Episode 1.20: Max to the Max

Double your Maxes, double your fun! Or your creepiness, since one of those Maxes is really Nasedo. And now he’s got Liz! Join us as we fret over Liz’s safety, marvel at Maria’s and Alex’s emotional maturity, and thankfully resolve the whole Isabel/Michael pregnancy scare. And we are joined by our very first special guest host ever! Nomi from the We Want Roswell Back campaign is here with us discussing season 1 episode 20, Max to the Max.

Fake Max! Or as I like to call him, Fax
