Tuning In reaches its final episode as Mulder and Scully go on a “Field Trip”. We also talk about the series as a whole. But don’t despair about the end of Tuning In–head over to trekaboutshow.com for more of our podcasting. Thanks for listening!
Tuning In Episode 107: The X-Files: The Unnatural/Three of a Kind
David Duchovny writes and directs his first episode of the show, and “The Unnatural” brings us maybe the strongest disagreement yet. Then in “Three of a Kind”, the Lone Gunmen try to rescue someone.
Tuning In Episode 106: The X-Files: Trevor/Milagro
“Trevor” is a complete mess of an episode that almost defeats us. Then in “Milagro”, a pretentious writer defeats himself.
Tuning In Episode 105: The X-Files: Arcadia/Alpha
The X-Files goes all-in on the shipping in “Arcadia”, and then in “Alpha”, a ship brings trouble.
Tuning In Episode 104: The X-Files: Agua Mala/Monday
Mulder and Scully head to Florida to meet with Arthur Dales and get stuck in a bad sitcom in “Agua Mala”, and then the agents get stuck in the same day in “Monday”.
Tuning In Episode 103: The X-Files: Two Fathers/One Son
Somewhat bizarrely, The X-Files has decided to end the mythology storyline in the middle of the sixth season. The two-parter “Two Fathers” and “One Son” is somewhat successful but still leaves us wanting an actual explanation.
Tuning In Episode 102: The X-Files: S.R. 819/Tithonus
We get another Skinner-centric episode with “S.R. 819” and a Scully-centric episode with “Tithonus”.
Tuning In Episode 101: The X-Files: Terms of Endearment/The Rain King
Bruce Campbell appears on The X-Files in “Terms of Endearment”, and weather appears in “The Rain King”.
Tuning In Episode 100: The X-Files: Dreamland II/How the Ghosts Stole Christmas
On the Tuning In 100th episode spectacular, we wrap up the body-switch two-parter by dunking on “Dreamland II”, then The X-Files gets really, really weird in “How the Ghosts Stole Christmas”.
Tuning In Episode 99: The X-Files: Triangle/Dreamland
Chris Carter must really be obsessed with The Wizard of Oz, as he gives us a riff on it in the remarkable “Triangle”. Then, the show decides to become terrible in “Dreamland”.
