  • The X-Files 11×10 Review: My Struggle IV

    I wasn’t sure if The X-Files could wrap things up in just one episode, and while “My Struggle IV” proved they could, it came with a couple caveats: they wrapped up what they wanted to, nothing more, and they did it in one heck of a rush. Don’t get me wrong, the pacing actually wasn’t […]


  • The X-Files 11×09 Review: Nothing Lasts Forever

    The idea of faith has always been part of the story (if not the plot) in The X-Files, and maybe it’s fitting that “Nothing Lasts Forever” restored my faith in this season. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content in whole to other websites. Linkbacks are encouraged.


  • The X-Files 11×08 Review: Familiar

    After watching “Familiar” and then thinking about it for the better part of a day, I’m still not sure how I feel about it, though I think I know what’s to blame for that: Mr. Chuckleteeth and the Bibbletiggles. Don’t get me wrong, “Familiar” was a difficult episode for several reasons, not least of which […]


  • The X-Files 11×07 Review: Rm9sbG93ZXJz

    I wish I had a better excuse for this X-Files review being so late, but I don’t. The long and the short of it is that I simply didn’t like “Rm9sbG93ZXJz”. I’m almost afraid to admit as much, because at least on my social media feeds the response to “Rm9sbG93ZXJz” has been overwhelmingly positive. Unfortunately, […]


  • The X-Files 11×06 Review: Kitten

    Well, we were promised more background on Skinner this season, and while “Kitten” was a generally good episode, it also wasn’t really what I expected in regards to learning more about Skinner. Weirdly enough, even though I hoped for more about Skinner’s recent history and what’s going through his head with this whole Smoking Man […]


  • The X-Files 11×05 Review: Ghouli

    I’m not quite sure why I’ve been struggling to write my review of this week’s X-Files episode “Ghouli”, but I have a feeling it’s because I don’t think I liked it as much as I was supposed to. “Ghouli” certainly got off on the right foot; the opening scene had just the right amount of […]


  • The X-Files 11×04 Review: The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat

    This week’s rollicking good time of an episode, “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat”, was another one in the vein of “Jose Chung’s from Outer Space” and season 10’s “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster”…but as silly as it was, it also made some really good (if harsh) points about the current state of society. […]


  • The X-Files 11×03 Review: Plus One

    While I wasn’t fond of the season 11 premiere, it’s safe to say that The X-Files is back on track with “Plus One”, which was a great follow-up to last week’s “This”. I’ll get this out of the way – perhaps I missed something, but the one thing that confused me about “Plus One” was […]


  • The X-Files 11×02 Review: This

    It’s been a really long time since an episode of The X-Files dangled something so darn hopeful in my face…and then snatched it away so quickly, while still delivering a really, really good episode. “This” was all that and maybe a little bit more. When Langly appeared on Mulder’s phone, my first thought was “YES! […]


  • The X-Files 11×01 Review: My Struggle III

    The first season of The X-Files revival left us dangling nearly two years ago, but the finale that left me asking, “Wait, what? Why?” with all of its loose ends was almost entirely wrapped up in the season 11 premiere, “My Struggle III”. I suppose I should have expected as much based on the episode […]
