Welcome to X-Files News!
Halloween is over and the stores have prematurely packed their aisles with Christmas decorations. But before you start warding off the ghosts from stealing the holidays, we have to wrap up the 5th Annual XFN Pumpkin Carving Contest.
What started several years ago with a few entries has become a collection of dozens of submissions per year. Honestly, we just wanted an excuse to carve an X-Files pumpkin, and what a great excuse it has been. Frank Spotnitz, Annabeth Gish, Gillian Anderson, and finally Chris Carter have all been our pumpkin judges.
This year the god of the X-Files universe has spoken. Chris Carter looked over the entries to our contest and picked some of his favorites. This year's winner is:
Carved by Hannah, this pumpkin's creator will be getting a special shipment of X-Files goodies coming in the mail soon!
Our runners up are:
This pumpkin was carved by XFN's own Managing Editor Roileigh Ollson who receives special thanks for making Chris Carter laugh.
This FTF-inspired runner up was carved by Nicole.
This "Bad Blood" inspired pumpkin was from Kate.
And Nadine carved our last runner up.
Halloween may be over, but in less than a year we will be back with our 6th installment of the spookiest contest we run. Start thinking up designs for next year because you can never have too much X-Files in your life.
We’re beginning November but for the Scorpion universe, it was more of a Father’s Day time of year, of sorts. This week’s episode is filled with many an emotional reveal and a healthy dose of action.

Today's Fan-vid Friday pick is a blast from the past. Injection by Fox Estacado is still one of the most technically beautiful vids ever and time has done noting to lessen the emotions brought fourth by this jouney into Scully's psyche. Head on over to YouTube and thank FoxE for reuploading this classic vid.
This week, Team Scorpion must pass a mandated psych evaluation or face being disbanded after they’re accused of destroying a priceless work of art. Meanwhile, Ralph is reluctant to go to his school’s halloween party, so Paige asks the team to step in and help.

"I want to start off talking about one of my favorite subjects, which is Dana Scully.” This is how host Kevin Ott started the conversation with Chris Carter at the Writers Guild Foundation Genre Smash Event on Tuesday. Philes and writers filled the NerdMelt Showroom in Los Angeles to hear Chris' memories of The X-Files and thoughts on being successful in the television business.
The event started with a host Q&A and then fans were able to ask their own questions. If you followed along with us on Twitter you may have seen some of the highlights. We'll share what you missed if you weren't able to make it to the event!
From the very beginning, The X-Files went in different directions than most other TV shows. Chris described the trick of the show: "Mulder is always right. It's keeping it grounded in Scully, but you know Mulder's always right.”
