How The X-Files Revival Betrayed the Original Series
 2019-03-22 15:53:10 ET by Jack Anderson

September 10, 1993. The X-Files' pilot episode airs on the FOX network, marking the beginning of a cultural phenomenon like rarely seen before, culminating with the release of the eponymous film in the Summer of 1998.

Originally, series creator Chris Carter envisioned a five seasons series, that could then transform into a movie franchise, similar to the Star Trek franchise at the time. Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on the view from the fans, the series kept going on for two additional seasons. And then one more. And then one more.
But the series wasn't the same, suddenly replacing the rainy forest of British Columbia with the Californian desert. And even later replacing Mulder and Scully by new characters, John Doggett (Robert Patrick) and Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish). Still, the series had a massive 9-year run and ended up with a somehow satisfying series finale that marked a final chapter to the series.

After a failed attempt to revive the series on the big screen - a snowy movie dealing with pedophilia, released in the middle of the Summer, against The Dark Knight frenzy, the franchise was said to be dead. Until it wasn't!
Years had passed and with the 2010's, the world was ready for constant reboots and revivals, whether on the big or small screen.

Following a change at the head of FOX, The X-Files had again the privilege to be offered a new season (season 10), that started off with massive ratings. Because of the short season (6 episodes), the fans were left wanting more and got what they wanted, in the form of yet another season (season 11). While some fans were ecstatic to experience the return of their favorite characters Mulder and Scully, the ratings dropped significantly, to a point where the show seemed to have no future.

To make things worse, lead actress Gillian Anderson, announced in the middle of the promotional campaign that she would no longer play the character of FBI Special Agent Dana Scully, putting the last nail in the coffin.

But things may change soon, as Disney has formally completed the acquisition deal of the FOX studio this week, now owning The X-Files, which meant a return of the series could be a possibility in the near future.

Meanwhile, looking back, X-Phile Demijan Omeragic wrote an in-depth piece on the revival, titled "How The X-Files Revival Betrays The Original Series", which he released today. In it, Omeragic mentions considering the revival as "an inexcusable disaster that should never have happened the way it did."
While you may agree or disagree with him, that is not the point. The point is that he wrote a complete and profound essay about his favorite show. The size of the essay and the implemented efforts are only a reflection of the strong level of love he has for a series that many are considering to be different from the others, if not above.

In his massive 24,000 words paper, Omeragic dissects the initial break-up situation from Mulder and Scully, the rape of Dana Scully, her disownment from her son William, the immortal Cigarette-Smoking Man, as well as the future from The X-Files.

We encourage you to read it and welcome any feedback. Agree or disagree, tell us below!

Yes, Breaking Bad's Schraderbräu Beers Are Coming
 2019-03-21 15:41:48 ET by Jack Anderson

Admirers of the critically acclaimed TV series Breaking Bad were hoping for it, now it is a reality. Actor Dean Norris and Sony have teamed up to produce a real beer out of the Breaking Bad series. As you probably remember, Norris' character, Hank Schrader, was producing his own beer in his garage - the famous garage where Walter White would ultimately confront him and suggest him to... tread lightly.

Norris hopes that consumers will be able to drink his proud beer somewhere this Summer. "We took a lot of time and effort to create a beer (the research was quite enjoyable!) that is worthy of the show and its incredible fans," said the actor slash beer producer. "We think the result is fantastic. Or to put it another way, it's a beer that has been brewed to silky perfection."

The beers will be available to purchase online at [urlhttps://schraderbrau.com]schraderbrau.com[/url].

While everyone is focusing on the return of Game of Thrones, we have decided not to post the new trailer of the series, but to talk about a series you may not be familiar with.
