The X-Files

We begin “GateSlashers II: I Want to Believe” with an episode about The X-Files hosted by Dan Hernandez and Dan McMahon!

After the climatic events of last year’s GateSlashers, we’re back with another four spine-chilling episodes about four horror properties you may want to check out. Dan calls upon Jake to investigate a mystery that they both thought had been buried in the finale of last year’s events. Some things don’t stay buried, and they’re going to need some classified government documents and a Chevy Impala to finally hunt down their greatest foe. I hope you’re ready because GateSlashers II: I Want to Believe begins here with The X-Files

We’re kicking this year off with one of the biggest horror television shows of all time, The X-Files. Join Dan Hernandez and Dan McMahon as they dig into the essential monster of the week show. You may know Dan as the co-writer of Pokemon: Detective PikachuThe Addams Family 2, and the upcoming Hulu series Koala Man. But to us, he’s just the newest GateCrasher in our first OnlyDans episode.

The X-Files follows agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) as they investigate the FBI’s most paranormal and fringe cases known as the X-Files. The series redefined horror television as it became one of the biggest shows of all time with two spin-offs and two motion pictures in the span of its 11 seasons.

Dan H. teaches Dan about the community of The X-Files, who refer to themselves as X-Philes, as Dan recalls. The two dig deep into some of the series’ mysteries. Dan M. talks about his love for the Smoking Man and his whole aesthetic. 

Dan H. also recalls what the internet was like during the time of The X-Files television run and how the community was split about if Mulder and Scully should end up together. Dan M. feels like a baby when Dan has to explain the different forums he used in his youth to talk about the show.
