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…

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,…

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. …

Ranking the Episodes of The X-Files Season 3 #13-16

I'm back with the next set in my Season 3 rankings. This is an incredible season of television which means the only way to rank these final sixteen episodes is to poke and prod at the flaws in otherwise stellar…

Ranking the Episodes of The X-Files Season 3 – #17-20

It's been nearly three months since my last episode ranking. While the reason is mostly related to my inherent laziness, I'd rather play it off as me being in a state of perpetual awe at just how awesome Season 3…
