Synopsis | Mulder and Scully investigate the disappearance of a man in a small town populated by cannibals.
Trivia | “Our Town” is Frank Spotnitz’s first solo non-mythology writing effort; even though he has been more involved with the overaching story, he has ocasionally come up with spooky stand-alone episodes (like this one) as a solo writer – “Detour”, “Via Negativa”, and “Dæmonicus”, for instance. Some characters in this episode are named after real-life cannibals.
Quotes | Mulder: “Scully, I think the good people of Dudley have been eating more than just chicken.” Scully: “You think these people were eaten!?”
