Intro To X
Summary: Watching every single episode of the X-Files for the first time, again. No Spoilers.
Chris and John Pavlich join us for 6x19 “The Unnatural” in which we are all shocked to learn that David Duchovny is competent at something. Brad makes an impassioned plea for old-fashioned traditional values. Millennium 3x16 “Saturn Dreaming of Mercury” is more disturbing the longer you think about it as Lucy Butler tries to show up Frank by going through Jordan.
Michael David and Amanda join us to grieve for those poor 30 yr old teenage virgins and Claire as we discuss the blatantly Chris Carter written 6x18 “Milagro”. Millennium 3x15 “Forcing The End” has Hollis save Drusilla's baby from a Jewish doomsday cult.
Jonathon joins us for 6x17 “Trevor” the story of a poor man beaten down by the anti-man femanazi system who gains the power to walk through walls and find clothes that fit and the dishonorable woman who doesn't know her place. Millennium 3x14 “Matryoshka” takes us back to 1945 to learn about a Jekyll and Hyde/Incredible Hulk Monster and J. Edgar Hoover's interaction with the Millennium Group.
Alirio helps us make sense of 6x16 “Alpha” in which a weredog shapeshifter mails himself to himself as a possible insurance fraud scheme? Also Scully is jealous of a werido Mulder met in a dog fetishist chatroom. Millennium 3x13 “Antipas” brings back Lucy Butler who Freddy Kruger rapes Frank.We also learn that Frank Black does not abide hedge mazes.
Chris and Paul join us to discuss 6x15 "Arcadia" in which a gated community is patrolled by a straight up Trash Heap Garbage Monster. In Millennium 3x12 "The Sound of Snow" Detective Sandwich returns to help out when Frank has to deal with visions of Catherine due to whale songs and white noise.
For the first time ever an episode of The X-Files feels repetitive for a reason. For the “TWILIGHT ZONE” inspired 3x14 "Monday" we are joined by Matt and Mila who wouldn't dare compare it to “Groundhog Day.” In Millennium 3x11 "Collateral Damage" Spike almost kills Peter Watts' daughter but is thwarted with the help of real-life-Frohike Art Bell.
Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow! You cataracts and hurricanoes! We hunker down with Will and Matt to investigate 6x13 "Agua Mala" in which water turns into a tentacle monster. Millennium 3x10 "Borrowed Time" is rad but also supes confusing.
Gabby and Jonathon join us as we gather to pay our respects to an American Hero, Champion of the taxpayer, and National Treasure: Jeffrey Spender and discuss 6x12 "One Son". The mythology continues to make no sense at all and Mulder kills another citizen for no reason. On Millennium 3x09 "Omerta" it's time for a kooky Christmas with Wood Nymphs.
Alirio and Heidi join us for 6x11 "Two Fathers". It's the mythology episode Claire has been begging for! Thrill at the minutes of valuable screen time devoted to an unnecessary exposition monologue! Marvel at the most racially uncomfortable writing sense the last time Chris Carter dared to have a black person in one of his scripts! Rage at the injustices heaped upon Jeff Spender: Champion of the Taxpayer! Agonize over the puzzle of why this episode is called "Two Fathers". In Millennium 3x08 "Human Essence" Hollis has to clear her name and rescue her illegitimate junkie half-sister from a terrible plot.
Evangeline and Will join us to discuss 6x10 "Tithonus" in which Scully goes on adventure, with the guy who isn't Ryan Reynolds but might be from the 1940s, to track down a guy that might be from the 1840s. She then becomes immortal by acting like a J.J. Abrams apologist and ignoring lens flare. Millennium 3x07 "Through a Glass, Darkly" is a super creepy episode that takes us back to the salad days of season one.
Watch out for the terror-birds and typewriters! Alirio and Alex join us as we marvel at the excitement of violations to bio-medical export laws! The stingray has been poisoned by not-so-nano-robots and it's a race against the clock to solve the convoluted mystery... or not? Meanwhile Millennium 3x06 "Skull and Bones" takes another step towards becoming the X-Files as the shades of gray evaporate even further.
Chris joins us to discuss 6x08 "Rain King" in which Scully and Mulder play matchmaker in a weirdly asymmetrical manner to coerce, former-SNL-star-turned-craven-conservative-lunatic, Victoria Jackson into dating a sexually frustrated weatherman. Millennium 3x05 “...Thirteen Years Later” is a bonkers whirlwind of wackiness with KISS.
Alirio joins us for the super special episode 1x14 "Ranger Jarod" in which everyone's favorite super smart guy pretends to be an Army/Park Ranger and loses his virginity. Jarod learns about Star Wars, The Three Stooges, and Boners. Broots and Miss Parker battle for worst dressed.
Bruce Campbell is a sadsack demon looking to start a family. Mulder steals garbage to insert himself into a situation that leads to an elderly woman's life being completely ruined. On Millennium 3x04 "Closure" Hollis tries to shut down a Grand Theft Auto situation by teaching a valuable lesson about seat-belt safety.
Nutty and Mila are tricked into coming to our spooky haunted mansion to discuss 6x05 “How the Ghosts Stole Christmas” the fourth wacky episode in a row. In Millennium 3x03 "TEOTWAWKI ” National Treasure Detective Sandwich makes a comeback to fight Y2K and Frank continues to be an anti-gun badass.
