Return To Fall

Finally, FINALLY, we get to have Gillian Anderson’s glorious, glorious face back on our televisions. “The Fall” has consistently been one of the most well-written, tautly acted and just plain fascinating shows on television. As it enters its third season, I expect no less. Plus – and this may sound like sacrilege to some X-Philes – I think it’s an even better showcase of Gillian’s true skill set. (Especially considering what an utter disaster the new season of “The X-Files” was.)

If you haven’t watched the series, I so highly recommend you catch up (plus, it’s only 11 episodes total, between its first and second season – so not too grueling a time commitment). Also, did I mention Gillian’s DSI Stella Gibson is bisexual and totally game to bring an attractive female co-worker to her hotel room? Dammit, Reed Smith, get on that elevator, you idiot.

I have no idea whether Archie Panjabi will be back this season as said attractive female co-worker (American entertainment sites are absolute rubbish with UK TV show info/spoilers.) But it does appear from promo shots that the very clearly (probably) gay lady cop PC Hagstrom will be back this season – so that’s something. And, of course, there will be so much Gillian and her glorious, glorious face.

p.s. I will be recapping the show again for AfterEllen. If you want to catch up on the recaps from last season, or refresh your memory, you can find them here.
