Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#15 – Shadows)

Next up in my reverse rankings of Fox Mulder in Season 1 of The X-Files, Shadows slides its way in at #15. I always knew it was going to be in the middle of the pack seeing as it's about as milquetoast…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#16 – Ghost in the Machine)

I’m continuing my reverse rankings of Fox Mulder in Season 1 of The X-Files and we’ve arrived at #16. When I think of Ghost in the Machine, I think of pure B-movie schlock. It's got a hilariously retro synth score, painfully outdated…

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…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#19 – Roland)

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,…

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)

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…

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…
