WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THEM

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - The X- Files -

EPISODE 1 : “MY STRUG­GLE ”

WRIT­TEN AND DI­RECTED BY: CHRIS CARTER Com­mu­nity star Joel Mchale guest stars in this open­ing story. he’s a talk show host named ted O’Malley who sends Mul­der and Scully off to in­ter­view an alien ab­duc­tion vic­tim, Sveta, played by an­net Ma­hen­dru – she’s been sub­jected to all sorts of probes and prods, which brings back dodgy mem­o­ries for Scully. all of which means we’re on fa­mil­iar ground here – the show is launch­ing again with a “mythol­ogy” episode. hope­fully that won’t scare off younger gen­er­a­tions who weren’t around when the first se­ries aired…

Mean­while, an­der­son says of this episode: “it’s set­ting ground­work, so it’s got a par­tic­u­lar role to play. it does ex­actly what it needs to do.”

EPISODE 2 : “HOME AGAIN ”

Writ­ten by: Glen MOR­GAN, JAMES WONG two of the show’s lead­ing lights re­turn with an episode that, con­trary to ini­tial spec­u­la­tion, isn’t ac­tu­ally a ref­er­ence to the in­fa­mously cen­sor-both­er­ing sea­son four episode, “home”. We sus­pect – and hope – that the “home” in ques­tion here is the Fbi build­ing. Pos­si­bly a lit­tle base­ment at the bot­tom of it. cross your fin­gers.

EPISODE 3 : “MUL­DER AND SCULLY MEET THE WEREMONSTER”

Writ­ten by: DARIN MOR­GAN the writer re­spon­si­ble for some of the show’s most en­dur­ingly quirky episodes (“clyde bruck­man’s Fi­nal re­pose”, “Jose chung’s From Outer Space”) re­turns with a story that sounds as though it’s go­ing to raise a few smiles. but what kind of were- mon­ster is it? the show’s al­ready done were­wolves ( sea­son one’s “Shapes”), so could it be a were- bear? a were- cat? a were- sloth? a were- sloth would be amaz­ing. if a bit lan­guid.

EPISODES 4 - 6

all we know about these as we write this is that carter has penned two them, one be­ing the fi­nale. episode four ap­par­ently fea­tures Scully’s faith, which sounds like carter ter­ri­tory. Other than this… we can only wait and see!

Were­wolf an­tics in 1994’ s “Shapes”.
