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.

Hello, boils and ghouls! In this month’s episode of TV Good Sleep Bad, Elwood and I take a look at the HBO classic Taaaaaaales from the Crypt (and admit it, you heard the Cryptkeeper’s voice in your head when you read that).

In this episode, we discuss:
Tales from the Crypt 6.13, “Comes the Dawn” (1995): Michael Ironside goes to Alaska to poach a grizzly. Hilarity ensues.
Tales from the Cryptkeeper 1.01, “While the Cat’s Away” (1993): That’s right, Tales from the Crypt spawned a Saturday morning cartoon spinoff. In the pilot, two adolescents break into a house, looking for loot they can fence to buy a dirt bike. Hilarity ensues.
