Season highlights include:
HUNGRY - An episode told entirely from the vantage point of a real-life monster working in a fast food restaurant, who just cannot control his hunger for human brains. A really interesting and well-written episode which makes you sympathise for the character as he is pursued by Mulder and Scully.
MILLENNIUM - Chris Carter's other show "Millennium" finally crosses over with "The X Files" as Mulder and Scully try to enlist the help of Frank Black to stop some former members of the Millennium group from being resurrected and fulfilling a dark prophecy about the end of the world in the year 2000.
ORISON - A long overdue sequel to Season 2' "Irresistible", as death fetishist Donnie Pfaster escapes from prison and the memories of Scully's abduction by him come back to haunt her. As disturbing as the original.
THE AMAZING MALEENI - A truly funny episode as the agents investigate the death of a decapitated magician who moments before his death, performed the amazing trick of turning his head a complete 360 degrees.
SIGNS AND WONDERS - Investigating the death of a man who died from repeated snake bites but with no traces of any snakes, Mulder and Scully come to investigate a group of religious fanatics who test their faith through the handling of dangerous snakes only to find that darker forces are at work.
X COPS - "The X Files" done in the style of famous American reality police show "COPS" as the agents investigate a spate of mysterious deaths and attacks by an unknown creature in a rundown, crime-ridden area of Los Angeles.
FIRST PERSON SHOOTER - In a new virtual reality game, one of the players is slain by a female character Maitreya who was not originally in the program, prompting Mulder to try the game for himself and flush out the assailant who by all means, does not exist.
EN AMI - The Cigarette Smoking Man offers Scully a deal to retrieve a disc containing information about a possible miracle cure for all disease but can he be trusted?
HOLLYWOOD A.D - Mulder and Scully visit Hollywood where a film of their exploits on the X Files is being shot, with Garry Shandler and Tea Leoni (David Duchovny's wife in real life) playing them to hilarious results.
REQUIEM - The season finale where the agents return to Bellefleur, Oregon, the site of their first ever X File to find a spate of new abductions are taking place. Meanwhile, the CSM enlists Krycek to find the alien craft hiding in Bellefleur before Mulder and Scully do.
The extras are the usual that you would come to expect from an X Files boxset. The commentaries on certain episodes and the documentary "The Truth About Season 7" are the most interesting although none of them include David Duchonvy or Gillian Anderson talking about their roles or the episodes which I found dissapointing. There are also the usual Special Effects featurettes and the original FOX TV trailers for each episode. A DVD-ROM game based on "First Person Shooter" has been included as well though as yet I have been unable to get it working on my PC!! All in all, however, a strong season of the show that is well worth buying.
