Ranking the Episodes of The X-Files Season 1 – #17-20

Hi all, I'm continuing through my irrefutable rankings of the first season X-Files episodes. Last time, I talked about Space, Shapes, Ghost in the Machines, and The Jersey Devil. Those episodes for the most part were irredeemable. The episodes on this list, while not good, generally do at least something right. They just might do… Continue reading Ranking the Episodes of The X-Files Season 1 – #17-20

Ranking the Episodes of The X-Files Season 1 – #21-24

I have a serious problem when it comes to re-watching television shows. I tend to enjoy my subsequent viewings more than my first viewing so my TV is usually inundated with repeats of stuff I've already seen. Not a problem for me, but my wife gets pretty exhausted with how much I watch things, particularly… Continue reading Ranking the Episodes of The X-Files Season 1 – #21-24

My Struggle V – AKA My Experience Watching The X-Files S11E10 (“My Struggle IV”)

Boy it's a good thing that I have mentally checked out of the mythology in Seasons 10 and 11. Otherwise, My Struggle IV would have left me frothing in rage. As it is, I am merely amused by how poorly the My Struggle quartet stacks up to the rest of Season 11. My Struggle to… Continue reading My Struggle V – AKA My Experience Watching The X-Files S11E10 (“My Struggle IV”)

“This” Was an Improvement – My Review of The X-Files S11E2 (This)

"This" was a massive improvement for Season 11 of the X-Files over the premiere.  The premiere was sloppy, poorly acted, horribly written and badly paced.   Thankfully,  the majority of my problems with the premiere were minimized here and what we got was an episode that (mostly) would have felt right at home in the original… Continue reading “This” Was an Improvement – My Review of The X-Files S11E2 (This)

My Struggling Impressions of The X-Files S11E1 – My Struggle III

The two mythology episodes in Season 10 were utter garbage.  I was so excited to see them take the show in a new direction while keeping the atmosphere, pacing, characterizations and drama that I loved from my youth.  But they completely failed in every aspect over those two episodes.  No atmosphere (it felt like I… Continue reading My Struggling Impressions of The X-Files S11E1 – My Struggle III

Mulder and Scully Get Their Jersies Deviled – A Retroactive Recap/Review of The X-Files Season 1 Episode 5 (The Jersey Devil)

Recap: Back in the early 1900's, while wholesome families sing wholesome songs during wholesome car rides and wholesome father's dutifully fix tires while wholesomely cursing ("darn it!"), a decidedly unwholesome man-beast murders the wholesome father before being shot to death by a wholesome search party. Years later, Mulder is not being very wholesome and is… Continue reading Mulder and Scully Get Their Jersies Deviled – A Retroactive Recap/Review of The X-Files Season 1 Episode 5 (The Jersey Devil)
