    I don't deny that certain members of the FBI were suborned by the conspiracy. What frustrates me so much is how little effort was made to expose those links or to look for allies higher up. Instead when season six starts Mulder and Scully to me look like fools for believing standard operation procedure would be enough to win the day.

Mulder tried and always failed. He would get somewhere then he would screwed over or his father would get murdered or his sister would come back from the dead and turn out to be a clone or he would get an alien virus or Scully would find an alien fetus but have to give up to save Mulder's life or Scully's genetically engineered daughter would die and her body would vanish.

They weren't incompetent...there was just no way Mulder and Scully were ever going to win. The conspiracy had more resources than they did. There was never a chance to actually win against the conspiracy.

    And when it comes to physical evidence there was more than just the bee. Remember that huge space ship that flew away at the end of the movie? It left behind a massive hole. Did no one notice the giant hole in the arctic ice? The unnaturally circular hole? This is why I hated season three so much; they created this huge splash with the movie, ended on a high note, and then Fox and Chris Carter kicked me in the crotch with the first episode of season six.
