THE X-FILES REVIEW: “BABYLON”

x_files_returns_2016
I am seriously done with this The X-Files revival. After “Babylon” I am just not having it anymore. This episode was so insubstantial that I barely have anything to say.

THE X-FILES REVIEW: “MY STRUGGLE”

x_files_returns_2016
This X-Files revival was concocted explicitly for ratings which still has me on guard. The second thing that has me on guard? To be overdramatic about it: The X-Files is a foundational piece of my soul.
