This week on Alcohollywood, Jared and Clint discuss the 2008 attempted revival of the sci-fi favorite The X-Files – The X-Files: I Want to Believe! Follow Mulder and Scully as they get back in the saddle again. Jared thinks it’s a beautifully-shot, deeply thematic character piece; Clint thinks it’s a boring, wasted opportunity to revive a brilliant science fiction show by downplaying the paranormal in favor of a half-baked serial killer thriller. What do you want to believe? Pour yourself a drink and take a listen!
