Entertainment Weekly (January 22-29, 1999) "Forecast '99: Big Events" by Jeff Jensen. Has a blurb on HARSH REALM: Fox golden boy CHRIS CARTER slouches toward the millennium with his new sci-fi pulper. PROJECT - Fox's Harsh Realm (that's the working title), the latest from The X-Files and Millennium creator Chris Carter (planned for this fall). THE DETAILS- It's based on a sci-fi comic book; gumshoe Dexter Green must track down track down a kid lost in a computer-created "pocket universe" - an idea that came to creator James Hudnall in a dream. "I woke up and started thinking," he recalls, "and pulled all these random thoughts into a story." AT STAKE - Realm needs to be bigger than Millennium if Carter is to kick off his $25- 30 million Fox pact with a bang. CASTING CONSPIRACY? - Buzz casts Nicholas Lea (Alex Krycek on The X-Files) as Green (though Fox says Lea is one of many candidates). And with rumors of Krycek's demise, Lea might be available. As always with Carter, the truth is out there.

Wrapped In Plastic #38 has a review of "The Beginning" with some kind words about Nick: "The Beginning" is an okay episode, though we've begun to realize that the really good mythology episodes always seem to end up having Krycek in them...The X-Files could use a few good Nicholas Lea appearances to propel the mythology back into the high gear it enjoyed in episodes such as "Piper Maru"/"Apocrypha" and "Patient X"/"The Red and the Black."
