Season 2, Episode 11: Excelsis Deion March 15, 2013 at 12:01 am
According to Wikipedia, Entertainment Weekly called this episode “offbeat and cute.” This episode opens with an onscreen rape. Sometimes I don’t miss the ’90s after all.
There’s a whole moral at the end about how our society needs to show more respect to its senior citizens, which would maybe be more convincing if the senior citizens aren’t all jerks. The only one who even tries to stop the ghost rape is the old lady from the marble rye episode of “Seinfeld.” She deserves respect. The rest of them, feh.
The actress from Seinfeld was Frances Bay, who died recently. She was a local celebrity here in Manhattan Beach, and I was pretty tickled when I got to meet her.
Panel 6 made me laugh, because when my sister reads it, she is going to go nuclear all over again, and I can hear her doing it, even though I am not physically present. Thank you for that precious gift! hehehe
Maybe they meant Unity’s style of “respect”.
Mulder didn’t suggest it was aliens?
I have been meaning to write for months, MoTW has become one of my go to, can’t wait for the next one, webcomics, thank you 🙂
Because of you dear lady I and many other gay geeks in D.C. have been launched onto an epic X-Files re-watch marathon, I trust you are happy now yes? 😉
Excellent and smartly done, again, thank you so much! 🙂
Yeah, I always thought this episode was creepy in more of a bad way than a good way. The mural was pretty cool though.
I can’t begin to tell you how much I’m enjoying you X-Files comic. This is amazing! Great tribute to the show and something every fan should check out.
Yah, I stopped watching this ep right after the initial interview with the victim. I just knew, however it turned out, it would be as awkward and painful to watch as possible. My instincts are pretty good that way. It’s how I avoided everything after mid-season 2 of Heroes.
Epic. This one is just plain epic. Best so far thanks to panel 6, and Scully’s expression in panel 3. I have no words to tell you how much I’m loving this comic.
Panel 2 is…. perfect. Come to think of it, it would be perfect for a few other episodes in Season 2 too.
I normally like the occasional episode where Mulder is the skeptic, but the fact that he’s skeptical about a woman being brutally raped, when all the medical evidence is there, makes this one pretty ugly.
