The X-Files Preview: “My Struggle II”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] The X-Files concludes its six-week run Monday night with a bookend to the premiere with “My Struggle II.” I’m so not ready for them to be done, so I’m going into this with the full expectation THERE WILL BE MORE EPISODES. Unfortunately, a screener was not made […]

The X-Files “Babylon”

  [Warning: Spoilers for “Babylon.”] When this episode went into production last summer, there was chatter that they might be setting up a spinoff. I really, really, genuinely hope that chatter ends where it began, because while Miller and Einstein were fine, and I liked Amell tremendously in this role, […]

The X-Files Preview: “Babylon”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] The next-to-last episode of The X-Files (which really needs to be announced for a renewal NOW-like) is tonally all over the place (and borderline stereotypically offensive to me as a Texan) but it eventually rambles to its point, stopping off for discussions about love, hate, and […]

Mulder and Scully Reunite for a Goodbye in The X-Files “Home Again”

[Warning: spoilers for the episode.] Moms have always been a significant presence on the The X-Files. Back in the OG days on, we got to know both Mulder’s mom, Teena, and Scully’s mom, Margaret. Teena died in 2000, and tonight, we said goodbye to Margaret (Sheila Larken), who was an important marker of both […]

The X-Files Preview: “Home Again”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] Tonight’s The X-Files is equal parts a monster of the week story and a trip down memory lane for the OG fans. If this one doesn’t net nominations for Gillian and David, the voters are dead inside. I’m guessing this would fall under a “limited series” now, […]

Chris Carter Talks Returning to The X-Files in 2016

Whether you’re picking up The X-Files again or for the very first time, you can appreciate the Herculean task series creator Chris Carter had in revisiting his characters and mythology 22 years after their story began. We had the chance to join a press call with Carter just before the premiere, […]

The X-Files Preview: Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] So, if you’re an OG fan, the title “Bad Blood” means something to you, and if you’re not, it might be the one episode your X-Files friends tried to show you to get you into the series. That season five gem, filmed during the show’s last […]

The X-Files Settles In But Doesn’t Settle: “My Struggle” and “Founder’s Mutation”

I’ve been saying for close to a year that Mulder and Scully are my people and that I was ready last March for these six episodes to air. After last night’s exposition-heavy episode painted the picture that Mulder and Scully have been apart but not necessarily estranged, tonight’s follow-up had […]

The X-Files Preview: “Founder’s Mutation”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] We’re going to watch this one together. I ran out of time to pre-screen tonight’s second part of the two-part premiere, and the last thing I want to do it rush it, so I’ll be watching live right along with you. I’m so, so glad they’re […]

The X-Files Preview: “My Struggle”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] I’m in a quandary how to preview this for y’all because I loved going in with really just about zero clue what to expect other than Mulder, Scully, Skinner, (David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi), check, check, check. I knew Joel McHale would be in there […]
