A Pointless Review of The X-Files Season 1 Episode 3 – Squeeze

Pointless Review There was a time when I was unfamiliar with The X-Files' unholy trinity of Robert Patrick Modell, Donald Addie Pfaster, and Eugene Victor Tooms. I'd read about these iconic villains while perusing The X-Files message boards but as…

A Pointless Review of The X-Files Season 1 Episode 2 – Deep Throat

Pointless Review The Pilot introduced the world to The X-Files and did a great job of nailing the show's identity right away.  For that I am eternally grateful; enough that I have written four (!) separate reviews of that episode on this blog. …

A Pointless Review of The X-Files Season 1 Episode 1 – Pilot

Pointless Review My X-Files fanaticism began during the middle of the fourth season when it was already a glossy, immaculately produced mini-movie that happened to come out every week.  David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson could play their characters in their sleep…

Ranking the Episodes of The X-Files Season 3 – #4-6

Ranking the Episodes of The X-Files Season 3 – #21-24
