To Mitch’s Canadian THE X-FILES fans. The Investigation Discovery Channel is currently running the show every morning at 5:00 am. Mitch’s episodes are just starting to air so I thought I’d give the heads up on this. One Breath just passed so we’re into season two. I wrote the station asking if they plan on airing all nine seasons, right now all they plan on airing are the first five. I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the CanCon rules, but I’m hoping they’ve managed to get a hold of all nine. If any of you want to call or write them to ask them to get all nine, feel free.

I found an appearance Mitch did with Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) and Robert Patrick (John Doggett) in an X-FILES panel at the Calgary Expo on 28 April 2013. Mitch looked handsom as always. Enjoy.

Apologies this is so late. I had a doctor’s appointment early Tuesday and was feeling abysmal when I got home so I laid down for a while and ended up falling asleep. Hopefully it’ll never happen again…hardly.

What can be said about this episode except electric. Mitch and Judith Light were on fire. Yeah I know I keep enthusing about this but I’m so loving the dynamic they bring in their roles and I’m more than delighted with the quality of the writing Mitch is receiving. Other than on THE X-FILES, Mitch hasn’t gotten good writing on anything he’s been on since. I was so disappointed with his stint on SUPERNATURAL as Samuel Campbell I cannot say. I’ve just felt no one sees what Mitch is capable of due to his looks. What I’m loving about DALLAS is they don’t see him as a mustache twirling villain. They’re writing him with substance. We’re seeing so many layers with this and Mitch is killing it. Add to that Judith Light and their scenes are just dynamic. I guess I could add SONS OF ANARCHY to that list, but Kurt Sutter never really knew what he was doing with Earnest Darby, i feel. Anyway I was just riveted to my television the whole time Mitch and Judith were on. Loved this shot particularly.

WOW! Is all I can say about the performance from Judith Light as Harris’ mother Judith. I remember watching Judith on the soap opera One Life To Live as the hooker with a heart Karen Wolek, then on the show LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT as EADA/Judge Elizabeth Donnelly, ironically not in the two episodes Mitch appeared as DEA Special Agent Jack Hammond. I knew Judith was amazing, she’s won several Emmys for her work, but her hospital scenes with the unconscious Mitch were just stellar. There’s the air of a Greek tragedy with a hint of Odyssia and Alexander The Great Oedipal fixation with Mama Ryland. I’m hoping for more scenes between Mitch and Judith as time goes on. Unfortunately Judith is only signed for eight episodes. Please powers the be give us more before Judith leaves. The way is being left open for Judith to return, but come on, Harris needs his mama. All I can think of is THE X-FILES ninth season episode 4D where AD Skinner said to Lukesh, “Say hi to mama.” That’s what I’d love to do with Judith Ryland. So glad they didn’t pull out Harris’ coma long. That would have been excruciating, though Mitch does look good in hospital wear. Don’t like the respirator covering up that beautiful face though.

I should create an animation of this but I think I’ll just leave it to the still frame. No one takes a shot in the gut quite the way Mitch does. Starting in THE X-FILES season three with Piper Maru/Apocrypha to this episode, Mitch has had pretty bad luck in terms of facing a bullet. However, he’s recovered quickly. Here’s hoping for Harris.

 'Dallas' Harris Ryland played by Mitch Pileggi takes a shot to the gut from his ex-wife Ann (Brenda Strong) in the second season episode Sins of the Father.
