Product Description

All 24 episodes from the first season of the hugely popular paranormal detective show. Follow Agents Mulder and Scully as they battle corruption within the government and spooky goings on. Stand-out episodes from the first season include 'Ice', in which Mulder and Scully fly to a frozen Arctic out-post to investigate the eerie deaths of an entire team of scientific researchers assigned to drill deep within the earth to study prehistoric core samples. Others include 'Fallen Angel', 'E.B.E' and 'The Erlenmeyer Flask'.

From Amazon.co.uk

In the first season of The X Files, creator Chris Carter was uncertain of the series' future, so each of the episodes is a self-contained suspense story; they do not delve deep into the ongoing X Files mythology or turn to self-parody and humour as do episodes in later seasons. Yet, these episodes display the elements for which the show would become famous: the cinematic production values and top-notch special effects, the stark lighting of the Vancouver sets, the atmospheric halo of Mark Snow's score, and the clever plots dealing with subjects ranging from the occult, religion, and monsters to urban legends, conspiracy theories and science fiction. Most importantly, Season 1 introduces FBI agents Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox "Spooky" Mulder (David Duchovny), two of the most attractive government officials around. Scully is the serious-minded medical scientist assigned to join Mulder on the X Files, a division of the FBI dealing with the paranormal. Mulder is the intuitive thinker with a dry wit, a passionate believer in the existence of paranormal phenomena and one of the few characters on television smart enough to figure out who the bad guy is before the audience does. Their muddled relationship, a deep friendship laced with sexual tension, provides the human heart in a world where the bizarre and horrible lurk in everyday society.

The materials on the bonus disc provide some interesting trivia and background, but it is the 24 episodes themselves that make this seven-disc boxed set a true find. Those unfamiliar with The X Files often view all the fuss with the same scepticism with which Scully first regards her new partner's ideas. But just as she comes to realise the uncanny accuracy of Mulder's outlandish theories, newcomers to The X Files who sample a few episodes in this boxed set will likely find themselves riveted to their television late into the night. And undoubtedly, the shadows and creaking noises in the house that evening will seem more menacing than usual. --Eugene Wei, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
Almost seven years after the series was first shown in America, the UK can finally get their hands on the first season on DVD.
The episodes themselves are brilliant, as any fan will know. The DVD quality is perfection itself; sharp picture, and great sound. There are numerous extra features that come with the episodes. There is instant scene access - very useful for a TV show like the X Files - and subtitles.
That's it, you think? Well no, that's not it. On the seventh disc that comes in the set, there are two television trailers for each episode (more entertaining than they sound), interviews about half of the episodes from the first season, a documentary on the first season, more than ten "Behind The Truth" mini-documentaries, and the DVD-ROM game. Now how many lines did that take up?
All of these features are great, especially the game. Not exactly long-lasting, but very entertaining.
In summary, any X Files fan MUST buy this, no questions asked. Don't hesitate if you don't have a DVD player: if your computer has a DVD-ROM drive, you can watch them just as comfortably. The picture and sound are still great, and so long as you have a decent sized monitor and a nice chair, it's fine.

The series that started it all, the phenomenon that shook the world...Yes it's all here in one little box.
The box set contains all 24 episodes of X Files Season 1 and also commentaries from Chris Carter and behind the scenes/making of featurettes.
The main story behind the X Files is about an agent, Fox Mulder, who works for the FBI and deals in cases classed as "X Files", basically very weird and strange occurrences that make hours of quality viewing. Then along comes sceptical agent Skully who is far more down to earth and is always looking for a more plausible/biological explanation behind each case. Therefore you've got the perfect pretence for countless episodes of Mulder trying to persuade and Skully not believing (it gets a tad tedious, but at times you find yourself on Skully's side because it seems Mulder has a never ending supply of knowledge when it comes to weird happenings)!
Within the series a huge range of topics are covered. From the occult to AI. From alien/government conspiracies to worms and bugs. From spooky spectres and ghosts to fire wielding maniacs. The list is endless. Each episode is a stand alone but links can be made and huge plot developments are made in the second series.
All the episodes are brilliant, entertaining and sometimes downright scary. I would love to describe each episode in detail but that would take ages, so instead I'll briefly describe three (I'll give a back of the box description not a complete in depth plot analysis). Before I do I first want to greatly recommend you buying this. It's well worth the reduced price and unlike the other series it won't confuse you too much. The only bad points are the simple sets and average acting (although sometimes the acting is great) but that can be forgiven, it is the first series.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was always a fan of the x files but buying this first series made me appreciate so much that i missed first time around. It contains 24 episodes that will keep you glued to the screen. Hope you have a spare 19 hours before you start watching. After I had finished I was hungry for more and the show had cemented its place as my one of my favourites. Admittedly, I was a little unsure when I bought this. The price seemed high and I wasn't sure how many times I'd return to watching the episodes. But having watched the first two discs I became convinced that this was my best ever dvd buy. The seven discs are presented in a tidy package and the box set reeks of quality. One major plus point of the first series is that nearly every episode is a stand-alone and you do not need to watch the series in any particular order. This means plenty of focus on action and the paranormal; each episode is more like a short film than a series. This makes it an ideal buy for anyone who remembers liking the programme series but has long since forgotten the first series. While each episode achieves a high standard, everyone will have their favourites. For me, Squeeze and Tooms stand out but following its release on video as a two-parter, many may already be familiar with these episodes. Apart from these, I have a big soft spot for the episode 'Fire'. This is not brilliant televsison, the acting and script is perhaps under par by the series very high standards. However it is pure entertainment and I have probably watched it more than any other. We also learn quite a lot about Mulder's past in England and perhaps become aware of Scully's feelings for Mulder. This is how the x-files was meant to be. A far cry from the disappointments of series 8.Read more ›

This DVD box set is just unbelievable, especially to the X-Phile in you, superbly boxed in a flip out case style box. (Which is a mystery in itself to open hehe)
Each disc contains 4 (a total of 7 discs, 7th disc contains all the wonderful extras) super sharp episodes, the sounds really come alive, which makes watching the whole series again justifiable in their own rights, and what episodes they are, we are duly introduced to the `Spooky` Fox Mulder, and his new sceptical sidekick/partner Dr Dana Scully, who is (as you all will know) sent in to debunk his work.
What follows is an intriguing series, which duly created a whole new meaning to the word `paranoia`, not only in the native US/Canada, but worldwide.
There are also little snippets on the discs of `International Clips`, from two out of the four episodes, which include your favourite clips in German (if thats your thing)or how about listening to Mulder & Scully argue in maybe Japanese? Fun to watch anway.
Anoter little interesting item is the `cut to post production` elements within certain episodes (Fallen Angel Disc 2, Episode 2) for instance, this basically is like the `Follow the white rabbit` from the Matrix, where at a certain time of the episode you get to press SELECT and view this bonus material, which again is fun.
Over all, this is definately a must have for the X-File lover, and for the uninititated members of the public out there, all I can say is roll on Series 2!!
