Cast: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Joel McHale, William B. Davis Writer: James Wong Director: James Wong Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 25, 2016 So this was definitely more what I was hoping for from THE X-FILES in terms of storyline and bringing the characters together in a proper reunion (see my review of the first episode here) “Founder’s Mutation” did more in the first 15 minutes for this revival than the entire previous episode did. We see Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) once again part of the FBI’s task force to […]Read On »

Cast: David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, Joel McHale, William B. Davis Writer: Chris Carter Director: Chris Carter Network: Airs on Fox, Mondays @ 8p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 24, 2016 So THE X-FILES is back and it is the first time we have seen Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) on television for the first time since 2002 and … well, it should have been a bigger deal, right? It seems that “My Struggle” was more concerned about cramming as much as it could about the past nine seasons into one episode rather than about the reunion of these […]Read On »

There’s been rumors about a third THE X-FILES movie for some time, and while promoting his hit Showtime series CALIFORNICATION, David Duchovny spoke with ASSIGNMENT X briefly about the status of the project. “There is no deal at this point,” Duchovny told us exclusively. “It’s something I would do in a second and I know Chris [Carter] and Gillian [Anderson] would be interested.” The second X-FILES movie took time to gestate, and the lack of boxoffice heat on that one has slowed things down and Duchovny admits it’s in Fox’s court now. “It’s really just a matter of generating interest […]Read On »
