Storyline

Mulder and Scully are asked by Mulder's old partner Agent Jerry Lamana for help on a case. Benjamin Drake chairman of Eurisko, a major computer company, was electrocuted at the office. The dead man was a personal friend of the Attorney General and Jerry doesn't want to mess up on such a high profile case. Computer genius Brad Wilczek co-founded the company with Drake and had a falling out over the direction of the company. Mulder wonders is someone might have hacked into the Eurisko building's elaborate computer system to use it to electrocute Drake. He turns to his new contact, Deep Throat, to try and figure out what is going on. Written by garykmcd

Killer Technology
20 September 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A corporate boss is found dead.His death seems to have been caused by the computer which runs the main operations in his work building.I feel that the idea of Artificial Intelligencce running amok and killing people is a welcome addition to the x-files.It fits in well with the whole paranormal theme.Like if you can't trust computers who can you trust?I also enjoy the element of a former partner of Mulder's being brought in on the case thus letting the viewer grab another sneak peak into the life of Mulder before he was assigned to the x-files.Also there's a brief appearance by the elusive Deep Throat.Enough to keep hardcore fans of this character happy
