Darin Morgan: the Frank Tashlin of our day. Discuss. Or read The Bear That Wasn’t, which this episode totally reminded me of.

“This was actually a modified version of “The M Word,” an unproduced episode Morgan wrote for Frank Spotnitz’s short-lived Night Stalker remake… You can read “The M Word” script here, if you’re curious about what changed beyond substituting Mulder and Scully for Kolchak and Reed.”
