Storyline

While driving down to Florida with two other FBI agents to attend a team-building seminar, Scully and Mulder are drawn into the disappearance of several men in a wooded area. Rumors are soon circulating in the nearby town that there are monsters in the woods. Mulder soon believes there is definitely something in the woods causing these deaths and nature itself may be seeking revenge in the form of invisible creatures. He and Scully go off into the woods and encounter the creatures firsthand. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Mulder's dialogue "You try any of that Tailhook crap on me, Scully, and I'll kick your ass" is in reference to an incident that took place between September 8 and 12 in 1991. It was the Tailhook Association Symposium conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, in which more than 100 U.S. Military officers allegedly sexually assaulted at least 83 women and 7 men. See more »

Jeremiah was a mothman?
19 July 2007 | by (Sandy, UT, United States) – See all my reviews

Great great great episode. I love the scene at the beginning with Mulder and Scully in the car with the other two agents going off to some kind of marriage counseling partner communication seminar thing and Mulder is less than enthusiastic about it.

KINSLEY: I couldn't believe how hard it was not to use the word "but." MULDER: (In hell) I'm having that same problem right now.

Haha! I love it. I also really like the idea they use of the mothmen being chameleon like where you can't see them at all. I did think it a little interesting that they used mothmen to explain these creatures however because it didn't seem to fit with anything that I have ever heard about Mothmen at all. I haven't read a lot but what I have read or seen matches closer to what is shown in the movie "The Mothman Prophecies". Great movie by the way. But I still enjoyed this episode despite that fact. It is also one of those that you can share with your friends who are maybe easily grossed out. This is actually the episode that I used to get my father to check out more of the series. I give it a 10/10 for sure.
