Mulder's car has Portland license plates. The show Grimm, which takes place in Portland, Oregon, features people who turn into animal-like or monster-like creatures when they are in certain emotional states. Guy Mann turns into lizard when he gets scared. See more »


When Pasha sneaks up on Mulder between the two tractor trailers Mulder spins round with his phone's camera app still malfunctioning. As he does this we first see the phone's screen facing Pasha (meaning that the flash side is facing Mulder, effectively taking pictures of himself instead) but when the scene cuts back to Mulder the screen is now facing Mulder once again as it should be. Moments later once the Were-Monster appears this happens again as Mulder and Pasha turn to face it, first the screen is facing the Were-Monster and then when ti cuts back to Mulder the screen is now facing him again.

Fox Mulder: Scully, since we've been away, much of the "unexplained" has been explained. The "Death Valley Racetrack"? Turns out it was just ice formations, moving the rocks around as it melted. Yeah, ice. Humility prevents me from recounting how I once thought it had something to do with a series of mysterious sightings of a rock-like creature in Colorado which turned out to just be a publicity stunt by a local landscaping business. It's amazing, going through these archives with fresh - if not wiser - ...

Retro Monster Of The Week
1 September 2016 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Mulder has lost interest in The X-Files, until he finds a lizard-man in the woods.

I love this comical hour! Retro references all over the place: The Creature From The Black Lagoon, Kolchak: The Night Stalker and...Psycho (the motel with holes in the wall).

I relate to middle aged Mulder because I am middle aged, all that stuff where Mulder grapples with technology is just how I am today.

For some reason, Mulder reminded me of Captain Kirk (William Shatner) in Star Trek 2: The Wrath Of Kahn (1982) he had middle aged issues as well.

The only negative: I was a little confused by Lizard-man's accent. I am Australian myself and could not tell if he was from New Zealand or Australia? I was hoping someone in the hour would come out and say where he was from to clear up the confusion.
