The Bloom Files | The X-Files Season 4 Episodes 7 & 10: “Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man” &  “Paper Hearts”

The truth is out there. In here? Who knows. But we’re opening up “The Bloom Files” to find out.

This week, Mike (@AMikeBloomType) and Angela Bloom (@angpalaggi) recap two very different, yet dark episodes of The X-Files season 4. First, in “Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man,” they get into the supposed history of everyone’s favorite cancerous antagonist. And in “Paper Hearts,” Mulder revisits a perverted blast from the past to try and get some answers about his missing sister.

Next week “The Bloom Files” will be covering Season 4, Episode 14, “Memento Mori.”  Write in your feedback for those episodes to [email protected] or [email protected].

About The Bloom Files

Married couple Mike and Angela Bloom travel to the FBI basement to crack open The X-Files. Every week, the two cover a single or group of episodes of the influential sci-fi series starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, which Angela has seen many times, but Mike has never. They’ll bring their different perspectives to this first watch/rewatch of Mulder and Scully’s adventures as the podcast goes hopping through the show’s first nine seasons.
