are convinced that Rigg’s memorable death scene in “The Queen’s Justice” will help push her over the edge.

Over the years many actors have won Emmys for dying on-screen, including such memorable performances as Zeljko Ivanek (“Damages” in 2008), Drea de Matteo (“The Sopranos” in 2004) and Peter Boyle (“The X-Files” in 1996). That’s likely why our Experts think Rigg has a real shot this year to claim Emmy gold

A History of Creepy Small Towns on TV, From ‘Twin Peaks’ to ‘Riverdale’ (Photos)

“Quiet town, peaceful, low maintenance. It can stay that way,” says a federal agent to the sheriff of the small town at the center of the new ABC drama “The Crossing,” airing on April 2 at 10 p.m./9 p.m. Ct. Yeah, good luck with that. In TV and movies, crazy, creepy, sci-fi, monster movie junk always goes down in quaint, tiny, Middle American suburbs far more often than it does in a big city. Who has time for aliens in New York? Give me a full on invasion or nothing. Leave the odd-goings on and the mysterious, unsolved disappearances to the town folk. This list charts the history of America’s fictional creepy small towns from kind of weird to David Lynchian-grade bananas.

Sinbad Stopped Fighting the Legacy of ‘Shazam,’ the Movie That Doesn’t Exist, Because of ‘The X-Files’

Sinbad Stopped Fighting the Legacy of ‘Shazam,’ the Movie That Doesn’t Exist, Because of ‘The X-Files’
The famed comedian Sinbad, who plays Lil Rel Howery’s father in the upcoming Fox sitcom “Rel,” has dozens of credits listed on IMDb. But it’s the one not there that is perhaps his most infamous — though if you ask Sinbad about “Shazam,” he knows exactly what you’re talking about. “It came out of nowhere,” he told IndieWire, laughing. “And nobody knows why.”

The short version of one of pop culture’s weirdest memes is as follows: A few years ago, a growing number of people began to believe that at some point in the 1990s, they had seen a movie called “Shazam.” Not the upcoming Zachary Levi superhero comedy, though — a completely different film, starring Sinbad.

It’s one example of a phenomenon known as the Mandela Effect, which was recently the focus of an “X-Files” episode from Season 11. As Mulder and Scully discussed in “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat,

‘24’ Prequel Series Tracing Jack Bauer’s Origin Story In the Works At Fox

  • Deadline
During Fox’s upfront press call in May, Fox TV Group chairman and CEO Dana Walden revealed that former 24 executive showrunner Howard Gordon is working with 24 co-creators Joel Surnow and Bob Cochran on a possible new incarnation of the real-time drama. Walden would not elaborate on what the new premise is but noted that “we are very excited about where the show would go.”

I have learned that where the potential new installment would go is the past. I hear the new 24 series, now in active development at 20th TV and Imagine TV, will serve as a prequel to the original 2001 series. Written by Gordon, Cochran and Surnow, it is said to be in the vein of the original and will trace the origin story of CTU agent Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland on 24 for eight seasons and on follow-up limited series 24: Live Another Day.

‘The Expanse’ Boss on Why a Streaming Service, Not Basic Cable, Was Always the Perfect Home for the Sci-Fi Drama

‘The Expanse’ Boss on Why a Streaming Service, Not Basic Cable, Was Always the Perfect Home for the Sci-Fi Drama
Executive producer Naren Shankar believes if he was trying to get “The Expanse” started today, “it straight-up would go to a streamer. There’s no way this show would have ever gone onto basic cable.”

IndieWire sat down with Shankar at the San Diego Comic-Con before his panel celebrating the show’s rescue, and he was in an understandably great mood. After three seasons on Syfy, the show had been officially canceled as of early May 2018, but it only took a few weeks for Amazon Studios to step in and revive the series for a fourth season.

“It was a really good working relationship on the creative side,” Shankar said of working with Syfy. “I think just the economics of television on basic cable, the fact that they didn’t own the show, that made it very tough. The deal that had created ‘The Expanse’ initially on Syfy, that’s from six years ago.

Everything You Need to Know About Dr. Lasiris on General Hospital

Carly’s care at Ferncliff has been transferred to a new physician, Doctor Lazarus, and he has terrible things planned for her on General Hospital! Of course, he spells his name Dr. Lasiris, but it still sounds the same and gives him a very sinister air. And in this case, it doesn’t seem like he’s going to be bringing anyone back to life. The man playing the good — well, not-so-good — doctor may look familiar to viewers as well. Actor Casey Biggs has appeared in numerous roles in film and television. Biggs’ biggest role was playing the role of Damar on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in the late '90s, however as a member of the Cardassian alien race, he’s not particularly recognizable under all those layers of special effects makeup! Dr. Lasiris isn’t his first foray into daytime, either. Biggs played Fenno Moore on Ryan

Chris Carter's Millennium Revisited in New Doc [Trailer]

The 90s proved to be very successful for Chris Carter and in 1996, three years into "The X-Files," Carter launched a second series: "MillenniuM."

The series starred Lance Henriksen as Frank Black, a former FBI agent with the ability to see through the eyes of serial killers and murderers. Frank was working as a consultant for a secret organization known as the Millennium Group which had some nefarious motives that didn't fully crystallize over the show's three-season run but from what I can remember, the second season did focus more on the group which seemed interested in bringing on the apocalypse.

Now, 20+ years after "MillenniuM" was cancelled, filmmaker Jason D. Morris has gone back to the show with Millennium After the Millennium, a documentary which looks back at th
