Box set containing the entire fourth season of the popular American sci-fi series. In 'Herrenvolk', Mulder attempts to save his dying mother with the assistance of an extraterrestrial healer. 'Unruhe' sees Mulder and Scully on the trail of a killer using psychic photographs. In 'Home', the agents investigate the death of a deformed infant. 'Teliko' sees Mulder and Scully attempting to trace a killer who drains the skin pigmentation from his black victims. In 'The Field Where I Died', Mulder experiences a past life regression while investigating a religious cult. 'Sanguinarium' sees Mulder and Scully on the trail of a murderous plastic surgeon, while in 'Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man', the history of Mulder and Scully's nemesis is traced back to involvement in JFK's assassination and Area 51. In 'Paper Hearts', Mulder attempts to track down the intended victims of a serial killer after several precognisant dreams. 'Tunguska' sees the discovery of a deadly virus contained within a rock. In 'Terma', Mulder joins his old foe Alex Krycek in attempting to gain proof regarding the rock organism. 'El Mundo Gira' sees Mulder and Scully attempting to track down a mythical blood-sucking creature called 'El Chupacabra'. In 'Haddish', they discover a murder which has aparently been committed by a dead man, while 'Never Again' sees Scully indulging in a dangerous affair with a tattooed stranger. In 'Leonard Betts', the body of a decapitated paramedic seemingly comes back to life, while 'Momento Mori' sees Scully attempting to come to terms with the fact that she has inoperable cancer. In 'Unrequited', Mulder and Scully find themselves unable to trace a former Vietnam vet turned murderer who has the ability to become invisible. 'Tempes Fugit' sees the agents making a startling discovery at the bottom of a lake while investigating an airline, and in 'Max', they attempt to prove that the passengers were sacrificed by the government in order to obtain alien technology. 'Synchrony' sees the duo trying to deal with a time travelling killer from the future, while in 'Small Potatoes', a spate of babies born with tails puts Mulder and Scully on the trail of a man with chameleonic abilities. In 'Zero Sum', Skinner helps the cigarette-smoking man destroy evidence in order to save Scully's life, only to find himself accused of murder. 'Elegy' sees ghostly images of female murder victims appearing as harbingers of doom, while in 'Demons', a blood-covered Mulder attempts to recall the events of the last few days when he is overcome by amnesia. Finally, in 'Gethsemane', Mulder attempts to prove that a discovery in the Canadian mountains is evidence of alien life.
In Season 4 of The X-Files, Scully is a bit upset by her on-off terminal cancer and Mulder is supposed to shoot himself in the season finale (did anyone believe that?), but in episode after episode the characters still plod dutifully around atrocity sites tossing off wry witticisms in that bland investigative demeanour out of fashion among TV cops since Dragnet. Perhaps the best achievement of this season is "Home", the most unpleasant horror story ever presented on prime-time US TV. It's not a comfortable show--confronted with this ghastly parade of incest, inbreeding, infanticide and mutilation, you'd think M & S would drop the jokes for once--but shows a willingness to expand the envelope. By contrast, ventures into golem, reincarnation, witchcraft and Invisible Man territory throw up run-of-the-mill body counts, spotlighting another recurrent problem. For heroes, M & S rarely do anything positive: they work out what is happening after all the killer's intended victims have been snuffed ("Kaddish"), let the monster get away ("Sanguinarium") and cause tragedies ("The Field Where I Died"). No wonder they're stuck in the FBI basement where they can do the least damage.
The series has settled enough to play variations on earlier hits: following the liver vampire, we have a melanin vampire ("Teliko") and a cancer vampire ("Leonard Betts"), and return engagements for the oily contact lens aliens and the weasely ex-Agent Krycek ("Tunguska"/"Terma"). Occasional detours into send-up or post-modernism are indulged, yielding both the season's best episode ("Small Potatoes") and its most disappointing ("Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man"). "Small Potatoes", with the mimic mutant who tries out Mulder's life and realises what a loser he is (how many other pin-up series heroes get answerphone messages from their favourite phone-sex lines?), works as a genuine sci-fi mystery--for once featuring a mutant who doesn't have to kill people to live--and as character insight. --Kim Newman

El Mundo Gira
Season 4 is TXF at its best. These 24 episodes are without a doubt amoung the best the show has ever produced. And the best amoung these 24? Tempus Fugeit, Max, Tunguska, Terma, Gethsemane, Home, The Field Where I Died, Elegy and (damn, can't remember the name) - the one with a spooky photographer. Buy this now. The best all-round season!!!
This season won several Emmy awards, and deservedly so. Although it remained a great show, I don't believe it was ever again quite so consistently good as this season.
Memento Mori, Paper Hearts, Never Again, Demons, Home, Tunguska/Terma, Tempus Fugit/Max
Episodes I remember not liking, but enjoyed this time round:
Never Again, Kaddish
El Mundo Gira - goatsuckers, indeed.
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!
It was in this year that the writers were doubly busy while producing another series 'Millennium'. It's amazing therefore that season 4 even made it at all.
This boxet contains some of the most ground-breaking stories to date, such as the almost-banned 'Home' and the most-watched-ever episode 'Leonard Betts'.
Midway through the season there's a 2-part offering that sets up key storylines that go on into the movie and beyond. For this reason, season 4 is an essential purchase for any X-Phile!
There's a higher than usual amount of serial-killer episodes, but this serves only as a good thing and marks a good change of pace after a mutant-esque season 3.
If you're a Scully-fan there's an ongoing crisis for the character this year, that's sure to have you reaching for the hankies. The origins of this story arc go way back into season 2 and shape the entire direction of the series from now on.
What I found to be really great about season 4 is that it's a good one for character development. We learn a lot more about Mulder's past in one early episode, and we even get a look at the previous evil-deeds of the Cancer-Man.
That's got to be worth buying the set for alone!
If there's one downfall t this season, it would have to be a slight repetition in some of the stories. This is understandable though, as there is only so much paranormal ground that can be covered.Read more ›

Really happy with the the item in good condition for pre owned, thank you.Published 17 days ago by Aaron
A combination of fascination and irritation. It can get highly pretentious/obscure, and why must Scully always look as if she had a blunt instrument up her arse-end? Read morePublished 6 months ago by A.J.Bradley
