The conspiracy begins
The X-Files became a suprise hit globally, eventually running for 202 episodes and nine seasons. Season One laid the foundations for what the show would become; starting the mythology (with a much tighter focus than later seasons) and establishing the ambiguity of the standalone cases.
Much of Season One can be applauded; for its time and genre, production values were high, acting spot on, and it gave mass-audiences something besides the predictable. In my opinion, the episodes aren't of a consistently high quality. There are many so-so/poor episodes, such as "Space", "Gender Bender", "Roland", "Lazarus", "Young At Heart". But then there are some episodes that still stand out as being amongst the finest the show has produced; "Squeeze", "Ice", "Beyond The Sea", "Eve" and "The Erlenmeyer Flask" are my personal faves of the season.
Although shaky in places and not quite the complete package deleivered over the coming years, Season One of The X-Files is still high quality television and an essential starting point for non-fans.
The start of a great series...
If you want the X-Files were it all began, go for this boxset. Within you'll find all 24 episodes from the first season, nicely packaged in a sturdy little box, which will impress your mates no end.
But wait... inside the box there's more. 24 fantastic episodes iontroducing you to the world of Mulder and Scully. Be prepared for chills and goosebumps as the fanous duo investigate UFOs, ghosts, werewolves, and anything else you can label with an X.
But be warned... this isn't your typical sci-fi show. The success is partly due to it's down-to-earth, rational viewpoint. Instead of giving you the answers, the viewer is expected to ponder whether what actually happenned did happen. Skeptics and believers alike will be enthralled by the show.
Fab series. And it gets better...
The beginning of an amazing series...
Where it all started, the very first series. Despite not being the best, it still manages to create an impact unlike any other shows out there at the time. Beautifully arranged and designed, this limited edition set is a true limited collectors item. Mulder and Scullys relationship begins to grow, and we get a taster of things to come. Every episode stands out, rather than having two or three parters about alien abductions or government conspiracies. My favourite episodes are squeeze, gender bender, ice, the elemeyer flask, shapes, and many more. In fact, there isnt a bad episode. Buy this now, before it disappears forever!!
