I find that X files is really hit and miss with comedic episodes. I prefer episodes that are entirely serious with 1-2 dry wit lines from Mulder/Scully. OR full comedy episodes.
This episode was flawless. It proved brilliant satire for both Cops and the X files. In particular, the scenes where Mulder talks to the camera are deep humour... Mulder comes off as absurd and somewhat narcissistic, while poking fun at the Cops format. I also was on the floor when the Deputy was commenting on the sketch artist getting killed with cliche after cliche. And there is nothing better than agent Scully pissed off, sarcastic, and trying desperately to keep it real. "The FBI has nothing to hide". What a terrific episode
