Storyline

FBI agent Fox Mulder is called in by a small-town sheriff to investigate a raft of inexplicable killings. The acts are random and committed by well-respected members of the community. Scully performs an autopsy, and Mulder turns to the Lone Gunmen with her findings. He concludes that the local municipality is using a banned pesticide that could lead to psychoses. Having found an electronic device smashed at every killing, he begins to suspect someone of making subliminal suggestions. Written by garykmcd

Bad vibes
2 June 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This vies for some of the worst, most useless X-file storytelling. What were they thinking?

We get covert pesticide spraying, chemically induced paranoia, and get this, remote controlled insertion of subliminal messages in electronic devices, apparently timed to perfection. Mulder himself gets a taste of it, but typical for X-file norms, we're meant to read some ambiguity on whether or not 'truth' is really out there or just a state of mind.

What the X-files won't acknowledge but really gives it some power is that Mulder is the viewer, the paranormal fan who pursues all sorts of stories that feed and induce hallucination. This can and should be taken in many directions, but instead we have it reduced to shenanigans.
