KEEP YOUR DARTH VADER.

And your Darth Maul, Darth Sideous, Darth Billoriellycus and Darth Revan.

The Cigarette Smoking Man is a complex, nuanced, and alternately sympathetic and frightening villain.  He’s played by an outstanding actor, William B. Davis.  And he’s a better suited nemesis for a paranoid modern America than those pun-monikered space-zen anger-samurai from a galaxy far, far away.  All those guys (save for the apparently mute Maul) always sound like a fascist Deepak Chopra when they talk.  (In fairness, though, so does CSM, kinda.)

Behold — the new poster for the the return of “The X Files” in January.  (I guess I was wrong in predicting we would see only a younger CSM in flashback?)

Fun with fandom: go up to someone who is obsessing over “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and say, with as straight a face as possible, “Man, you are REALLY into ‘Star Trek,’ aren’t you?”  Watch them implode.
