PoCo: “Nobody Knows For Sure” … sure, like we're just in a X-Files episode.

 PoCo: Nobody Knows For Sure ... sure, like we're just in a X Files episode.

“We’re not alone in the Universe, but no one likes us”

As much as I liked The X-Files (but liked the Lone Gunmen better), this 11th season has the best writing, reminding us that Fox ‘Freaking’ Mulder was also an FBI agent —yes that same FBI of Bob Mueller that is apparently a secret society trying to overthrow the Trump Regime.

Heavens to Murgatroid, it’s an episode about Agent Orange

On April 20, 2017, Fox officially announced that The X-Files would be returning for an eleventh season of ten episodes,[173] which premiered on January 3, 2018.[174]

The Mengele Effect: ‘I have something in the political shame section’

If you’re an X-Files viewer who likes your Mulder a little goofy, your Scully a little put out and your callbacks to previous episodes plentiful, this week’s Darin Morgan-written and –directed hour is a bleepin’ dream.

“The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat” (Fox, Wednesday at 8/7c) takes the same irreverent tone as the producer’s previous X-Files eps, which include Season 3’s “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose” and “Jose Chung’s ‘From Outer Space’,” as well as last season’s “Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster.”

It examines the concept of The Mandela Effect — which happens when masses of people remember something differently from how it actually happened — and offers up a possible explanation for how the FBI’s current investigation of the unexplained came to be.

The Mandela Effect is a theory of parallel universes, based in the idea that because large groups of people have similar alternative memories about past events. Advocates of the theory claim that for these collective experiences to be true, the fabric of reality must have shifted at some point in the past, 

The hour includes a funny-though-biting examination of the fake news phenomenon, criticizing those who will believe something even in the absence of fact. Yet Morgan hesitated to draw too straight of a line between our current political climate and the sci-fi drama’s take on it. “I don’t know what to say. I have very strong views about it, and yet it’s difficult for me to do anything in a straight, serious vein,” he said, adding that humor often stops people who are opposed to an idea from rejecting it outright. “Whatever someone’s political stance is, what party they belong to, they will be able to watch the episode and appreciate what it’s actually trying to say [without] having too knee-jerk of a reaction.”
