Beware the Flukeman! Clay McCormack of The Pensky File sits down with Erix to chat about one of the most popular “Monster of the Week” episodes of the entire series. Even since I first caught it when it aired in 1994, this episode has been seared into my brain. I guess part of that has to do with my general disgust when it comes to wormy, leechy, sluggy things. Seriously, slimy invertebrates give me the creeps! Beyond that, it’s just a damn good story and I know that both Erix and Clay agree with me. Flukeman himself might literally suck (and infect you), but he’s a great monster and this is an excellent episode…
