Season X, Episode 6: My Struggle 2on March 7, 2016 at 12:01 am
Oh, man, if Peter Falk had ever done an X-File. That would be my ultimate life experience.
Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief return of Monster of the Week. I’m hoping to get enough subscriptions to my Patreon to relaunch the comic for good. So spread the word. Hope to see you again soon!
If you took a drink every time someone said ‘alien DNA’ in this episode, you would be pass-out drunk 2/3 of the way through, even if what you were drinking was just water.
Shaenon’s idea of substituting ‘muppets’ is a big improvement!
Oh, also: I was impressed by the decision to start the episode with a powerpoint presentation.
This is just Chris Carter forcing FOX to give him another three seasons, with guaranteed salaries up front and a no-trade clause.
Okay, yeah, I wanna see Columbo handle an X-File now!
Scully scolding the rioters into behaving was awesome. But damn it woman, stop waving around what is clearly an IV bag in front of the panicking sick people!
“Lightning boy” – verrry nice. I need to learn backgrounds from you.
Thanks for these six episodes!
Shaenon, now you have me envisioning a Columbo/Kolchak crossover, and in my mind it’s GLORIOUS. Also, aside from the Were-Lizard episode, your comics have been the best thing about the X-Files revival!
Yes – unlike the episodes themselves, as usual, Shaenon, your recaps are a.) fun; b.) funny; and c.) make at least a little bit of sense!! Thank you!! 🙂
And to think that the presence of not one but TWO doctors on this script fleetingly gave me hope. “This is the end” my eye….
…we gotta get the Patreon up to $2,000…
So, this season was all about an alien conspiracy, only a different alien conspiracy, contradicting EVERY PREVIOUS FRIGGIN’ SEASON?
No wonder that when it was sold to the UK only Channel 5 would take it…
