Mind's Eye (The X-Files)

"Mind's Eye" is the sixteenth episode of the fifth season of the American science fiction television series The X-Files. The episode first aired in the United States on April 19, 1998 on the Fox network. It was written by Tim Minear and directed by Kim Manners. The episode is a " Monster-of-the-Week"" story, a stand-alone plot which is unconnected to the series' wider mythology. "Mind's Eye" received a Nielsen household rating of 10.4 and was watched by 16.53 million viewers. The episode received moderately positive reviews, with many critics praising Taylor's performance as Glenn.

The show centers on FBI special agents Fox Mulder ( David Duchovny) and Dana Scully ( Gillian Anderson) who work on cases linked to the paranormal, called X-Files. In this episode, Mulder and Scully investigate a murder that seems to have been committed by a blind woman, Marty Glenn ( Lili Taylor), but Mulder suspects that she is capable of seeing images in some other way. Eventually, it is revealed that Glenn, while blind, can see the actions of her murderous father via her mind's eye.

"Mind's Eye" was inspired by the concept of " remote viewing", or being able to see events beyond the range of normal vision. Minear sought to make Glenn the opposite of Audrey Hepburn's character in the 1967 film Wait Until Dark, in which Hepburn played the part of an innocent but terrorized blind woman. "Mind's Eye" marked the rare television appearance of Taylor, who primarily worked on well-regarded independent films. In fact, Taylor herself requested to appear in the series.

Mind's Eye (radio series)

Mind's Eye is a series of BBC radio dramas set in Dublin, concerning the effect of apparent paranormal phenomena on two psychotherapists, Lorcan Molloy and his daughter Aoife. Lorcan is mourning the recent death of his wife Jennifer, and also wishing for grandchildren from Aoife, who prefers her life as a single professional.

Lorcan and Aoife are presented with a series of cases which may represent spiritual possession, precognition, contact with angels, haunting and poltergeists. A freelance paranormal investigator and journalist, Fergus Rayner, who was a detective in the Dublin Garda before his obsession with the paranormal ended his career, inserts himself into each investigation, to the dismay of the Molloys. Not only does Fergus pester them with his ideas, he frequently writes newspaper articles containing wild accusations. Lorcan himself caused the end of Fergus' career by recommending him for psychiatric evaluation, after Fergus decided a particularly gruesome murder was actually a case of possession. Fergus claims that this was a "liberation" for him, but he may still harbor resentment towards Lorcan, who is beset with doubts about his ability to help people through his work, and indeed whether or not he ought take the paranormal more seriously, if only to help him understand his patients' state of mind. Aoife resolutely clings to the rational approach. A doctor at the local hospital, Brian Walsh, is involved with some of the cases, and is also interested in Aoife herself. Their relationship develops through the series, conflicting with Aoife's desire to devote herself to supporting her father. In the last episode, they take a trip to Paris together.

The series was conceived by Gemma McMullen and Gerry Casey, who wrote the first three episodes. The final two were written by John Murphy.
