Fox Mulder, rowwrr.
I still think the best block of TV maybe ever was The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. followed by The X-Files. It didn't hurt that both Bruce Campbell and David Duchovny were super cute... Sigh...
I was a weird girl. Screw it, I still am a weird girl.
First season Cooper is the best and an amazing character. Second season Cooper was kind of a dick.
Currently watching season 2 right now, how is he a dick? I don't see it. And season 1 Cooper is amazing, you are correct
He, Sheriff Truman, Ed and the other 'normals' of the show (relatively speaking) seemed to be way more judging of the 'abnormals' with a lot of sideways glances and the like. In the first season they were still the 'normals' but seemed to go along with the crazy. In season 2 they just seem like they don't even want to associate with the 'abnormals'.
Neither of those two. My choice goes to Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive...
He was a U.S. Marshal not an FBI agent.
I'd pick Dale Cooper, mostly because I'm a bigger fan of Twin Peaks than Deadly Premonition. But I honestly don't think I'd want either of them to solve an actual crime. They're both a tad loopy.
