The Mythology Delves Deeper!, 6 Mar. 2006
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.
