Hello Everyone,

I often feel I overload this board with X-Files Lexicon exclusives, but here I go again!

We're proud to present our exclusive interview with Alex Gansa, the co-writer with Howard Gordon during the first season of the X-Files. He discusses his new series with Howard, "Homeland" and there's a passing comment about Chip Johannessen in there.

You can find it here.

That was an interesting interview, Matt. I was intrigued by how little television Mr Gansa watched when he was young, especially in comparison with other XF writers/producers.

It's a shame he said he only watched "some" Millennium. If he had watched all of it I'm sure he would have more positive things to say.

Homeland has been a very interesting show, and I am looking forward to season 2. Having said that, I hope it maintains the momentum to keep my interest. I found myself losing some during season 1, not knowing where the show was heading. It picked up and at this point the viewers are left hanging, which is a good thing to keep them interested. We will see.

Thanks Matt, enjoyed the read.

      From a Metro news article:-
      Were not suggesting you might get a little excited by this or anything but the first actual trailer for the X-Files reboot has been released.
      Yes, after months of teasing us with pictures, plot hints etc, makers Fox have finally given fans the chance to see Mulder and Scully in action once again after this teaser found its way online.
      Admittedly, you dont get to see a whole lot of them in action since the clip is a mere 16 seconds long offering just the briefest glimpse of Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.
      But it whips up a creepy atmosphere nonetheless thanks to the presence of the military, some kind of bizarre injection procedure and Mulders I Want To Believe poster being cast to the ground in that time.
      No, we have no idea what it all means either. But its enough to whet our appetites.
      Entertainment Weekly recently revealed the first episode of the new mini-series would be entitled Mr Struggle, and would be directed by series creator Chris Carter.
      Meanwhile cast newcomers will include Joel McHale of Community fame who will be playing Tad OMalley described as the anchor of a popular conservative Internet news network who becomes an unlikely ally for Mulder.
      According to the trailer the series will premiere in the US in January 2016 although theres no word yet on when well get it here.

      Looking very nice indeed!

      Hi Everyone,
      We are really pleased to present our new exclusive interview with actor Jerry Hardin, who played Deep Throat.
      There was a time, due to his advance years, that I doubted we'd ever secure an interview, which is explained in the piece, but it was a thrill to hear that voice over the phone, and kind of surreal for me. I realize this won't cover much new ground for first generation fans, I had some limited time for the interview, and couldn't get to some of the topics I wanted to bring up, but it was still thrilling to speak to him.

      Hi Everyone,
      A certain staffer from XFL interviewed Howard Gordon for Den of Geek, about The X-Files revival, 24, Homeland, and a new series that sounds pretty promising.
      Let's hope the previous definition of an exclusive interview was cleared up with XFL's previous interview with Theirry J. Couturier. But personally, I do remain your humble servant, and I appreciate all of the past support from here. Maybe even Mark Hayden is floating around somehow. Enjoy.

      X-Files Lexicon did a brief interview with Mike Joffe, from the La-La Land label about The X-Files and Millennium CD titles, and what could happen with Mark Snow's new music for the revival.
      Anyway, Mike has been a great friend to XFL, as well as TIWWA, so it was nice to touch base.

      Interview with Chris Carter...
    • By The Old Man
      Chris has been interviewed by the Vancouver Sun.

      (Very sad to learn why he was in Vancouver two weeks before, it seems Millennium's First Assistant Director had passed away, Jack Hardy who had made an active and admirable career... I can't find any information relating to his passing, so haven't updated his profile in the Episode Guide yet.)


      Series creator talks about Vancouver and B.C.s role in making the show a hit

      Interview By Francois Marchand, Vancouver Sun April 28, 2015 10:38 AM

      The truth is simple: Chris Carter loves Vancouver. The creator of hit sci-fi show The X-Files is coming back to the B.C. coast this week to be the special guest at a private Vancouver International Film Festival Industry event being held on National Canadian Film Day on April 29.

      Carter arguably opened the provinces doors to American television and film artists when he decided to shoot The X-Files in Vancouver and B.C. for its first five seasons, before taking the show back to California.

      The recently announced reboot of the series, consisting of six new episodes featuring most of the original cast and crew (including David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles as FBI agents Mulder and Scully), will be shot in Vancouver later this year. It will air on Fox in 2016.

      To celebrate National Canadian Film Day, VIFF will also be screening six Canadian films at the Vancity Theatre: Kris Elgstrands Songs She Wrote About People She Knows and Andrew Huculiaks Violent (both from B.C.), as well as critically acclaimed films by Xavier Dolan (Mommy), Robert Cohen (Being Canadian), Mars Horodyski (Bens At Home) and Kyle Thomas (The Valley Below). Tickets for the six-film event can be purchased at viff.org.

      The Vancouver Sun chatted with Carter via phone about his forthcoming VIFF Industry appearance, the return of The X-Files to B.C., and how truly Canadian the hit sci-fi series really is.

      I really love this new TV series that is on BBC America called Intruders which Amazon did offer the first episode for free for a limited time for download and they had the first two episodes on YouTube for a limited time. I have been buying episodes off Amazon since then and I find it an interesting slow burn supernatural series as John Simm plays a retired cop turned writer who investigates the disappearance and odd behavior of his wife (Mira Sorvino). His trip takes him to Seattle as he gets sucked into a culture where old souls are reborn over and over again in the bodies of other people over the centuries. One of the old souls called Marcus awakens in the body of a nine year old girl Madison which has to be the creepiest little girl in recent memory and she steals the show from every else including John Simms, Moira Sorvino, and James Frain who is one of the shepherds part of the ancient Qui Reverti (the group of old souls) and he is out to kill some of the old souls including Marcus (and some guy who discovered a way to detect the old souls with a machine). Glen Morgan has a hand in writing every episode and his brother Darin and even Kristen Cloke are involved with the writing duties of the show and the season finale is on tonight. I have watched through the first episodes with the next two to watch and the finale to download tomorrow. I hope there is a second season and I might have to check out the novel this show is based on. This show is building a mythology to it and I think fans of Glen Morgan and Millennium should check this one out.

      Anyone see the pilot episode for remake of the Danish crime series Those Who Kill develooed by Glen Morgan? It starts march 3rd after Bates Motel. A&E has it available online and OnDemand right now. I found myself impressed and this show is as good as Millennium. James Morrison is in it as the boss of the main detective (she has her own scars from the past). She brings in a college professor to consult on a case which turns out to involve more than one body. Recommended for fans of Millennium. It sets up the characters and provides the right mood for a dark series like this
