This book (whilst Volume 6) covers the entirety of season seven of one of TV's most consistently popular and thought-provoking TV shows. For any fan of the show this episode guide is an essential buy - season seven - the season in question is the last "classic" season of this wonderful show; that is it is the last which features just David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as he two main leads. The main reason behind this is because DD decided to take a break from the show for a while after completing season 7 - hence Mulder is abducted in the season finale, "Requiem" - it is vital you buy this guide now not only to enjoy those wonderful moments from one of the most comical seasons of the show - but also to find out what politics were going on behind the scenes and find out the full story behind why DD ultimately chose to quit the show.
This Official Guide follows the same kind of format as the previous one, 'The End and the Beginning' and it works as well as all the previous Guides. The plot summary sections take up the majority of the book, but the 'backstory' notes are also present. If you're looking for a guide to the episodes, also containing a bit of backstory, you couldn't do much better than this. It serves as an admirably in-depth cover of the episodes involved. All in all, this is probably the definitive guide to the seventh season.
The x-files has gained massive cult status around the world and appeals to any sci-fi, fantasy or paranormal fanatic, and so will this book. It is the ultimate companion to series 6 (undoubtably the best!) and is a must-have for any x-phile. I recommend this book to any one who watched the series or who is just interested in the paranormal!
