Does your favorite TV show have an episode that was notable for being banned from being re-run because of it's content?

For Stella Cheeks, it's the Star Trek TOS episode "Plato's Stepchildren" and for Erin Cline, it's the X-Files episode "Home."

Will the X-Trekkers flee in the face of these icky, creepy, and shocking episodes like so many network TV censors, or will the Spooky 30's prevail? (Spoilers: We got this.) 


Also, note the content warning at the beginning! Please take care of yourself! 


About the podcast:

Erin Cline and Stella Cheeks have been friends for over a decade but have never seen each other's favorite TV show. Seeking to rectify that grievous error (seriously, they used to live together), X-Treks was born! Each week the duo choose one episode from Star Trek: The Original Series and one episode from The X-Files that fits a previously chosen cinematic theme, watch them together, and share their feelings! Alongside producer Bobby Hoffman, they discuss their first impressions, how the episodes fit into the larger fan lore, and fascinating behind the scenes facts.
