Maddy and Ryan have a lot of great X-Men knowlege and point out a lot of details that would otherwise be missed. I highly recommend this podcast for anyone who, like me, grew up watching the X-Men animated series and is looking for a funny and entertaining podcast to listen to while revisiting the TV series.
The perfect podcast for a very specific niche
You know already if you're the kind of person who wants to listen to moment-by-moment breakdowns of the 90s X-Men animated series. If you, like me, are that kind of person, then you're going to thoroughly enjoy this podcast. Maddy and Ryan are great fun and have the easy rapport of old friends, as well as a clear love and knowledge of the source material. You might learn a thing or two (I had no idea my favorite arcade game ever was based on a terrible animated pilot), and that thing or two will be about the X-Men, as it should be.
My only complaint is that the podcast theme music, while excellent, does not sample the amazing theme music from the X-Men show.
Amazingly fun show with hosts who know what they're talking about. Every minute is so enjoyable! Not required to watch the episode beforehand, but it helps a bit.
Only complaint would be the exclusion of clips or music from the episodes. It's a lot of work but it makes it easier to follow along. Of course you probably might not want to worry about copyright issues ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
