5.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the best., 5 Mar 2006
This review is from: The X Files: Season 2 [DVD] [1994] (DVD)
This season of the X-files shows how the series could go from stand-alone episodes in season to 1, and expand on it in season 2, to larger story arcs and better strories to tell. This X-files season is quite possible one of the best seasons of the show.
The first episode picks up after the last episode 'The erlenmyer flask' and it shows Mulder and Scully still off the x-files. It brings us back to a more alien story. This sort of sets us up for a bigger story arc which would come later: 'Duane Barry' is probably the first proper mythology episode. It sets us up for a huge story-arc. It continues on in 'Ascention' with Scully's abduction and concludes in 'One breath' with Scully's resurrection. These three episodes are three of the most stunning episodes, and have to be viewed. Another mythology two-parter is 'Colony/End game' which introduces one of my favourite villains: the alien bounty hunter. It deals with the Earth's colonization and the bounty hunter is after the clones. It also gives us more information of Mulder's sister's abduction. 'Anasazi' is the season finale which is fantastic, as it gives more insight to the governments involvement with aliens.
The stand-alone episodes are also great in the season. A popular episode is 'The host' which deals with a large fluke-worm which is roaming the New Mexico sewers. In 'Sleepless' Mulder investigates the deaths of green beret soldiers who participated in a sleep expermient. This episode also introduces one of the most popular chracters: Alex Krycek. 'Red museam' concludes the story of Deep Throat's death. 'Die hand die verletzt' is one of the scariest x-files and 'Humbug' introduces the show to a comedic route. Though, a few episodes are weak: 'Firewalker', 'Aubrey' and 'Fresh bones' but most of the episodes are great. 'The calusari' is apparently the episode which makes this season an '18' rating, but frankly the episode isn't so bad. It could easily be a '15'.
This season is probably superior to season 1, as most of the stand-alones have interesting ideas. There is a larger amount of aliens in this season, many chracters are more involved more such as Skinner and Cigarette smoking man. If you liked season 1, you will love this also.
