Episode 101: The X-Files Season 10: Original Order

10/13 is a special date for fans of The X-Files. For those not in the know, its the birthday of creator Chris Carter, and the name of his production company (“I made this!”).

On this special day, Alaia is joined by two of her best X-Files loving friends, Faiza and Justin, to discuss Season 10 – with a twist. The series order was rearranged before the episodes aired. Before recording, the trio watched in the originally intended order.

You’ll learn how these three friends found the show and get insights into what impact watching S10 in the original order had (hint, its better).

Episode 91: Honoring Legends

 We take a moment to honor the lives of David Bowie and DJ Zin. Thanks to Alaia, we learned that the Golden Globes and People’s Choice awards were both lackluster. Channing Tatum showed us that he runs the world while Jenna Dewan-Tatum hops on her pony on Lip Sync Battle. Alaia finished up Making a Murderer last week so you know the ladies had to dive in to discuss their thoughts.
