7 February 2018

I will be taking a break from doing updates for the rest of this month because, you know, the Olympics begin tomorrow! I've been a fan of the Olympics ever since I was a kid, and the Games take on a priority to me when they are on, pretty much everything goes on hold. That said, if there's any breaking news regarding Robert Patrick (or John Doggett) that happens during February, I will post it here. Enjoy the Olympics! Citius! Altius! Fortius!

I threw this new Doggett/Scully collage together tonight! I wanted to get at least one DSR collage in for February since after today I just won't have a lot of time to play around in Photoshop because of the Olympics! Enjoy!

"... Life is a journey for everybody and everybody has their challenges and everybody gets (their share of) ups and downs in life -- that is life. Sometimes you have to go through great struggles to get to the other side and then you hit the highest high and you got to remember that." [ read more ]

The article below states that "Doggett was never a fan favorite," well... I have to say that the author of this article had good intentions in stating this, and defends Doggett against the naysayers and haters, but there were tons of Doggett fans during the initial run of seasons 8 and 9 of The X-Files. Sure, us Doggett fans were in the minority, but we existed, he was a "fan favorite" to us (and for a lot of us the only reason we even continued watching the series after the seventh season), and therefore the use of the word "never" in that statement is completely false. Aside from that, this is a well-written article, a love lettre of sorts, to our favorite X-Files character, John Doggett.

In defense of Doggett, the unsung hero The X-Files should have reenlisted ... Doggett wasn’t just not Mulder. In many respects, he was kind of the anti-Mulder: an ex-Marine and former New York City detective, hard-boiled and no-nonsense. Whereas Mulder was idiosyncratic and individualistic, his far-out theories putting him constantly at odds with the FBI, Doggett mostly played by the book and well with others. The two characters did share some commonalities: They both possessed a certain deadpan wit (you can’t exist on a show like The X-Files, with its nonstop cavalcade of outlandish happenings, and not drop the occasional wisecrack) and traumatic backstories, Doggett haunted by the death of a son instead of the disappearance of a sister. But in worldview, and in general attitude toward the paranormal, they couldn’t be much more different. If Mulder was the true believer whose open-mindedness often cracked the case, Doggett was a skeptic, a champion of logic in the face of weekly, wild impossibility.

With the confirmation that Robert Patrick will not be returning as John Doggett in season 11 of "The X-Files," and even though the chances of a twelfth season seem very, very slim, I am still going to put together graphics for you to use to show FOX, Disney, Carter, Robert, and anyone else involved in getting "The X-Files" to season 12 that there are fans out there that will watch (and embrace) a season without Scully, and that we would really like to see John Doggett come back and be Mulder's new FBI partner. Just click on the banner above and you will find preliminary graphics that you can use to support this cause. If you are on Twitter, please use the hashtags #DoggettXF12 and #DoggettMulderXF12 whenever you post about "The X-Files," or about Doggett or Mulder. Let's do what we can to show The Powers That Be that there are fans out there that will watch without Scully.

I made a new Doggett/Scully collage! It's not much, I was going for "simple," and came up with this, titled: "I should have gone with John..."

Robert Patrick as Cabe Gallo in Scorpion 413 "The Bunker Games"

11 January 2018

We finally have confirmation on whether or not Robert Patrick will reprise his role as John Doggett in season 11 of "The X-Files." No, we will not see Doggett in the new season, and with the way things are going (viewership ratings, direction the series is going, etc.) I highly doubt we'll see a twelfth season either. On one hand, this is really sad because Doggett was such an important part of TXF and in Scully's life, but on the other hand I'm relieved that Doggett won't get dragged down by association with what TXF has become. I'm just so glad that "Scorpion" still has Robert as our beloved Cabe Gallo! So glad that we get more of Cabe than Doggett. The article linked below was shared by Robert Patrick on Twitter today, that's confirmation from the man himself:

‘The X-Files’ wanted Robert Patrick back as John Doggett for Season 11, but ‘scheduling issue’ got in the way - 10 January 2018 - “I know we tried to get Robert Patrick a couple times,” confirmed “The X-Files” executive producer Glen Morgan at the Television Critics Association winter press tour about Fox’s current revival of the classic sci-fi series. However, Patrick’s day job on CBS’s “Scorpion” made him unavailable to shoot any new episodes for “The X-Files” Season 11. “We’ve tried, but it was just a scheduling issue,” Morgan said.

In other X-Files related news, Gillian Anderson has also confirmed that she will be doing no more X-Files. I'm not surprised at this since it seems Gillian hasn't really been completely "there" in her performances of Scully since 2008's "I Want To Believe," and especially in the 2016 resuscitation attemt of TXF, which IMO has carried over into the first two episodes of the current season eleven. If "The X-Files" does a twelfth season, I am absolutely looking forward to what TXF series can be without Scully. Unfortunately the ratings for this eleventh season are just plummeting, sadly "The X-Files" is going down in flames, which are most decidedly not flames of glory.

Gillian Anderson Confirms She's Exiting Fox's 'The X-Files,' Starz's 'American Gods' - 10 January 2018 - The actress told reporters Wednesday at a set visit as part of TCA that she's done with both dramas.

Gillian Anderson is finished with The X-Files, the actress confirmed Wednesday during a panel organized as part of the Television Critics Association's winter press tour. Anderson said that she originally intended to sign on for the six-episode revival in 2017. She also confirmed that she's walking away from Starz drama American Gods after showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green quit the series. 

"It's time for me to hang up Scully's hat. It just is," Anderson told reporters, ruling out any potential return in the future. "I'm finished, and that's the end of that." [ read more ]

"I honestly believe Doggett loves Scully,
but he doesn't want to impose himself on her."
