COCOON is one of the more interesting episodes of MONSTERS although that's mainly down to the air of mystery and ambiguity surrounding the central plotting. Certainly it has more going for it than all the nonsense comedy and one-note episodes of the show. The storyline involves a woman laid up with amnesia who asks a detective to discover her past. By coincidence, the detective's girlfriend is a psychic who soon uncovers some very bizarre historical mysteries associated with the woman...
The best thing about COCOON is the cast, which is actually decent for a MONSTERS episode. Headlining it is the great Billy Drago, surprisingly not cast as a villain here! Well, it does turn out that he's morally ambiguous, but at least he's not the out-and-out bad guy that he usually plays. Still, most of the running time involves a battle of wits between the two female characters, and the actresses are effective. I also liked the moments of subtlety here and there which you don't expect from the show.
