MY STRUGGLE III X-Files Season 11 off to Controversial Fast Pace

MY STRUGGLE III X-Files Season 11

my struggle

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not watched the episode TURN AWAY NOW!!!

MY STRUGGLE III X-Files Season 11 off to Controversial Fast Pace


So, best that I can tell, MY STRUGGLE 3 picks up right about at the beginning of MY STRUGGLE 2.

If you go back to the beginning of MS2, after the opening sequence, we see Scully looking for Mulder in his office, sits down at the desk and watches computer screen with TAD back on the air.

Now skip to post opening sequence of MS3. For a split second we see Scully in that same moment as we zoom into her eyes. Next moment Mulder and medical team is working with a past out comatose Scully.

My theory is that All of My Struggle 2 was a either a vision controlled by William, or somehow that beam of light form the ARV/UFO at the end of MS2 sent Dana’s consciousness back, in sense she actually lived those moments physically, not just in her mind. The journey back could be some alien tech that overwhelms the mind.

As much as I like the latter, I am convinced it is all William. Chris Carter said Episode ten will be WIlliam’s Struggle. MS1 was Mulder’s Struggle. MS2 Was Scully’s.

I want to call MS3 Walter Skinner’s Struggle, but Karl Gerhard Bush got the opening monologue.

Or perhaps, based on fan reaction last night, MS3 is Chris Carter’s struggle. 25 years later WHAT DO WE DO NOW!?!?!?!?!

I saw a lot of speculation that perhaps MS3 erases Babylon. The claim is Miller and Einstein did not recognize Scully. After watching the episode three times last night, I did not see evidence that they did not know Mulder and Scully. They did not seem overly close or concerned, true. But they only worked on one case together. They are coworkers that barely know each other. Pre-MS2  they have not had an overly dramatic moment to share. Einstein basically was appalled by Mulder as an agent, willing to take acid to discover “truth”. Miller was nothing more than a professional agent working with Scully. He has not been called into save Mulder yet. It is possible they are part of the conspiracy, which would explain how Miller actually found Mulder in MS2. This is a RED HERRING (As a fan of CLUE I use this line at every opportunity lol)

Of course, with Monster of the Week episodic format, there is no guarantee we are getting these episodes in chronological order to the canon. In fact MOTW often seems to have nothing to do with canon. Never mind the comedic episodes.

Continuity seems the least important issue to Chris Carter. Knowing this I watch with an open mind and stay in the moment – Out of sight out of mind. I assume I share this trait with Chris.

All that being said, My Struggle 3 was great. I loved it. I even loved NOT loving the twist. Even more I love the fan explosion on twitter and other platforms discussing the twist. We are all out there freaking out, but it is fun. Balanced with the proper consumption of adult beverages with sweet and salty snacks, last night was an event. An ALL DAY EVENT!

On twitter we all counted down the days, hours and minutes to show time. We live tweeted with millions of fans – I made at least 10 new friends online last night. We kept the party going for hours after. This was our NEW YEARS DAY celebration. But the worst part does not come close to a Mariah Carry EFF UP.

Last night is why I keep coming back, and keep going to comic cons – even though I hate comic cons I love all of you fan friends that have become family – and why I am going to Australia next month. I am 45 years old and this is 25 years of my life. The same 25 years I have known my wife. (Started dating 6 months before The X-Files first aired).

Star Wars owns the 5yo in me, but X-Files is my adulthood fantasy world. My dreams still prefer Superman – love to fly as I sleep. HOPE!

I have heard folks say I’M DONE for 17 years, but there are more of us than ever.

Last night, despite the twist that is freaking every one out (Which I called years ago with everyone always saying SHUT UP WALT every time I suggest the very thing – MSR is serious) was an amazing hour of X-Files. Amazing performances from all gave this a more ensemble cast feel. Mitch Pileggi, William Davis and Annabeth Gish may have had equal or more screen time to David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. All of the above seemed more present and intense.

The story commanded it; they surpassed expectations. TWITTER responded. Annabeth and Mitch fans went nuts last night. They looked great and

My initial reaction is similar to My Struggle 1. This is not the X-Files we grew up with. MS1 had almost too much alien stuff to see. MS3 was just a swift pace, as if Chris was forced to squeeze a double episode into one hour.

From the second we see Scully sitting at the desk to the time she is already in the hospital must be less than a minute.

A few seconds later we see Mulder in a car chase. Usually Mulder just looks through files as he inner monologues.

As Scully is trying to get back to work, Karl and Monica confront Skinner, but Skinner controls the day, as far as he thinks. Another great Skinner line will live in infamy – which is the perfect mirror for “Pucker up and kiss my ass”.

Get your ass back in the carI’m not finished,”

The fast cuts give the highest MTV editor whiplash.

We meet the new (to us) Syndicate, At one point Karl says, “My enemies are LEGION”. Legion of course has a lot of potential meaning – from X-Men series to famous hackers. LEGION sticks in my mind as something we should keep an eye on moving forward.

Of course, THIS IS CHRIS CARTER. What actually is real? What is a dream? What is altered state?

Too many X-Files fans don’t think like SciFi fans. Continuity is fluid in SciFi.

The second I heard about the multiverse episode in a few weeks, my mind jumps to DC Comics and MARVEL Entertainment. Over the past 80 years there have been many incarnations of the famous superheroes. Once labeled as GOLDEN AGE, SILVER AGE etc,, eventually the idea of a multiverse explained away EVERY continuity issue. Oh that was Superman from Earth 634. That’s why he can shoot lasers from his fingers and pull a rubberized body suit from his chest. DUH! (I hate the comic book snobs – we are geeks, get over ourselves, PLEASE)

I found the trick to really LOVING SciFi is to let go of your sense of reality. To understand SciFi is to understand the total possibility of this universe, and others.

