Hopefully this isn't deemed entirely inappropriate--the tangential relationship here obviously being Chris Carter. I didn't see the actual screening of the upcoming X-Files miniseries, but this trailer has my interest piqued. I worry a bit about the "loosely based" on Alex Jones and Glenn Beck, but I like political intrigue and conspiracy theory in story. That show, along with Millennium, could be even better today than they were back then, I think. Looking forward to it.

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.
