[Podcasts] Discovering the X-Files: “Duane Berry”/”Ascension”

Ladies and gentlemen, we have our first two-parter! From here on out, whenever we come to a multi-episode tale, we will cover it as one giant story, be it a two-parter or a three-parter. While I will continue to list the credits below as usual, I will only list the synopsis for the first episode of the bunch so as to avoid spoilers for those who haven’t seen them yet.

With that out of the way, there’s a whole lot to love here. Not only do we have a superb turn by the ever-intense Steve Railsback (Helter Skelter, Lifeforce), but the stakes for the mythology arc have never been higher up until this point in the series. Let’s get to it…
