X-Philes Talk X-Files Episode 46: My Struggle III

David is joined by Avi, Tiffany, and Garrett for a cathartic exchange about the merits and frustrations of how Chris Carter is retconning the mythology for contemporary times.

Although I personally finished my initial viewing of the episode with a huge smile on my face and feeling like the show had found its stride again, it unfortunately didn’t take much further thought to recognize the episode’s shortcomings.
