At first glance, this 150th episode of The X-Files looks for all the world like a typical installment of the Fox Network reality series Cops -- right down to the "Bad Boys" theme music and the familiar opening-credits graphics. With cameras and portable mikes in hand, the Cops production crew accompany L.A. County Sheriff's deputy Wetzel (Judson Mills) as he investigates a 911 call-in report about a "monster." Arriving in a crime-ridden neighborhood, Wetzel comes upon two armed suspects -- none other than Mulder and Scully. It turns out that the two agents are conducting an investigation of their own, tied in with an outbreak of bizarre activity during the full moon. The best moments in this episode occur when Mulder relishes the notion of "proving" his long-standing theories on a popular national TV show. Written by Vince Gilligan, "X-Cops" first aired February 20, 2000.
