Tuning In Episode 80: The X-Files, El Mundo Gira/Leonard Betts

“El Mundo Gira” is a much less competent riff on “Jose Chung’s From Outer Space”, whereas “Leonard Betts” is a much more competent riff on “Squeeze”. Also! Scully has cancer, apparently. iTunes RSS

Tuning In Episode 79: The X-Files, Terma/Paper Hearts

The latest mythology two-parter second part, “Terma”, is just another mythology episode. However, “Paper Hearts” is very much a heretical questioning of one of the central mysteries of The X-Files. iTunes RSS

Tuning In Episode 78: The X-Files, Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man/Tunguska

Glen Morgan’s first solo script for The X-Files, “Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man”, raises a lot of questions about the titular characters but doesn’t provide any concrete answers. “Tunguska” is another mythology episode that doesn’t provide any answers.

Tuning In Episode 77: The X-Files, The Field Where I Died/Sanguinarium

Glen Morgan and James Wong continue to get experimental with “The Field Where I Died”, and in “Sanguinarium” a pair of sisters, Vivian and Valerie Mayhew, (who sadly never wrote for The X-Files again) gives us the ur-X-Files episode. Plus! Is Game of Thrones a good TV show? (Spoiler alert: no.) iTunes RSS

Tuning In Episode 75: The X-Files, Herrenvolk/Home

Tuning In returns to The X-Files at an interesting point, as the fourth season of the show was the first one that aired on Sunday nights. “Herrenvolk” is basically a reintroduction to all the mythology backstory, and “Home” feels like a gauntlet-throwing episode. iTunes RSS
