Review:

This pair of stand-alone episodes from the third season spotlights the two sides of the series. "Pusher" (episode 17) is the gripping tale of a killer who uses his voice to control men's minds in this literal battle of wills between Mulder (David Duchovny) and the self-described "American Ronin" Robert Modell, who calls himself Pusher (Robert Wisden). Helmed by Rob Bowman, one of the series' strongest directors, this sleek, spooky thriller leaves the conspiracy aside for a tale that combines science and the supernatural in the form of an evil, amoral genius who uses his gift to terrorize and menace. "Jose Chung's 'From Outer Space'" (episode 20), from the fevered mind of Darin Morgin, sparkles with imaginative wit and playful twists on convention. The story, of a possible alien abduction that may in reality be a cover-up for secret air force experiments, is told from the differing points of views of witnesses, all interview subjects of "reality book" author Jose Chung (Charles Nelson Reilly). Morgin takes the premise a step further, transforming the re-creation of events according to the teller of the tale: Rashomon with a satirical slant. With Bowman at the helm delivering Morgin's inventive screenplay with deadpan accuracy, this episode's dry wit and satirical skew has become a fan favorite. --Sean Axmaker
