Season 2: Episode 8 - One Breath
Z: Scully’s back! Scully’s back! (Thank God.)
I felt this episode borrowed heavily from the uncanny, dreamy imagery of Twin Peaks - one of my favorite shows of all time - so I was all over it. Scully alone in her little boat in the middle of a lake, a mysterious Nurse Owens who doesn’t exist, and a visit from Ghost Dad. Plus, more hints of alien DNA and government conspiracies. On board!
B: Finally, Scully is back, even if she spends most of the episode in a mind-purgatory-coma-boat. This was a slow-burning mythology-heavy episode, so Zara was really into it.
I enjoyed the scenes with Fox and Scully’s new age sister with lots of fake romantic subtext. They were apparently thinking of making her Mulder’s new love interest, but surprise, the audience was pretty against this idea. We also get a scene with Frohike in a suit and Mulder holding the Cigarette Man at gunpoint in his crummy apartment, which was a highlight.
The best part of the episode is when Skinner reveals why he has a soft spot for the X-Files after Mulder says he is resigning and he turns him down. In Vietnam, Skinner had an out-of-body experience, so even if he is hard on them, he is on their side.
Overall this is a pretty strong episode that adds some glue to the over-all narrative, but due to the lack of aliens, no real Mulder and Scully team dynamic, and a slower pace, I wasn’t as into it as Zara was.
Z: 9 sad, little boats out of 10
B: 6.5 ghost nurses out of 10
After sitting on it, Captain America 2 is nearly on equal-ground with The Avengers - easily better than all other Marvel movies. Not only is it a load of fun, they could totally strip out the super-heroness of it and the plot would be just as enjoyable and interesting.
THIS is what happens when you finally get out of origin-story land and start using these characters the way they have been used for decades. Even if you haven’t seen a single Marvel movie, even if you don’t like comic book movies, see this movie.
Ghost Tour of the West Village with @zarafs! The most haunted restaurant in the city, haunted by Vice-President Aaron Burr, who if you have seen our episode about him, you know was a real jerk. This apparently continued in death. (at One if by Land, Two if by Sea)
