the 7th x.,
This review is from: X Files: Season 7 [DVD] (DVD)
By season 7 , this hit show had already had a major movie which did ok. And it had become part of popular culture like few other shows had ever done.
Even today many of this shows themes live on or were popularized. Like alien abductions , which was a fringe idea. This season had more light hearted eps than usual. But there were still plenty more serious ones. It's a very good season. BUT, it is not as good by far than any series that came before it. FOr that reason some viewers were unhappy with it. Which is a mistake , taken on it's own, it's the x files and it still has a lot of great episodes in here. THe unnatural is one of the better ones and it barely features the two leads in it! But there's not a bad episode here. It's just a lot fewer great ones. The next series was much stronger. Series 8 returned the show back to pure greatness. But this one is well worth watching. You will notice a decline in some episodes but that's to be expected. So many fans rate this as the second weakest series after series 9. Which is true but a weaker x files series is a lot better than many shows best! there's a solid season here of good shows and that's good enough for this fan. The dvd sets look better too because they were shot in widescreen and on higher grade film.
