27. Trash Our Childhood, 90's "X-Men: The Animated Series" Edition


Best. Theme song. Ever. If you disagree, I don't think we can be friends.
Matt and Luciano are joined once again by Andrew and Dwight, this time to talk about one of our favourite cartoon series from the 1990's, X-Men: The Animated Series – specifically, the two-parter "Days of Future Past" (Season 1, Episodes 11 and 12).

How does it hold up today? Do the millennials like it? Has the animation aged well? Did children and teenagers back then have enough attention span to care about the plot being a hot mess, or did they only care about superpowers, lasers and explosions? Is it any different nowadays? Is there a better theme song out there?

Come listen to find the answer to all of those questions and more (freebie: the answer to that last question is a resounding "no")!
