Review: Better Things, Season 1

Better Things didn’t exist as far as I knew. I seldom watch FX so I hadn’t seen teasers for it. I kept hearing this name Pamela Adlon in connection with other things. I thought who the heck is Pamela Adlon? Then I read an ecstatic review of the first two episodes of season 2 of Better Things.

Watch This: Trailer for The X-Files

With a mere six-episode story to tell, The X-Files comes to Fox, debuting with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016. It’s been 13 years since David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson told the far-out stories of Mulder and Scully. Their personalities remain unchanged.

Not only are some of the original actors returning, some of the original writers and directors are back. If you loved The X-Files before, you’re probably going to love it again. It looks like it will be true to the original in every way.

Some of the guest stars for the series are Joel McHale, Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose, Annabeth Gish, Annet Mahendru, Rhys Darby, Kumail Nanjiani, and William B. Davis.

In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee.

Were you a faithful fan of the original series? Will you be watching this small gift from The X-Files?

The X Files is Coming Back!

I don’t know if Mulder is ready, but the audience out here (me!) is ready. Yep, ready for all 6 new episodes of The X Files promised to us by FOX.

Yippee! We’re gonna get more stories with David Duchovney and Gillian Anderson as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. A 13 year hiatus is plenty long. Too long. The X Files creator Chris Carter told TV Line, “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

Sure, Forbes cynically states that the only reason this is happening is for Netflix’s streaming rights. It ain’t for the fans, says Forbes. I guess the folks at Forbes think everything else that happens on TV or in the movies isn’t done for money.

There’s no word on whether the story will take up where it left off 13 years ago to tie up loose ends or will be a stand alone mini-series. It wouldn’t hurt to binge watch all 9 years worth of past episodes, just to be ready. You can never be too ready for a new conspiracy, right?

I’m actually happy the revival is only going to be 6 episodes. Wonderful as this nostalgic return of an old favorite may be, I don’t want anything to distract Gillian Anderson from the time needed to fulfill her true purpose in life: playing Stella Gibson on The Fall.

The mini-series starts filming this summer. An air date has not been announced.
