Overview

The X-Files - Season 1

Fans of The X-Files have something to smile about with the release of the entire first season in a seven-disc box set. Each of these 24 episodes are presented in 1.33:1 full-frame and feature solid colors and black levels throughout. While some of the black colors tend to be almost too dark, overall, Fox's presentation of each episode is very nice. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 in English. These soundtracks are subdued with only moments of surround use in the front and center speakers. Otherwise, each mix is clear of any excessive hiss or distortion. No subtitles are included on these discs. The seventh disc of this set has a few extra features, starting with the intriguing "The Truth Behind Season One," an 11-minute short featuring interviews with creator Chris Carter; producers Daniel Sackheim, Paul Rabwin, and Howard Gordon; director David Nutter; special effects supervisor Mat Beck; composer Mark Snow; and many cast members. Twelve interviews (each running roughly three to five minutes) with creator Carter offer some insight and thoughts into each episode. Finally, there are some promotional materials (including TV spots and "Behind the Truth" FX TV spots), two deleted scenes, special effects outtakes, some DVD-ROM content, and excerpts of the pilot episode in German, Spanish, French, and Italian languages.

The first season of the X-file is engaging and informative of how the rest of the show progresses. When I was younger I would watch the show now and then. As an adult, I find myself compelled to watch every episode. I really enjoy the weekly monster episodes and they remain my favorite. However, the alien episodes are great and entertaining as well. In the first season the inter personal relationship between Fox and Dana is fascinating as they are just getting to know each other. They play the roles very well. I highly enjoy watching the first season over and over again. I recommend that newbies to the X-files start at the beginning. The characters in the X-files are complex and are played by great actors and actresses. The effects in the X-files are not subpar either, they are nicely done.

If you're a fan, you have to own the season collections. I became a fan around the third or fourth season, so it was really fun watching these old episodes. I had seen some of them when they were rerun, but it was nice to see them in chronological order. You get to see Duchovny and Anderson really grow as actors. They get better as each season passes. In this collection, you get to see them younger, tanless, and a little fashionless (i.e., government-wear). Now I need to watch the next season!

This is one of the best things that has ever crossed paths with television. Every episode resonates with intrigue and power, sometimes leaving questions unanswered and making the experience even better. The ideas are believably explained and are taken seriously. Although none of this could ever be true, it makes you wonder if this what would happen. It's a series for the ages.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This series assumes that the audience members appreciate humor as well as strong writing. The characters are appealing because of their intelligence.
Guest More than 1 year ago
And one of the best shows to ever air. It is stunning how good a pilot this was. The set is a must-own for any tv fan.
