PITCH 1×01 Debriefing: Padres in the Outfield

The Fall TV season is back (and so are we!), and first up at bat here at TYLL is the new baseball-themed drama Pitch on FOX. This series’ curveball? It centers around a promising young pitcher — who happens to be a woman. The pressure reaches a fever pitch, leaving everyone wondering if Ginny Baker is nothing but a flash in a pan. Can the rookie series hit a home run? (And could I use any more baseball analogies in this article so far?)

BONES 11×21 Stills: “The Jewel in the Crown”

We’ve had the promo for as long as we’d had the press release, but now it’s time to see the stills!

FOX has released the Bones 11×21 stills for penultimate episode of the season, “The Jewel in the Crown.” As the promo and the press release hinted at, the team investigates a murder over a diamond when a body was found with one lodged in its jaw. French inspector Rosseau (played by Sebastian Roche) approaches the team with an accusation against the Marquis De Chaussin (played by Gilles Marini) — the victim’s husband, who lives in Virginia. Elsewhere, Booth discovers he suffers a temporary eye illness (hence, those glasses in the promo), and Hodgins thinks he’s being followed by a ghost. Plus, Daisy’s back!

THE X-FILES 10X06 Season Finale Debriefing: You reap what you sow

Courtesy Fox

Ain’t no party like an apocalypse party, y’all.

Spoiler alert: It turns out that colonization threat that made Mulder go on the lam days after his son was born 15 years ago was real, only planet Earth was off by a few years. (Darn calendar mix-ups!)

The stuff’s about to hit the fan — or the UFO — and it’s up to Scully to save the world, as per usual, thanks to a little help from some friends and foes from her past.

Villains, viruses and vehicles, oh my!

THE X-FILES 10×05 Debriefing: All you need is love — and narcotics

If you ever wished you could see Fox Mulder high on magic mushrooms, boy, does The X-Files have the episode for you!

This week, the agents meet their younger doppelgangers, while trying to solve a case that is as nuanced as Mulder’s dance moves. (In other words, not.) It might all just be an excuse to get David Duchovny shirtless, but that’s about where the subtlety ends.

Very belated THE X-FILES 10×04 Debriefing: Still spooky after all these years

Sorry for the radio silence the last two weeks, folks. Will be back to usual posting schedule as of this week, hopefully.

The X-Files always did know how to pull at our heartstrings back in the day. Mulder and Scully chasing monsters together often served to contextualize the tragedy of the human condition, whether it was at the victims’ expense or their own.

This week, our heroes suffer yet another loss, but in true X-Files-y fashion, they soldier on to crack yet another case — and learn a little about themselves in the process. There’s a lot of reminiscing going on, and perhaps even a little glance at the future, too.

THE X-FILES 10×01 Debriefing: Same old conspiracy song and dance

THE X-FILES:  L-R:  Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully and David Duchovny as Fox Mulder.  The next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES debuts with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), following the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The thrilling, six-episode event series, helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter and starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI Agents FOX MULDER and DANA SCULLY, marks the momentous return of the Emmy Award- and Golden Globe-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.  ©2015 Fox Broadcasting Co.

*Insert “The Truth Is Still Out There” pun here*

Fourteen years after the original series went off the air, and eight years after its last movie was released, it feels downright strange to be reviewing a brand-new episode of The X-Files. Like we’ve hit some sort of collective rewind button, sharing this trip down memory lane all together.

Yet somehow, the most quintessentially ‘90s show feels topical, since it seems like maybe all those government conspiracies Fox Mulder raved about to anyone who’d listen (and many who wouldn’t) over the last few decades aren’t so fantastical after all. Mulder and Scully are back, a little older and wiser and battle-worn, but don’t let that fool you — these two are in the thick of it, and for that, we should all be grateful.

Grab your tinfoil hats and alien-grade icepicks, because it’s about to be a bumpy ride.

Can you believe it, X-Philes?

Where once another chapter in Mulder and Scully’s saga seemed but a pipe dream, now it’s gearing up to hit our screens in less than two weeks.

Last night, the folks at FOX hosted a party for The X-Files Season 10 premiere, and have graciously given fans a special peek into the festivities!

Since we’re pumped about the revival here at TYLL, we thought we’d take a glance at the snapshots to get us primed for “My Struggle,” season 10’s debut airing January 24th on FOX at 10pm ET/7pm PT.

We can’t wait for the new season to begin, but until then, we’ll bask in the fact that it’s 2016 and we’re still celebrating one of TV’s most iconic shows!

SCREAM QUEENS 1×09 Debriefing: “The Weakest Link”

The ninth episode of Scream Queens was all about ghosts and ghost stories. Fabled ghost stories were told as an attempt to keep the Kappas’ minds off their own “real-life” ghost story. One member of the Red Devil squad met his maker this week. And we, as an audience, were left to wonder about his mysterious other half. With just five chapters left in this saga, the answers have begun trickling out a bit more rapidly. Same with the deaths.

Marla has been passionately and disturbingly obsessed with television since she was in diapers. She lives and breathes all things TV, and attempts to watch anything and everything. Unfortunately there are just not enough hours in the day. She definitely has her top favorite shows, the identities of which will become painfully obvious if anyone stumbles upon her social media pages.

SLEEPY HOLLOW Season 3 Fall Finale: Did that just happen?

Courtesy Fox

Hey, Sleepyheads! Are you still reeling from that doozy of a fall finale? I know I sure am.

The first half of season three has been a wild ride. Pandora’s box ain’t got nothin’ on our Witnesses — but it seems like, at least for now, she might have gotten the upper hand. We’ve had courting and combat and crossovers, but nothing could have prepared us for Abbie’s fate in “Novus Ordo Seclorum.”

I don’t know about you guys, but I am definitely in denial that what happened to our rookie FBI agent actually transpired. Or at least, that it transpired in the way the writers would have us believe. Maybe that’s what happens when your show is about a Revolutionary soldier who played dead for over two hundred years only to reemerge in 2013 to stave off the apocalypse, and a sheriff’s deputy who ended up in Purgatory and has traveled back in time in order to save herself and her comrades. You start to laugh off Death, because just as in The X-Files before it, nobody stays truly dead for too long in this universe.

So maybe that’s the false sense of security under which I have taken “Novus”, because I find it highly improbable that Agent Abbie Mills, Witness and ass-kicker extraordinaire, went out not in battle with the afterlife, but thanks to a nemesis we’ve only begun to unravel.

For the first time ever, the show is celebrating Thanksgiving, the underrated holiday that is often overlooked because it’s in the middle of two bigger ones.

So what better case to celebrate that than a conspiracy-fueled episode that debates freedom and security?  Thursday’s case was pretty interesting, as the team ran into some opposition that resulted in extra-carefulness on their part. As for the festive part of the celebrations, it was as lighthearted and fun as you’d expect it to be: after all, this team is like a dysfunctional family, minus the awkwardness between barely-seen family members. (Speaking of which: this marks Parker’s and Michael Vincent’s returns to our TVs!)
