Finally, in 'Gethsemane', Mulder attempts to prove that a discovery in the Canadian mountains is evidence of alien life.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

Format: DVD
Generally a very strong, mature season, a close second to Season three. The mythology storyline mostly takes a welcome break from the confusing colonisation / cloning story and takes a backseat to the stand-alone episodes. Fortunately these are mostly excellent with some great thrillers, monsters and a "back to basics" UFO story in "Tempus Fugit" / "Max". Production values and effects are excellent, and all episodes are well-crafted without being too slick. Arguably the highlight of the season is the revelation of Scully's cancer and Gillian Anderson's touching performances bring a lot of emotional depth to this storyline. Some lighter episodes are more than welcome in what is generally quite a serious and solemn season, but none are as good as Darin Morgan's genius work on season three.
Best episodes:
Gethsemane
Home

Sorry, but Bad Blood isn't in this boxset (that was a season 5 ep). Season 4 however is probably the best season of XF in my opinion. There is a wonderful mix of brilliant stand-alone eos, and all the mythology eps are totally brilliant. It's a shame really that in season 5 the mythology had been reduced to annoying 'talking-head' shows (not to mention the introduction of such blase characters as Agents Spender & Fowley, and Cassandra Spender).
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 is my favourite year of The X-Files. The average episodes are great, and the best are simply outstanding. There is serious drama, particularly for Scully's character. Episodes like Home and Sanguinarium are particularly creepy, whilst others develop the Smoking Man's character, or the possibilities surrounding Samantha Mulder's disappearance.

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.

Favourites:

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

Weak points:

El Mundo Gira - goatsuckers, indeed.

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!

Many fans believe that it is in season 4 that The X-Files really hit its peak. It's easy to see why, with this marathon of episodes leading up to a shocking conclusion!
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.
