The investigation of a neighborhood monster isn't too weird for the crew of Cops to follow around Mulder and Scully.

Season 7 the best Season awesome Episode X - Cops
12 October 2012 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

The X - Files Season Seven is awesome! This one is one of the best episodes ever that is actually about cops in real life,about some monster's Werewolf and Freddy Krueger boy was i laughing. The story was evolving about cops in real life when they are patrolling during nights. Officer Deputy Keith Wetzel (Judson Mills) responded to the emergency call when he arrived on the scene,he saw scratches on the door of the house he attended too,he asked and tried to cheer out the old lady with "there is no monster here" but than he saw something for him self and got scared and he run away, his car got flipped over and he got injured. When other Police Officers respond to his emergency call and arrive right away,they found him injured and his car roll over,smashed on the road with the camera man. They ask him what did he see and he said it was a gang that did this.On the event they come across with Special Agent's Mulder & Scully FBI while they where investigating the case there, they got followed around by the 'COPS' camera crew who are filming 'COPS' episode. Whole 44.mins episode was really awesome. I have Season 7 directly on DVD and i just finished watching this episode and i decide i must leave a comment here. I have all nine seasons of The X - Files on DVD and this one is one of my favorite episodes and the season ever. So far i considered Season 2,4,5 and of course 7 the best one so far. I Love Mulder so so so much. David Duchovny is totally awesome/amazing as Fox Mulder FBI Agent. Special guest star Judson Mills who played Francis Gage in Walker,Texas Ranger and Deke Slater in sequel The President's Man: A Line in the Sand (2002) by Chuck Norris's Side. The Episode was written by Vince Gilligan and directed by Michael Watkins. This Show is the best!!! I can't wait to finish watching this season and seeing Season 8 and 9 awesome!!!! Thank god for DVD's! My vote is 8 out of 10.
