I don’t feel like this episode gets enough love.  Fans tend to prefer the similar episode “Wetwired” and/or feel that the references to then-recent violent news stories were over the top.  But this episode, more than almost any other, captures the rambling weirdness of true Art Bell-style four-in-the-morning conspiracy paranoia.  The writing assist from Darin Morgan, seen just last week in the Flukeman suit, probably helped.  Morgan, of course, went on to write ultimate batshit-paranoia episode “Jose Chung’s From Outer Space.”

And we never find out who’s behind the whole thing!  Excellent.
