    Death Comes to Riverdale: A Season Two Retrospective

    Season One of the CW’s breakout hit Riverdale ended its 13-episode run with the shooting of Archie’s father, Fred, by a mysterious masked man. This scene’s significance would carry through most of the edgy Season Two, culminating in both a false end and a true end, drawn out long enough to last the duration of […] More

    A Crucible of Hate: The X-Files Season 11 “Familiar”

    Yesterday’s episode of The X-Files was chock full of ammunition: gun violence, police violence, child death and molestation, zealotry, mob justice and good old fashioned witchery among the major themes, “Familiar” is a modern day Salem Witch trials, complete with the infamous spontaneous human combustion that Scully has always liked to so decry. “Familiar” continues […] More

    Do Drones Dream of Electric Sheep? And Other Stories: The X-Files Season 11 “Rm9sbG93ZXJz”

    I’ll start off this new article with a disclaimer: I am absolutely terrified of sentient technology. I can’t even stand to watch iRobot. It was physically nerve wracking for me to watch last night’s episode. As is turning out to be par for the course, “Rm9sbG93ZXJz” deals heavily with the current social problems facing the […] More

    The Makes and Breaks of Shut Eye

    Shut Eye, much like its protagonists, is a show that doesn’t exactly know what it wants to be. A two season series commissioned by Hulu starring Jeffrey Donovan, Shut Eye features a glimpse into the life of a fraudulent psychic, who ends up experiencing real visions. I knew next to nothing about the show when […] More

    Semper Fidelis: The X-Files Season 11, “Kitten”

    My father is a Vietnam Veteran. I have chosen to begin my analysis of “Kitten” in this manner that anyone reading can be assured I have the utmost respect and support for those who served. Anything which broaches the subject of Vietnam is difficult to write about. I will do my best, as I believe […] More

    Believing isn’t Seeing, Seeing is Believing: The X-Files Season 11, “Ghouli”

    “Ghouli” started out like your typical post-Slenderman storyline. As a Wisconsin resident, I’m more than passably familiar with the phenomenon. Internet stories convince scared, superstitious teenagers that a terrifying being really exists and it out to get you and can be literally anyone, etcetera, etcetera. It was such a classic The X-Files opening, that it […] More

    You Can’t Handle the Truth (Or is it?): The X-Files Season 11, The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat

    Last evening’s search for the truth was more on the nose than usual. “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat” was Darin Morgan’s traditionally satirical episode. Classics like “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose” (my all time favourite of Morgan’s) and “Jose Chung’s ‘From Outer Space’” (not high on my list of favourites…) to Season 10’s “Mulder and […] More