Imagine a peasant from 1500s was ripped from her home in a European village and then dropped in 2018 Times Square. 1927 Metropolis does not come close to today’s reality.

In 2018 we have micro-processing, cell phones, nuclear power, new powerful lasers, and any day now about to get commercial/recreational space travel. X-Files has never been the place for new and original. I am pretty sure every episode has a root in some horrible movie only a few of us have seen during sleepless nights 20-30 years ago, the old Creature Features or MST 3000.

But we get those same old stories with David and Gillian and Mitch. We get the stories re-imagined with Glen, James, Darin, and others. And we have the master mind Chris Carter, the imperfect genius task master, that -for all our complaints – is the real reason we are all here today.

The X-Files is a better version of all those B movie ScFi and Horror Flicks. It has far surpassed all expectations. The fact we are getting more content 25 years later – with the talent we all love – is a miracle. A blessing I choose to embrace wholeheartedly.

EW: David Duchovny explains why he won’t be writing for The X-Files season 11

If Mulder invites Scully for another round of late-night baseball when The X-Files returns for its 11th season, David Duchovny won’t be the writer behind the magic.

Duchovny has confirmed to EW that he will not be writing or directing for The X-Files in its next 10-episode season, though that’s not for lack of trying. “I always say if I have an idea, I would love to write and direct it,” Duchovny says.

The X-Files star was no stranger to the creative process during the series’ original run. Duchovny wrote and directed two episodes — season 6’s “The Unnatural” and season 7’s “Hollywood A.D.” — and collaborated with series creator Chris Carter and writer Howard Gordon (Homeland) on the stories of four episodes in the sci-fi drama’s second and third seasons. In addition, Duchovny returned to the show after departing as a regular to direct a pivotal episode near the end of the ninth season, shortly before what was then the series finale.

The actor tells EW that Carter offered him the chance to write and direct in season 11, but it didn’t come together. “I had an idea that I was toying with, which is actually a movie idea,” Duchovny says, “and I was trying to figure out if I could transpose it into being an X-File. Because then you have to add two characters that demand a lot of time, Mulder and Scully. And you have to tell it in 45 minutes, so you’ve got to shrink it in half while adding two major characters. And in the end, I couldn’t see how it would work.”

Time constraints added to the complication. Even though the Fox drama’s upcoming 10-episode run is four episodes longer than season 10, which aired as an event series in 2016, Duchovny hesitated to minimize his character’s involvement in so much of the story.

“If I’m going to direct a show,” he explains, “it necessitates that I’m very light in the [previous episode] so I can prep it, and it necessitates that I’m somewhat light in the show afterwards, so that I can do post. So really what I’m asking for, if I’m directing an X-File, is, Okay, you’re doing 10, but I’ve got to be light in three out of those 10. And that’s just not fair, really.”

Seven writers for the new season — including vets like Carter, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, and James Wong, all of whom wrote for season 10 — were announced in June. Each of season 10’s six episodes was directed by its writer; Fox has not yet confirmed EW’s inquiries as to whether every season 11 writer is also set to direct.

“Chris was very generous in asking me to do it,” Duchovny says. “I hope I didn’t disappoint him by not coming through, but I’ll just be acting.”

As for what he’ll be acting in, Duchovny says (as of his conversation with EW on July 14) he hasn’t seen a script — and that’s not for lack of trying, either.

“I text Chris every day nudging him to send me whatever he’s got,” he says. “I’m supposed to get something very soon. Maybe today. Maybe tomorrow.”

The X-Files season 11 begins production in Vancouver later this summer.

David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson Talk X-files Season 11 (E! Red Carpet)

David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson on “X-Files” Revival | E! Live from the Red Carpet

David and Gillian answered several X-files related questions about the upcoming Season 11. When asked about the Season 10 cliffhanger with Mulder and Scully, both seem to be in the dark about what Chris Carter has planned for their characters. “Chris Carter has not told me yet whether I’ve managed to save the human race” Gillian told E! “But given that we’re doing ten episodes that I save it for ten episodes worth of time.”

David also commented on something that MANY fans have literally been begging for on twitter, blogs and other social media platforms – the possibility of him contributing to the writing team “I don’t think that the people playing the characters are the best judges of where the show should go. Nor do I think the fans are to be honest with you”

(insert screaming face emoji here)

I do think that the show would benefit from David contributing to the story arcs as he did in the past. Some of my favorite mythology episode arcs were those that he developed with Chris Carter. They were some of the best episodes of the series in my opinion.

In regards to doing an X-files musical episode David laughed and said “I don’t think that’s a good idea but I’d be down for it. Sure.” Gillian on the other hand made it clear it was not something she would want to do “No. Nah-uh. No. No. No” she said.

While we clearly adore David’s music and have no doubt they could both make it work, I would have to side with Gillian on this one.


David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson at the FOX Upfronts & Webby Awards

Excited for The X-files Season 11 yet? We’re definitely getting there! Here is something to hold you over until we (hopefully) start getting set pictures in August.

The elephant in the room – David’s arm is in a sling! We don’t know what happened but we hope it wasn’t too painful and hope he’s on his way to a speedy recovery. Between his injury and Gillian Anderson’s broken foot, it was an interesting sight on stage at the Webby Awards. David presented Gillian with the Best Actress award for her critically acclaimed role on The Fall.

The Webby awards ceremony will be available to watch on Youtube tomorrow.

In the meantime, we have some clips we have gathered from around the Twitterverse.
