Honey bunch and poopy head.

"Arcadia" is an episode that not only works as a suspenseful standalone, but also as a juncture for the "shipper" fans. Mulder and Scully enter a green-lawn-and-picket-fence community as Rob and Laura Petrie (like the dish!) to investigate a number of fly-by-night murders that no one else seems bothered to investigate. When the new neighbors act in suspicious manners, reprimanding the use of lawn ornaments and unlit lampposts, and others are attacked by a horrible creature, it is clear that the mysterious nature of the townsfolk runs deeper than their landfill's topsoil. The episode manages to work as both a horror story and a comedy (and, if you will, a satire of the American dream) and as such it tends to rank highly in the minds of fans. It also is a dry run at the later romance between Mulder and Scully, and makes for some of their funniest moments (Scully with a facial). While previous episodes tackled the ugly underbellies of private communities, this one arguably did it the most effectively. A season six highlight.

10/10
