Episode 17: Duane Barry and Ascension

This week in episode 17 of your weekly Aussie X-Files chat, Kate is joined by our favourite kiwi Tracey to talk about the big season 2 arc Duane Barry and Ascension. The turning point for The X-Files mythology and the show itself, what will one of the mythology queens (Kate) and the non-mythology girl (Tracey) have to say about it?

Not to mention there is a lot of chat about our favourite Rat-boy Krycek, is he good? Is he bad? Is he just misunderstood? And as this is Tracey’s very first episode with our favourite boss-man, Skinner, she shares her story of meeting Mitch Pileggi.

All this and much-much more (including the weekly tie-watch!) tune in now!

Episode 16: Blood and Sleepless

Fears, phobias, media manipulation and government deception! This week in episode 16 of your favourite Aussie X-Files podcast, Kate and Col get a little bit serious as they talk Blood and Sleepless.

While the execution of these episodes failed to inspire a whole lot of love from the ladies, it was the issues tackled in each ep that got them talking. But don’t fret, it’s not all doom and gloom! It wouldn’t be a Filed Under X podcast without a mention of the weed whacker hair, ugly ties and an analysis of Scully’s locks.

Not to mention the first appearance of a certain much-loved Rat-boy which has Kate swooning as much as her unyielding love for Skinner.

All this and more! Tune in right now.

Episode 15: Little Green Men and The Host

Its episode 15 this week and we’re getting stuck into season 2! The X-Files is closed down, Mulder and Scully are separated and Mulder is being a ….bitch?!? Listen as Kate, and surprisingly enough, Hailey discuss whats going on with their favourite bad-tie-wearing Agent. And speaking of ties, listen out for the ladies talk about those ties who have become repeat offenders and a little tie swapping creates speculation over a pair of characters. There is also lots of Skinner love for both eps, a question of whatever happened to Senator Matheson and is Little Green Men really a mytharc episode?

Tune in for all this and more on your weekly Aussie X-Files chat!

Episode 13: Roland and The Erlenmeyer Flask

This week in your Aussie themed X-Files discussion, we are at the season 1 finale! Hailey and Kate talk Roland and The Erlenmeyer Flask. Hailey is sad that we’re already through the first season, Kate isnt so much, find out why!

Science, science, science! There’s lots of science in these two episodes and the ladies become frustrated with how its over-explained for the audience.

In Roland the ladies praise the work of Željko Ivanek and tell stories about liquid nitrogen. They try to figure out where Roland’s vision are coming from and what they mean.

With The Erlenmeyer Flask, the self dubbed Mythology Queens try to piece together the episode with where it fits into the series in the future. They question whether Deep Throat should have been a full time character and Kate has some interesting facts about how The X-Files almost came to an end after this episode.

There’s also lots of 90s nostalgia in this episode including video tabs, paper dolls and men the ladies crushed on as teenagers.

Its more exciting than an alien foetus!

Episode 12: Tooms and Born Again.

This week on your weekly Aussie chat about The X-Files, Skinner has arrived! Kate and Col (but lets face it, mostly just Kate) are thrilled to talk about the debut of the big bald beautiful man! Kate has facts about Skinner and both ladies have a story about meeting Mitch Pileggi in Melbourne.

However, as much as Kate would like it to be, this weeks episode isn’t just about Skinner. Also in the podcast they talk about the Tooms stake-out scene, is it in their top Mulder and Scully moments of all time? They discuss the confusion between canon and fanon and how Col constantly mixes up to the two. Eventually they get to Born Again which fails to generate any excitement between them. Is this the worst episode of season 1?

More fun than a creepy kid, we hope you enjoy episode 12!

Episode 11: Shapes and Darkness Falls

The weather comes into play in this weeks episode with Kate and Tracey. There’s rain, lots and lots of rain, and as they struggle to find some quality in Shapes, Kate thinks she has an idea what made Scully so cranky in the episode. Darkness Falls gets some more love from the ladies as they make comparisons to Ice, talk about conservation, and what can kill you when you go into the bush in Australia. Tracey also tries to get her first 10 out of 10 in the quiz, can she do it? Tune in right now to find out!

More fun than a trip to the forest, we hope you enjoy episode 11.

Episode 10: E.B.E and Miracle Man

In this weeks all new episode of your Aussie themed X-Files podcast, Kate & Hailey talk all things E.B.E and Miracle Man. While the ladies struggle with the second episode, its E.B.E that dominates the podcast. They talk about how privacy has changed from when this episode aired, how much they love The Lone Gunmen, offer some different opinions on Deep Throat and you’ll hear something you’ve never heard before, Kate defending Mulder!

More fun than a badly photoshopped alien visitation photo, we hope you enjoy this weeks episode of Filed Under X!

Episode 9: Lazarus and Young At Heart

In this weeks episode of your free weekly Aussie X-Files podcast, Col and Kate discuss Lazarus and Young At Heart. Two episodes the ladies have generally bland feelings about, but still managed an extensive chat. Did they stay on topic? Spoilers: Probably not. But while they did talk about the episodes, they also managed to get into a discussion about Scully’s fashion, her taste in men, her potential commitment issues and critiqued her apartment furnishings. Mulder does get a look in somewhere and you’ll find out what Kate really thought of him in these two episodes.

Its more fun than a salamander hand, we hope you enjoy this weeks installment of Filed Under X!

Episode 8: Beyond The Sea and Gender Bender

This week on your free, fun, fantastic Aussie (and Kiwi) themed chat about The X-Files our favourite kiwi Tracey is back!! We finally stopped talking to her with tin cans and a piece of string across the ditch! Now you can delight in hearing her accent as she discusses Beyond the Sea and Gender Bender with Kate. The ladies take a bit of a serious look the fantastic Scully episode and talk about the amazing acting, offer up some comparisons to Silence of The Lambs and debate if this is the best Scully episode of the series. When they get to Gender Bender, they take a nostaligic moment in memory of that great era called the 90s and spend a lot of time wondering who or what the kindred really are.
