Advance Review: The X-Files - Doppelgängers, Dancing, and the Return of The Lone Gunmen

The X-FilesIn this week's episode, written and directed by series creator, Chris Carter, "Babylon," when terrorists bomb an art gallery for showing offensive artwork, Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are visited by younger agents on the case (Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose), who bare a resemblance to themselves. The two are looking for a way to speak to the one comatose bomber who survived, to find out who is behind the attack and stop any further attacks. Mulder and Scully use their own different beliefs to try to find answers. Some old friends and foes also show up.

The X-Files - Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-monster - 10.03 - Post Mortem

The X-FilesI've already posted a spoiler-free review of the episode, but now that it's aired I wanted to include some more specific thoughts before moving onto the full recap below, which includes quotes.

The X-Files
delivers a classic in this week’s comedic episode. Whether you're a diehard fan of The X-Files or not, episode three, "Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-monster," should delight you. It's one of the trademark quirky, funny episodes. Even better, if you are a fan, you'll love it for all the references/injokes to previous moments on the show.

Darin Morgan did an excellent job with the script. Scully says it perfectly in the episode, “Oh yeah, this is how I like my Mulder.” The episode truly feels like it could fit somewhere into the old series (minus the technology jokes, which were so funny), as the show hits its stride again, making the episode an instant classic.

The episode focuses on a man-sized lizard, who after being bit by a man, turns into a human. The were-lizard is brilliantly played by guest star Rhys Darby.

Kumail Nanjiani, who guest stars as Pasha, is also very funny in the episode, especially when he is acting alongside David Duchovny.

Advance Review: The X-Files Delivers a Classic Dose of Quirky Comedy

The X-FilesThis Monday The X-Files takes a comedic turn as “Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-monster.” The duo is called in to investigate what may be a serial killer, an animal attack, or something else altogether when witnesses claim they saw a monster.

The episode, written brilliantly by Darin Morgan, is a step back into the quirky and silly episodes of the original. The series was always able to poke fun of itself in the best ways. The episode is not only a throwback to the original series as it is filled with references and injokes, but an excellent story in its own right.

The X-Files - Founder's Mutation - Post Mortem

The X-FilesFollowing the review is a very detailed recap of the episode, including quotes.

The X-Fies returns with a monster-of-the-week for it's second episode of the season. This episode, which is about eugenics and psychokinesis, fits into the classically creepy episodes that the show is known for. That being said, it does bring in some connections with the mythology, which I appreciated, such as talking about alien-human hybrids, and of course the discussion of William.

There were a lot of good moments in the episode. One that sticks out is Skinner helping the agents out, telling them that it will take awhile to close out the case, basically giving them more time before the DOD will put a stop to their investigation.

The X-Files - My Struggle - 10.01 - Post Mortem

The X-FilesI've already posted a spoiler-free review of the episode, but now that it's aired I wanted to include some more specific thoughts before moving onto the full recap below, which includes quotes.

Even after seeing the premiere episode a couple times by this point, I still loved the episode, and there is a lot to love about it. The main thing is that "My Struggle" really makes you stop and think. I love how it completely twists a lot of the mythology on its ear. I'm still thinking about it. I'm not entirely sure what to even think completely yet, however. It's hard to reconcile that I have followed nine years' worth of a story that may turn out to be untrue, and that aliens were never even part of the conspiracy. Yet at the same time, that's what the plot has always done, twist and turn. We still don't even really know if the new information Mulder has found is true, but even if it is, who's to say that a lot of the characters besides just Mulder and Scully weren't also in the dark about what truly happened? They could have been lied to as well. It just adds a lot to think about, which is what this show is great at doing.

Advance Review: The X-Files - The Truth is Still Out There

The X-Files: My StruggleI was lucky enough to be able to see the episode back when it premiered at NYCC in October. These were my original reactions.

Sunday night FOX kicks off the premiere of the highly-anticipated return of The X-Files six episode event immediately following the NFC Championship Game. Stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson return as FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully to solve cases of the unexplained, in the episode "My Struggle."

Being such a huge fan back when the original series aired, I was excited to see what the new series had in store, yet a bit trepidatious about it living up to the original. I was not disappointed.

Advance Review: Shadowhunters - The Descent into Hell is Easy

ShadowhuntersAfter watching the second episode of Shadowhunters, I have higher hopes for the show. I was impressed; it drew me right in. The quality of the show, especially the acting, fared much better than in the pilot. The actors seemed to be more in tune with their characters and made me want to keep watching.

I especially enjoyed watching Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia) and Simon (Alberto Rosende). If you weren't a Simon/Isabelle shipper before, you should be by now.

Advance Review: Shadowhunters - All the Legends are True

ShadowhuntersTuesday ABC Family (soon to be Freeform) premieres it's new series Shadowhunters, based on the bestselling book series, The Mortal Instruments, by Cassandra Clare. The series takes place in modern day New York and follows Clary Fray, played by Katherine McNamara, who discovers that she is not who she thought was. There is a world hidden beyond our own that she has been made to forget. She comes from a family of Shadowhunters, half-human half-angel hybrid demon hunters. When her mother (Maxim Roy) is kidnapped, she, along with her best friend Simon (Alberto Rosende), are pulled into this new world. With the help of fellow Shadowhunters Jace (Dominic Sherwood), Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia), and Alec (Matthew Daddario), they must not only try to save her mother and recover her memories, but also stop demons and other supernatural creatures from destroying everything.

As a fan of the book series, and knowing that the story was previously released as a movie, I wasn't sure what to expect. Certain aspects for the series had been changed from the start - for example, the character of Luke (Isaiah Mustafa) is a detective in television show rather than a book store owner, which will I'm sure add a different spin. There are also some new characters coming to the series as well.

Advance Review: The Magicians

The MagiciansOn Monday, January 25th, Syfy will premiere the first two episodes of it's new series, The Magicians, based on the New York Times best-selling book series by Lev Grossman.

He gets more than he bargained for when he leaves behind his friends to discover that magic is not only real, but so may be the world he and his friends have been reading about since childhood, and their own world may be in danger.

The first episode pulls you in quickly as Quentin, who's always felt out of place, discovers Brakebills and realizes that his life is about to change. He must prove that he has what it takes to become a magician and navigate this new world, which isn't all fun and games; magic proves that it can have dire consequences.
