The Fall S3 E6 Their Solitary Way

The final episode of season 3 of The Fall is “Their Solitary Way.” The story did not end the way Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) wanted. It didn’t end well for Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) either.

The Competent Female Sidekick Trope

I want to point out some interesting work from other sites today. The first is a short video that I found on whohaha.com. (If you haven’t subscribed to WhoHaHa yet, you really must.) The video is from Saturday Night Live and a bit gross, but give it a chance. Continue reading “The Competent Female Sidekick Trope”

The Old Ain’t Dead Top 10 of 2015

Old Ain’t Dead just me, watching whatever looks good. To me. I don’t watch everything. I don’t have a “best of 2015” list because I don’t have a clue as to what most of 2015 had to offer, much less what the best of all that would be.

Yet here we are, at the end of the year, and a top 10 list is in order. So how about an Old Ain’t Dead top 10 for 2015? I present my favorites in no particular order.

I admit to being a little fast and loose with the 2015 part. Some of these things were made before 2015, but I saw them in 2015. Just go with it.

I cheated just a bit, too, because at the end I threw in a few extra mentions of things too good to ignore.

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.

David Duchovney and Gillian Anderson will be back as Mulder and Scully
David Duchovney and Gillian Anderson will be back as Mulder and Scully

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.
