September 10th, 2009 9:55pm EDT
David Duchovny Sex Addict Californication
David Duchovny fears he can't talk openly about sex anymore after checking into rehab in 2008 for a carnal addiction. The X-Files star almost wrecked his marriage to actress Tea Leoni and faced public disgrace when he had to go public with his problem - and now he has decided not to talk about sex in interviews.

He says, "I don't want to be as flip as I was in the past. It's an area that's fraught with... It's not something I want to discuss so lightly."

And he urges fans and critics alike not to pass him off as a pervert because of his past problems.

'Jon & Kate Plus 8' Gets Porno Spoof

September 3rd, 2009 1:03pm EDT
Jon & Kate Plus 8
After the X-Files, Saved by the Bell, and Office porno spoofs, more were bound to arrive. But did anyone believe that the next title would be based off Jon & Kate Plus 8?

The Frisky is reporting that Devil's Film has made "Jon & Kate F--- 8," due for release in September. They've decided to even put a positive spin on the couple's recent divorce!

"In our movie they go to marriage counseling and come out with the suggestion that maybe they should go out there and bang other people," explains Devil’s Film sales manager Steve Volpini. "So they do and then it turns out that after they sow...

The Syfying Of Science Fiction Is Both Good & Bad

August 29th, 2009 2:00pm EDT
True Blood
Everyone seems really into vampires lately. Sexy vampires that have steamy vampire sex with each other all the time. If not vampires than it's people with psychic abilities (Psych) or people that travel through alternate dimensions. And that's just on television. These days a major blockbuster movie can't make a return without aliens (District 9), killer robots (Transformers) or wizards (Harry Potter). We live in a time where Quentin Tarantino is playing with alternate history (Inglourious Basterds) and weepy chick flicks are about time travel (The Time Traveler's Wife).

Some Of The Best 'Final Destination' Death Scenes

August 28th, 2009 9:45am EDT
The Final Destination
The original idea for Final Destination came from Jeffrey Reddick and it was originally intended for the "X-Files." This makes a certain kind of sense, since the idea of people cheating death and then death trying to get them back does feel like a case that can be wrapped up in a single hour long episode. There is a certain "The Twilight Zone" feel to the story as well, and this may be why the original film was considered a pretty interesting horror plot. There is no exact 'villain' in it, and it's more about sitting back and watch a group of pretty young people try not to get viciously kil...

Fox Bosses Upset About 'X-Files' Porn Parody

August 25th, 2009 9:04am EDT
Movie executives at Twentieth Century Fox have sent bosses of adult film studio New Sensations a cease and desist missive after learning they've completed filming of a sexy new X-Files porn spoof.

The X-Files: A Dark XXX Parody is now in post-production, but the steamy X-rated DVD, which features a stunning Gillian Anderson look-alike, will never be released if film chiefs get their way.

In the letter, a representative from Fox demands that New Sensations change the title of the film and cease using any X-Files trademarks.

Defiant porn bosses insist their intended product does no...

Best Film & TV About Alien Invasions

August 17th, 2009 2:39pm EDT
For centuries human beings have considered the world beyond Earth and wondered if there was life outside of what we know. There have been essays, books, movies, television, and plenty of conspiracy theories about the existence of aliens or extraterrestrial life.

In the past 50 years or so pop culture has been fascinated by this idea and what would happen if the alien nation found its way to our Earth. Would they be like Star Trek, some hostile and some friendly to humankind? Or would they be like Aliens and plan to tear the flesh off our bones?

Tony Shalhoub Talks About 'Monk's' Final Season

August 6th, 2009 10:11am EDT
In one of the smartest moves a television show can make, the upcoming eighth season of "Monk" will be its last, ending its popular run on a high note. In a Q&A with Golden Globe, Emmy, and SAG award winner Tony Shalhoub, the actor fielded questions about the final season and the impact "Monk" has had on both television history and culture.

Shalhoub stated, "We certainly don't want to go too long and have the quality start to wane and just limp to the finish line. We want to go out while we feel really that we're doing great work and delivering really strong episodes. We want to go ou...

Faux Documentaries Entertain Film & TV Audiences

August 5th, 2009 11:52am EDT
Documentary films, the traditional kind that the average person simply ignores, have long since given way to the popular faux documentary. These films, unlike their parent genre, have been and continue to be wildly successful. In fact, they are now so tightly woven into our culture that we truly forget what they are.

Christopher Guest's films Best in Show, For Your Consideration, and A Mighty Wind were all based on a fake, typically unseen camera crew following a group during or to an event. Sacha Baron Cohen also took this approach, with an obviously irreverent tone, with Da Ali G S...

'X-Files' Get XXX Rated

August 3rd, 2009 8:36am EDT
The truth is out there - and it's very saucy! X-Files fans who always dreamed of Agents Mulder and Scully getting sexy on the cult sci-fi show and in movie spin-offs are set for a real treat thanks to porn firm New Sensation.

The two crime solvers, played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson on TV and the big screen, will feature in new adult film The X-Files - A Dark XXX Parody.

New Sensations bosses are keeping the details and casting of the new film under lock and key - just like an X-Files mystery - but one source tells WENN the adult star cast as Dana Scully is the "spitting...

