The Lone Gunmen

Last July, it was revealed that The Lone Gunmen (played by Bruce Harwood,Tom Braidwood and Dean Haglund) would return for the new limited series of The X-Files. Of course, this was shocking news, consider that they were very much dead by the end of the show’s initial run back in 2002. Some speculated that series creator Chris Carter might bring them back in a similar fashion to what was done in the “Season 10” comic series, of which I have since clarified how that plot line really doesn’t work. Chris Carter seems to agree. Read on to find out what he said at the TCA Winter Press Tour about the return of these beloved characters and how they will come back (minor spoilers ahead)!

X-Files Revival

After being off the air for almost fourteen years, The X-Files will finally return to television with a two-night premiere starting January 24th at 10 PM EST/7 PM PST on Fox (Mondays at 8 PM after that). The hype has been enormous for this six-episode event, much more than for their second feature film back in 2008 (the advent of social media has changed things a bit since then).

Originally, we never though The X-Files would return to television, and fans were actually holding out hope for a third feature film. We still are. Well today, via THR, series creator Chris Carter gives us hope yet again, revealing that he had indeed originally wrote a script for a third film, should 20th Century Fox ever want one. Looks like our suspicions were true after all!

Lone_Gunmen

For fans of The X-Files, The Lone Gunmen were absolute fan favorites. Everyone loved them. They were funny, geeky, smart, paranoid, and always able to get Mulder and Scully out of a pickle. They debuted in the latter half of Season One, and were with the show until the very end. They even had a short-lived spinoff series of their own for a season, but it was unfortunately canceled. Soon after, in the final season of The X-Files, there story came to a close… or so we thought!

EW is reporting that actor Dean Haglund, “Langly” of The Lone Gunmen, has revealed via Twitter than they are indeed returning for the new series next year. Read on to find out more on the return of The Lone Gunmen in The X-Files revival series!

MILLENNIUM on Netflix

Are you one of the thousands of fans of Chris Carter’s Millennium TV series that wonder why the series is still not streaming on Netflix? After all, Carter’s The X-Files has already been streaming there for years now, allowing more and more people to discover the show who didn’t watch it when it aired. Not only that, but Millennium was the only other truly successful TV series Chris Carter created, gaining better ratings than many shows that stay on the air today. Let’s face it – Millennium was the original crime procedural series that paved the way for similar shows like CSI or Criminal Minds, and tackled much deeper and darker themes than any other shows that followed in the footsteps of Millennium. With so many other sub-par TV shows and movies currently streaming on Netflix, it makes all the sense in the world for a quality show like Millennium to enjoy a firm place there as well.

Boba Fett

It has been long-speculated that one of the first stand-alone Star Wars films (currently referred to as the Star Wars Anthology films) would be an origin story about Boba Fett – the bounty hunter that captured Han Solo in The Empire Strikes Back and delivered him to Jabba the Hutt in Return of the Jedi.

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim

Well, this is like only the coolest thing ever.

Any hardcore Star Wars fan that has ever had the opportunity to check out a Star Wars Celebration convention knows fully well that it is the single most greatest, most awesome, most incredibly spectacular event one could ever attend to indulge in all things Star Wars for 4 days straight. Anything and everything you can possibly think of is there – from collectable merchandise, Star Wars celebrities (many of whom you can meet, get autographs from and even take pictures with), exclusive footage from upcoming movies or TV series episodes, props from the films themselves, and even the chance to check out the latest and greatest in Star Wars gaming. It’s all there, and the best part is that you get to enjoy it with thousands of other fans like yourself!

But unfortunately, not everyone can be there. Life just gets in the way, for better or for worse. I was personally able to attend Star Wars Celebration III-V, but missed out on VI, and will once again not be able to witness what is surely to be the greatest one ever at Celebration Anaheim. But this time, we won’t have to miss out entirely. For the first time ever, Verizon has teamed up with StarWars.com to live stream “highlights and more than 30 hours of exclusive video content” from the event starting April 16th. Hit the jump for the official press release!
