ALIAS – ‘Parity’ (1×03 – Review)

If Alias, in its opening two introductory episodes, flirted with the idea that the show is a post-Cold War espionage thriller attempting to understand and resolve the consequences of the 20th century’s longest-running and defining ideological...

The X-Files – ‘My Struggle IV’

WILLIAM: I know the truth can only come from my father, a man I’ve only seen in my visions, but who I already know I hate… How do you end The X-Files? This is a question fans have been asking themselves for quarter of a century, ever since Chris...

The X-Files – ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’

MULDER: I’ve always wondered how this was gonna end. Originally the eighth episode in the ten hour run of The X-Files’ eleventh and almost certainly last season, ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ was switched around with last weeks ‘Familiar’ and you...

The X-Files – ‘This’

MULDER: “How do you like that? The FBI finally found out what it’s like to be looked on as a little spooky!” ‘This’ doesn’t just feel like an episode of The X-Files. It feels as much like a core distillation of not just everything the show says...
