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,…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#21 – Shapes)

I'm continuing my reverse rankings of Fox Mulder in Season 1 of The X-Files and we've arrived at #21. Shapes gets a bad rap from The X-Files fandom which I don't think is entirely deserved. It's a very moody and…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#22 – Born Again)

I'm continuing my reverse rankings of Fox Mulder in Season 1 of The X-Files and we've arrived at #22. Born Again is an absolute slog with dull side characters, poor direction, no warmth, and a paranormal plot that plagiarizes nearly…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#23 – Lazarus)

I've re-watched The X-Files so many times but its been years since I just randomly popped in an episode and enjoyed it. I'm rigidly stubborn and have to watch things in order. Well I just had a kid and kids…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#24 – Space)

A Pointless Review of The X-Files Season 1 Episode 3 – Squeeze

Pointless Review There was a time when I was unfamiliar with The X-Files' unholy trinity of Robert Patrick Modell, Donald Addie Pfaster, and Eugene Victor Tooms. I'd read about these iconic villains while perusing The X-Files message boards but as…

A Pointless Review of The X-Files Season 1 Episode 2 – Deep Throat

Pointless Review The Pilot introduced the world to The X-Files and did a great job of nailing the show's identity right away.  For that I am eternally grateful; enough that I have written four (!) separate reviews of that episode on this blog. …

A Pointless Review of The X-Files Season 1 Episode 1 – Pilot

Pointless Review My X-Files fanaticism began during the middle of the fourth season when it was already a glossy, immaculately produced mini-movie that happened to come out every week.  David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson could play their characters in their sleep…

Ranking the Episodes of The X-Files Season 3 – #4-6

The third season of The X-Files is brimming with episodes that I could watch over and over. Ranking them is probably a pointless endeavor considering my list changes pretty much daily. Oh well, such is life. Read on and also…

Ranking The Episodes of The X-Files Season 3 – #7-9

So let's see, I reduced the number of episodes I talk about per ranking to three from four and it somehow takes me more time to write these?  Ahhh the magic of laziness... Here's my seventh, eighth, and ninth favorite episodes of…
