Baconsale Episode 41: Buffy vs. X-Files

Prepare yourselves for a 90s sci-fi flashback on this episode of Baconsale! Kent teams up with the Scoobies and has chosen Buffy the Vampire Slayer as his champion. While Joel tries to open everyone’s eyes to the truth that The X-Files is the superior television show, despite what the government might tell you.

Pick a side! It’s vampires versus aliens, demons versus conspiracies and mini skirts versus pantsuits in this small screen showdown!

    This is not even close – X-Files.

    Buffy. Witty, moving, inspiring, and actually finished decently strong.

    I never watched Buffy. Didn’t even know about Scoobies. X-Files all the way!

      However, I have no plans to watch the miniseries.

        I’m too busy with other things. I don’t have much time for tv watching these days, and X-Files isn’t something that excites me. (Buffy excites me even less).

    What do you have against Big Bang Theory? I enjoyed the series. I can’t watch it now because they don’t stream on Netflix or Hulu, but I’d pick the series up again if it did. I never watched Community. Maybe I’d like it, but it never intrigued me.

    Kent’s letting his teenage girl show a little bit. Funny that Kent mentions how he like Skinner… I did too in high school, but after re-watching the series, I really feel that Mitch Pileggi (Skinner) is a TERRIBLE actor and could only hang with the likes of the CW crew.

      now I feel bad… I may may give Buffy a chance someday. Oh, and the Lone Gunman are the other three terrible actors on the show.

        And don’t feel bad, Kent doesn’t have feelings.

      Skinner is a good actor when he’s in his comfort zone, which is the whisper-grumbling at Mulder and Scully behind a desk. Anything beyond that is a stretch for him.

    Speaking of theme songs and cultural influence of the shows, you have not mentioned (or at least not yet, still not done listening) the fact that Downton Abbey uses the X-Files theme song.

      Ha! I never noticed that before, but there are definitely some similarities.

    Still not convinced to watch Buffy. X-Files wins!
