5.0 out of 5 stars Revisit the magic!, 28 Oct. 2004
This review is from: The X Files: Season 1 [DVD] [1994] (DVD)
I was a dedicated x-filer - and shipper! The show is probably my all-time favourite, and now finally I can afford to own all series on dvd (previous packaging and prices were totally prohibitive!)
I came to the show late - I didn't twig it until season 3, and I had to rely on reruns to get a taste of series 1 and 2. Although I loved it to the end, watching the first series again reminds me of how good it was when it started. It's pacy, well-written and beautifully acted. Watching the budding 'relationship' between the sceptic Scully and believer Mulder is an eye-opener. Before the audience - and the series' writers - became obsessed with a potential romance between the two, Mulder and Scully's relationship was a very believable and touching friendship. I must admit that I lost interest once Chris Carter kept teasing us with hit-and-miss moments. Also, the storylines of the first series were crisper and simpler - the later complicated conspiracy theories and send-up comedic episodes rather weakened the impact.
Don't get me wrong - even when it had 'jumped the shark' (refer to [...] - a fantastic website, for explanation)the x files was still the best show on the box. But revisiting the early episodes is a great reminder of how wonderful it truly was.
