Between us, Josh Modell, Nathan Rabin, and I cover the gamut from X-Files fanatic to X-Files tyro. So we all went to see the new spin-off movie X-Files: I Want To Believe. (Not to be confused with the long-awaited PaRappa The Rapper movie Hey: I Gotta Believe!) Regardless of X-Files affiliation, we all had about the same reaction.

In deference to the incredible secrecy surrounding this movie, we went spoiler-free with the first few minutes of this podcast reaction, discussing where the show ended and how we felt about the film without covering the film's content at all. Then we got spoilery. Very, very spoilery. There's a warning before we get into it.
