Beware of the Howlers
27 July 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

Unruhe keeps the beginnings of season 4 strong. The episode features a deleted scene at the very beginning of the episode, where Mulder is on a phone call where he finds out how is mom was doing, going back to Herrenvolk. Without having watched the audio commentary on that deleted scene yet, I would imagine it was deleted after they moved that episode from being right after the season premiere to fourth in the season. Pruitt Taylor Vince does an outstanding job as Gerry Schauz. He's got this, uh, eye thing going, where is eyes are constantly moving back and forth. It just adds to his dementia. The psychic photography is kind of cool. Scully still tries to find a scientific explanation for the girl screaming in the photo. Won't this girl ever learn? What the computer guy at the FBI was able to do with the photograph was a bit of a stretch. But then again, so are Mulder's leaps in logic. However, Unruhe is a very entertaining episode with plenty of suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat.
