The Last of the Vintage X-Files,
By A Customer
This review is from: X Files Season 4 Box Set [DVD]  (DVD)
This great season of the X-Files really does start as it means to go on. In the opening episode, "Herronvolk", we are thrown straight into some great action as Mulder and Scully are thrown into battle with the alien bounty hunter. The thrills never stop as plenty of episodes concentrate on the conspiracy.
Events take a surprising turn when the long suffering Scully is diagnosed with cancer in the magnificent episode "Momento Mori". This marks a further turning point in her relationship with Mulder as their bond to each other grows stronger. The chemistry between these two characters has always been one of the highlights of the show and it is explored even more throughout this season.
Another great highlight is the episode "Musings of a Cigrette Smoking Man", where we get to see the evil Smoking Man as we have never seen him before. There's also a great episode devoted to Skinner in "Zero Sum".
While the conspiracy episodes are great, there are pretty good stand alone episodes too, such as "Paper Hearts", "Leonard Betts", "Home" and the hilarious "Small Potatoes".
The fourth season of the X-Files contains the last of the classic episodes as the quality begins to slip in later seasons. Make sure you don't miss it!
