Reopening the X-Files

Reopening the X-Files

As many of you know the X-Files is coming back.

I really enjoyed the original series of the X-Files there was something at the time fresh and different about the series and of course the relationship between Mulder and Scully really made a difference.

The X-Files is an American science fiction horror drama television series created by Chris Carter. The program originally aired from September 10, 1993, to May 19, 2002, on Fox, spanning nine seasons and 202 episodes. The series revolves around FBI special agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) investigating X-Files: marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena.

I am currently re-watching the original as it is on Amazon Prime, but you can get the DVD boxed set for a reasonable price too.

Back in the 1990s I started developed a skirmish set of rules, entitled FEDS, the inspiration for which was the X-Files. The idea of FBI Swat teams fighting down bad guys and monsters seemed like a good idea for lots of fun games.

Looking forward to the new series, though not sure where I will be able to watch it.

Dad’s Army hits the big screen

Dad's Army hits the big screen

So the first trailer for the reboot of Dad’s Army is out.

It hits the big screens in 2016. It has Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring, Michael Gambon as Prviate Godfrey, Bill Nighy as Sergeant Wilson, Tom Courtenay as Lance-Corporal Jack Jones, Bill Paterson as Private Fraser and Daniel Mays as Private Joe Walker. And Catherine Zeta-Jones will set pulses racing in her role as visiting journalist Rose Winters

Any reboot is always a challenge, however I am quite looking forward to watching this when it comes out. The characters are not quite the same as the long running TV series. Bill Nighy though makes the role of Sergeant Wilson his own.

Though Tom Courtenay makes a cracking Corporal Jones.
