Product Description

Product Description

Feature-length sci-fi adventure put together from two Season Eight episodes ('Essence' and 'Existence') of the popular television show. Whilst Scully is preparing for the birth of her child, others are also making their own preparations behind the scenes, including Krycek and the nurse hired by Scully's mother. Meanwhile, Mulder has to contend with Billy Miles, who has been transformed into a new kind of alien and is probably after Scully's baby. When Scully and Agent Reyes (Annabeth Gish) disappear to a secret location, they are visited by aliens who claim that Scully's baby is rightfully theirs.

From Amazon.co.uk

The pretentiously titled Existence is another two-part X-Files yarn glued together to make a feature-length episode. Here the story concerns the birth of Scully's perhaps-alien-tinged child and proves the old maxim that you should stop watching any series when the characters start having babies. By now, newbie Robert Patrick is settled into the role of Agent Doggett, Scully's new partner on the X-Files, but David Duchovny's contract negotiations have enabled Fox Mulder, no longer in the FBI, to come back and hang about the delivery, clashing and then bonding with his replacement. The action content comes from a mild-mannered alien abductee transformed into an unstoppable killing machine, ripping through everything as he tries to prevent the upcoming nativity for reasons that (as ever) don't quite become clear. Also in the support cast are semi-regular Nicholas Lea as lurking plot-explaining conspirator Alex Krycek, and the more welcome Annabeth Gish, whose interestingly spiritual Agent Monica Reyes is being worked up as a replacement for Scully when Gillian Anderson gets out of her contract. Weirdly, The X-Files is in pretty good shape for a show that's been running this long--the performances and the direction are still strong, and outside the "continuing story" shows individual episodes hold up well. But this dreary muddle of running about (plus the odd decapitation) and agonised rumination (blathery philosophical musings about the miracle of life and childbirth) does not represent the series' strengths, suggesting that the best thing that could happen would be to get shot of the long-time stars and their played-out characters to make room for a revitalised show starring Patrick and Gish.

On the DVD: The full-screen print, with the extra detail of the DVD image and Dolby Digital, allow you to pick up a lot more than from the murky telecasts. "Alex Krycek Revealed" Parts 1 and 2, a couple of character profiles, turn out to be very snippet-like Fox TV promo pieces, with some interview footage and behind-the-scenes stuff amid the usual teaser clips.--Kim Newman

After the moaning and groaning of some fans before season 8, saying things like "ahhh its all over, mulders gone and the show will go bad", how wrong they were. Season 8 was (in my opinion) one of the finest seasons in the shows history, creating some wonderful new characters and brilliant episodes like (alone, per manum) and this 2 part finale entitled "existance". This is a brilliant finale with more twists and turns and some really exciting moments. My favourite scenes were between doggett and mulder as these characters are so different from one another but seem to work off eachother perfectly. The ever beautiful and brilliant Gillian Anderson turns in another fine performance, as does David Duchovny. Annabeth Gish really makes here mark in these two episodes, but i have to take my hat off to Robert Patrick who entered the lions den at the start of the season and has come up trumps, never missing a chance to shine :) ***** stars

Once you see these episodes, it's hard not to imagine them as the final two of the show as a whole. They symbolise everything that has made The X-Files one of the best, if not the best, shows of our time. The final scene will go down in history and it would be hard to imagine a more poignent ending for an amazing series. The chemistry between Mulder and Scully has never neeb so intense and moving. It should have been the end of the show.
Of course it isn't and Chris Carter has insisted on making another series but this video is a must for all true X-Philes and indeed anyone who recognises its true excellence. This is the ultimate X-File and for many fans will be the last true X-File. Buy it.

Season Eight of The X-Files was a huge suprise, and the two part season finale Essence/Existence did not disapoint.
Keeping in line with the 'look' of Season 8, its very dark, moody, violent and quite gory too. Its also very action-packed, and manages to fit in great performances from Gillian Anderson, Robert Patrick, Annabeth Gish, Mitch Pillegi and David Duchovny. There are moments of tension, of shock, of suprise and of satisfaction.
Despite some complaints I've heard about the ending, this is The X-Files at it's best. In fact, it cements Season 8 as a groundbreaking addition to the show, and a real return to form. In many ways, it is the last 'true' X-file - with the departure of Duchovny, things'll never be the same again, but I'm already looking forward to the 'new' X-Files of Season Nine.....

The two-part season 8 finale Essence/Existence has to be at the top of it's peak, packed full of suspense, excitement, horror, blood & gore. But never fear, there is a happy ending. Mulder moves in for the end scene to top all end scenes. Season 8 has definitely proved to us that The X-Files is still one of the world's finest TV shows. A certain must for ALL X-Files fans!!

Wow. The 8th season finale certainly lived up to all the expectations - especially that finale scene. Lots of action and enough twists to keep Chubby Checker dizzy, it was enthralling from start to finish. Whether the 9th season will be able to live up to the eight that went before it without Mulder, only time will tell, but this x-phile believes that the show will lose some of its magic (after all Mulder IS the x-files) and that these episodes would have made a brilliant and fitting finale to the series. However nothing should be detracted from this DVD - it is worth every penny and i loved it!

With colonisation halted once, a new threat is about to begin. A new breed of hunters are working with the Aliens and they are unstoppable. There goal at all cost's is to take Scully's child yet unborn. This has all the elements you expect from an X-files end of season video but is let down a little by an anticlimatic ending. AD Skinner gets a little irrate with Krychek in this one. Quite possibly the best scene in the video. If you are an X-file fan then it is unmissible but if you are a casual viewer it would be advisable to watch Requim then Dead Alive before this so that you know what is going on.

As a Sky veiwer I have already seen the eps. I would advice all X Philes to buy it. It is full of all the action of a useral X files mith arc Ep as the Agents try to protect Scully and her unborn child or could it be alien. THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE!

This one will keep you on the edge of your seat - the best x-file yet. The action never stops with so many twists and turns you head will be reeling! Finally Scully's 'situation' is resolved, yet Chris Carter STILL manages to leave us with more questions to mull over! A decidedly soppy but beautiful ending makes this a must for everyone, but especially for Shippers like me - have the hankey's ready!
