Season 10 Retrospective

Finally – much later than originally advertised – the final episode of X-Philes Talk X-Files (until season 11!) has arrived…

Join David as he answers a slew of listener questions, then is joined by Avi, Tiffany, and Garrett to discuss the revival as a whole and take part in a quiz with questions based on My Struggle, Founder’s Mutation, Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster, Home Again, Babylon, and My Struggle II.

We also have a guest interview and even more besides. Yes, it’s a jam-packed final episode that is a miracle it was edited down this short.

I really hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much for listening.

My Struggle II

So, er, that’s all folks… Season 10 ends with an episode that a lot of fans had a lot of problems with – for a lot of very different reasons.

David tries to make some sense of the resulting mess with the help of Keva, Jessa, and Trish – the latter two of whom have spoken with Dr. Anne Simon and have relevant science to impart that could shed light on the future of The X-Files’ mythology storyline.

This is also your last chance to send in a listener question, as we will be doing one more show next week where we address the entire six episode revival, so head on over to davidtharwood.com now and hit “Contact.”

Babylon

Babylon

Only Chris Carter could write an episode dealing with the idea of a united humanity and make it one of the most divisive hours of television ever. Fans either loved it or hated it.

Join David, Jessa, and Roi as we talk Babylon this week on X-Philes Talk X-Files.

Oh, and SPOILER alert: this episode of XPTXF contains strong language from the very beginning.

Home Again

HomeAgain1

Who says you can’t go Home Again?

The fourth episode of The X-Files’ tenth season (though the second produced) pays homage to the classic era of the show while at once feeling fresh and modern.

Yep, this Glen Morgan written/directed episode has something for everyone to love, right?

Listen in as David, Jessa, and Roi discuss the episode that saw us saying “hello” to the Band-Aid Nose Man, saying “goodbye” to Maggie Scully, and singing along to “Downtown” while a Lawn Gnome Suburban Lady is violently torn apart.

Ah, X-Files, we love you 🙂

Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster

From the moment we first glimpse the stoner couple last seen in Quagmire, it seemed Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster was destined to become an instant classic beloved by x-philes all over the world. And indeed it was – and is. It’s a bloody great episode – funny, charming, and filled with easter eggs for the most devout fans.

Unfortunately, not everyone loved it…

Tune in to this week’s episode of X-Philes Talk X-Files to hear David, Garrett, and Tiffany discuss the episode one of them describes as “the best thing X-Files has done in 14+ years.”
