A string of mysterious deaths of recent Chinese immigrants brings Agents Mulder and Scully to San Francisco’s Chinatown. The Agents team up with a Chinese-American detective to better understand the language and customs of the Chinese culture, but one thing remains frighteningly clear — all of the bodies are missing various internal organs.

You know, this was a pretty good ep. I caught it one evening by accident when it was re-running on Sci-Fi channel. It was a pretty good story. You really wanted the best for the father and his daughter during the entirety of this ep.

hell Money is VERY under-rated. It is a good episode that features suspenseful scenes and lots of mood. I gave this a "3" as a good example of XFiles stand alone eps.

Probably one of my favorite episodes!

Not exactly sure why it's an X-File, things similar to this may very well go on, especially in a community such as Chinatown, which is almost like its' own little country. One of the most realistic episodes, imho.

If you spend your time investigating the paranormal then you're surely often going to find small conspiracies that are using urban legends, religion etc to hide a criminal truth. It doesn't bother me remotely that there's no X File to be found here because, well, that's probably how it should be.
