DUCHOVNIACS EXCLUSIVE: David Duchovny interview with Walt & Laurice – New Album, Novel, #theXFiles MSR insights

Thank you to David Duchovny and all his team – we love you Brad & Kerry – for making this happen. Beyond flattered we had the time of our lives speaking with David about EVERY THIRD THOUGHT album and upcoming tour in Australia and New Zealand.

I was floored when David brought up me wearing the milk carton T-Shirt and preparing to stage dive into my arms…

THIS description of Miss Subways has me more eager than ever to read a Novel by David Duchovny. This sounds fascinating. So much more than I expected.

And finally, David’s insight into the discussion between David and Chris Carter working out the end of #XFplusone was a truly unexpected delight.

The X-Files Season 11 Mid-Season Trailer

A thrilling look at what’s to come this season on THE X-FILES

Wow! We’re ready for tonight’s episode!

Here’s our silly breakdown of the trailer play by play..


PLUS ONE To Show or NOT To Show THIS??? SHIPPERS!!! THAT??? #thexfiles #xfplusone #spoileralert

PLUS ONE leaves shipper fans some love but some unhappy we did not see the “dirty deed”. We have to give Chris Carter some credit. Whether you love or hate certain choices so far this season, every week we have had lots to talk about after each episode.

BUT FIRST Is William BILL Williamson a real person. “HE” has an IMDB page listed as Love Scene Supervisor with exclusive credits as


Start your day with a can of Dookie! “A mouthful of goodness.” (Artificially flavored.

PLUS ONE To Show or NOT To Show THAT???

Is Chris Carter watching a lot of South Park? There is that famous episode of South Park when the adults start eating in reverse, shoving food up the back side. But the only time the emit dookie form the mouth is when they talk religion.

Chris Carter has heard a lot of complaints over the years. Was this a Matt & Trey style message to fans? As if Chris is saying…

“You want NOOKIE, but all I give you now is DOOKIE!” lol

I am in love with Season 11!

Anything you read here is NOT attacking anyone. Merely making light conversation and observations and lots of speculations.


We never got titling for the location. I miss all those days when X-Files would say GERMANTOWN, GAITHERSBURG, ROCKVILLE, BETHESDA  and as a resident of the Washington DC Maryland suburbs think, when did Germantown start looking so urban with fire escapes, etc. We don’t learn till later that this is Hanover County (According to Mulder) and or neighboring Henrico County Virginia (Mulder & Scully meet Arky in the Henrico County jail according to the slate in later scene), just north of Richmond, VA.

Kudos to Chris Carter for using this cover of David Duchovny’s “Unsaid Undone”. At David’s shows this is always a highlight when fans get to go full head bob, and even shake some hips. THE ANGRY SONG perfectly lend itself to the more pop punk style and rave scene.

If you have not had the pleasure, this is exactly what a David Duchovny concert looks like, with X-Files and Californication fans getting wasted, slam dancing and stage dives. Just wait Australia and New Zealand, it’s party time! Starting Feb 20 2018 in Auckland, NZ MORE INFO CLICK HERE

Who is going to catch me from a stage dive? It took two band mates to get me on stage. However Colin and Nate survived. Aussies should be fine… lol

Back to the show… Jared Ager-Foster as Arkie Seavers (Mike’s son? – Growing Pains family? – a few speculated this is a shout out to Arkam – Batman) is the first of many casting triumphs in this episode. We all have known this kid in high school and college.



Doppelganger episode? Clever! I love how this season has become the Simpsons with a different opening sequence EVERY TIME!


Perhaps for the first time since 7th Season THIS felt like home. Mulder is back in the office convincing Scully there is an X-File to investigate worthy of a drive south on I-95.

This was like that first time a young college grad – now living in their own apartment in a strange city – visits their child home – the one you could not wait to get out of just 4-8 years before – and now you realize how much awesomeness you never appreciated before….

That is the X-Files device known as Mulder’s office. We took it for granted. We loved how they parodied this in BAD BLOOD. We think back to all those over head projector and slide shows and potential case files with Scully offering logic’s explanations.

Season 10 teased us with Skinner and Mulder and a few pencils that remained in the ceiling from over a decade before – a true testament to the strength of that dropped ceiling.

Mulder says it all as they “get back to our bread and butter”. Speaking about that “LOVE” SCENE.

