Great Episode
10 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

In this x-file, a young man who works at a fast-food store, has problems controlling his monstrous appetite for human brains. To make this episode more interesting, we see the story unfold through the life of the monster, which surprisingly makes you feel sorry for him. Looking for help, he attends an eating-disorder clinic which doesn't help much and just makes things even more frustrating. As Mulder and Scully get closer to exposing the truth, you can't wait to find out what will happen and you even hope the case remains unsolved for the benefit of our misunderstood, brain-eating monster.
