New Podcast! The X-Cast X-Files Podwatch – Episode #52 (The Post-Modern Prometheus/Christmas Carol)

I’m thrilled to be a part of The X-Cast X-Files Podwatch, a daily snippet podcast rewatching the entirety of The X-Files between now and the launch of the new season. It is something of a spin-off of The X-Cast, a great X-Files podcast run by the charming Tony Black. Tony has assembled a fantastic array of guests and hosts to go through The X-Files episode-by-episodes. With the new season announced to be starting in early January, Tony’s doing two episodes of the podcast per day, so buckle up. It’s going to be fun.

And I’m reteaming with Tony Black for a sequel to the last episode, albeit with decidedly more mixed results. We’re covering the episodes The Post-Modern Prometheus and Christmas Carol, both interesting and significantly flawed episodes. I admire The Post-Modern Prometheus, but can’t quite love it, for reasons I’ve articulated on this blog. Similarly, Christmas Carol is an episode is interesting and odd, but suffers from being an episode setting up one of the worst hours in the entire run of the show.