Mulder & Scully interrogate the witness/victim

Again this feels familiar.
Mulder jumps to paranormal connections.
Scully nods as she hears proof of logical explanations.


While live tweeting the episode I immediately felt the need to give kudos to Karin Konoval (Mrs Peacock to X-Files fans – HOME). SO seeking out here twitter page I accidentally stumbled on to THIS and screamed


Karin Konoval’s performance surpasses Ann Dowd in Leftovers as she totally steals the show.

Image result for leftovers hbo ann dowd in well

Of course when we first see the can of “DOOKIE” I ask Laurice, is that cat food?”

But thought “Do Canadians actully eat S#!T out of a can?”

When we see Little Judy throwing DOOKIE like a monkey, I die laughing and begin thinking of the DOOKIE/NOOKIE line I wrote above.

We would like a couple rooms…

Let the shipping begin!

“We had a cancellation, it’s just a suite.” says the motel owner
“We’ll take it” jumps in the eager beaver Mulder
Look from Scully had many “layers:…
“There’s a pull out sofa” She has seen that look before

First of all, I want this pull out sofa – Not as fan collector crap – because it actually looks comfortable.

Who else expected a 2nd Dana when we see Fox lurking over Scully’s bed?
Just a little creepy is Mulder’s smile, watching Scully sleep, no?


What a tease…
Just the case calling…
Not the booty…


This trope never ends well for the inhabitant, especially when your cell mate is yourself. Psychological breakdown would be the best possible outcome.

Mulder reveals one could potentially hang oneself while hand cuffed.

The look from Scully takes me back to THIS and Mulder’s talent with cuffs.
Perhaps auto-erotic asphyxiation is not unknown to these two as well.

Mulder looks down the hall way to briefly reveal Karin as Little Chucky Poundstone. Not sure I would have caught that had I not scene Karin’s tweet merely  seconds before.



“You tapping that?”

Mulder quickly changes the subject.

Never mind the makeup and hair job to turn Karin into Judy then Chucky. Just watch Karin’s eyes. The character work is spectacular. I just keep watching this initial door scene. Then add Chucky’s walk and mannerisms. Can we get a prequel spin off called JUDY & CHUCKY?

Watching this exchange over and over is the only reason I noticed this…

Did anyone pick up on the continuity issue with Mulder’s door knocks. Mulder knocks 5 times buT theRE is a 6th knock sound that does not line up. Was that the Doppelganger?

YADA YADA YADA… Skipping the play by play lets get to the important stuff.

HANGMAN as a murder weapon has to be the most original concept of all time. Psychically linked twins are able to kill by filling in the the blanks of a hangman game with the victim’s name. Chucky seems to be the scout for victims.

But by the end Judy and Chucky are able to kill each other. So I assume they both have the same powers, HANGMAN is merely a gimmick for them to make killing more fun. Both appear to be able to send a demonic doppelganger or sorts, Or are the merely telepaths and telekinetic and the doppelganger is another way to make the sinister more playful?

Mulder totally freaks out when he sees himself. Ruining all after glow.

Scully, on the other hand, is chill, even though her other self totally likes to watch.

Is this because she has seen death omens in the back seat before, similar to end of Elegy. Perhaps Doppelgangers are like potential bullies, they just want someone to talk too.

Image result for elegy x-files car scully


It is now Scully’s turn to creep over Mulder’s bed. MAGIC THREE! (2 for Mulder)

SCULLY “Can you hold me?”




There has been a lot of talk about the next few minutes of television. I happen to love this conversation. First of all my expectation of any kind of physical scene or outcome was non existent after past 25 years of being  YOU KNOW WHAT AROUND by Chris Carter lol

So this conversation comes off as awkward. But lets peel back the layers.

SCULLY “It’s gonna happen… We’re gonna get old… retire…. are going to spend time together?”
Translation: I’m tired of fighting the future?

MULDER “I’ll come push your wheel chair, with my wheel chair”
Translation” we will grow old together.

MULDER: “I’ll always be around… offering bullet proof theories…”
SCULLY: “I will always be around to prove you wrong… promise”
Translation: Vows exchanged

yada yada yada
You could meet someone
Do you want kids?


SCULLY “I don’t have anyone to have (a baby) with even if I could…”
We are not together, together
Or is she asking ARE WE TOGETHER

The come the excuses – the world is going to hell,, partially at the hand of President Trump….

