  • The intro of Tooms

    This episode kind of appalled me, Tooms was a creepy villian. Kind of makes you think twice, the guy can squeeze to fit into anything, and he's been alive for decades. That is just plain creepy to think about. It's an interesting addition to the series because it certainly is paranormal. Mulder is like fascinated with this suspect. He knows he's right but no one will believe him. And those longer finger prints...Whoa. And Tooms eyes when he sets his sights on a victim, that was creepy as well. This was a creepy episode to the series, but it is still one of the best of the series, I actually read the book they made about this episode before I actually watched the episode, and to me the book is pretty good, but when you see it as an episode it completely blows your mind.
