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.

The X-Files GIF – Can we have an animated comedy series, 1970s Abbott & Costello Style?

The X-Files GIF

Editorial by WALT FRASIER @WALTFRASIER

Can we have an animated X-Files comedy series, ala 1970s Abbott & Costello Style?The X-Files

Anyone remember 1970s cartoons. I am thinking of Abbott & Costello, Three Stooges and The Jackson 5ive in particular. Hanna-Barbera and similar Productions gave new life to classics. We even had some great animated Star Trek stories.

Bud Abbott actually voiced the cartoon with another actor playing Lou Costello. For my generation it forced sayings like ‘I WANT MY MOMMA’ and ‘AAAAAABBBOOOOOOTTTTT’ into our psyche as classic A&C. Years later I played Lou Costello at events as part of a tribute comedy team, performing their classic routines and got to know them for their full artistry.

 

As a superhero geek, I have always been more about the animated and live action adaptations of my favorite characters – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash – than sitting down with the actual comics.

Similarly I have yet to get into the X-Files comics, and the fan-fiction just is not my thing. Sorry to many friends that read and write popular fan fiction. I will gladly laugh at a brief erotica MSR but I move on quickly.

The X-Files

Anime

But I want more of what I see above. The GIF looks very similar to those 1960s and 1970s classics. As David has said, we have three different Mulder/Scully character types. Leave the Monster of the week and Mythology Mulder – Scully alone with 6-8 episode arcs. Peel away the comedy world as a spin off.

Chris Carter could have an outlet for his comedy episodes, protecting our live action time from fiasco’s like Babylon.  Vince and Darren can still contribute comedy to live action. CC is banned, saving him from himself!

FOX can introduce this franchise and these characters to a younger audience, delivering millions of hours of future syndication watching of the original episodes.

The X-Files

Crossover?

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson could voice over and entire season in under a week, giving us tons of new content w/o inconveniencing the talent. Gillian could record her lines from UK studio.

We could revisit dozens of our favorite monsters. What ever happened to Monkey Boy, Flukeman, and… Darin only played two roles?

The Bounty Hunter can be their retired quirky neighbor.

Mitch Pileggi’s Walter Skinner can be like Mike the Cop, always getting mad at Mulder. You know, exactly what happens now.

The X-Files

8yo Mulder & Scully solve mysteries – Encyclopedia Brown meets Supernatural

And then we can have random celebrity cameos like old Scooby Doo Mysteries.
OR even better, Chris Carter himself can take on Stan Lee type cameos in every episode, playing 1-liner characters – janitor. cabbie, security guard, etc.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES!!!

X-Files My Struggle up to date with the science? Ununpentium Element 115

X-Files 2016 up to date with the science Ununpentium Element 115

X-Files is back and like past episodes and movies, creator Chris Carter always roots his science fiction in real science and popular conspiracy theories. After watching The X-Files “My Struggle” for a fifth time tonight, my geeky side got curious.

X-Files ARV

ARV from The X-Files: My Struggle

In a recent phone conference call, Chris Carter admitted he attended conventions and conferences filled with conspiracy theorists and that we would be amazed and surprised at the numerous Americans and the theories they hold dear.

Sounds like to many, X-Files is a documentary, not fiction.

arv1

But some of the science is real. Well at least based in real theories at least.

Zero-point energy, also called quantum vacuum zero-point energy, is the lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical physical system may have; it is the energy of its ground stateSource Wiki

GARNER: It runs on .. so called zero point energy.

MULDER: Free energy?

O’MALLEY (Joel McHale): Available since the 1940s

The Zero Point Energy (ZPE) is an intrinsic and unavoidable part of quantum physics. The ZPE has been studied, both theoretically and experimentally, since the discovery of quantum mechanics in the 1920s and there can be no doubt that the ZPE is a real physical effect. SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN

Conspiracy Theories that Tesla discovered FREE self sustaining energy over 100 years ago have floated for years. The big oil companies have buried this in favor of trillions in oil sales, as pointed out by Mulder. CLICK HERE for one fear mongering report.

Mulder

Ununpentium

SOURCE WIKI https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ununpentium

MULDER: Gravity Warp Drive, but how?

GARNER: Element 115. Ununpentium. 

MULDER: Where did you get it?

Not that there really are ARVs out there, but Ununpentium Element 115 is real. In fact, just this past December 2015, it was recognized by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). So if you go back to college and take Chemistry, your periodic tables will soon need to be updated.

