Just a quick post today. Did you watch the two-night premier of the new X-Files mini-series this week? If so, you’ll know that Joel McHale (Community, The Soup) is guest starring as right-wing talk show host Tad O’Malley in the series’ revival – a man seemingly as bent on exposing the truth as Fox Mulder.
And as both a Community and X-Files fan, there was an opportunity here that just couldn’t be missed…
It’s the x-over we’ve all been waiting for.
Scully may have just instigated the biggest interdepartmental war the FBI will ever see. Let’s hope Jeff/Tad brought the friendship hats.
- This makes little to no sense, go watch “Conspiracy Theories and Interior Designs”, and the later quasi-follow-up episodes “Digital Exploration of Interior Design” and “Pillows and Blankets“ of Community. You will not regret it.
- You haven’t watched “My Struggle” and “Founder’s Mutation” yet, what are you waiting for? I won’t dive into the episodes here (definitely need to rewatch, not to mention the countless versions of premier analysis already circulating the web) but I will say that my excitement over everything X-Files is going strong.
The hype was real, people.
I’m still geeking out about being able to watch the series live for the first time. Shout out to the many awesome XPhiles (#XPhileForLife!) out there on Twitter making the experience that much more fun (and commiserating when football delays the long awaited premier).
That’s it! Now go watch some X-Files and/or Community and share your own conspiracy theories and crossovers.
Thanks for reading, cheers! Until then…
