Peter Donat, who played Agent Fox Mulder’s father on “The X-Files” and acted in two Francis Ford Coppola films, died Monday at his home in Point Reyes, Calif. He was 90. His wife, Maria, told the New York Times the cause was complications of diabetes. Donat, perhaps most recognizable for his recurring “X-Files” role, was […]

What was the first genre show to resonate with you? 1. HBO owes a “thank you” to The Incredible Hulk. Because when you’re a skinny, nerdy 10-year-old, you wish you could transform into a painted green Lou Ferrigno and beat the living s–t out of anyone who makes you angry.
Through TV history, starting with I Love Lucy in the ‘50s, shows have had to figure out how to address actresses’ real-life pregnancies on screen. Scandal had to answer this question a second time this season when star Kerry Washington announced she was expecting another child.

Warning: This recap for the “ My Struggle II” episode of The X-Files contains spoilers. Season 10 of The X-Files ended the way it began: with an absurdly talky, absurdly plotted, and just plain absurd conspiracy-minded hour written by series creator Chris Carter that tried to resuscitate the walking corpse that is the franchise’s larger mythology. Having established in the premiere that aliens weren’t the ones seeking to invade Earth and replace humanity — a theory that Fox Mulder, and the show itself, had spent the previous nine seasons advancing — “My Struggle II” saw the long-teased depopulation scheme finally being put into effect, with a shadowy cabal of men (and not of the little green variety) behind it all.
The truth can finally be told: after a 14-year absence, The X-Files returns to the airwaves on Jan. 24 for a six-episode 10th season starring your favorite paranormal investigators, Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). Additionally, many of the new episodes will be standalone stories, which, frankly, tended to be the more enjoyable X-Files outings anyway, free from all that alien invasion nonsense involving black oil and super soldiers. Want to believe The X-Files can be great again?

We put the 'Aquarius' star to the test and ask him to name past roles from one line of dialogue. (Just don't ask him to name the other Wilson brother.)
"Aquarius" star David Duchovny answers a few Twitter questions about his new character, the return of "The X-Files," and if he'll come to Michigan to be someone's homecoming date.
