Customer Review

on 19 August 2008
the X files is one of the best tv shows ever created, and with the new movie coming out the idea for this dvd release is good, it will give none X Philes the chance to see some of the shows stand-alone stories

but i can't fathom how you can have a collection of 8 definitive X Files episodes and not include either one of the episodes Tooms or Squeeze. these are by far at least one of the most "definitive" X Files episodes and has been voted by fans as a favourite numerous times.

but they have included the questionable "Post Modern Prometheus" - a special all black and white take on the Frankenstein story with no cannonicity with the rest of the series - it is unarguably a unique and special episode, but it's definitely not one that should be seen by someone who's never seen the show before.

also included is the comedy episodes Bad Blood and Triangle. these rare comedy episodes of the X Files are undoubtedly hilarious, but only to fans of the X Files, someone who hasn't seen that many might be left thinking every episode is like these. they are definitely not "definitive" X Files episodes.

in all i would recommend this to people who are fans of the show but not fans enough to buy a season box set. otherwise i really don't see any point in purchasing this dvd, if only for the extras.
a hardcore fan of the show will likely already have these episodes and more on dvd or would rather get a season box set, and a non-fan of the show shouldn't see these episodes without seeing many others beforehand.