'Fringe' Panel At Comic-Con Gives Season Two Insight To Fans

July 28th, 2009 11:41am EDT
At last year's San Diego Comic-Con, science fiction fans were spoiled with previews into a new FOX show titled "Fringe." Headed by fan favorite J.J. Abrams and compared to "X-Files," the show starred Joshua Jackson, Anna Torv, and John Noble. After a very positive first season, the show is returning in the fall for its second, so this time the "Fringe" actors and writers were welcomed to Comic-Con as successful stars. I was lucky enough to check out the panel on Saturday in a room completely packed full with diehard fans.

Two Sci-Fi Shows We Can't Wait For This Fall: 'V' & 'FlashForward'

July 9th, 2009 10:08am EDT
Science fiction has taken somewhat of an upward turn in recent years, becoming attractive to more than the small cultish fan groups and growing to the universal mainstream.

With the success of shows like "Lost," "Fringe," "Heroes," "Battlestar Galactica" and "X-Files," sci-fi is steadily becoming worth investing in by the bigger networks.

Starting in the fall, ABC is releasing two new big sci-fi shows to the mainstream to see if we have a taste for it, and if you're any kind of sci-fi fan at all, these are the new shows you should be looking forward to.

One To Watch: Nicki Aycox

June 8th, 2009 10:55am EDT
Nicki Aycox
If you sift well enough past your Lindsay Lohans, Megan Foxes, etc. you can still find talented, younger (20s-30s) actresses worthy of your time. One of the best examples is Nicki Aycox.

Like most newcomers, Aycox began her career with sprinkling guest appearances bouncing from popular television shows including 3rd Rock From The Sun, Boy Meets World, and Ally McBeal. She stood out in the "Rush" episode of X-Files. While a small role, it was enough for us to remember her two years later as Syl on Dark Angel. Her resume is impressive; she also appeared on CSI, CSI: Miami, Ed, Provi...

May 18th, 2009 11:23am EDT
May sweeps is coming to an end after this week with dramatic TV season finales and cliffhangers. Last week shows like Lost ended their season with thrilling and unexpected moments that left audiences with more questions than answers. Season Finales are often the most memorable episodes during a TV series' run. They often include a mystery that is left unsolved until the next season. And most of the time they reveal something unexpected - like a surprise marriage proposal or a main character being killed off.

The 40 year old starred alongside David Duchovny in the cult 1990s show and two subsequent movies in 1998 and last year.

TV executives in the U.K. are reportedly keen to sign Anderson for a special one-off episode of hit show Doctor Who - playing a villain to do battle with the Time Lord in the ultimate sci-fi showdown.

Fanboy Fight: Joss Whedon Vs. J.J. Abrams - Who Is Your Favorite?

Joss Whedon & JJ Abrams
Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams have both played a significant role in fandom and overall media popularity. Their creative similarities are striking enough to call for a showdown, comparing their works and styles. Whedon and Abrams are both part of a new class of filmmakers and television creators: fanboys who are now able to reign over their own fandoms.

This battle royale has been divided into two rounds: television and casting. With more time and space films could have been conquered as well. This fight works best if you are familiar with their work. If you have not had the chance ...

"True Blood" doesn't return until sometime this summer but natural blonde Carrie Preston, who plays spunky redheaded waitress Arlene, revealed some tidbits about season two (more creatures - yeah!) and what other projects she's currently working on.

Starpulse: 'True Blood' is a little more graphic than I thought it was going to be.

'Alien Trespass' Pays Homage To 50s Sci-Fi; In Theaters April 3

January 25th, 2009 7:00pm EST
Alien Trespass
Alien Trespass is an exciting and entertaining homage to the great science-fiction movies of the 1950s, the post-war boom period when the country was filled with great hope and prosperity and, at the same time, lived under the threat of nuclear annihilation.

The story begins in 1957 in the star-filled skies above California's Mojave Desert. It is a special night for noted astronomer Ted Lewis (Eric McCormack), who is preparing a special dinner for his beautiful, adoring wife Lana (Jody Thompson) to celebrate their wedding anniversary. In another part of town, Tammy (Jenni Baird), a wai...

TV Year In Review: The Best, The Worst & The In Between

December 26th, 2008 7:31am EST
Breaking Bad
In a year that saw the writers strike bring forth more reality TV than we ever thought possible and reduce quality drama to a war of attrition, the boob tube still managed to deliver quality drama series at an impressive clip.


5. "BREAKING BAD" (AMC) - The aforementioned strike meant we only got seven episodes of former "X-Files" writer Vince Gilligan's masterful meth-strewn series, but after enduring its visceral fury, could we have really taken anymore?

Unlike another suburban drug dealing series, the torpid "Weeds", "Breaking Bad" offers a modern-d...

The Day the Earth Stood Still
The fall of 1951 gave world a number of things: the first oral contraceptive, the first episode of "I Love Lucy" and Bobby Thomson hit the "shot heard round the world" winning the National League pennant for the New York Giants. These are things that resonate with a countless amount of people, but mean nothing to the legions of the world's nerds. To science fiction geeks, September 1951 gave the world one thing: Robert Wise's The Day the Earth Stood Still.

In the film, the inhabitants of Earth face a dire choice. Throw down their weapons and live in peace, or have the entire planet des...

David Duchovny's female tennis coach has sparked rumors her friendship with the actor was the cause for his split from wife Tea Leoni.
