Product Description

Box set containing the entire ninth (and last?) season of the popular sci-fi drama. In 'Nothing Important Happened Today: Part 1' Scully, who is now teaching at the FBI Academy, is asked to help Agent Doggett investigate the death of an EPA official. 'Nothing Important Happened Today: Part 2' sees Scully's baby, William, betraying signs of not being entirely human and Doggett decides to ask a few pertinent questions. In 'Demonicus' the murder of a West Virginina couple leads Agents Doggett and Reyes to a doctor who has been committed to a mental institute. '4-D' sees Doggett lying in hospital after being shot, and Reyes accused of his shooting by the murderer Irwin Lukesh. In 'Lord of the Flies' Scully is asked by Doggett and Reyes to help investigate the weird death of a man during a stunt on a local cable reality show, after flies are seen pouring out of the dead man's eye sockets. In 'Trust No 1' Scully is approached by a couple claiming their baby has the same powers as William, but they will only talk to Agent Mulder. Scully has to decide whether to contact him and put his life at risk. In 'John Doe' Doggett wakes up to find himself in a Mexican jail and suffering amnesia. Scully and Reyes join forces to try and track him down. In 'Hellbound' Reyes is called in to investigate the death of a man who has been skinned alive after suffering from visions of other people suffering the same fate. Reyes calls on Scully's expertise. 'Provenance' sees Scully having to take drastic measures to protect her child after pieces of the spaceship that landed in Africa begin to resurface. In 'Providence' Scully has to try and track down her son's kidnappers after the FBI fail to find them. However, she finds out a bit more than she would like about her son's captors. In 'Audrey Pauley' weird things begin to happen after Reyes has a car crash. 'Underneath' sees an old case of Doggett's return after the man who was convicted is released from prison. Doggett is convinced the right man was caught and, now released, could kill again. But Scully and Reyes have their doubts. In 'Improbable', Burt Reynolds guest starring as the mysterious Mr Burt. 'Scary Monsters' sees Doggett and Reyes investigating the murder of a woman after her son is convinced that a monster killed her. 'Jump the Shark' sees the Agents calling up the help of The Lone Gumen to find Yves Adele Harlow. In 'William', directed by David Duchovny, a seriously disfigured man is discovered by Doggett trying to steal from the X-files office. Could this man be connected to Mulder or even be Mulder himself? Meanwhile, Scully has to seriously think about sending William away for his own safety. In 'Release', after a series of murders, an FBI cadet approaches the Agents saying he knows that the suspect was also responsible for the death of Doggett's son. In the 200th episode, 'Sunshine Days' a murder is committed outside the house where 'The Brady Bunch' was filmed. Doggett and Reyes are called in to investigate but come up against the house's owner, who is obsessed with the show. Finally, 'The Truth' is the tense final episode of this long-running paranoia-at-the-highest-level FBI drama series. Mulder escapes from a Government weather complex in a final attempt to uncover the truth about government collusion in the use of alien viruses. But he is captured and held in a military prison awaiting trial. Skinner offers to represent him and has to call Scully to the stand to defend Mulder. Mulder drops the 'I'm brianwashed' act and admits that he has found something significant in Mexico but can't say what. But the military find Mulder guilty and he must face death by lethal injection. Mulder and Scully escape (or are they being allowed to?), to uncover the truth that Mulder has discovered in the Mexico desert. The cigarette smoking man is there, and he is prepared to impart the final awful truth that awaits planet Earth.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Final Season of an Oustanding Series 26 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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).

3.0 out of 5 stars Truth or Hate 9 July 2007
Format:DVD
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.

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.

The X-files is probably one of my favourite shows. After each season, something seems to happen to them. With seasons 6 and 7 they be come a bit more comedic. Season 8 shows us a change in chracters with John Doggett. Season 8 also went back to its horror roots. Season 9 is more of the same as season 8, yet it is not as superior. Scully (Gillian Anderson) is reduced to a smaller role in this season. She now seems like a minor charcter, like Skinner. Agent Doggett and Agent Reyes are basically the new main charcters. John Doggett seemed to have a smaller role in season 8, but now he gets his time to shine. In my opinion he is a very misunderstood charcter and it great to watch. Agent Reyes is decent, she's not great, but she ain't too bad either. Annabeth Gish does a good job at playing her.
The season opens up with 'Nothing important happened today' which is a two-parter. It is decent, and it gives us a bit more info about the new super-soldier story-line. Other mythology ones which follow are 'Trust no 1' which deals with Mulder's disappearence, which is quite an exciting episode. 'Provenance/Providence' is an OK episode which goes deep into the mysteries involving Scully's son William. 'Willaim' is another episode involving her son, and it also brings us back an old character.
The stand-alone episodes are probably the best thing about the season. 'Scary monsters' is a personal favourite for me, which deals with a freaky little boy. 'Audrey Pauley' is an episode to do with Agent Reyes fighting for her life. 'Underneath' is a straight-ahead horror story which includes a bit of Agent Doggetts past. 'Improbable' is a fun episode in which Burt Reynolds stars as possibly god himself.
