X-Files is back, with episode 1001, “My Struggle”. It was the best of X-Files (cool space ships! Mulder and Scully! Cancer Man!), it was the worst of X-Files (retcons galore, crazy conspiracy word salad monologues, our heroes flip flopping on their skepticism / gullibility). The key was, we were kind of braced for that, so by and large we enjoyed the introduction to the relaunch / reboot for what it was, and are eager to see what they get up to now that the heavy lifting is out of the way. What did you think? We got a wide range of opinions via email and the forums, but we’d love to hear from you using the contact methods below. We’ll be back for the second episode tomorrow, see you then!

Greetings X-Philes! Jim and A.Ron begin their coverage of the six episode mini-series version of the X-Files with a bit of a preview podcast, to get the feeds primed and pumping for this weekend’s premiere. We discuss our history with the X-Files, favorite episodes, and hopes and fears for the weeks ahead. Our coverage of the first episode airing on Fox the evening of Sunday, January 24th, will be out Tuesday, January 26th! See you then.
Jim and A.Ron send off Jack Bauer in style, as we consider a surprisingly emotional and resonant season finale of Fox’s 24: Live Another Day. We talk Alzheimer’s, field agent professionalism, time jumps, where they can go for as theoretical Day 10, and consider the question, is 24 made for Netflix?
Jim and A.Ron have a ball discussing bloody Merkin Mouths, GIFs, the credibility of President Grandpa, the viability of satellite strikes, and Chloe’s increasingly poor survival strategies. All this and a few backchannel communications from our fellow fans!
24: Live Another Day really hits it’s stride as it amps up the silliness and the action to a fever pitch, fan-satisfying level. Jim and A.Ron talk about the Good Jack Bad Kate routine, remote controlled nipple clamps, presidential legacies, trigger happy military commanders, and the efficient wrapping up of multiple storylines.
Jim and A.Ron break down a loaded Jack Bauer Power Hour as Heller cheats death, Jack gives Cat flying lessons, Audrey tosses Jack the keys to her hoo-ha, B.RATT takes flight, and Kate tries to solve the mystery of who killed Mr. PMOB in the Garage with a Dirk, and we’re left wondering, just who the hell is the president now, anyway?!
Jim and A.Ron discuss the latest episode of 24: Live Another Day, and debate the morals of terrorists, the ethics of doctors, and try to get down to the bottom of the race for ineptness that is Poor Man’s Orlando Bloom versus Benny B-RAT’s goon.
Join Jim and A.Ron for another installment of the Jack Bauer Power Hour! In this episode, we discuss good guy use of torture, real-life hellfire, plausibility of back channel communications, and moleception!
