Abra Cadabra
19 July 2007 | by (Sandy, UT, United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great episode if only because it is about magic. It starts out wonderfully with the Amazing Maleeni's head falling off and then some great camera work with Mulder holding up the picture of the pier and then pulling it away to show a camera shot of the same scene live. I always have liked the shows or movies that lay out some elaborate scheme but don't reveal it to you until the end of the show. You have to watch and try to fit the clues together otherwise you have no idea what is going on which also isn't necessarily bad because that just keeps you wondering and watching until the end. I liked that in the end of this episode there are extra twists even after the trick is explained and that Mulder was able to outsmart the magicians. Always one step ahead. I love watching this episode every time and I give it a 10/10