ARV

UUP, you know me!!

The element was named back in 1979 by the IUPAC.

The element was first synthetically created in 2003 by American and Russian teams. 4 atoms – I know its amazing – were created and gone in 100 milliseconds.

A number of scientific teams tried to recreate the experiments from 2003. In 2015 a team from Berkeley published they had successfully produced the element.

But with a half-life of only 220 milliseconds, Alien Replica Vehicles would need a lot of UUP and some very impressive alien technology to stabilize the highly radioactive element.

Founder's Mutation

Thirteen years after the original series run, the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES is a thrilling, six-episode event series from creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY. Mitch Pileggi also returns as FBI ASST. DIR. WALTER SKINNER, Mulder and Scully’s boss, who walks a fine line between loyalty to these investigators and accountability to his superiors. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history. THE X-FILES debuts with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), following the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The upcoming event series will encompass a mixture of stand-alone episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee. The all-new episodes will feature appearances by guest stars, including Joel McHale (“Community”), Robbie Amell (“The Flash”), Lauren Ambrose (“Dig,” “Six Feet Under”), Annabeth Gish (“The Bridge”), Annet Mahendru (“The Americans”), Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”), Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man.” Three of the episodes are written and directed by Chris Carter, with the remaining new episodes written and directed by original series veterans Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong.

LISTEN HERE and read more epsiode info below…

Season 1 Episode 4 CONDUIT
Originally Aired October 1, 1993
Written by Alex Gansa & Howard Gordon
Directed by Daniel Sackheim

mulderonfleek

WIKI – As Section Chief Scott Blevins (Charles Cioffi) expresses his concern with the direction of the X-Files department, Mulder becomes obsessed with solving a case that closely parallels an encounter he experienced as a child, which dealt with alien abduction and an exploration of Mulder’s determination to find his sister, Samantha Mulder (Vanessa Morley). Also guest stars Don Gibb.

IMDB – Mulder becomes obsessed with solving a case that closely parallels an “encounter” he experienced as a child.

MORE FROM DUCHOVNIACS – Mommy Morris is played by Carrie Snodgrass, who starred in one of my favorite Clint Eastwood Westerns, PALE FACE. Also Michael Cavanagh, also a veteran of a few Eastwood flicks, and one of the busiest working character men in Hollywood – including the movie, RED DRAGON – whose plot mirrors the current TV show timeline. One of the first where Mulder deals with the loss of his sister, we see a huge emotional range form David Duchovny.

Season 1 Episode 5 Jersey Devil
Originally Aired October 8, 1993
Written by Chris Carter
Directed by Joe Napolitano

capture-20150711-000704

WIKI – The murder of a homeless man which is very similar in detail to a murder committed in 1947 leads Mulder and Scully to the legendary man-beast the Jersey Devil (Claire Stansfield) roaming in the forests surrounding Atlantic City. Also guest stars Wayne Tippit, Gregory Sierra, Jill Teed, Andrew Airlie, Bill Dow, and David Lewis.

IMDB – Mulder and Scully track a legendary creature that has roamed the New Jersey countryside for over 40 years.
The_Jersey_Devil_Male_Sketch

MORE FROM DUCHOVNIACS – The first time Chris Carter tries to separate Mulder and Scully. I wonder if this was an attempt to take the show in a very poorly chosen 1980s direction. Lets see more personal lives sit-com style? Thankfully the concept is ditched by end of the episode. While funny to see this once, could have killed the show.

Season 1 Episode 6 SHADOWS
Originally Aired October 22, 1993
Written by Glen Morgan & James Wong
Directed by Michael Katleman

 

WIKI – When an unseen force commits several murders where a young woman is present, Mulder suspects that it is the spirit of the woman’s former boss who was believed to have committed suicide but was actually murdered and he is protecting her from his business partner. Guest starring Barry Primus and Lisa Waltz

IMDB – Mulder and Scully investigate the deaths of two men believed to have been killed by a powerful psychokinetic force.

MORE FROM DUCHOVNIACS – As I say on twitter and on the podcast, Mulder and Scully are often called in as experts when it is convenient, as seen in this episode, SQUEEZE and the upcoming GHOST IN THE MACHINE. But the above average skills of Mulder and Scully do the end run circle around those trying to control them – as they almost always do.
