TV Good Sleep Bad Podcast: The X-Files & Kolchak: The Nightstalker
Episode Description: It’s time once again for another episode of TV Good Sleep Bad! This month, to celebrate the return of The X-Files to our television screens, we examine not only an episode from the show’s creative peak but also an installment of one of its strongest influences. Featuring special guest Will from Exploding Helicopter.
In this episode, we discuss:
The X-Files 4.02, “Home” (1996): Mulder and Scully investigate a clan of hideously deformed inbred freaks, and yet somehow manage to slip in a reference to Babe.
Kolchak: The Night Stalker 1.03, “They Have Been, They Are, They Will Be…” (1974): Dead zoo animals, disappearing lead ingots, and the appearance of a strange tar-like substance distract the iconic reporter from something really important: the Cubs making the World Series.
Next month: Doctor Who (original series) and Japanese Spider-Man.
