To no one's surprise here, the enigmatic Dana Scully has been named in Stylist.co.uk's list of 25 Kick-Ass TV Heroines. Almost 20 years since she walked onto our screens and the woman is still bringing the heat. Let's hope FOX takes note:
Special agent/doctor Dana Scully was the tough-woman pin-up of 90s sci-fi TV. The sceptical counterpart to her partner, agent Fox Mulder, (a true believer in the paranormal) she confronts all manner of strange phenomena, from secret alien invasions and kidnappings to graphic experiments, and was hailed by The Huffington Post as 'one of the most iconic characters in the science-fiction genre.'
Head over to the article and give Scully the five star rating she deserves. And while there you might notice some familiar faces--including Carrie Mathison from Gordon and Gansa's Homeland. Scully is among some good company, though no one else will ever hold our hearts quite like she does.
Unless there's a "Milagro" situation happening, in which case, someone call 911...

The entertainment business in Berlin has been suffering from multiple industry follies such as; writer's block, ephemeral series, and an "extreme case of the Mondays where nothing seems to go right.” Luckily, the producers of long-time running American television shows such as Frank Spotnitz, producer/writer/director of The X-Files, as well as Neil Baer (Law & Order), have been tapped to attend the European TV Drama Series Lab 2012 in Berlin. Frank Spotnitz and other producers “will describe the importance of a showrunner in US productions.”
“The event, organised by the Potsdam-based Erich Pommer Institut in association with MediaXchange, is spilt across two workshops, taking place on April 24-29 and June 9-15.” The first workshop will focus more on narrative structures of series (which is where Mr. Spotnitz will be) while the second module is dedicated to exploring the US concept of the writers room.
