Storyline

Scully and Mulder head off to Georgia when there are reports of people disappearing around a local lake. Scully isn't sure why they're getting involved until she sees a highway sign advertising their own version of the Loch Ness monster called Big Blue. The latest victim is a park ranger, giving the FBI jurisdiction, but Scully thinks it's all nonsense. The killings continue and Mulder thinks there something very real out there. Scully comes around when she is affected by the 'monster' in a very personal way. Written by garykmcd

A really fun episode
22 April 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

YAY for Quagmire! This fantastic season three episode isn't among most X-philes' favorites, but it's one of my more unorthodox choices. I enjoy this episode a great deal, and though I'm not a shipper I must admit that I loved when Mulder and Scully's respectful intellectual romance came into the forefront as it did here. Very subtle and nice, actually romantic rather than cliché and soap-opera-ish.

The plot is not the most original, that's for sure, but it doesn't matter because it is handled very, very well. Kim Newton only wrote two episodes of The X-Files, what a shame, as this is a very good script. The episode is beautifully directed by Kim Manners as well.

I'm one of Quagmire's biggest fans. Bye Queequeg! 10/10
