How 'The X-Files Files,' 'Mission Log,' and 'Go Bayside!' Are Introducing a New, Long-Overdue Breed of TV Critic

The recent launch of The X-Files Files, Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani's second comedy podcast, was both unsurprising and surprising. Fans of Nanjiani's standup act who follow his Twitter feed – one of the most consistently funny feeds written by a standup – have known of Nanjiani's genuine love for The X-Files because of his tweets about the 1993-2002 sci-fi classic ("The single greatest television show ever made. For the first 6 seasons."), so that's not the surprising part.
