The Biff Bam Pop! Podcast Network presents Gobbledygeek featuring hosts Paul Smith and AJ Wiley and focusing on a variety of entertainment subjects, with our hosts and special guests frequently discussing films, comics, and television.
This week, AJ and Paul are joined by special guest Wesley “Wezzo” Mead from across the pond to discuss “The X-Files” Season 1 in the first of a sporadic series on the cult classic show. See and hear more after the jump.
Episode 273 of Gobbledygeek is described here: “Paul and Arlo want to believe. They also don’t want to start yet another spin-off podcast, so this week marks the first of ten sporadic installments discussing Chris Carter’s seminal sci-fi series The X-Files. Joining them to discuss the first season is Wesley “Wezzo” Mead, who beams on over from the UK in his (presumably very British) spaceship. Paul talks about what it was like to watch The X-Files every week with the lights out, Wezzo recalls discovering the show as a young TV obsessive, and Arlo offers the perspective of someone watching the show for the very first time. The gang loves the mutual respect between Mulder and Scully, struggles with some very “freshman season” hours, and are in unanimous agreement on the season’s best episode. Plus, Arlo commits hate crimes against the English and there’s a spoiler-free discussion of Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book.” All this and more can be found right here.
