Ok, there's a dancing Mulder 'n Scully on the main page under the Geek Culture coat-of-arms and yet, to date, there's no X-Files movie sequel thread on this board.

So, who else is as psyched as I am? Huh? Yeah! Stomp your feet! Make some noise!

ha ha!

I'm not so psyched about the new movie since I thought the last movie was less than good.

That said, I may scream like a little girl seeing Scully again. [Razz]

It's weird because I don't think I've ever had a real conversation with anybody about the merits or failures of the first movie.

I had to take it with a grain of salt, knowing that they produced the first one with the intention of drawing more than just the series fan-base. I don't think they could have made a financially successful film counting on only X-Philes to see the movie. Make it too hard core with all the baggage of the previous, what, six seasons and half the audience would just be confused.

It looks like this time around there's a similar strategy by leaving out the aliens and making it a monster flick. And if they can capture some of the creepiness and tension that the better stand-alone episodes had, then I think they will have a good movie on their hands.

Apparently X-Files 2 is slated to go up against The Dark Knight opening weekend, and in my humble opinion, they don't stand a chance. But I'm sure there will be plenty of people who won't be able to see Batman because it will be sold-out and will see XF2 as an alternative.

I've seen what is supposed to be a leaked trailer. Billy Connolly is in it, and I have to say that guy cracks me up no matter what role he's in... Funny, though, the Mulder and Scully ingredient is not nearly played up as I expected it to be. I look forward to some new, official material to be released. For now, however, they seem to be keeping things under a pretty tight lid. We don't even know the other characters' names.

I loved that show, but now I watch the episodes and think I can't believe how bad the production quality is, compared to today.

Hey! Doctor Who rocks... always has... aside from lack of real funding, the stories were good... as for the current Series, great all round.

When the most recent Dr. Who series began (I think it's referred to Dr. Who 2005?) I thought the molten plastic monster in the floor of the department store was downright hilarious looking. But I watched the next two episodes and the production value was quite impressive. The newest season should be starting soon, although I don't think even the British know exactly when. It was supposed to be as early as this weekend, but I haven't heard any announcements yet.

Doctor Who has to be my all time favorite show. I was indoctrinated with Tom Baker and was hooked on it. I love the new seasons as they capture the essence of the old show with good stories while producing big budget effects. Personally I hope they do something about the regeneration problem. After all he's on his tenth life. Only three more to go unless they figure out a loophole.

They could do another Time Crash wibbly-wobbly timey-whimey type thing - bring Peter Davison (or Eccleston or Tennant or a to-be-announced Doctor) back and have him regenerate, that might add a few more lives! [Wink]

Or reverse the tachyon flow through the shield generators and generate an inverse pulse in the deflector array. (or have I got the wrong TV series?)

Actually, I'm hoping we learn where girl timelords come from, after 13 blokey incarnations, we get 13 girlie ones.

The local public television station used to place two or maybe three hours worth of Doctor Who at a time on Saturday afternoons. Tom Baker was the Doctor at the time. To a little kid that character, along with the Daleks, the Cybermen, and Davros made for a very interesting afternoon. Although I can't say I understood much of what was going on.
