Storyline

Scully and Mulder are called into the investigation of a series of murders where the victims were all psychics of some sort. A tea leaf reader, tarot card reader and palm reader are all the apparent victims of a serial killer. The local police have brought in a well-known TV psychic that Mulder finds laughable. He does come across Clyde Bruckman, an insurance salesman who may be ca genuine psychic. While Scully is appropriately skeptical, Mulder realizes that Bruckman can only see one thing - how people will die. Written by garykmcd

Mulder and Scully playing "straightmen" to Peter Boyle is priceless. The quote above about auto-erotic asphyxiation after Mulder has asked the psychic Peter Boyle how he will die is worthy of a T-shirt slogan. Are these quotes copyright protected?

I love the X-Files, but sometimes they can be a bit Poe-faced. This episode added just the right amount of humour, plus a bitter-sweet ending.

Young Frankenstein is one of my favourite films, and Peter Boyle's role here equals the one he had in that film and also acts as a model for his role in Everybody Loves Raymond. Mulder and Scully quite rightly just kept in the background acting as Peter's foils.
