The X-Files - Season 5

The X-Files - Season 5

DVD (Collector's Edition)

Overview

Fans of The X-Files should be excited to see the fifth season of the show on a six-disc box set from Fox. Each of these 24 episodes (including "Mind's Eye, "Detour, "Unusual Suspects, and "Patient X, among others) are presented for the first time in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen. All in all, these are very pleasing transfers that sport solid black levels and detailed color patterns. While there are a few imperfections to be found (including some color bleeding and edge enhancement), overall these widescreen transfers are leaps and bounds over the previous season's full-frame aspect ratios. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround in English and French. These soundtracks feature a few moments of channel separation that make for a fine viewing, though it would have behooved Fox to have appeased fans by putting in new Dolby 5.1 remixes on each episode. All of the mixes are clear of any excessive hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc are English and Spanish subtitles. Once again, Fox has thrown on a few extra features to placate the fans, and starting out this set's bonus materials are two audio commentaries, one by creator Chris Carter on "The Post-Modern Prometheus" and one by John Shiban on "The Pine Bluff Variant." Both of these tracks feature a lot of production information as well as anecdotes about the cast and crew. "The Truth About Season Five" is a short featurette that includes interviews with various cast and crew members. This is a very fluffy piece that won't add much to one's knowledge of the show. "Inside the X-Files" is a 45-minute piece that includes interviews with stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny talking about working on the show and what it was like being up on the big screen for the feature-length film. "The X-Files: Behind the Scenes" is a very short and pointless promo piece for the show. Six separate special effects vignettes are included that show what went on behind the scenes in the special effects department for the show. Six deleted scenes from different episodes are included (with optional commentary by Carter) that allow viewers to see what ended up on the cutting-room floor. Finally there a few TV and promo spots for the show.

The X-Files - Season 5 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This collection of the entire fifth season of Chris Carter's groundbreaking series has everything! Not only does The X-Files keep up the same level of great television that it has maintained in the previous four seasons, but it also stretches out and shows it's viewers that comedy is something that can be achieved on this show as well, (and very nicely i might add). In the episode Bad Blood, (arguably the best stand alone episode in X-Files history), the comedic performances by the show's two stars, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, are so well performed that one might think comedy is a natural occurence on this show! Also, with the special guest appearance by Luke Wilson, the comedic genius is multiplied. Stephen King lends his talents to one episode in this season as well. Overall this season is a must have not only for any X-Files fan, but for any fan of well made cinema/televsion.
