It’s a cat-astrophic occurrence: Darrell and Chip are mixing it up, just like many viewers of this week’s episode of The X-Files! It’s the result of Season 11 Episode 6 “Kitten”! This Skinner-centric episode was written by Gabe Rotter and directed by Carol Banker, and it aired on February 7, 2018.

The very surprising lead news comes to us this week via Digital Spy in their interview with Chris Carter saying that ‘The X-Files has more life in it – with or without Gillian Anderson’! We also have The Verge’s opinion that in a post-truth environment it’s good that The X-Files has gotten political, plus The Evening Standard revealing that the truth is out there, and so is Gillian Anderson in a new PETA campaign! Then we get into our discussion with Chip finding a lot to like and Darrell finding many things he wished could have been better.

Then it’s Spooky Drawer time! Hiding inside is our old nemesis Alvin Kersh! He must know something about both Project MKNAOMI and Project MKUltra, and it isn’t good! Next we reminisce about old school X-Files, specifically “One Breath” from Season 2 and how it relates to tonight’s show! Then it’s time for your always terrific opinions and feedback!
