The X-Files Newbie Recap: “Hell Money” & “José Chung’s ‘From Outer Space'”

"The only things you were abducted by were your rampaging hormones, you punk!"

A Christmas shopping bender and one family birthday 'do later, I'm so zonked I've only done two episodes. Apologies in advance, especially cos there's no way I've done the baffling delight that was "José Chung's 'From Outer Space'" justice. Send help.

The X-Files Newbie Recap: “2Shy,” “The Walk,” & “Oubliette”

"It's not yet the finely detailed insanity you expect from me, it's just a theory"

I'm taking a brief hiatus due to holidays, and I regret to leave things on the emotional gut-punch of "Oubliette". Skinner, wherefore art thou? I need a hug.

The X-Files Newbie Recap: “D.P.O.,” “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose,” & “The List”

"Thank heaven for happenstance."

Ah, the sweet smell of a (mostly) emotionally non-devastating week. Greetings and felicitations, friends. "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" may be one of the finest episodes of anything ever but it has the misfortune to be bookmarked by two decidedly pedestrian ones. Not very fitting, writers. This week's wall of text ahead.

The X-Files Newbie Recap: “Soft Light”, “Our Town”, & “Anasazi”

"I thought nothing gave you nightmares." // "Yeah, well, I was young."

In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth, and then She created Dana Scully. "Anasazi", you guys. I have lost the ability to can.

The X-Files Newbie Recap: “End Game”, “Fearful Symmetry”, & “Død Kalm”

NO ONE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD IS ACTUALLY NAMED TRONDHEIM though.

The conclusion of an epic two-parter which does to Mulder's fragile psyche the kind of damage lately reserved for Scully, and then two episodes so utterly loopy they have to represent an absolute nadir in the imaginations of whoever came up with them. Chunky walls of text (and, full disclosure, some screenshots of deceased onscreen animals) ahead.

The X-Files Newbie Recap: “Fresh Bones” & “Colony”

"What do you know about zombies?"

Two intense and lengthy recaps ahead, peeps. I hate to leave it on the cliffhanger of "Colony" for a week but, er, you all already know what happens. In the meantime, think of me.

"Anything slightly freakazoid"

Could all the weirdos get in the sea so Scully can have a nice normal work week for a change?

The X-Files Newbie Recap: “Excelsis Dei” & “Aubrey”

"I seem to recall you having some pretty extreme hunches!" // "I never have."

"Excelsis Dei" can be flushed into the Netherworld with "Fire" tbh.

The X-Files Newbie Recap: “Firewalker” & “Red Museum”

Disappointingly, "Firewalker" is not a Twin Peaks reference.

This week, volcanic spores and cultists. Standard!
