Review: X-Files #14

By guest writer David Leninhawk.

The 14th issue of this line of IDW “The X-Files” titles takes place sometime after the recent limited run revival of the television series. The revival was met with mixed reviews, with critiques ranging from the increasing absurdity of the conspiracy throughline to the portrayal of a transgender prostitute in one of the stronger, stand-alone episodes from the return. Most of the critiques centered on one man, “X-Files” creator Chris Carter. It has been noted, in numerous forums, that perhaps the one thing that could vastly improve the franchise would be to divorce it from its creator.

Lost In Sci-Fi: The X-Files

This week the crew looks back and forward to The X-Files. That little sci-fi show from the 90s that became a pop culture phenomenon. Elizabeth and Jada are huge fans, where Leland’s only ever watched a few episodes. He gets to ask all his questions and gets schooled. Also we take Lucifer to the mat and beat the crap out of it. Good times. Please download and enjoy! Read On

Binary System Podcast #23 – Return of The X-Files

It’s another week and still no Night Vale, but that’s okay because we’ve got X-Files! The twins break down the first episode of the new X-Files series, with all the conspiracies, explosions, and the complete lack of anybody making out with anybody else. But they get away from that for a bit to talk about Twin Peaks (because David Duchovny’s in that) and Top Gear (because Gillian Anderson’s in that) so really, they didn’t get very far away at all.

Binary System Podcast #21 – New year, out of control already

Without a Night Vale episode this week, we set off to do a short podcast about what we’ve got coming up for January. It quickly spiraled into a discussion about X-Files, book authors, spoiler warnings, fan fiction, Warehouse 13, Mission Impossible, Doctor Who, and Star Wars. Of course. (Kathryn hasn’t seen Force Awakens yet so we’re still SPOILER FREE.)

Review: The X-Files Vol. 1 – The Agents, The Bureau and The Syndicate

Happy New Year, everyone! Time to start looking forward to everything coming in 2016, including the brand-new The X-Files miniseries set to start in (checks imdb) twelve days?! Good grief, I’m way behind on my fangirling here.

It’s been more than thirteen years since the last episode aired (seven since the second movie. Which I haven’t seen yet. Don’t judge.) so even the most dedicated fan might want to reacquaint themselves with the details about the adventures of Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. If you’re like me you may have a few old magazines you can flip through in order to find your favorite interviews. Or you could get a copy of The X-Files Vol. 1: The Agents, The Bureau and The Syndicate, due out in stores this week; 178 pages compiling the best features, interviews and profiles from The Official X-Files Magazine.

Review – David Duchovny’s “Holy Cow”

With all the hubbub about the upcoming X-Files episodes, I thought it was time to finally read David Duchovny’s novel Holy Cow. I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I’d heard it talked about animal cruelty, and tolerance for others, which sounded like a pretty serious message.

This is not a serious book. This is David Duchovny being a complete goofball.

Comic Issues #216 – The Truth is (Sometimes?) Out There

It’s a rumor-filled podcast as the crew talks about the rumors of a new Star Trek show, a new Alien Nation, and a new X-Files mini series. (Spoilers: one of those is totally not a thing.)

After that they get into the newest Uncanny X-Men and Scott’s flip-flopping and Havok’s lack of flip-flopping. They they break down the awesomeness of Darth Vader #3 and the newest Rocket Raccoon, and how Anthony just loves reading long novels and Elizabeth loves Squirrel Girl. (Spoilers: a couple of those last ones are totally not a thing either.)

Weekly Geek Question!

Hey, look at me! I’m drawing your attention!  Why would I do such a thing?  Why, to let you know about our best geek question from last week!

“Anthony, why are you telling me about last week’s question?” You may be asking me out loud where I can’t hear you, or in your mind where I’ve also never been.  Let me answer you anyway. 

Every week day at the Comic Issues Facebook and Twitter we ask a particularly “Geeky” question ranging from topical news to the questions never dared ask.  We do it because you’re the reason why we do what we do and we want to make you a part of it.

Last week our best question came from TV Land when we asked:
Geek Question! Monsters come in all shapes and sizes, but they get hunted. What’s your favorite monster hunting show? (ie X-Files, Supernatural, Destination Truth)
