‘The X-Files’ 11×10 Review: So Long, and Thanks for All the Pain?

I wondered, for a long time, how this day would feel. The X-Files has meant so much to me for so long that I always figured the closing of this chapter in my life, the absolute certainty that this is…

‘The X-Files’ 11×09 Review: This Shit Is Almost Over

Chris Carter, or maybe The X-Files in general, are like that one night stand you really, really enjoyed while it was happening, but have regretted every second since. This is a terrible comparison to make for me, especially, because I…

‘The X-Files’ 11×08 Review: (Un) Familiar Snoozefest

So often it feels like there are only two kinds of episodes of TV: the really, really good ones, or the terrible ones. Sadly, that is not the case, because both those options make for easier reviews than the one…

‘The X-Files’ 11×07 Review: Who The Hell is Scott?

Don’t you feel like we’re on a train to Shitsville and no matter what we do, no matter how comfortable the ride is, no matter how many tasty snacks they give us along the way, or how much they string…

The X-Files 11×06 Review: Please Stop Trying to Make Skinner Happen

Like fetch, it’s never, ever going to happen. Ever. I watched this hour so you wouldn’t have to, so enter here those who wish to avoid the Skinner crap. I’ve got all the good parts for you. The Mulder and…

‘The X-Files’ 11×05 Review: This William Nonsense

It made no sense then, it makes even less sense now. Welcome to the William arc, aka the most ridiculous thing The X-Files ever tried to pull on us, a tall order when you remember all the things CC actually…

‘The X-Files’ 11×04 Review: To Find Each Other

Well, that was weird, and out there and still so much better than Chris Carter’s platonic musings or medical rape, because at this point, anything and everything is better than the BS Carter is still trying to feed us twenty…

‘The X-Files’ Mid-season Trailer Provides Hope

Hope is that thing with feathers…. Damn you, Chris Carter. Damn you. You’ve done it again. One second I’m here, happy in my I DON’T CARE ABOUT THIS SHOW ANYMORE bubble, and then there’s this trailer and I’m 13 again…

‘The X-Files’ 11×03 Review: Platonic my arse

I’m going to start this review with a caveat, and I want to be really, really clear here. Just because you’re coming across a mostly positive review about a pretty decent episode of a show that changed my life, introduced…

‘The X-Files’ 11×01 Review: Our Struggle

Chris Carter has a thing for repeating titles, as “My Struggle III” will attest to (and Redux II, The Sixth Extinction II, Nothing Important Happened Today II, etc). He also has a thing for complicated plot lines no one cares…

‘The X-Files’ Releases First Season 11 Trailer

Season 11 of The X-Files is almost here. I’m not hyperventilating. I’m not. That’s a lie. I am. But it’s okay. If you clicked on this link, you probably are too. So take deep breaths with me. In, Out. In…

‘The X Files’: Why Every Show Needs a Diverse Writers Room

The X-Files has never been a truly diverse show — in front or behind the cameras. And yet, it felt like this was the time, like we’ve finally gotten to a point where that could change, where our favorite show…

‘The X-Files’ Season 10 Finale Review: My Struggle II

The X-Files is over and we’re not ok. Let’s talk about it. The X-Files season finale had an intro like no other. “My Struggle II” opened up with a recounting of Mulder and Scully’s journey through the paranormal and spooky.…

‘The X-Files’ 10×05 Review “Babylon”

Let’s start off by saying that The X-Files isn’t afraid to cover any topic that comes it’s way. In this revival of the series they’ve made it a point of addressing issues that affect our world today and technologies that…

‘The X-Files’ Review “Home Again”

I always tend to judge episodes by the emotions they evoke in me. Sure, some episodes are better plotted, and some are better acted, but the mark of a brilliant episode, is in the emotions. My emotions, not the characters.…

‘The X-Files’ Teases Scully’s Alien DNA

FOX sure knows how to up the stakes. Bring up the Alien DNA! On paper, debuting new footage for the last episode of this 6-episode revival of The X-Files during the Super Bowl was a bad idea. Everyone was busy watching…

Exclusive Footage from ‘The X-Files’ to air during Super Bowl

It’s Super Bowl Week, which basically means anything and everything advertisers want you to see/know/try is going to air during the game. You want to know why? Because everyone, and when I say everyone, I mean absolutely everyone, will be…

‘The X-Files’ Review: “Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster”

Are you done laughing? I’m not quite done. I need like a minute. Or, quite possibly, twenty. If this The X-Files “mini-series” was meant to showcase the best of what this show had to offer, both in the conspiracy, in…

‘The X-Files’ 10×03 Preview Guide: ‘Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster ’

Regular The X-Files episodes, can you believe it? I’m not sure I can. And since we’ll only get a few more weeks of this happiness, let’s take a moment to rejoice in the normalcy of having The X-Files back on…

‘The X-Files’ returns to huge numbers

If you make them …they will watch? The expectation was: bring back a show like The X-Files, a cultural phenomenon back in the day, and enough people will watch that it’ll make it worthwhile. It won’t be a breakaway hit,…

The X-Files “Founder’s Mutation” Review

Welcome back, The X-Files. Welcome back unexplained phenomena, welcome back Skinner with his awful poker face, welcome back Mulder jumping to conclusions. Welcome back, The X-Files. We’d really, really missed you. Episode Two couldn’t have been more different from the…
