The trailer for the eleventh season of FOX’s The X-Files is out. The series, whose initial run ended in 2002, returned in 2016 with six new episodes that proved to be a hit. Speaking as an X-Phile, they were pretty good to me (except for whatever Joel McHale was doing)!
Mulder and Scully will return in January, and hopefully, answer some questions left over from last season. What happened to my love Gillian Anderson and that hot-ass Robbie Amell when the aliens shone their galactic flashlight on them at the end of the last one? Is David Duchovny really as bored as he seems to be and obviously just there for a check? The Cigarette-Smoking Man – is he alive? I mean the actor. He looks to be crumbling to dust. He shouldn’t smoke. Really dry things can catch fire.
Back in the day when Mulder left and Scully was saddled with the T-1000 and the chick from Mystic Pizza, I signed off. Upon re-signing for the last couple of episodes, I was thoroughly bewildered and wanted to know when Mulder and Scully BANGED AND HAD A KID. And they didn’t even explain all the black oil/colonization bullshit and why Annoying Andrea from The Walking Dead was running around.
Anyway, the mini-season they did worked and thing with the son was actually made intriguing. And Gillian Anderson looked amazing. I have a gay boner for Gillian Anderson. Did you see her in The Fall? Or, clutch my pearls, in Hannibal as Hannibal’s gal pal, the icy-elegant, cool-with-cannibalism psychiatrist Bedelia Du Maurier? She was magnificent. She IS magnificent. She could be talking about pro golf to me, and I’d still want to gaze lovingly at her aquiline nose and wonder why she doesn’t have all the awards, including a Car & Driver magazine award and a Clio.
