The X-Files Podcast

Each week (well, not really) Dean and Josh put an episode of The X-Files under their profane microscope to see what happens. They endeavor to mix thoughtful analysis and commentary with absurdity… they make themselves laugh.

For once Dean doesn't have to misremember the episode and 13 year-old Josh fist-pumps at the mention of caltrops. Ben Prugh does Josh's homework again while Dean toils away in the trenches.

On this week's episode we have a commentary track. Basically Dean and Josh watch "Shapes" and comment over it, so make some room on the couch and fetch us some beer and pretzels. We promise to talk over the entire episode.

This episode may not compel you with the power of "Gawd" but it's an easy watch, and despite a real lack of motivation that makes much sense, there is plenty to like with Miracle Man, just don't expect it to top any "best" or "favorite" X-Files episode lists.

This is a perfect example of outstanding execution with a tight and well-planned script. The lads imagine what this episode would look like from Ranheim's position, and they reflect on the classic nature of the "transporting dangerous cargo" story. Outside of some logistical inconsistencies in travel planning, and a miss in the early part of the investigation, it's clearly excellent television. The lads also heap praise upon the Iraqi pilot who managed a kill, but lament the unfortunate journey of an advanced alien that traveled to Earth, only to be shot down by the less-than-formidable Iraqi Air Force.

Why can no one remember this episode...? Is it the Mandela Effect? Is it a rift into a multiverse? Perhaps the lock which contains this mystery can be picked (or bashed) by Mr. Salahander, or maybe a well-timed Deep Throat encounter in a quaint pub? Stick around to see if Josh (despite his disability) gets the job he desperately needs as a piano tuner.

Dean and Josh consider why Lazarus is one of those middling episodes that nobody really talks or cares about, and they keep coming back to the same culprit: Agent Jack Willis, despite Christopher Allport's best efforts, just isn't a character that is particularly likable or sympathetic. The episode relies too heavily on creating sympathy for him through Scully's POV. Sadly, it doesn't work. That tattoo thing is dumb too, but neither reason is cause to write the episode off. The episode is not bad, on the contrary, there is plenty to like especially Allport's performance. There is also some slick tactical movement (finally!), the always popular psychic transference device, and some legitimate police work from Mulder.

History doesn't look too favorably on "Gender Bender", but Josh and Dean give the thematic choices a bit of latitude and ask you to consider some alternative ways to consider the issues of sexuality present in this episode. Outside of the social implications there is plenty to celebrate. Most notably, Rob Bowman. Bowman made his X-Files directorial debut and composed some beautiful shots of the Kindred village, the eerie barn ritual at night, and some slick (and eerie) forest photography. Gender Bender isn't topping any favorite lists, but it is certainly a beautifully shot and likable episode.

This week we dive into some cloak and dagger spy craft fun! Mulder instinctively stumbles toward truths while Scully displays quick-wit and agency in the face of danger. A proper mythology episode that kicks-off a major X-Files through line.

If you hate metaphors and love this episode it'd be wise to take a pass. Josh is surrounded by devils this week, and they whisper corrupt influences into his ear. Will he have the power to resist? Can he find something to like in this - what could be - series finale? Is Dean's voice among the ranks of the angels or the wicked devils? Don your spiritual armor 'ole faithful X-Files fan, and take a trek through Hell with us.

Spin the wheel of wacky X-files episode types and you'll come up with a variety that seems a bit incongruous. That is the best way to describe "Nothing Lasts Forever". Josh and Dean agree that this episode has some great moments, but is - at times - inexplicably silly. Is this an episode that is lifted beyond how good it is by the likes of Fox and Scully?

The X-Files goes back to its wooded roots with “Familiar” and the lads dig it. Listen on as they try to figure out rampaging cops, Chief Strong’s angular features, and predators both sexual and canine. Pro tip: don’t let your children watch Biggletiggles or Mr. Chuckleteeth.

Josh says he'll never shake a robots hand, but Dean contends that if he did (in the not too distant future) - he wouldn't ever realize it. Are you pro-robot? Are you a dirty collaborator? If you watch BSG then you know what happens to them. Lots going on this week, but woe to the robot sympathizer - you'll get no quarter here.

A Skinner-centric episode that goes way back to NAM, and Josh and Dean are onboard. They've always been big fans of Skinner, and this week continues the trend. This episode is ... good, but by no means great. Are there inexplicable moments? Yes. You may wonder, "Is that the fat version of the "I see dead people" kid actually setting John Rambo traps by himself?" Answer --  it appears so. Are there silly tropes? 100%. But "Kitten" does manage to give us a glimpse into a fan favorite in Skinner. Something never really done (with this much focus) before this season.
