Welcome to Rethinking The X-Files. Elton McManus and Scott Copperman get back together much in the same way Fox Mulder and Dana Scully do to look over and investigate the return of one of the most influential television shows of all time, The X-Files.
Rethinking The X-Files is an accompaniment to the new series of The X-Files so you should really watch the episodes before you listen as there will be spoilers. You have been warned.
Back in 2008 both Elton and Scott had caught the bug to start podcasting. Scott reached out on a forum they both frequented and An Apotheosis of a Bombast was born, the first episode being released January ’09. During the banter before and afterward, the guys would chat about the ABC show LOST, being die hard fans talk got around recording a second show. Rethinking LOST was created in June ’09.
Rethinking LOST came to an almost natural ending in August ’10 after the show had aired its final episode. The show had clocked up 44 episodes. Bombast continued until June ’12 but after 103 episodes time was becoming restricted and the show closed its doors unexpectedly.
’12 – Present Day
Elton continued podcasting with Shonky Lab and Grand Prix Podcast until he was lucky enough to join the ranks of The Black Dog Podcast and Witless for the Defence where he spends his time analysing movies for better or worse.
