Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#11 – Young at Heart)

We're here at #11 in my Season 1 episode rankings of Mulder's impact and Young at Heart somehow ended up here. I could make a joke about how this episode figured out how to reverse the crappiness process and thus…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#12 – Gender Bender)

Gender Bender comes in at #12 in my Season 1 episode rankings of Mulder's impact and I'm always left bewildered at how strange it is. Nothing about the actual story or plot engages me, the pacing is hit or miss,…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#13 – Squeeze)

Squeeze comes in at number 13 in my rankings of Mulder in Season 1 of The X-Files. This is an important milestone, both in the show's run and in these rankings. For these rankings, it marks the point where I've finished…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#14 – Miracle Man)

Next up in my reverse rankings of Fox Mulder's impact in Season 1 of The X-Files, we've arrived at #14. Miracle Man is a weird episode for Mulder. On one hand, his impact on the main plot is negligible like so many…

I'm continuing my reverse rankings of Fox Mulder in Season 1 of The X-Files and we've arrived at #17. The Jersey Devil is a major turning point for the relationship between Mulder and Scully. It is also a prime example…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#18 – Beyond the Sea)

I'm continuing my reverse rankings of Fox Mulder in Season 1 of The X-Files and we've arrived at #18. This one is a doozy because Beyond the Sea is a phenomenal episode and is full of quality Mulder moments. His…

I'm continuing my reverse rankings of Fox Mulder in Season 1 of The X-Files and we've arrived at #19. When I think about Roland, Mulder is not the first thing to come to mind. Other than an interesting dream he…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#20 – Fire)

I'm continuing my reverse rankings of Fox Mulder in Season 1 of The X-Files and we've arrived at #20. Fire feels like an episode where the primary goal was to broaden Mulder's characterization. We learn about his past relationships, phobias,…
