Storyline

Mulder and Scully's investigation into a mass shooting in a coffee shop leads them to believe that the targets were not the low level drug dealers and wholesalers who were killed but rather Donald Geldman who had been sitting at a table working on his laptop computer. The Lone Gunmen tell Mulder and Scully that Geldman was one of the original computer geniuses who disappeared years before. His laptop leads the agents to a hacker, Esther Nairn, who goes by the name Visigoth. She tells them of a vast government conspiracy involving artificial intelligence that allows them to see everything and take action against all enemies. Written by garykmcd

My FAVORITE X-files episode
7 July 2013 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Any REAL X-Files fan like myself who has watched all the episodes and just truly loved them all, you guys know how hard it is to pick a favorite because deep down, they all mean a lot to you. So as hard as it is to pick an all-time favorite, well likewise, it's hard to find one to critiscize. But The way I feel is this one has stuck in my mind and the tip of my tongue probably the most, along with "Terms of Endearment" and whether you're a die-hard X-Files fan or just a interested sci-fi lover, I recommend this episode to you. It's worth 10 stars in my book, it just pulls you in. But why stop there? I recommend you watch all of the 202 X-Files episodes in order. Are you up for the challenge? I can promise you will come out obsessed over this great show
