Not every X-File that agents Mulder, Scully, Doggett and Reyes investigated on the original series was mysterious and deadly; sometimes, the answers were pretty goddamned dumb. Here are more than a dozen X-Files that never should have been opened.
We’re two episodes into the X-Files revival, and what we’ve gotten is pretty much a throwback to the show’s 1990s glory days. Which is a problem—because instead, this show should be taking advantage of everything that’s changed since it went off the air in 2002.

We’re anxiously awaiting Elizabeth Hand’s next novel, Hard Light. But in the meantime, did you know she was also a prolific author of tie-in novels? In an article for the Washington Post, she explains how she wrote the novelization of Twelve Monkeys, and that opened some doors.
You may have heard that The X-Files is coming back in January. If you were a fan when the show was originally on in the ‘90s—or caught it later in syndication or streaming—this is potentially great news. If you missed the whole phenomenon, we’re here for you.
The producers of the Man in the High Castle TV series spent eight years trying to get it off the ground, and having doors slammed in their faces.

On July 24th, goddess of beauty and science, Gillian Anderson (AKA Scully on The X-Files) announced on Twitter that “it’s time to start an X-Files Lego campaign.” I want to believe this will happen. Since this is 2015, Anderson took her campaign to twitter to rally the troops!
