New X-Files Series

Last July (can't believe it's been that long!) I posted about The X-Files returning to TV for a new series. Back then the estimated return date of January seemed a long time away but now it's here and the new series will premiere in the US on 24th January on FOX. It's not in the UK just yet but we don't have to wait long because it's coming in February. The new series is 6 episodes long, so it's a mini series really but they may make more depending on how successful it is.

It's been over 13 years (14 in May) since The X-Files ended so it will be interesting to see the characters now and what they're doing with the show. As I mentioned in my original post (which you can view here: (http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/return-of-x-files.html) main characters Mulder (played by David Duchovny and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are returning as well as their boss Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) and his former boss, The Smoking Man (William B. Davis). In addition Agent Reyes (Annabeth Gish) is coming back but not Doggett (Robert Patrick) apparently.

The first episode is about Mulder and Scully taking on the case of an alien abductee. Episode 3 sounds good; it's called "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster"! wonder if we'll get an update on Mulder and Scully's son William who had some powers such as telekinesis (due to alien DNA?) and they gave him up for adoption at the end of the 9th series/season. I'm looking forward to the new series. :)



Update 27/1/16: I had posted a video about the return of the show but they've made it private for some reason! So here's the official trailer instead:





The X-Files will be shown in the UK on Channel 5 in February. They're currently showing The Essential Collection (20 episodes selected by Chris Carter who created the show) and they're repeating the first series on H2 (History 2).

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)


The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)


First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.



So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
