In this week’s episode, the TV Networks are unveiling their new fall schedules, which means they’re also announcing which TV shows have been canceled. Did your show make the cut? We’re going to talk about that with Peter Brown from Assignment X. In our second segment, we talk about favorite movies about journalism. Why? Umm, no reason. It has nothing to do with current events. Nope. And finally, we will end our show with what we’re dorking out about this week, including Larry Wilmore’s new podcast and which SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE cast member should run for president. We hope you enjoy our […]Read On »

Dorking Out Show | © 2016 Chris Smith/Sonia Mansfield

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode we discuss the latest chapter in the DC universe, SUICIDE SQUAD. We talk about the movie and what this means for the tidal wave of comic book movies still breaking over Hollywood. Are movies dying? Do they make movies for adults anymore? We talk about a blog post written by our own Chris Smith, and ponder the idea a certain kind of adult storytelling has nearly died out in movies … and how that’s actually not bad. Hint: TV is doing it much better. Everything we know about Rio we learned from the […]Read On »

Olly Rix stars as David, the shepherd who wins the favor of King Saul (Ray Winstone) and eventually becomes King of the Israelites himself.

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 »

THE X-FILES | © 2106 Fox

THE X-FILES is returning for a six-episode run on Fox, beginning Sunday, January 24 after the football game, then settling into its regular timeslot on Monday, January 25. Should it need explaining, THE X-FILES previously ran on Fox 1993-2002 and had two feature films, all created by Chris Carter and starring David Duchovny as UFO believer FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson as his more skeptical partner, FBI Special Agent Dr. Dana Scully. Carter, Duchovny and Anderson are all back for the new run. Back in 2014, Carter had another series, THE AFTER, set up at Amazon, but […]Read On »
