I’m assuming that the initial excitement is still quite high at the moment, between last night’s premiere of The X-Files revival and the anticipation of tonight’s episode. I’m also assuming that, after last night’s episode, there is a thirst to find out more about, well, everything: from how this six-episode event was put together to it’s relation to the Season 10 and 11 comics, how was it for the old cast and some of the old crew to get back together on such familiar yet somewhat muddied with time grounds, to any information about Chris Carter’s vision for the future of his shows. Today’s cheat sheet is the first of a couple dedicated to some great interviews that have been given over the last few months about the revival and the show. Hopefully it’ll help tide you over while you struggle to remain focused at work…
There was a lot of information flying around about the revival, but the essentials are in this piece (with more to come in upcoming Sahar’s Blog X-Files Cheat Sheets.)
One of the hard-core fans’ initial concerns was the placement of the Season 10 and 12 comics in the show’s canon, a question that was thankfully addressed early on.
While these older posts don’t have anything to do with the revival, they give a good glimpse into what went into getting the show back as well as the dynamics that fed the team that brought it to life during its original run.
As a writer, I always find it interesting to get the writing staff’s perspective on the show, and Vince Gilligan remains, to this day, a fan favorite.

Of course the actors who portrayed the show’s main characters have a unique perspective which always make for interesting discussion topics.
And ending this on a high note: there is hope for more X-Files episodes, guys… 🙂
