Head-Spinning Magic!
24 October 2006 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

When a sideshow magician's head does a 360o turn - it falls off! Scully suspects someone else is the hack - Mulder makes his high card disappear! Misdirection and sleight-of-hand are keys to this million-dollar magical mystery of robbery and revenge!

This is a well-done comic episode with a clever plot that keeps the twists coming - the ones we expect, and the ones we don't! The acting is perfect and the ending is too - almost. My only complaints are that too many of the 'magic tricks' are crude cinematographic editing, and the ending should really have been revealed in action, rather than explained.
