by Jeff Fountainon May 14, 2018
With a title like “Blind Cannibal Assassins”, I was very excited about the possibilities of this episode. Thankfully, it didn’t disappoint, with some phenomenal action scenes, a face-off between Pilgrim and The Widow and yet another reminder of how being a clipper always comes back to haunt your ass.

Review: The X-Files Mix Date Night and Technology Run Amok in “RmsbG93ZXJz”

by Jeff Fountainon March 2, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* There have been numerous episodes that explore this territory, both on The X-Files and many other shows.

*SPOILERS AHEAD* Even though the main arc of the season involving the Klingon war was wrapped up too quickly and too neat for me, there was plenty of nostalgia and solid storylines that made this a great episode to end the season with.

Review: Star Trek Discovery Takes a Deep Breath in “The War Without, The War Within”

by Jeff Fountainon February 6, 2018
The first thirteen episodes of this season, the show’s first season, have been pretty much the ‘full speed ahead, take no prisoners’ kind of approach.

by Jeff Fountainon February 1, 2018
With a little bit of the monster of the week theme and a whole lot of heart-wrenching, soul-searching as a parent, “Ghouli” was successful in giving us more information on William and a few creature moments at the same time.

Review: The X-Files is Laugh Out Loud Fun in “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat”

by Jeff Fountainon January 25, 2018
There are times when The X-Files can be its own worst enemy. As wonderful as Mulder and Scully are together, his conspiracy ramblings and her science-speak can sometimes get far too heavy, too convoluted and it can weigh an episode down. That is why episodes like “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat” are such a […]

Review: The X-Files Shows Off Its Strengths in “Plus One”

by Jeff Fountainon January 18, 2018
Thankfully leaving the mythology behind, Chris Carter showed off his still impressive writing chops with an episode that had a nice monster of the week story but more importantly, showed off what The X-Files is really about, that being the wonderful relationship between Mulder and Scully. Yes, the mythology, the monster stories and all the […]
