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: ( 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).

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.

Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

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…
