The Televerse #127- The X-Files with Todd VanDerWerff

Between the State of the Union address and the Super Bowl, a lot of television took the night off, making things a bit more manageable this week on the podcast. First we look over a handful of comedies, including the underseen Broad City and Looking, and then we tackle the hour-longs, including the finales of American Horror Story Coven and Sherlock. Then we head over to the DVD Shelf with returning guest Todd VanDerWerff of The A.V. Club and TV on the Internet to discuss the cult sensation that is still somehow underrated, The X-Files.

Downton Abbey 4.05 squanders a chance to say something about race but is generous with its witty writing and characterizations