“We could lose our jobs”
Scully would be fine, ,going back to medicine, right?
Mulder could resurrect TLGM NEWS

Awkward pause

SCULLY “We’ll think of something”
SEX either solves all OR is perfect avoidance/diversion form tension

Pan to Doppelganger


Judy and Chucky are plotting the agent’s demise.

Mulder gets out of bed.

WAIT? Scully is on other side. That was some tossing and turning.

Mulder sees himself.

Running scared back to Dana, we notice Scully is longer dressed




Of course, is anyone hearing Chris Carter in their ear saying,
“That was Dana’s doppelganger in bed!”

Scully runs to Judy
Mulder heads to Chucky

!          !
!         O

_ U L _ _ _
_ _ U L _ _

Any one else have a MARTHA moment? (Batmen v Superman)


Now the music and tension feel a bit like the old Doppelganger episode.

Mulder wrestles his himself, while Scully talks her other self down.

Judy and Chucky turn on each other. Problem solved with little help from worst FBI agents ever lol


MULDER “If you need me, call me”
SCULLY :Can’t imagine if I will… but then again…it’s not out of the realm of extreme possiblity.”


THEN millions Philes light up a cig, even those that don’t smoke, to celebrate this Mad Men with more empowered women moment.


Of course wee don’t actually see the sex but more than ever we see Fox and Dana communicating with out words how they truly feel.

When Dana opens the door, she all but say “I LOVE YOU” (Or at least WANT)
Fox all but says “I KNOW!”

By not showing your mind gets to play. Your imagination should be on fire and able to fill in the gaps. Drama is all about the moment before the sex, kill, violence, etc. The actual act ends the tension. Old school writing, directing and acting ALWAYS left more to the imagination – not just because of censorship on TV and in the most puritanical times of American TV/FILM.

Sex scenes more often cheapen the drama. The sexual tension and “what if” moments are far more interesting the actual sex on camera. The characters “climax” along with the drama of the story.

Chris Carter, in m any ways, leaves a lot fo our imagination to fill in on purpose. Each one us therefore has a slightly different take away form the episode, season and complete series.


In many ways this episode, especially combined with the past two, has EVERYTHING we missed since season 7 as the x-files we fell in love with 25 years ago.

The office, the agents interrogating victims/suspects TOGETHER, conspiracy intrigue, questioning who to trust, and a lot more Skinner.

In some ways these three episode give us more fulfilling the long awaited romantic moments.

I am only saddened that possibly we only have 7 hours of great TV left. EVER?

It is like finally finding the one thing you have always wanted to only lose it moments later.

But for now I will live and cherish every moment.



Did you see my tweet about this?

GLEN MORGAN is a genius and why THIS may be scariest #thexfiles episode ever!

Glen Morgan is a genius.

While we were gushing over Mulder Scully romantic comedy intertwined with the Ramones soundtrack to Mulder’s (and Scully’s???) Unremarkable House becoming the OK Corral many of us glossed over the true horror of THIS.

GLEN MORGAN is a genius and why THIS may be scariest #thexfiles episode ever!

Wait Fraiser @waltfrasier

This morning I was about to tweet how 25 degree weather in Texas could make a lot of ignorant Trump suppprters argue against global warming. This led to me thinking about rich and powerful selfishly lying about science and fake news to keep their profits and power. This thinking soon came back to the X-Files episode of form last week, THIS, penned by Glen Morgan.

Behind all of the Razzle Dazzle, and ad libs about TAINT and ALIEN BUTT HOLES, was a story about the rich and powerful creating an eternal existence for their consciousness in the digital world that will live long after the destruction of our planet via global warming aliens or whatever method.

Matrix to be Reloaded in X-Files

Imprisoned inside this Matrix are the greatest minds of our time enslaved to keep everything working while the sick and powerful forevermore live out their fantasies.

These powerful players have already given up on our planet. They stopled trying to fix the horrors that they have created and instead of facing Justice I found a way to even beat Death while when the world ends.

We swallow it up whole

We are on the edge of our seats as our beloved Heroes are pinned down by mercenaries in their own home, and the cemetery at the University and even government facilities.

In a Way Glen Morgan has hidden the true horror of this episode in the same way the rich and powerful hide their true crimes against humanity and the earth itself with lies and fake news. We’re looking over here on the left, distracted with all this action and romantic comedy, while Glen slides in this absolutely horrible scenario of the impending end of the world.

