sooo good, in a different way to the other seasons,
This review is from: The X Files: Season 9 [DVD] (DVD)
since buying all the x files dvds several years ago, i have watched all the episodes a handful of times, and i love how i forget certain things each time i rewatch episodes - i guess thats what happens when there are so many (over 200) episodes. i have just got to season 9 again, and i forgot how brilliant it is. i was thinking before,.... 'oh no i've got to the end.. just season 9 now without mulder'. but straight away you're hit by the intense storylines, fantastic characters (reyes and doggett) and fantastic stand alones.
i don't care what anyone says... season 9 has some of the greatest "standalones" of the show. with the other seasons, i can look at the episode lists and pick out the episodes i love, and those (small number) which were not so entertaining for me. however, with season 9 i think pretty much every episode is very entertaining and keeps you hooked. in 'trust no1' i feel emotional watching because i really feel scully's pain and her desperation to see mulder. 'william' is also a great mythology episode and very moving. i think season 9 (and season 8) makes your heart ache for scully and all she goes through. on a happier note, monica reyes is such a joy to watch. monica has such a sunny personality and annabeth plays her so well. john and monica's chemistry also keeps you hooked. gillian anderson (and annabeth gish) looks hot in this season. i think she looks better than ever in this season. overall, an amazing set of episodes and you would be crazy not to buy it. 5*+ wow, i've written loads i thought i was going to keep it short and snappy but i can't help it.. there are so many great things to say!!
