The Horror Queers are celebrating their 50th episode with a Very Special Episode discussing.....pedophilia? And The X-Files? If that sounds like a weird combination, it's because it is. Luckily, they have Trace's better half (i.e., husband) and X-Files stan Ari Drew helping them through this momentous occasion!

What's the best way to reward your fans that have been watching your show for nine years? According to series creator Chris Carter, it's to release a completely standalone film that eschews the series' mythology in favor of trying to earn new viewers! Oh, and let's have very undeveloped and un-nuanced discussions about major issues like pedophilia, stem cell research and head-transplanted Frankenstein monsters that walk some murky areas on transgender issues.

Oh, and Trace apologizes in advance for his incomprehensibility in the last half of the episode. He thought it would be a good idea to drink a very large glass of whiskey (on an empty stomach) during the recording. It wasn't.

This Week's Game: What is a television show that you would like to see adapted to the big screen as a horror movie?