Season 11 Doomsday?

Combine THIS with MY STRUGGLE 3 and all we have is few rich and powerful faction fighting behind the scenes for how to save the smallest percentage of humanity who’s going to control what is left in their wake of destruction.

We are no longer talking about saving the world. Those that we trust with our lives and our livelihoods and our votes are no longer trying to fix their problems. The rich and powerful are a hundred percent trying trying to save their own asses from the horrors that they created.

Too close to home?

When you peel back the layers of this episode, you reveal Horrors that are just way too close to home and I now see this whole episode in a new light, or should I say dark.


The X-Files Mad Libs via DEEP STATE – Feb 6 Release Date

Have you played The X-Files Mad Libs via DEEP STATE Feb 6 Release Date

January 3

Season 11 to start airing Monday January 3, 2018 on FOX

Ok, I need to cut back on coffee. But the second I heard we have a date I got excited. My biggest fear was that the release date would happen while we are in Australia with David.

SIDE NOTE: I had an audition for major role on 9-1-1 SMALL WORLD! I read for a scene with Peter Krause and Angela Bassett bragging about a hot new girl friend. First series regular audition. Fun experience.


Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) return as iconic FBI agents. Mitch Pileggi also returns as FBI Asst. Director Walter Skinner. Additionally, the new season will feature guest star turns from Annabeth Gish, Robbie Amell, Lauren Ambrose, Karin Konoval, Barbara Hershey, Haley Joel Osment and William B. Davis, aka “Cigarette Smoking Man.”

Bucky Fucking Dent the Movie David Duchovny

BUCKY FUCKING DENT THE MOVIE and a Little Duchovniac Secret

Tuesday October 17, 2017 10am Vancouver time. 1pm New York time.

One hour into my flight, listening to Bucky Fucking Dent via audible books. The sound of David Duchovny’s voice enhances the story.

Bucky Fucking Dent

I struggle to stay focused. Every few seconds a beverage cart or passenger in full pee pee walk bumps the elbow.

I hear the chapter when Marty is trying to suck the demons out of young Ted. In my mind I am casting the movie. Danny Boyle and Alex Karas? Odd pairing but I see/hear them in the characters.

My mind wanders to a truth I have shared with few. We have gathered a subset of diehard X-Files fans, with a few diehard Californication fans, with a few that love all the name sake of this blog kicks out. I like the movie DIEHARD.  Now a few of us are jet setting around the world to hear this guy sing?

What I really want, more than anything, is BUCKY FUCKING DENT The Movie.

I have known this project to be in the works for weeks but I was told by a little birdie (or puppy, was it not Brick) that the cat is out of the bag.

My wife keeps telling me I could play Ted. He’s overweight. I’m a bit beyond ‘Hollywood fat’ right now and into second banana range so I would never even ask for an audition. Perhaps for the avant garde live action of Holy Cow, I could play Shalom. I am losing weight for the 50 hours of air travel round trip to Australia in February, so maybe…

My mind wanders further.

Is David Duchovny the first to have ACTOR as his day job while pursuing his art?

While music is his passion project, to me, becoming a writer/director seems to be his true calling.

We only have a few gems to base this statement, but how many out there consider The  UNNATURAL one of the best X-Files episodes ever? (Not just for the Mulder / Scully shippy moments at the end.)

To top that here is my little secret. HOUSE OF D is one of my favorite movies of all time. HOUSE OF D is when I became a Duchovniac. (Holy crap I am tearing up editing this blog now – through consciousness side bar notes as editor a first? WTF)

In truth a diehard X-Files fan, I was never a Phile. As a diehard Star Wars and Star Trek fan I was never truly a fanboy or trekkie. I mean I never gave a crap about fandom activities, stars outside of their projects, comic cons, meet & greets, etc.

I respect the craft and finished product and have no desire to know artists as anything but real people should I be so lucky to meet and befriend. I certainly had no desire to create false realities or fantasies about what artists might really be like. Perhaps as an artist I respect the veil of reality and performance more than most. I DETEST online gossip about artists, other fans etc. Most of you have heard or read my thoughts on these abhorrent activities.

