The X-Files revival is coming. And when I say it's coming, I mean it's coming now. Not in an undefined future, or in a year, or even in six months. No, the thing we've all been waiting for is upon us, at last. It's both exciting, and nerve-wracking, and a little worrying.

“Por más rascacielos que tenga la ciudad, mientras la mujer sea juzgada y el hombre no, seguimos siendo una aldea.”, me dijo hace ya un tiempo una de esas amigas bellas que te manda la vida para enseñarte cosas. Me permito citarla porque no encuentro mejor manera de comenzar, y además, porque me dejó pensando.

Regret is a funny thing. It’s almost impossible to live without it, because we are not perfect. There’s almost always going to be something we wish we’d done another way. And yet there’s nothing quite as painful as the idea that you disappointed your parents, especially when they’re not around to reassure you otherwise. So, yes, I was already crying a couple of minutes into the episode when Scully wakes up to see her father sitting in front of her. Because it means something different to me, now that my own father is not around.
This is not a mythology episode. No plot advancement of any kind will be found here. (Apart from, like, character growth and one of the creepiest villains in the history of television.) And yet, to me, "Beyond the Sea" is one of the most important episodes of The X-Files ever, so forgive me if I ...

"Yo de niña aprendí que no había secretos, no había tabúes. Que los libros eran para leerlos, para disfrutar, para aprender. Que cuando leía algo y no le entendía podía preguntar y que era bueno saber de todo".

 This idea that a woman who says no really just means "try harder" is so very troubling to see portrayed as a sexy, romantic subplot. Any girl who has ever been harassed by a stranger, an ex, or even a trusted friend will tell you that the most terrifying thing in the world is a guy who hears the word "no" and thinks you actually mean "yes" and continues to pursue you. Similarly, someone who pines after you or makes you feel like an awful human being for not giving them a chance romantically is a total buzzkill. If the feelings aren't there or mutual, do you really want to have to convince someone to like you? To see your beloved finally throw their hands up in the air and shout "Ugh fine, you've worn me down. You win!" when you ask them to love you back? That doesn't exactly sound like a solid foundation for long-term relationship if you ask me.
You might know Lindsay MacDonald from her work at Tell-Tale TV, her pieces on TV Fanatic, or just that girl who we enjoy live-tweeting re-watches of The 100 with. Lindsay is an exceptional human being, super sweet, and passionate about television (and we got to have tacos with her at San Diego ...

Because, look, pinging someone’s cell phone is not cute. It’s not oh, look, he cares so much about me that he’s willing to invade my privacy just to figure out where I am, that’s so dreamy. NO. Pinging someone’s cell phone is wrong. Especially when that person has made it clear that she doesn’t want to talk to you, doesn’t want to see you and really, really doesn’t want to work for you.

And on that note, BUYING THE COMPANY where she works just so she ends up working for you anyway is just creepy, okay? I get that you probably thought it was romantic, and all that, but it wasn’t. It was borderline stalkerish. You’re a billionaire; don’t you have like advisers to tell you when you’re crossing the line? Because you should.

You weren’t even a bad boyfriend, Ray. You are not a bad person. You didn’t give off villain vibes from the start. You were introduced, we knew there was the possibility of a spinoff, and we wanted to like you. At least, I did. I tried very hard. I just couldn’t get over the Ray Palmerness of you.
We don't really love Arrow's Ray Palmer, but we're willing to give him a chance. Here's how he can get back in our good graces.

"Me duele París. También me duele Beirut, y Siria, y muchos otros lugares. Me duelen los muertos, la desesperación y el miedo. Me duele la ilusión de levantarse hoy y sentir que estamos más seguros que ayer. Me duele el odio y la falta de comprensión. Me duelen las mentiras y las medias verdades. Pero sobre todo, como diría Mafalda, me duele este mundo en que vivimos."

Lizzie kicked off a brand-new series a few weeks ago that she pitched to me titled If/Then. Have you ever watched a television show and thought: "I would love to read a book like this"? Or have you ever read a book and thought: "If only this could be a television show"?

Maddie approached me about doing a Throwback Thursday (#tbt, for all you Internet-savvy folks) piece where we highlight, bi-monthly, our writers. She noted that what makes our site unique and separates it from all of the other entertainment sites out there is the personal touch each of the ...

Hace rato ya que la literatura no necesita moralejas, o al menos, no moralejas explicitas. Cuando abrimos un libro no buscamos enseñanzas (ni siquiera los niños las buscan). Al contrario, buscamos un amigo, buscamos una historia viajar a nuevos mundos. Si aprendemos algo o no, eso no es problema del escritor. Él cumple con darnos las herramientas, con esconder una idea detrás de las palabras. Lo demás está en nuestras manos.

If you liked Breaking Bad ...
... then you might enjoy The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
What do you do if you're like me: just a regular nerd who is obsessed with many, many things? How do you balance your TV obsession with your incessant need to read any and all books that pass through your hands? How do you find time to be on top of both? How do you figure out what's worth your ...

We watch TV for many reasons.

Sometimes we do it for the plot – for the sense of being continually on the edge of our seats, waiting for the next twist. Other times, we watch for the actors. At times, we even do it because it’s there, and it’s convenient. Easy. But mostly, we do it for the connections. We watch because of how this person loves that one person or how the friendship between those two makes us feel.

We watch because we can’t help but see ourselves in the people that populate the small screen. We watch because we care.

And we don’t just care about the romance, though, admittedly, romance is a big part of what we care about. Just in like in real life, though, we love the family connections, we adore the friendships, and we live for the bromances.
Next to romance, bromance is the name of the game! Here are our favorite bromances on TV today.
