Not Even 25 Years Of Experience Can Make Fox Mulder A Decent FBI Agent

The truth is right here, dummy.

You would think after 25 years of being an FBI agent, you’d get the hang of it. Well, in the case of Special Agent Mulder, that is simply not the case, based on all the unsolved cases (and a few other things that we’re about to investigate).

David Duchovny said, himself, Mulder would make a horrible FBI agent, but that didn’t stop us from digging into why. But wouldn’t a half-decent FBI agent be able to convict Donald Trump of treason with his eyes closed and hands tied behind his back? Maybe. They’d at least be able to figure out what’s going on with his hair.

As Fox’s X-Files turns 25 years old this year, we start asking the tough questions, like “Where was Mulder between the years of 2002 and 2016?” and “Does he even know what a UFO is?”

Follow along as we help Mulder and Scully celebrate their lengthy working relationship, as well as break down just how bad of an FBI agent this guy really is. In all realness, we love you, David, and we’re thrilled you haven’t been fired for good, yet.
