WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THEM
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!
