‘The Fall: Series 3′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

In some ways, it is surprising that the third series of The Fall was made, especially with Jamie Dornan filming the 50 Shades of Grey movies. The second series ended in such a way that it could have been a good way to end, but that would have missed out on a much darker way to […]

‘The X-Files 10×06: My Struggle II’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“You don’t want to believe.” A chunky, inelegant piece of opening exposition plays us in and serves to highlight the fact that there was virtually nothing between season 10′s finale and premiere that was of any consequence to either. Excusable, maybe, in a procedural content to hum along indefinitely, but grueling in an episode of television […]

‘The X-Files 10×05: Babylon’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I am getting a taste of what Agent Scully must suffer.” Boy, this season is one wild ride. Ups and downs have abounded and here on the precipice of its foreshortened run there’s still no clear thrust as to where it’s all heading and why any of it was dragged up from cold storage for […]

‘The X-Files 10×04: Home Again’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE” ‘Home Again’ is a parable about how we deal with our garbage. It births this metaphor via a gooey canal, giving us a garbage golem who kills to protect the homeless, or at least to punish those who oppress them, and a bluntly mirrored plot centered on Scully’s struggle to accept her […]

‘The X-Files 10×03: Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

 “It’s a reminder that no matter how overwhelming our anxieties might be, they will soon be resolved when we are dead and buried for all eternity.” Thus does the preposterously Teutonic psychiatrist prescribe a walk in the graveyard as a cure for life’s angst. Even life’s most terrifying and mysterious questions, he asserts, have answers. […]

‘The X-Files 10×02: Founder’s Mutation’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Note the letter-opener sticking out of his head.” ‘Founder’s Mutation,’ a much stronger episode than last night’s The X-Files premiere, finds a balance between mythology and the human condition and then hums along in that sweet spot. If the story of an egotistical scientist conducting experiments on his own children is perhaps a little shopworn in the […]

‘The X-Files 10×01: My Struggle, Part 1′ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“If I’m putting my ass out there, I need to know it’s hanging by more than just a very slender thread.” After eight years of radio silence, the number stations are spinning back up. Returning to the air with the inauspiciously-named ‘My Struggle,’ The X-Files manages to wed frenetic pacing and herky editing to David Duchovny’s affectless […]

‘Hannibal 3×01: Antipasto’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“This is posthumous.” The world in which Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal unfolds with dreadful inexorability is one of dreamlike, deathly unreality. Hannibal himself has been a psychopomp, a guide into the world of the dead, for many characters throughout the series’ run. His motives, to be sure, are never selfless, but on multiple occasions he has shepherded enemies, colleagues, […]
