PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I am not going to lie and say that I liked the previous season or mini-series (which is honestly a better title since it was only six episodes long). I’m willing to program the DVR and give it a chance but I don’t have the highest of hopes and think that the series best moments are behind them. They need to really up the game if they want to contend with all of the Science Fiction, Horror and Super-hero shows that fill our channels in today’s entertainment world. Back in the day they were the rulers of the roost and fans are expecting a whole lot more when it comes down to it today. Let’s see what happens. As I mentioned already I will be setting the DVR but not giving it too long a chance if I don’t enjoy it right out of the gate. What about you? Let me know in the comments below.
Back in 2016, the world of Geekdom saw the return of Agents Mulder and Scully in “The X-Files” Season 10. There were only six episodes to the season and they left us with a bit of a cliffhanger. Now, the time has come to reveal the trailer for the 2018 returning show for its eleventh season. Check out the trailer that was unveiled at this years NY Comic Con. I’ll follow it with some light premise and cast before closing it up with editorial.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve already stated that I am not sure about catching this one right away but the DVR allows for easy binge watching. Have any of you readers sunk your teeth into the original novel at all? I know there is a comic book hitting the stands as well and perhaps I will add that to our narratives as well in the comic book review area. Tell me below if you will be watching. I’d like to hear.
So I’m going to admit to you all that I am not really on point about this one. I never read “American Gods” even though its by the great Neil Gaiman but I did know about the upcoming series thanks to the fine folks at Dark Horse who we see every year at Toy Fair. It seemed that not only would they be publishing a limited series comic book but also a line of products related to the upcoming live action drama which will air on the Starz network. Check out the first trailer, or what I believe to be the first trailer 😀

It would seem that the truth is still out there and if you still want to believe that there is a larger force at hand in many of the worlds brewings and doings then isn’t it awesome that Agents Mulder and Scully are back at the task on The X-Files. Believe it or not my friends, the exciting Fox television series is returning to broadcast television for a six-part mini-series. Below is the poster, a vague premise and the cast so check it out and then I’ll return to discuss.
The Premise: The X-Files miniseries is an upcoming continuation of the American science fiction horror drama television series The X-Files, created by Chris Carter, which originally aired for nine seasons from 1993 to 2002 on Fox. On March 24, 2015, Fox announced the series would return for a six-episode miniseries. (okay so not really the most helpful of show premise descriptions but oh well).
