There were a lot of movies and television programs in 2018 – probably more than ever before (at least in terms of quantity/quality TV).
That said, Sturgeon’s Law (90% of everything is crap) still applies – and though I strenuously avoided much of what I thought would be crap TV/films, there were, unfortunately a few things that managed to get through my shields.
BBC America has gathered a veritable feast of movies and TV shows to gladden the hearts of most everyone – Movies That Sleigh; Sci-Fi Binge; Earth Binge; Darts Binge; A Few of Our Favorite Things; Doctor Who Christmas specials; and a Doctor Who Marathon.
Check out the trailer and a list of Binge for the Holidays programming below.
Stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, and series creator Chris Carter take a look at last season’s X-Files finale and tease the upcoming season in a featurette that has UFOs, a plague, a flash of romance and quite a bit more.
The X-Files’ new season will premiere during the 2017-18 season.
FOX has ordered a ten-episode X-Files event series to air during the 2017-18 seasons (not a surprise after 2016’s series’ ratings) – helmed by creator Chris Carter and bringing back David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as now iconic FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
Production is set to begin this summer.
Maybe this time we can get an arc that doesn’t take a lovely series of episodes and wrap them up with a pitiful finale (like last time – I can hope, right?).
One thing I’ve enjoyed about The X-Files (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) during this six-episode run is the way the show has touched on familiar themes by producing fresh variations on the kinds of episodes that won the show its following in the nineties.
This week’s episode, Home Again – written and directed by Glen Morgan – gives us a supernatural mystery while also giving us events that are anchored in reality.
