Another week, another solid episode of The X-Files. Your podcast crew could get used to this. XFN's Avi Quijada and myself Keva Andersen join David T. Harwood to talk about the adventures of everyone's favorite bald eagle, A.D. Walter Skinner, in "Kitten."
We enjoyed the classic feel of the episode that's reflected not just in the story told but in overall look and feel of the show. Avi also shares some behind-the-scenes details that didn't make it into her interview with Gabe Rotter and Mitch Pileggi.
We also debate the many references to Trump so far in Season 11, the future of the show without Gillian Anderson, and what fans would like to see happen. Check out this week's episode here or in the player below. Be sure to let us know what you think.
In James Wong's episode, "Ghouli," Mulder and Scully are finally (sort of) reunited with their long lost son, and your podcast crew feels like we've finally been reunited with The X-Files.
XFN's Roi Ollson and myself Keva Andersen join David T. Harwood on this week's X-Philes Talk X-Files and find ourselves mostly in agreement over the quality of the episode. That we all agree could be an X-File itself....
That's not to say we don't find things to nitpick, we wouldn't be Philes if we didn't. But the creepy story, emotional moments, and stellar acting give us a lot to cheer about. Check out this week's podcast here or in the player below. Then head over to X-Philes Talk X-Files and let us know what you think!
So was "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat" the best episode of The X-Files ever, or was it a really good Saturday Night Live sketch? This week on X-Philes Talk X-Files myself and XFN's Ky Johnson joined David T. Harwood for a chat about Darin Morgan's episode and we have a hunch we've got the unpopular opinion on it this week.
We dive into the humor of it as well as a lot of pondering (and perhaps disagreement) on what Darin was trying to say. Will there always be more X-Files, or should we really just remember how it all was and be content with that?

The ship sets sail on this week's episode of X-Philes Talk X-Files. XFN's Roi Ollson and Jessa Schlitt join David T. Harwood for the good and the bad of Chris Carter's "Plus One." They dive into how an episode that starts as creepy never really explores the "how" of the evil but rather turns into more of a "Mulder and Scully shacking up" episode. Not that many fans were complaining about that part, but we digress!
They also address the "St. Rachel" theories and whether Chris Carter is foreshadowing or simply trolling fans in a way only he can.
We'll say "This" was a little easier to talk about than last week's episode! I, Keva Andersen, join David T. Harwood to discuss Glen Morgan's epic episode. Some call it X-Files does Black Mirror but we also argue it's really X-Files influences Black Mirror which influences X-Files.
We dissect some of the Easter eggs and revel in pointing out how much better any episode is when the writers stick to letting Mulder and Scully work together.
We do also touch on the CSM's William revelation, discuss Gillian Anderson's assertion that she's finished playing Scully for good, and how fans are dealing with the thought that this could really and truly be the end of the show.
