THIS WEEK: Mulder and Scully try to look on the bright side of the start of season two of Cyborg Soldier. They fail miserably. In addition: The universe is so determined to make Jet Link wrong about everything it warps reality and distorts his own teammates’ personalities; aliens are responsible for the Nazca lines; G-Junior fights the planet about as hard as the gang want to fight the writers; a sworn enemy of the podcast makes a surprise return; Van and Sven don’t know how to categorize big cats; they try to pronounce things right for once; and Sven finally nails the bit.