That whole world to me destroys movie magic. I can still enjoy a Tom Cruise movie by not thinking about his nutty links to Scientology. (Travolta affected reality acting makes it harder outside of musical projects.) I can still palate Mel Gibson and others. I can even sit through an old episode of Cosby until the first commercial. And if we were to boycott every project Harvey Weinstein or a certain Trump cabinet member, my video library would be near empty.


HOUSE OF D is the first time I met David. My wife had attended a few screenings of the movie at Sony Lincoln Center. Laurice was there for a Q&A I believe. I happened to tag along one of the times David was allowing photos and signatures after. I offered David a couple tickets to our Comedy Show. They have yet to be redeemed, but I don’t take it personally. They expired years ago but we would still honor them this weekend. Or next… Or…. I digress…

Meeting David was special. He was incredibly humbled that folks came to see his movie. As with the music now, most were there as X-Files fans first.

This was the day I became a Duchovniac, even though the term was not coined until 2015, and in many ways, I just recently realize this fact fully.

HOUSE OF D is very stirring in a very simplistic way. If you know anything about acting, directing and producing, apparent simple qualities take a huge amount of thought and preparation. Minimalistic theater requires far more from the performing artist to tell the story. Broad stokes paint a clearer picture but subtle complexities take craft. There is nothing simple about appearing simple on stage or screen.

Narrating the opening sequence brings X-Files fans into a familiar world of hearing David’s voice launch a story.

Telling the story through the eyes of two children –a young teen (Anton Chechin) and the child-like mentally challenged friend (Robin Williams)– allows us to enter the world of downtown Manhattan the way we enter the underwater world of Little Mermaid. We relax our minds. Seeing preteens giggle and playing stick ball and making fun of their French teacher and fearing the priest’s wrath and various forms of interaction with girls all lower our guards.

HOUSE OF D has the sweetest on camera scene between a convicted woman and a teen learning to dance. All the scenes between Erica and Anton are riveting. Levels of slowly fading nuanced sweetness with growing despair as each scene progresses. These scenes pit a boy who is relatively naïve – despite dealing with the loss of a father and the failing health of his mother –  against a woman who perhaps has seen more than any human should have to endure at any age. Is she a hooker, drug addict and murderer? There is so much going on that is not said or shown. If you have ever studied circumstances as an actor (Stanislovsky and most of the NY schools in realism) you can only imagine all the back story not in the script. SUBTEXT!!!

As the story reveals more of the darkness these children’s lives the walls are down.  Consequently, the tears flow. When the mother, so amazing underplayed (as brash New Yorkers go) by Tea Leoni, drops her hand limp, the heart fully drops from the chest.

As the flip book story suggests the movie comes full circle, with David playing the grown-up Anton, now with wife and child of his own. All worked out. We can survive tragedy. We can find hope in the worst loss. We can find love out of the darkest places.

Of course, now, thinking of this movie brings additional tears thinking of Anton and Robin PAP ASSS!!!

That is the best part of any quality artistic creation. Time and Circumstance change how we approach the work. Ah, Circumstance (Is my pseudo-method-actor-self sneaking into this blog too much?)

I know many of you have as well. I hope that someone besides Philes that have already seen HOUSE OD D reads this blog and gives the movie a shot. If for nothing else you are missing a very special Robin Williams performance.

I have been waiting for another “written and directed by David Duchovny” film or TV project for 10 years now. Ever since I was told – and sworn to secrecy – about this next big project, I have been a kid on Christmas morning.

We are beyond hope now and into eager anticipation mode. You read my blog about your music in 2015. I hope you get a chance to read this.

HOUSE OF D was the spiritual beginning of the Duchovniacs. Please give us more. Your style is so sweet and endearing without pulling punches on the drama. A modern Elia Kazan and Arthur Miller in one with less a tad less ire. Your characters’ spines have less hate for this world but they are no less real. Perhaps more so.

Two hours into our flight home to New York. Just passed Leech Lake (19km SW of us now) according to map. Back to BUCKING FUCKING DENT on tape.

Unremarkable House, Duane Barry, Laughing Buddha, Alien Train

Unremarkable House, Duane Barry, Laughing Buddha, Alien Train – DAY THREE Duchovniacs Field Trip Vancouver edition…


Happy 10/13 Birthday to Chris Carter & Mulder

Today was a wild goose chase on some levels with some amazing pay offs around the outskirts of Vancouver and a few downtown. Of course we mostly stayed off Twitter today to support . Not sure if it did any good because I did not even look all day.

