Okay, we seem to have some episode titles (Some may be changed before the episodes air)

Episode 1- My Struggle
Episode 2- Home Again
Episode 3- Mulder and Scully meet the Were-Monster
Episode 4- Babylon
Episode 5- Founders Mutation
Episode 6- ?

If I'm being completely honest, none of these sound like X-Files episodes :lol:
Well, maybe Babylon.

My Struggle and Home Again are confirmed titles, as is Founder's Mutation, and it's just been updated that Episode 6 is titled My Struggle II

That's cool; I wonder if any of it will look familiar? My daughter and I scoped out Riverview on our visit to Vancouver a few months ago, wondering if they would film there (in fact, we probably ran into some of the crew, though they denied it).

Annabeth Gish posted this image. The camera is named "Squishy Lens"
https://instagram.com/p/6qsjP-hXhc/?taken-by=annabeth_gish

Here is a demo clip of a "Squishy Lens"
http://www.clairmont.com/videos/squishy_lens/squishy_lens_demo.html

What do you guys think? It looks rather mystical. Dreamlike. If Reyes is being filmed with this camera, she will look like an angel! Or it could be a memory, flashback, I have no idea.

Yeah, I learned back in the 90s that you don't even let Canadians (especially border patrol) know of your law enforcement connections. They assume you're a gun nut and psycho! lol

That's wild about the 'Squishy Lens', LS. It does make me wonder if they'll do something dream-like (that could be a way of bringing back some of the 'dead' characters as well).

Is my vision off, or is Revival Scully blonde? Am I alone in the feeling that I can't believe someone chose to make Scully blonde for the revival? I would like to personally start a 12 step group for this. Is nothing sacred? :|

She'll be blonde for a specific reason. But don't worry, it seems to be more red in the leaked pics from episodes 3,4 and 5. Maybe they will making it redder in editing.

From your lips to God's ears Little Starbuck!

I guess all we can do now is wait. The real question that the XFU inhabitants need to brace themselves for - just in case - is "Is it possible, to live in a world where Scully is a blonde?" To me, the universe has constants - physical laws that govern the way all other eventualities unfold. Light Speed is 299,792,458 m/s, sea level air pressure is 101.325 kPa, Spock has pointy ears, and Scully's hair is red. It is by these truths of perception, that all other facets of reality factor from....I'm just saying.

Then maybe Scully's blonde hair is an indication of a twist in reality?

But in all honesty, I think that they've given Gillian a weird wig that looks a different colour on every single photo, because there's that one that I posted from Annabeth's Instagram that makes Scully look blonde, then here's a another photo from the same scene:
11111.jpg

It's red!
It must be something to do with camera filters, however in episode 1 she definitely looks blonde. Non-blonde Scully is not Scully at all, but then again, maybe that's the point.

Someone who visited the set during the final filming last night said that -while Scully was being medical doctory to Mulder- she kissed him on the lips, however this was in rehearsal and they didn't do it again after having a talk with CC. DAMN YOU CC AND YOUR AVERSION TO MSR! However it says a lot about the state of MSR if Gillian felt that kissing Mulder would be something Scully would do in that moment.

I've got a pretty reliable info (I, like Mulder, do not reveal my sources :) ) that will warm the hearts of all shippers: apparently, M and S will have resumed their romantic relationship before/during Episode 6. There won't be a kiss in the aforementioned scene, but because Mulder's illness is contagious and therefore they decided that Scully should be professional, not romantic about it, not because CC didn't want MSR. In addition, that scene, though the last one to be shot, will not be the ending scene of the show.

Reliability of information-around 85-90%.

Just heard that yesterday; it seems the Philes are overall pretty upset about it, and worried that we're going to be inundated with spoilers now. Personally, I'm hopeful the buzz will help the show.

DD interview (the full interview is half an hour, but this is the relevant part about TXF).

Frankly speaking, the only episode from the reboot I am really looking forward to is Home Again-judging by previous spoilers, this is the only part of it that truly has potential to recapture the spirit of old MotW episodes from seasons 1-7. It won't be screened in advance, so I am home and dry :)

Thanks for the interview, it's really funny how real life DD has same mannerisms as Mulder, but totally different voice. Or maybe he simply had a bad cold :)

CC has revealed in an interview that Mulder and Scully have in fact split up in the revival

"We do it in an interesting way," The X-Files creator Chris Carter tells The Hollywood Reporter of his decision to break up the popular couple. "We play with that relationship [in the event series]. We put some of the tension back in that was relieved by them being together. It added to the storytelling opportunities. It’s something that I came up with; I had been thinking about it. There was always talk of [breaking them up] if we did another movie."

"Put some tension back"? It's resolved! There is no UST anymore, STOP TRYING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN! There better be a twist to this. Sometimes I wonder if CC has ever actually watched The X-Files or listened to a word the fandom has said. Oooooooo he makes me so mad :x :x :x

http://www.lifezette.com/popzette/why-x ... wont-exit/

More spoilers here (not just about MSR) from DD and Mitch Pileggi.

It is official now-I will not be watching the reboot at all. They confirmed what it would all be about-UST (which was artificially created in the first place) and relationship issues resolving and boring, boring, boring baby William stuff AGAIN, with MotWs taking a back burner. In short-seasons 8 and 9 (read: soap opera) all over again instead of fresh ideas. Extremely disappointing. I will watch Season 3 or 4 again instead and enjoy the REAL X-Files. I really don't see the point in tarnishing beautiful X-Files memories with this kind of stuff. I already made that mistake with IWTB. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

Another thing-if CC thinks this is going to work 20 years later with new audiences, he's got another thing coming. The key for a successful revival is to capture new audiences-that means fresh, innovative plots and ideas that are in sync with the zeitgeist. If he thinks teenagers and young adults now are interested in resolving issues from 15 years ago (which they could not possibly know about because they were age 2-7 when these episodes had been originally aired or not born at all), bickering of a 50-somethings couple and miraculous revivals of characters that died at least three times before, he is seriously delusional. A lot of people that watched the original show are simply not interested anymore (logical, because it began 22 years ago and ended 13 years ago plus a lot of fans lost interest after ending of Season 7) and new audiences will in all probability neither understand nor care for this. I predict a biiiiig tank, just like IWTB tanked.

Nothing really new in this article about reboots, but it does suggest that the odds are good for TXF reboot to be at least somewhat successful, as franchises with a small but rabid fanbase do tend to get at least a solid portion of the crowded TV market.
