  • This one reminds me of the good old scary ones!

    This episode has a really good plot in terms of a romantic, tragic tale about a teenage boy. Many things I did not see comming and liked the way all three agents worked together to solve the mystery. The whole story about the boy and his hope to date the most popular girl in school is an oldie but a goodie. You can probably say this episode has some of the fantastic scare elements of season one. It reminds me of the Ice, Darkness falls episodes which have a horror feel to them. I recommend people to see this one as it is one of the best standalone eps in the series.
