'Face Off' Recap: 'Extraterrestrial Enterprise'

All photos courtesy Syfy. Qapla!

Meg continued her domination in Bottom Looks but Foundation Challenge immunity saved her, sending Libby home. We're boldly going to the Star Trek universe tonight with Jonathon Frakes and Michael Dorn y'all so let's do this.

It's Foundation Challenge time! Choose an alien landscape and use it as inspiration for a retro alien; a la 60s and 70s like "Land of the Lost" and "Star Trek." And to make sure you don't muck this up, your guest judge today is Michael Westmore! Winner gets immunity in the Spotlight Challenge so listen closely - you're aiming for the retro, campy vibe. You have two hours; good luck. What I like about Mr. Westmore is that he gives real, useful feedback and not empty platitudes of 'I like it.' You know, like a real judge or something.

TV Guide Makes a Video Highlighting Fox Mulder's Naughty Addiction

Mulder sure loved videos! But not as much as he loved Scully.
Any true X-Phile knows about Fox Mulder's penchant for porn and to pay homage, TV Guide published a video called "X-Files Supercut: Mulder's Porn Addiction!" Thanks, TV Guide! Here's a little bit of what they had to say about Foxy's second love...

The SIZL channel, phone sex hotlines, Celebrity Skin - The X-Files hero doesn't discriminate when it comes to his XXX entertainment. And whenever Mulder has a break from dismantling clandestine conspiracies and uncovering the truth about extraterrestrial life, you can bet your I Want to Believe poster he's spending it wrist-deep in porn.

Any whoooo...I wonder if he'll have the same interests in the new six-episode series that premieres Sunday, January 24 after the NFC Championship game and then continues on Monday the 25th in its normal time slot of 8 p.m. ET? See what I did there? I promoted the new series and then embedded the video for you below for your viewing...pleasure. Enjoy.

'The Strain' Recap: 'Intruders'

Eph vows vengeance on Palmer and Fet was replaced by Nikki in Dutch's...heart. Let's do this.

Demoing his new show, Dead Eye for the Vamp Guy, Eichhorst gives Kelly a makeover to allwo her to pass as human. A wig, a little contouring, a turtleneck for the turkey wattle and voila! Instant Mom. In other news, wig watch is back in force. I hope he sprung for the deluxe package with the acting class. Ten bucks says she'll still be a better parent than Eph.

Eph and Fet compare notes on who is undertaking the dumber plan: killing Palmer vs tracking a magic book for a spell to kill vampires. I don't know guys; it's kind of a toss up. So you know a guy? This is New York after all. Over at the Stoneheart group, Coco wakes up after taking Palmer's butter and we all gag. She feels safe there with him so she clearly deserves whatever fate has in store for her. Much to do though, like meeting with the Cardinal about the super sekkrit book, deal with Eichhorst whom she hates because he makes Palmer sad. She's on his side... and back ... and front...

'Face Off' Recap: 'The Gatekeepers'

All photos courtesy Syfy.

Brittany was sent off last time by a very sad McKenzie. Get your emotions in check, it's time for Face Off.

You know what we haven't had yet this season? A Foundation Challenge. Fortunately, McKenzie is here to rectify it with a road trip through the artists' subconscious via Rorshach ink blots. There's a guest judge tonight in Erin Krueger Mekash and the winner gets immunity in the Spotlight Challenge. I sure hope that it isn't a team challenge. All right everyone: Choose! Your! Inkblots!

Like practically every guest judge ever, Erin likes everything but the top looks for her were Jasmine and Meg with Meg picking up the win and immunity. After reserving a permanent spot for herself in the bottom looks, this is a welcome change. Try not to waste it.

'The Strain' Recap: 'The Born'

Photo courtesy

The Master got a brand new bag, Eph got more people killed, Dutch crawled out of her hole but Quinlan is in the house so let's do this.

Flashback! Setrakian tells the history of the Born who got his start as a gladiator and a vicious one at that. How he kept from eating those he vanquished I'll never know. The arena was his life until the Roman senator Sertorius, knowing all about the occult, decided to sponsor him. I may have watched too much 'Monty Python' as all I can hear when listening to them talk is Michael Palin saying 'Biggus Dickus.' Anyway, the gladiator accepts and is rechristened Quintus. Onward!

You know what is not great morning after pillow talk? Pining for your roommate/girlfriend when still unclothed from the previous evening's shenanigans. She needs to go have her passionately destructive relationships somewhere else and leave our man V alone, amirite ladies? Breaking into her apartment, they find Nikki hiding under the stairs and suddenly Fet finds himself odd man out. No worries V; you've got all of twitter ready to help you mend your broken...heart.
