The X-Files gives us its first Skinner episode, with “Avatar”, and it’s one of Eric’s favorite episodes of the show. Then, in “Quagmire”, the writer of “Revelations”, Kim Newton, does her spin on a Darin Morgan episode. Also! Eric really wants a red raincoat. Too bad he no longer lives in Portland. iTunes RSS

“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. iTunes RSS

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! iTunes RSS
