From Amazon.co.uk

With so many promises to fulfil and questions left unanswered, the ninth and final series of The X-Files was inevitably going to short-change some of its audience. Mulder is missing, Scully is in and out with various baby concerns, Reyes frequently seems like she's only along for the ride and Doggett seems so right in the role that some fans wondered if he should have appeared sooner. Other cult cameos flitted across the screen in an attempt to keep viewers transfixed. Lucy Lawless, Cary Elwes and Robert Patrick's real-life wife were interesting diversions, but when Burt Reynolds appeared to be none other than God himself, it was apparent that nothing at all was sacred in this last year.

Standalone episodes (for example, on Satanic possession and a Brady Bunch psycho) proved to be amongst the least interesting of the show's efforts. No doubt because everyone was focussing on the all-important arc story episodes. Was there more than one alien faction? Were they all in collusion? Who had control of the black oil virus? Who had been in charge of the abductions? More importantly, would Mulder and Scully finally get in bed together? Scattered through the 19 episodes (the fewest of any season), were answers to some of these points. Then as much as possible that remained was packed into the two-hour finale. After 200 episodes, it's just possible that The X-Files overstayed its welcome; nonetheless it will always be remembered for being the most influential TV product of the 1990s. And since this is science-fiction, don't assume it's completely dead either. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

As a fan of this once great show I can say with honesty that this season falls short not only in the absence of David Duchovney (Mulder) but of Gillian Anderson, though she is in this she doesnt seem to be involved a whole lot. Gillian Anderson really doesnt apply herself here and doesnt seem to care about the show anymore which reflects in her occasionally glassy performance. Season 9 should have been the greatest of all with questions to answer that the writers have posed instead there is a lot of stand alone episodes and a 90min series finale...this doesnt answer everything just merely gives us a montage of what we have seen already! Suffice to say the creators of this show could not explain the complex plots they have nurtured over 9 years in a 90min ending!!! A good season though but not great I have my favorite episodes "4D" "William" "Providence" so all isnt doom and gloom just prepare yourself if you are an avid fan of the series especially the mythology episodes. Fans of just the stand alone episodes, fear not there is plenty here and Doggett and Reyes try their best to fill the shoes of our heroes quite well.

This 7-disc collection, sporting some particularly impressive cover art, marks the end of an era for the first ever show to be released on DVD as a season boxset. Many fans of The X-Files would argue that this ninth and final season was a huge downturn for the series as it slowly faded out, but it is extremely important not to let this highly vocal opinion colour your judgement as the season is not all that bad. It certainly matches if not exceeds the creative level the series began with back in its first year.
The premiere episodes, “Nothing Important Happened Today”, mark the point where David Duchovny left the regular cast, not appearing at all until the finale – barring one uncredited cameo. The series coped very well without him thanks to the fine surrounding cast, but the disappearance of his Mulder character was not quite so straightforward and, in the end, pretty poorly handled – he’s just gone. Yet there is still merit in much of the opening story as with the guest appearance of Lucy Lawless (aka Xena Warrior Princess) as a menacing Super Soldier, as well as the performances of new leads Robert Patrick (Doggett) and Annabeth Gish (Reyes).
This trend is continued in a number of strong episodes in the first half of the season with the eerie “Daemonicus”, gory “Hellbound”, and the definite highlights “Trust No 1” and “4-D” – the latter of which marking the return of Assistant Director Brad Follmer, played by Cary Elwes, who was an intriguing shade-of-grey character but unfortunately under-used. However, later episode “Lord of the Flies” is possibly the worst episode in all nine years, and this is probably why Season 9 is rated so poorly (and more than a little unfairly).

Format: DVD
The problem with Season 9 of The X-Files is that it tries so hard to answer the questions raised in previous seasons, that paradoxically it seems to answer nothing at all! The last two episodes "The Truth pt 1&2" promise so much from a series that had such a great production team and cast, but they just do not deliver. As an avid fan you may have spent a decent chunk of your life watching every episode in order, just waiting to see the finale... So when you find out that the only answer revealed is a date for the final alien invasion (that nothing can be done to change!), you can't help but feel that you have ben conned into a serious anti-climax. You are not alone here and you can be forgiven for this because most of the final double-episode is spent in a Military court room anyway, not exactly explosive!

Another negative element of series 9 is that three of the best characters in the show (The Lone Gunmen) are killed off in an episode that really does not need them to die! Chris Carter's spin off series "The Lone Gunmen" only survived one series, but it was an original and highly entertaining series that now cannot be taken any further... Ok you might argue that the two shows could be promoted mutually exclusively, but for true fans the continuity would NEVER hold.

Having said all this, I have given this season 3 stars for a few reasons. Firstly, this series does have some first-rate "Stand-Alone" episodes... the problem is that because it advances too quickly towards a conclusion there are not enough of these episodes. Similarly, although I feel that Robert Patrick is a fine actor and takes on the role of Agent Doggett very effectively, I also feel that his best performances and episode storylines were in Season 8.

Format: DVD
since buying all the x files dvds several years ago, i have watched all the episodes a handful of times, and i love how i forget certain things each time i rewatch episodes - i guess thats what happens when there are so many (over 200) episodes. i have just got to season 9 again, and i forgot how brilliant it is. i was thinking before,.... 'oh no i've got to the end.. just season 9 now without mulder'. but straight away you're hit by the intense storylines, fantastic characters (reyes and doggett) and fantastic stand alones.

i don't care what anyone says... season 9 has some of the greatest "standalones" of the show. with the other seasons, i can look at the episode lists and pick out the episodes i love, and those (small number) which were not so entertaining for me. however, with season 9 i think pretty much every episode is very entertaining and keeps you hooked. in 'trust no1' i feel emotional watching because i really feel scully's pain and her desperation to see mulder. 'william' is also a great mythology episode and very moving. i think season 9 (and season 8) makes your heart ache for scully and all she goes through. on a happier note, monica reyes is such a joy to watch. monica has such a sunny personality and annabeth plays her so well. john and monica's chemistry also keeps you hooked. gillian anderson (and annabeth gish) looks hot in this season. i think she looks better than ever in this season. overall, an amazing set of episodes and you would be crazy not to buy it. 5*+ wow, i've written loads i thought i was going to keep it short and snappy but i can't help it.. there are so many great things to say!!
