    "The X-files episodes just keep on getting better and better! I dint imagine that Brad Dourif can pull off acting this good. The mystery element of this episode was through the roof! I never knew which side to root for cuz i'm in the dark about every EFFIN thing! It's such a gem of a show i hope to watch more of this. I really think it's one of those classic shows that will make you hooked and bingewatch.."

    "I really thought the killer was using eye contact to influenece people, especially when i saw it with the judge and fbi scenes but then i saw that the killer also used manipulation over the telephone? I got lost. But overall it was very entertaining."

    "A big clap to this episode. The nod to star wars was a great reference. I dig the scene with the truck basket thing coming through above. The homage to Ray Harryhausen's films was greatly executed. Well- written and very well thought of. Great job!"
