    Summary

    First time around, I found this episode flawed but intriguing.

    This time around I hate it with the white-hot fire of a thousand suns.

    The teen rating is for language. There's some profanity.

    Summary

    So, in the second half of Season Six, there’s a lot of crap. But there are two episodes that stand out to me like beautiful if slightly tarnished gems: “Monday” and “Arcadia.”

    Let’s talk about “Monday.” If I start in on “Arcadia” it might get long.

    Summary

    In which I talk about how, although the actual case in "Tithonus" is not that gripping, the episode is better because it uses the "taking Mulder and SCully off the X-Files" premise of Season 6 to do some really interesting character work with Mulder and Scully.

    Summary

    In which I use IMDB to answer the question, "Why does Season 6, after such a strong start, suck as hard as it does in the second half?"

    Summary

    In which, while talking about what this episode suggests about the darker side of the Mulder/Scully partnership, I cannot stop myself from going on a few little rants, chiefly about the persistent depiction of the single life as a lonely and empty wasteland full of isolation and despair.

    Summary

    In which I finally put my finger on something that has always creeped me out about the otherwise very enjoyable X-Files ep "Small Potatoes," in which a guy who has the ability to alter his face impersonates Mulder and almost makes out with Scully.

    Summary

    Prompt: There are many magical means of transportation for witches and wizards: Portkeys; Apparition; broomstick; Knight Bus, among others. By comparison, how efficient is the Hogwarts Express for transporting students from all around Britain to Scotland? Why might children from Ireland, such as Seamus Finnegan, travel clear to King's Cross Station only to be taken north again?

    Summary

    This week we take a step to the right, away from academic discussions of fandom, to look at Janice Radway's classic ethnographic study of romance novel readers, Reading the Romance: Women, Patriarchy, and Popular Literature. This text is continuously referenced in fan studies, with very good reason we think, now that we've read it. Please come and settle in for Episode 6! PLEASE NOTE - We do talk about the place of rape in romance stories in this podcast.

    This was recorded quite a while ago now, but we do hope to have something to offer you in the not toooooo distant future.

    Also, please enjoy this episode's recs! Some of us tried to pick something that fit into the discussion themes, with varying levels of success, but they are all excellent stories and we hope you enjoy them regardless!
