Who Won the Week podcast, Episode 8: The X-Files, Shannara Chronicles, Legends of Tomorrow, and more new TV

Jan 8, 2016, 5:05 PM EST

Welcome to the latest episode of Who Won the Week, a weekly podcast in which Blastr staffers Adam Swiderski, Aaron Sagers, Dany Roth and Cher Martinetti look back at the week that was and the stories that are blowing up the geek-o-sphere. 

This week, we're kicking off the year with a look ahead at an absolutely loaded January for sci-fi, fantasy and horror TV. Whether you're into high fantasy, the paranormal or superheroes, and whether you're looking for something new or the return of old favorites, you've got plenty to pick from, and it's a lot to sift through. Can The Shannara Chronicles bring high fantasy back to TV? Can The X-Files recapture the conspiracy-fueled magic it once had? Will Legends of Tomorrow continue The CW's comic book-win streak? We break it all down, plus discuss whether The Force Awakens can catch Avatar.

Give it a listen below.
