Welcome to X-Files News!
New York Comic Con has set up channels for live streaming this weekend's events all throughout the con. The X-Files panel will be live streaming today at 4PM EST. We have set up the streaming link for you directly from XFN so you don't have to move a muscle.
There are 2 channels for live streaming, however the events are not listed where they will be streaming. Channel #1 seems to be streaming all the Main Theater events which is where The X-Files panel will be located. When it gets closer to the panel, we should be able to have more accurate information about which channel they will use and will notify you. We have set up both channels for you here just in case.
If you are watching it live and would like to join fellow X-Philes online, check out our special Skype Files session.
We are just about 30 minutes til the Paley Center X-Files event starts. The Paley Center will be having a live stream you can watch here. You can also join us on a special session of Skype Files happening right now.
This is a very exciting weekend for X-Philes and we are going to report live with all the excitement.
This morning Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny did a very successful Reddit AMA. For those unaware, Reddit is basically a giant message board. Smaller subreddits focus on specific topics; for instance, the IAmA subreddit hosts AMAs (Ask Me Anything threads) with people in unique circumstances. Then every post in every subreddit is upvoted or downvoted by users, and the most upvoted posts make it to the front page.
David and Gillian's AMA is still sitting at the top of the front page. Fans asked the pair about everything from their future career plans to random moments on The X-Files. If you want to read it all, here is the thread. If you don't want to dig through the entire thing though, you can also go to David's and Gillian's user pages to see all of their responses. Then click context to see what they responded to.
Either way, hit the jump for some of the best answers from this morning's AMA.
The weekend is almost here and we are all getting too excited for what it's bringing us. New York Comic Con started today and the Paley Center X-Files Event is coming up on Saturday, and we have our staff covering these events live from the Big Apple. However, if you are not one of the lucky ones and cannot make it to NYC this weekend, but still want to hang out with fellow Philes and talk about our favorite show, you are not alone.
It was with that in mind that we have prepared special Skype Files sessions for this weekend. We will host 2 special sessions, one during the panel at the Paley Center, and one during the X-Files panel at NYCC.
The panel at the Paley Center will take place this Saturday at 6:30PM EST. The Paley Center will have a live stream online for those of you who wish to follow along. We will start a Skype Files session at 5:30PM EST. That will give us plenty of time to get ready for the streaming. We have selected a couple of episodes for this special session. We will be watching 'Unruhe' and 'Trevor'. We will stop the episodes during the panel and continue after it is over.
The X-Files panel at NYCC will take place this Sunday at 4PM EST. NYCC will have a live stream of the panel for those of you who wish to follow along. We will start a Skype Files session at 3PM EST, that's plenty of time to watch an episode and get ready. We have selected a couple of episodes for this special session. We will be watching 'Jose Chung's From Outer Space' and 'The Pine Bluff Variant'. We will stop the episodes during the panel and continue after it is over.
To be able to join this special session, make sure you have downloaded Skype to your computer or mobile device and have created an account (They're free!) and add Tricia Silva (DrTrish197) and/or Jeremy Schoff (jerbsinator) to your contact list and we'll do the rest.
You know how at XFN we love to keep it fun, especially when it comes to hanging out at Twitter and watching our favorite TV show. So when the peeps at Showratings TV approached us to host an X-Files Binge... we couldn't say no!
How does this work? Well is pretty easy, and the folks from SRTV have made a few pointers that shouldn't be all that unfamiliar to you all!
WHAT IS A BINGE?
You've joined us on Tweet-a-thons before, you know how to stay hours on end on twitter before. This time we'll be watching X-Files episodes while sharing information, comments, insights, etc from these nine great episodes of the show.
We're happy to join ShowRatings.TV on their sixth TV Binges event. The binge will be hosted by special guest MCs from XFN: Avi Quijada (@AviQuijada), Ky Johnson (@KyinHI), Patricia Silva (@Field_Trish), Roi Ollson (@Boston3346), Tiffany Devol (@TDevol), and of course the main X-Files News handle (@XFilesNews).
Meanwhile, SRTV staff MCs will be Blaire Knight-Graves (@BlaireLovesTV) and Ricky Diaz (@RickyLovesTV) and their support staff will be Shana Lieberman (@evilapprentice) and Kyle Trembley (@KyleLovesTV).
October’s featured binge, #XFilesBinge was picked to prepare for the most wonderful holiday of the year... Halloween! Our theme is of course the scariest episodes. Mark your calendars for October 27th and don’t forget to bring your most huggable pillows!
