Product Description

Product Description

All twenty four episodes from the third season of the X Files in the correct order (unlike the BBC airing of the stories). The season kicks off with the concluding parts of the cliffhanger from the previous year and continues with stories of reincarnation, witches, astral projection and the 'mythology' shows - the underlying conspiracy story arc - 'The Blessing Way', 'Paper Clip', 'Nisei', '731', 'Piper Maru', 'Apocrypha', 'Wet Wired' and cliffhanging season finale 'Talitha Cumi'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Focused lightning bolts, stigmata, possession, and ancient curses become secondary in Season 3 of The X-Files as more episodes are devoted to pursuing the increasingly complex story threads. "The Blessing Way" is an explosive start, introducing the Syndicate's well-manicured man (John Neville), while Scully's sister Melissa is shot and Mulder experiences Twin-Peaks-like prophetic visions. We learn of medical records of millions, including Scully, who have been experimented upon ("Paper Clip"): the fast-paced train-bound two-parter "Nisei" and "731" suggests the experiments are about alien hybridisation. Krycek turns out to be hosting an alien in the next double-act, "Piper Maru" and "Apocrypha", in which Skinner is shot by Melissa's killer. Two great one-offs outside the arc are "Clyde Bruckman's "Final Repose", a bittersweet tale of foreseeing death (featuring an Emmy-winning performance from Peter Boyle) and Jose Chung's " From Outer Space", a spoof of alien conspiracy theories through an author's investigations into abductees. --Paul Tonks

Format: DVD
Definately the best season of any TV show in existence. And you want to talk conspiracy theory. There are a load of two parters to bring the idea of extra-terrestrial life right home. "The Blessing Way" and "Paper Clip" are absolutely brilliant as they conclude the three parter that was started with Season 2's finale "Anasazi". Skinner gets more involved in this season and we see other conspiracy episodes such as "Nisei", "731", "Piper Maru", "Apocrypha" and "Talitha Cumi". But also it has several brilliant stand alone episodes such as "Jose Chung's From Outer Space", "Quagmire", "War of the Coprophages" and "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" (which has a brilliant performance by the actor who plays Clyde Bruckman). This season is one for people who have seen Seasons 1 and 2 but you really don't have to have as everything is pretty much explained to you (if you know at least about Scully's abduction in season 2). Buy this box set and you won't be able to wait for Season 4!

The X-Files really found its footing with the onset of its second season & saw an almost doubling in viewing figures between the end of season 1 and the start of seaosn 2.
Despite now being 8 years old these episodes are as impressive now as they were watching them on tv, first time round. Every episode is clever, slick, imagenative and slightly creepy (or very creepy in the cases of: 'Die Hand Die Verletz' and 'The Calusari').
Highlights from season 2 include:
Duane Barry (for which Chris Carter was emmy nominated for outstanding writing)
One Breath (which sees Scully's return after her abduction)
Red Museum,
Fresh Bones,
Humbug (in my opinion 1 of the few comedic episodes that actually works),
F. Emasculata (gross but brilliant),
Our Town (it'll put you off chicken for sure),
& the best season finalé of the entire 9 seasons - Anasazi.

This DVD box set is an excellent way to enjoy Season 2 of the X-Files in the correct episode order and with many extras such as deleted scenes. To me, this is the series when the format really began to work. The characters of Mulder and Scully were fully developed and the supporting cast were firmly in place.
It does take nearly 19 hours to watch all 25 episodes on these 7 discs in one sitting and so I guess it will only be true X-philes who will have the staying power to watch in this way. I recommend watching one or two episodes at once and take time to view the special features and play the DVD-ROM game on disc 7.
I look forward to the release of season 3 which is equally as good in the near future.

Format: DVD
The second season of the X-files marks the perfect combination of the continued mythology episodes and the individual investigations, by consistently delivering original, intriguing and exciting plot twists. Building on the success of the first season, Chris Carter and his team were able to begin to expand and explore Mulder and Scully's relationship, but it is in the variety of the subject matter of each episode and the film-like production quality on display which really impresses in this season.
The first highlight is that of the two part episode - 'Duane Barry' and 'Ascension' which use the traditional UFO abduction formula but throws Scully into the action (the start of major plot advancements in later seasons).
Gillian Anderson's pregnancy in real life resulted in her presence being restricted in some episodes but this does not detract from the overall flow of the season.
Another stand out is that of 'Humbug' involving a circus mutant which uses scare tactics and humour for one of the first times in the X-Files, indicating a new direction for later seasons where irony and sarcasm are played upon to less success.
The DVD format of course provides instant access to each episode but it is the picture quality which is particularly impressive. Although the sound is only in stereo this does not detract from the tense atmosphere created by the stunning and eerie locales. When I bought this package I knew it was expensive but it is a long term investment to savour and enjoy and well worth the expense.

Never was there a show better developed than the X-files and when it came to season three it was a major hit.
And the fact that FOX started to give X-Files more money is definatly noticeable when compared to prior seasons these sets and this quality mixed with still original writing of original ideas probably made this one of the best things out there in the magical world of tv.
The better sets and quality reflects on the speciality of the episodes and obviously made it easier for the actors to get into their roles.
Duchovny and Anderson get into their roles much better than the prior seasons.
It's better than the earlier ones simply visual.
And better than the latter because most the writing and ideas were a lot more original.
The myth apisodes are in one word grand and not boring even though the later ones would definatily become just that.
Questions are raised but not forgotten. A definate must for every lover of good t.v.
The package is beautifuland even though the price would seem high to some people the 1080 minutes of spedtacluar tv are definatly worth it!
