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…

Ranking Mulder in The X-Files Season One (#17 – The Jersey Devil)

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…

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…

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. …
