A fusion of "Daria" and "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"...seriously.
7 March 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The episode begins with some creepy government agents from an anonymous agency show up at school and tell the kids to look out for strange people--and they are NOT talking about Daria! Later, Jane talks about aliens and mind control and Daria begins to feel a bit freaked when people around her begin behaving very atypically. For instance, Quinn starts dressing like a beatnik and the parents make some strange remarks about aliens that Daria misunderstands. Soon, the kids at school all start making up all kinds of crazy rumors--especially when Mr. DeMartino is taken away in handcuffs and Jake assumes Daria is now a communist!! What is going on here?! This episode was clearly inspired by "The X-Files"--a huge hit at the time this episode was made. Not only the title, but so many elements are X-Files inspired and it's a cute little parody. But to find out what all this is REALLY about, you'll need to tune in yourself. This particular show was a big departure for the series and a welcome one--clever and a ice change of pace.

By the way, this is the second appearance of Artie--a really bizarre and funny character who says he was abducted by aliens...on several occasions.
