I'll be honest here, Brian Lowry's books were mediocre to the point of frustrating, and this is a definite step up from the rather pathetic norm. Season 4 is in my opinion, the darkest and most darkly terrifying of any series, and so even if you can't get your hands on a box-set (They're very rare now) you can still read about some of the superb stand-alones in Season 4. Andy Meisler dedicates 10 pages to each episode, with the majority of that being the summary, but a couple of pages of 'back story', fascinating things about the making of each episodes (Brian Lowry, your time is up! What were you thinking?! TWO pages an episode?!!! That's criminal!!!!) Anyone who has read my fanatical reviews of box-sets on Amazon.co.uk will know that I'm obsessed, but this was the thing that got me really obsessed. Now I own every boxset. You can too. Buy it, and read it for many nights to come... Eat X-FILES. Sleep X-FILES. Drink COCA-C...no, wait, X-FILES!