The day started with a drive east to the unremarkable house.

An unremarkable house #thexfiles

A post shared by Walt Frasier (@waltfrasier) on

We tried to find a way in but NO TRESPASSING signs and some intense fencing and moist swamps warded most of us away and snapping photos from afar.

Two of us got a little closer

But apparently the TWO occupants don’t like unannounced visitors.

After a short coffee break we were off Riverview Hospital. Which we are renaming DUCHOVNIACS HEADQUARTERS. This place is great. You really feel the presence of something dirty, or perhaps demonic. Mostly just screaming for a wrecking ball, if not for the many TV/FILM crews filming.

Unfortunately the lake, in fact the entire park, was closed. Single tear from two mini vans with 13ppl combined. We all shared that same tear.

The actual lake is called Buntzen Lake which is in Port Moody, just a few kilometers off David Ave. Starting to sense a pattern.

At least this time camping out for a great spot, we will fit right in with all the locals sleeping on the streets nearby. (No pictures of homeless here, but this area is rough, and a bit depressed).

PS Reason the laugh on Skinner is due to this gem from earlier and the fact we are all very giggly tired.


Trust Karen and our reactions this is a must do thing in Vancouver this month. The production value was great. With 15 X-PHILES in tow, this was the week’s highlight so far.

Of course it was so cold no one saw my shirt today.

By the end of the day we were a caravan of three mini vans and SUVs with 16 PHILES / DUCHOVNIACS enjoying a very full day of THE X-FILES and VANCOUVER tourist stops. Guess what tomorrow is!

SHOOK AF after watching NYCC 2018 X-Files Trailer

SHOOK AF after watching NYCC 2018 X-Files Trailer

FIRST OF ALL I’m a bit emotional this morning after hosting such an amazing event last night. Thank you to all that came out and joined us as we hosted Mitch Pileggi and raised over $1000 for NO KID HUNGRY. Mitch is amazing on screen and in person in every thing he does and did more than anyone would expect to make every single guest feel warm and welcome. I will have an entire post for that. I had intended to write that this morning but I’m having a moment…

SHOOK AF after watching NYCC 2018 X-Files Trailer

SO I perhaps play coy with MSR but judging the happy tears as I hear “Kissing Close” I suppose I am officially a shipper.

Or perhaps I’m just back in that place I always go when my favorites projects of my youth come back to tease us and reward us for our loyalty over the years.

I have similar feelings for Star Wars and Justice League movies coming out in the next few months, but at some point The X-Files, the go-to show of my 20s, surpassed the childhood loves, winning  first place in my heart.

I am sure this has something to do with getting to know David and now Mitch, and freaking out Gillian in Chicago. It also perhaps something to do that so many of the shows I watch these days exist at the creative hands of X-Files Alumni, Homeland, 24, Supernatural, Breaking Bad & Saul, Man in the High Castle and Medici… and now I find out LORE is a Glen Morgan Project.  The scope of the project extends far passed its core presence.

So waking up this morning I finally saw the trailer everyone was talking about last night. With a passionate hate for NYCC (bless all of you that dealt with that line yesterday, but my fat ass is done with that) I missed the panel. As I type this blog I am listening to the panel via youtube and every few seconds that welping tears of joy emotional response is stirs. HANUKKAH GELT – Good one David…. (He just said that in this moment as I type – can this be anymore stream of consciousness. And this is why I love David’s books. YADA YADA YADA ah the 1990s…)



I am blown away by this trailer. There are so many little gems that tug at the X-Files FanDome heart strings. Even the graphic of FOX becoming X got me. I’m an emotional wreck.

Is Scully going to die?

Is Skinner going to the dark side?

Are the Lone Gun Men alive or did they just upload their consciousness to the dark web?

Is Mad Men era CSM offering alien dinner before lighting up a cigarette?

SO MANY QUESTIONS… I think we need Special Agent CLIFF HANGER for this one (Another good one David. He cracks me up. See you in Vancouver in  about 135 hours)

And thank you Chris Carter for heading my cries for MORE SKINNER. That looks promising.

My only fear, except another gem from Darin Morgan, is that this is all just Eps 1 and 10 and in between anything goes. I don’t think I can handle another Babylon.

But clearly that one hiccup did not change my resolve and dedication to the cause.

See you in 2018!

And coming soon my evening with Mitch Pileggi…
