Product Description

Product Description

All twenty-five episodes from the second series of the popular science-fiction series presented in a limited-edition box set. In 'Little Green Men' Mulder tries to make contact with a UFO. In 'The Host' Mulder and Scully go down into the New Jersey sewer system in search of a genetic mutant. 'Blood' sees the duo investigate some bizarre small town murders. 'Sleepless' has Mulder meet a man who might just be able to use his dreams to commit murder. 'Duane Barry' brings him face-to-face with a gunman who claims to have been the subject of some alien experiments. In 'Ascension' Mulder searches for a disappeared Scully. '3' has him investigate a bunch of ritualistic murders. And in 'One Breath', he gets closer to solving the mystery of Scully's disappearence. 'Firewalker' finds the agents stalked by a dangerous life form. 'Red Museum' sees them investigate the activities of a sinister religious cult in a remote rural community. In 'Excelsius Dei' they arrive at a nursing home to take on a killer poltergeist. 'Aubrey' sees Mulder and Scully help a pregnant woman who is being stalked by a serial killer. 'Irresistable' finds Mulder pursuing a dangerous fetishist. 'Die Hand die Verletzt' has the duo take on a Satan-worshipping substitute teacher. 'Fresh Bones' introduces them to a voodoo priest who might be able to raise the dead. In the two-part episode 'Colony/Endgame' Mulder uncovers a suprising secret about his sister. 'Fearful Symmetry' finds the agents investigating the mysterious impregnations of rare zoo animals. 'Dod Kalm' has the agents effected by a other-worldly force which causes them to age at an alarming rate. 'Humbug' follows the bizarre events which surround a series of murders in a circus. 'Calusari' concerns a case of exorcism and demonic possession. 'F. Emasculata' sees the agents track down the causes of a viral epidemic which has been unleashed in a prison. 'Soft Light' finds them on the trail of a scientist who has turned his shadow into a means of instant death. 'Our Town' has them look into the ties between a case of cannibalism and the possibility of eternal life. And finally, in 'Anasazi', the duo discover the connection between a series of secret government experiments and a UFO cover-up.

From Amazon.co.uk

Season Two, the 1994-95 run, of The X Files was the one where creator Chris Carter, having had a surprise hit when he expected a one-season wonder, started trying to make sense of all the storylines he had thrown into the pile in the first year. Moreover, he had to cope with Gillian Anderson's maternity leave by having Scully get abducted by aliens (back then, a pretty fresh device) for a few episodes and come back strangely altered. The season also inaugurated the tradition of opening ("Little Green Men") and closing ("Anasazi") with the show's worst episodes, both pot-boiling attempts to keep the alien infiltration/government conspiracy balls up in the air while seeming to offer narrative forward-thrusts or revelations.

But it's also a show noticeably surer of itself than Season One, with its stars reading from the same page in terms of their characters' relationship and attitudes to the wondrous. Scully's no-longer-workable scepticism finally starts to erode in the face of Mulder's increasingly cracked belief. There are fewer marking-time leftover-monster-of-the-week shows--although we do get a human fluke ("The Host"), vampires ("3"), an invisible rapist ("Excelsius Dei") voodoo ("Fresh Bones")--and the flying-saucer stories at last seem to be going somewhere. The powerful two-episode run ("Duane Barry", "Ascension") features Steve Railsback as Mulder's possible future, an FBI agent burned out after a UFO abduction who has become a hostage-taking terrorist, which climaxes with Scully's disappearance into the light. The standout episode is also a stand-alone--"Humbug"--the first and still most successful of the show's self-parodies (written by Darin Morgan, who had played the Flukeman in "The Host"), in which the agents investigate a murder in a circus freakshow, allowing the actors to make fun of the mannerisms they have earnestly built up in a run of solemn, even somnolent, explorations of the murk. Other worthy efforts: "Aubrey", about genetic memory; "Irresistible", a rare (and creepy) straight psycho-chiller with little paranormal content; and "The Calusari", a good ghost/mystery. Rising deputy characters include Nicholas Lea as the perfidious Krycek and Brian Thompson as the shapeshifting alien bounty hunters. Notable guest stars: Charles Martin Smith, C.C.H. Pounder, Leland Orser, Terry O'Quinn, Bruce Weitz, Daniel Benzali, John Savage, Vincent Schiavelli, Tony Shalhoub. --Kim Newman

