Welcome to X-Files News!
Gillian Anderson is making the rounds today in promotion of her new show Crisis which premieres on NBC at 10pm this Sunday!
The reigning Queen of Television is juggling not one, not two, but three television series with her roles in Hannibal and The Fall also in full swing. She even took some time this morning to talk about a third X-Files feature film and left the journalists of Morning Joe in full on fangirl mode by the end of her segment.
If you need a Gillian fix or are just trying to catch up with the flurry of activity as Crisis promotion roars on during this Happy Pi day, check out the links below!

Up until now, I’ve been enjoying the bi-weekly releases for The X-Files: Conspiracy without a pressing need to get the story to end. It kept building and building and I was fine with that because I know that some kind of resolution was coming soon. And that moment might soon be approaching.
In the latest edition of this crossover, The Lone Gunmen cross ways with The Crow, and while I’m not a gigantic fan of the lore, it is part of my filmmaking education from back in the day.
Starting my read of this issue made me realize how nothing is gratuitous in this collection; the story comes full circle with one of the scenes that we enjoyed in the first issue and suddenly a lot of things now make more complete sense. As I said, and trying to be the least explicit as I can, resolution is near, or so we are led to believe.
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
Gillian Anderson stopped by HuffPost Live today for a short interview to promote the upcoming premiere of NBC's Crisis. Check out what Meg Fitch, Stella Gibson, and Dr. Du Maurier will be up to in the future. And why HuffPo needs a new couch.
Crisis airs this Sunday, March 16th at 10pm ET on NBC.
This month’s new issue of The X-Files: Season 10 breaks away from the usual narrative style that we’ve enjoyed in the past nine releases. This time around, Joe Harris delivers a look into the life of the enigmatic CGB Spender and some of his pivotal moments in the universe of The X-Files.
“More Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man” presents us with vignettes that are quite illustrative of how this man became the dark and mysterious nemesis to Fox Mulder’s quest. His partnership with William Mulder, the tumultuous relationships with the women in his life, and the nature of the operations that he carried out for the US government and beyond are exposed for our delight, giving us a glimpse into how interesting it would be to have a prequel that delves into the early days of the Syndicate.
Is not a naive narrative, it’s mature and dark at times but well justified.
This tenth issue is a milestone into building the overall story that Harris intends to tell throughout The X-Files: Season 10, cementing what I’m sure will be a useful reference to the many episodes to come in this saga. Refreshing and challenging, “More Musings…” is not only great because of the almost “Auteur Cinema” storytelling, but also because of the breathtaking style that menton3 brought to this edition.
What I appreciate about the risks that this team is taking is that it’s subjecting us to different ways to tell the story. It won’t always be the MOTW format; true to the X-Files fashion, the arc of the conspiracies that made this franchise famous will grow with time, feeding us with important pieces of a master puzzle.
In this case, while it might prove hard for some to get every ounce of information on a simple first read, it seems appropriate to transport us via the conceptual art that illustrated this issue to the mental state that has often been part of the DNA of the character of the Smoking Man. Achieving this, in this media, is a challenge that they’re taking seriously every week, and you should see this collection as a road that keeps on growing and extending before us.
I thoroughly enjoyed the way that American and International history and politics come to be part of the story, as a way to give us reference to the elements that have fed this conspiracy for years, since Chris Carter imagined it. In a time when we have so much turmoil in the world, it is notable how historic moments have reflected our nature as a society. It’s not a simple and done deal; this reality has tendrils that extend and tangle making it palpable for the curious, and quite educational for the younger minds.

According to Variety:
Amazon Studios has settled on four series orders among the 10 pilots the company announced last month were under consideration, according to sources close to the deals.
A rep for Amazon Studios declined comment.
Getting the greenlight will be “Bosch,” a cop drama based on Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch series, written by Eric Overmyer and Connelly. Pilot follows title character, played by Titus Welliver (“Argo,” “The Good Wife”) as he pursues the killer of a 13-year-old boy while standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected serial killer in cold blood. Cast includes: Annie Wersching, Amy Price-Francis and Jamie Hector. Henrik Bastin of Fabrik Entertainment (“The Killing”) produced and Jim McKay directed the pilot.
Written and directed by Chris Carter (“The X-Files”), “The After” is a drama that follows eight strangers thrown together by mysterious forces and who must help each other survive in a violent world that defies explanation.
