    Because we've maybe (maybe) exhausted talking about Twin Peaks for a bit and you're likely looking for something new or nostalgic to binge, listen in as we take you into another world of fog and Duchovony (minus the panty hoes in this role). In this episode (recorded before the pandemic - ah how young and naïve we were!) each of us gives you an episode of the X-Files that we love that is stand alone and will allow you to dive into this binge worthy and weird in just the right way series. If you like the three we suggest try tackling all 209 episodes. It should keep you busy for a weekend. Meanwhile... the truth is out there ;) Here are the episodes we chose: Melissa - "Irresistible" Season 2, Episode 13 Pat - "Humbug" Season 2, Episode 20 Kelly - "The Post-Modern Prometheus" Season 5, Episode 5

    Years have passed! We might all be in the Dark Lodge (we don't know). And Pat, Melissa, and I have barely, barely grown as people. In fact the first thing on our Shelter in Place agenda: -Twin Peaks Pilot Redux Are we George Lucasing? NO! But our pilot did not have our Dark Queen of Sass, Melissa (who let's face it, this journey is really about). We're righting that wrong and adding in an Oregonian Sprite named Alyssa who has a LOT of theories. Meanwhile...