I actually missed out on the X-Files when it was first on TV, only getting glimpses of occasional episodes. But now since I've started to collect the Season Box Sets, I can't believe what I was missing out on.
Season Two is the X-Files nearing its peek, with the Mythology episodes that follow the recurring government/Alien conspiracy especially strong. This is not always the case in later seasons.
As well as this, there are also notable 'Monster of the week' episodes where the Agents have to investigate numerous unexplainable anomalies, including a creature that lives in the sewer system, a death fetishist, a group of school board members who have a taste for the occult and a dangerous creature that is the result of a circus sideshow.
Obviously as in all seasons, there are weaker episodes. But with the majority of episodes being so strong and well written, it makes it easier to forgive and be able to see the clear assets of the season overall.
As well as the episodes, there are a number of notable characters that are introduced this time round, such as Alex Krycek, Mr X and The Alien Bounty Hunter. All of these are welcome additions.
With the drama and excitement of the season finale 'Anasazi' leaving you almost breathless, you can't wait to get hold of Season 3. Let me assure you, nothing quite prepares you for all the events that take place in the finale.
Overall a brilliant season. 10/10.

I was a big fan of the X files when they were aired during the mid nineties. Unfortunatley when the series first came out on DVD, the Prices were around £70 for just 1 season. But for around £25 you cant go wrong in purchasing this new digi-pak box set. The box set includes 25 episodes spanning over 7 Discs, Which is approximately 1100 minutes of footage including speacial features. This is a huge amount of viewing time for a price of £25. The special features inlude Chris Carter and other production staff comentating on certain episodes. Its fascinating to find out what lengths the crew went to whilst filming the season. Watch out for Scully eating a cockroach!
As i started to view the episodes I instantly realised why this programme was one of the best shows on tv. The special effects, tension, drama, story lines, acting are all amazing. Considering the season was filmed 10 years ago, the special effects are even good viewing by todays standards. Compared to other seasons, the 2nd season was one of the best. Each episode is unique ranging from scullys abduction to mulders discovery of a huge government conspiracy about Aliens. Basically at the end of the day the whole series is extremely entertaining. Even people who have not seen the shows on tv should experience the best sci-fi series ever made. Buy the box set, enjoy it, then save up for season 3.

I was never up on X files, and the closest I got to watching the series was buying those videos in the mid nineties that came in a cool limited edition box. When release on DVD, X-Files was a very expensive series to collect, and at 80 pounds a pop for each one was costly. Now though, they have rereleased them in a new package (better than the old ones and more robust) and still have the same amount of DVD's and features. If you missed the X files, like I did, then here's your opportunity to catch up with one of the best TV series ever made. Featuring 25 episodes on 6 disks and the 7th disc saved for special features, the set is concluded with a 20 page booklet which the 7th disk neatly fits in!
All in all a great set for fans, and an affordable series for those who would like to get into this cool TV programme.

Season one ended on a remerakable cliffhanger, which left a lot of people shocked. As the second season begins, the X-files has been shut down and now Agent Fox Mulder (played brilliantly by David Duchovny) is stuck with routine service work. His partner, Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson on top form) is now working in the acemdemy.
The first season had some very amazing episodes, but thses episodes beat them hands down. Invisible rapists in an old folks home, demonic possesion with little boys, the classic aliens (the best being the three part episodes, Duane Barry, Acension and One Breath) Mulder finnaly meeting the aliens who stole his sister, and more including vampires, parasites, cannibals and freaks.
The best episodes would have to be the scary ones. Season one wasn't scary enough for me, but season two does the trick. Watch out for Die Hand Die Verletzt, Little Green Men and The Calusari.
This season is the only 18 rated season in the entire show. This is because of the exorcism scene in The Calusari, which (annoyingly) doensn't mention on the back. It's not that suitable for kids, either, unlike (in my opinion) the first season.
The best series.

Season Two Of The Hugely Popular X Files Series Comes Spread Over Seven Disc's With a Stunning Blu ray Transfer. The picture is in it's original 4.3 Ratio and fills your TV screen The season picks up straight were season one ended with The X Files closed down and for The first few episodes Fox Mulder ( David Duchovy ) going it alone Trying To resurrect The files of course Dana Scully ( Gillian Anderson ) is never far away. some of The Best episodes That really launched The series into The Big Time is featured on This set including fan favourite episode Irresistible. Extras on The Disc's feature a Season Two introduction by series creator Chris Carter. Deleted scenes in reality Though Nothing new as been added for The Blu ray releases if you already owned The Season's DVD's. One little bit of Down play for me with This release is The Menu for The Disc's you really have To strain To see as you Highlight your choiced episodes They are a bit on The light side with The episodes wording. and it's a safe bet The rest of The Season's Menu's will be The same. The Truth Is Still Out There Though with This release Five Stars. Just A Tad Shy On The Menu Layout.
