The X-Files is one of my favorite television series of all time, so I was very excited to learn that FOX Home Entertainment will be releasing a Complete Collector’s Edition on Tuesday, November 6. This is a massive DVD box set containing 61 discs, and is definitely a must-have for true fans of the show. In addition to every single X-Files episode aired during its incredible 9-season run, the Collector’s Edition contains the full-length Fight the Future film, plus more than 9 hours of extra features, such as commentary, deleted scenes, character profiles, documentaries, games, and additional info about the mythology arcs.
I recently started watching Season 1 episodes of The X-Files just because I miss the show so much. Back when TXF was on the air, I thought Fox Mulder and Dana Scully were two of the best TV characters ever, and that opinion still holds true to this day. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson turned in consistently brilliant performances that I never get tired of watching. And of course, they had incredible chemistry, which makes it fun watching their relationship deepen and develop over all nine seasons.
I have to admit that I didn’t always understand the complexities of the various alien mythology arcs, so I think it would be great to see the special featurettes in the Collector’s Edition box set that focus on topics like abduction, colonization, the black oil, and super soldiers. I’m sure I would appreciate the whole series even more if I could actually understand all this stuff!
Obviously The X-Files Complete Collector’s Edition box set would make an awesome gift for devoted fans this holiday season, so keep this in mind if you know someone who loves the show. I’m going to put it on my list and hope that my husband decides to buy it for me.
Remember, the Complete Collector’s Edition will be released on November 6. Get your set early!!
