The X Files are back!

So The X Files are officially back! On January 24th, 2016, FOX will be premiering a 6 episode event, which is being called “The X Files Revival”.

What we know for sure is that Mulder and Scully are back and they will be working paranormal cases together. Skinner and CSM will be there and probably Dogget, Reyes and The Lone Gunmen, too.

In the trailer we see Mulder coming out of, what it looks like his IWTB home, which he does not appear to be sharing with Scully anymore. We also see him in his old office, with the pencils on the ceiling and the “I Want To Believe” poster on the floor.

 

In the meantime, x philes around the world are re watching the complete series, starting exactly 201 days before the premiere, 1 episode per day. Right now were about mid-5th season. So if you want to join the re watch fun, you can use the following hashtags ‪#‎TheXFilesRevival

The X Files Comics

So, as part of the 20th Anniversary, 2013 gave us a new comic book series!!

 

There has been previous X Files Comics, like de original series from the 90s and the episode adaptations. Then the TV Show ended and with the second movie (IWTB) came a new series of comics in 2008, which I think were supposed to be set between de 4th and 5th season , but I am not sure about this. That series was pretty cool, because it really had the scent of the TV Show’s episodes, with story lines about demonic possession, government conspiracies, Chinese mysticism and underground creatures. After that, came 30 days of Night, which was like a really cool long episode about vampires in Alaska.

But not of that compares to The X Files Season 10 comic book series. I think it is because it really feels like season 10 of the show, which most of us didn’t think it would ever happen and it really starts right where “I want to Believe” ended. Besides it is been written by a true X Files fan (Joe Harris), so he knows what we like. Chris Carter is also been a part as an executive producer, so the story line remains faithful to the mythology of the TV Show. Michael Wash is in charge of the inside drawings but the covers are by Carlos Valenzuela who, I think, is doing an impressive job.

 

The series was released on June 19th, on the 15th anniversary of “Fight the Future”. Until today it has only been released the “Believers” arc, which was composed by 5 issues and ended on October.

 

“Believers” shows the life of Mulder and Scully, after the movie I Want to Believe, as the Blake’s. Mulder is writing his memoirs, as Scully suggested, and Scully is practicing medicine. Skinner is now a Deputy Director for the FBI and comes to Mulder and Scully to tell them about a security breach and the FBI’s network and that information about William, Mulder and Scully, had been compromised. Soon after that Scully is kidnapped by a group hybrids called de Acolytes.

 

Meanwhile, Aggent Doggett investigates a threat to an oil pipeline, that turns out to be filled with magnetite. Doggett then, goes missing.

 

Mulder encounters the Lone Gunmen, at Arlington National Cemetery, where they are supposed to be buried. They fake their death and the FBI helped them hide, in exchange for their work. They are now helping Mulder to find Scully, who is being used by the Acolytes to find William.

 

Reyes, on the other hand, goes to check on William and his adoptive parents, the Van De Kamp’s, but she can’t find either of them, just more Acolytes, who attacked her, and now she is missing too.

 

At Arlington National Cemetery, Mulder is contacted by CSM, who warns him about the Acolytes and also gives him a stiletto pick.

 

Mulder eventually finds Scully, but the Acolytes tell them that they will keep looking for William.

 

The ending of this series is a huge reminiscent of Fight the Future, with the space ship and the board review.

 

And finally, the whole series “Believers” ends with Mulder and Scully becoming agents with the FBI again!!!

 

 

Now there is nothing left, but to wait for the next series, “Hosts”, which comes out mid November, I think.

20 Years of X Files

So here is the deal, as my bff told me yesterday, there is an X Files mood in the air these days, and I think that it is because this is the year of the X Files 20th Anniversary, which we celebrated with the international fandom, on September 10th. But it hasn’t quite faded off  just yet. So, this ambient kind of inspired me to do the thing I love the most, after reading, which is writing.

 

I haven’t done my phile writing in such a long time and I need to rise to the occasion. So, its time for the 20th Anniversary recap.

 

This 2013 has been a year of great Comic Cons, new releases, as The X Files Season 10 and The X Files Volume Two, phile campaigns and lots of phile fun.

 

Who would have thought, 20 years ago, when the pilot first aired, that this was going to be the outcome of it all? That a new species would be created and a new terminology would be invented just for us, we are not geeks, we are not nerds, we are PHILES!!! And damn proud of it!!!

 

There are probably thousands of fan communities now a days, every time a new book is released or a movie comes out, a new fandom is automatically born. Tributes, nephilim, submissives, you name it. But you know what, we are the most hardworking and dedicated fandom EVER.  Not only we haven’t stop in 20 years, but also, we started from scratch, in every single one of our countries we had to start from scratch, we didn’t just happen to walk in, into a fandom. We have all created this community, all over the world and we work for it, every day.

 

Chris Carter created this amazing phenomenon 20 years ago, David and Gillian brought it to life for 9 years and WE turned it into a legend!

 

 

We are most satisfied with the involvement that we have had in the international community for this past three years. It has been even more rewarding than the whole 5 years that we tried to pursuit in our own country. So we are convinced now that this is how it’s meant to be.
