Storyline

Mulder and Scully head off to the Pacific Northwest when there are reports that 30 loggers seem to have simply disappeared. Mulder is aware of a similar case in 1934 and along with a forest ranger and a representative of the logging company, the agents head off into the woods. They know that environmental activists are in the area and when they come across one of them, he says that a swarm of bugs that only comes out at night is responsible for the deaths. A body they find wrapped in a bug cocoon seems to bear out his claim. With no way to communicate with the outside world and with the gas for the generator running low, they have to find a way to survive. Written by garykmcd

Ah, the leftists are at it again in this stinker. As usual, the lumber companies are portrayed as the evil usurpers of nature. The eco-terrorists of course are truly terrorists, attempting to cause injury and even death by spiking trees and other means all in an effort to "Save the earth", something the earth hasn't asked for, nor does it need. We have a group of leftist writers who spend their time inserting their political opinions(all ludicrous) in a television show that masquerades as entertainment and apparently they had enough leftists watching this excrement to make a hit out of an otherwise boring, inane attempt at sci fi. You want real sci fi? Watch the original Star Trek series, BEFORE the left started pushing the feminist agenda and putting men in dresses. Don't waste your time, this stinker is just another conspiracy theory advanced by individuals that lack basic intelligence.
