We get another mythology two-parter, but this one is less about shocking revelations and more about emotional growth, as Mulder and Scully work to figure out the events of “Piper Maru” and “Apocrypha.”
“Revelations” is a spiritual successor (literally) to season one’s “Beyond the Sea”, as Mulder and Scully swap places. Then, Darin Morgan returns with “War of the Coprophages”, a delightfully deep and goofy episode about killer cockroaches. Yes, you read that right.
The X-Files gives us the rapidly-becoming traditional midseason mythology two-parter with “Nisei” and “731”, and it also doesn’t give us much new information or answer any questions, but it’s certainly gripping!
The X-Files gets postmodern this week in “The Walk” and “Oubliette”, two episode of the show that are more interested in being about The X-Files than about their plot. But hey, we’re extremely okay with this!
A young Jack Black and a young Giovanni Ribisi guest star in “D.P.O.”, and a older Peter Boyle guest stars in “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose”. Also! What is the best pie?
We kick off season three of The X-Files by talking about the two (three?) parter “The Blessing Way” and “Paper Clip”. It’s exciting, dramatic, a little cheesy, but leaves us really excited for this season.
We reach the end of season two of The X-Files with “Anasazi”, an alien conspiracy episode that quickly spirals out of control in the most fun way possible. Plus! Who is Skinner, anyway?
