* CrossOver: ''Series/{{Millennium}}'', ''Series/TheLoneGunmen'', ''Series/{{Cops}}'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', and very possibly ''Series/HomicideLifeOnTheStreet''. Richard Belzer's appearance as Lieutenant JustForFun/JohnMunch on the episode "Unusual Suspects" is more of a [[TheCameo Cameo]] ShoutOut with a very direct {{Expy}}.

The show's writers, among them Carter and future ''Breaking Bad'' showrunner Vince Gilligan, were celebrated for their innovative mix of cop-show conventions, ''{{Series/Moonlighting}}'' style romance, urban legends, new age mysticism, government conspiracies, action, wry humor and genuinely scary moments. The show's high production values and sharp writing helped it reach beyond the niche ''Series/TwinPeaks'' crowd to make it one of the most popular and acclaimed shows on television and a bona fide worldwide cultural phenomenon. It was one of the earliest shows to be released in box sets (albeit on home video with inflated price tags) with behind-the-scenes goodies. These VHS sets became a common sight in supermarkets and rental stores, which fueled viewership even more.

FBI physician Dr. Dana Scully is assigned the task of keeping tabs on Agent Fox Mulder, [[BunnyEarsLawyer a talented detective]] whose [[OccultDetective obsession with the paranormal]] is of grave concern to his superiors. Working out of the [[ReassignedToAntarctica Hoover Building basement]], Mulder specializes in the Bureau's "X-Files": a collection of cold cases deemed unsolvable due to macabre or taboo elements. While Mulder attributes these elements to the supernatural and extraterrestrial, Scully is a skeptic who attempts to debunk his theories through scientific reasoning. [[TheyFightCrime Together they investigate all manner of strange and unusual cases]], which over time hint at a massive government conspiracy linked to [[RoswellThatEndsWell a series of alien abductions going as far back as the forties.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ImprovisedCross: In the episode "Bad Blood", Mulder tries to arrest Ronnie, a teenage vampire who tries to resist and fights quite hard. There is also a whole community of vampires coming to help Ronnie. Mulder spots some garlic bread sticks, grabs two of them and shapes them into a cross. It doesn't work, so he throws them at the people. That doesn't work either.
