From the commentary the self-storage location was in Carson, L.A. Reviewing self-storage locations in Google Maps, reveals one at (US Storage Centers) 735 W Carson St, Torrance, CA 90502. It has blue rollover doors, and downward facing lamps above some of the doors. Street bollards are yellow, as in this story. See more »

I wish for world peace, do I?
22 December 2006 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I am watching for the third time the X Files now, one episode after another. It isn't until now, that I have study a little about screen writing that I understand a lot new things an some other I understand better.

The script is the soul of the episode, without it It would be like a zombie or something like that. Well Vince Gilligan is an unsung hero. It was his writing that placed the X Files where they were, as the No. 1 Television Drama for a long time.

When I first saw at the beginning of this episode that it was written by Gilligan I thought It was going to be a marvelous episode, I wasn't mistaken.

When it come to writing, It's not the story itself, it is how you tell the story. So we can watch a lot of movies with a Romeo & Juliet spit but there are only a few that are good enough to be discussed at reunions. The same thing happened here. A story of a Genie, yes the same Genie, different place to live, but a Genie anyway. The story was great, watch it, live it, admire it.

Way to go Vince!
