Truth: Without Mulder and Scully, there is NO X-Files.

I've bought new DVD's and found errors in the manufacturing, however this set is as good as quality can get.

It's nice knowing you have every episode available to watch at any time.

Remember back when The X-Files was still fairly easy to understand?
Relive those magic (and sometimes goofy) moments with this new box set. Sure, half of it has already been released on VHS - but this set includes some gems that the first couple waves of home video ignored.
Remember the eternally creepy "Young At Heart", or a few unintenionally silly episodes like "Space" or "Ghost in the Machine"? Or Nicholas Lea's first X-Files appearance (although not as Krycek)? How about "Roland" or "Born Again", which represent some of the finest moments from the first season? They're all here, alongside other popular episodes like "The Erlenmeyer Flask", "Deep Throat", "E.B.E.", "Darkness Falls" and "Ice" (which is essentially a remake of John Carpenter's The Thing - but the X-Files does it better)!
For the first time in the U.S., you can finally buy a TV program season by season. And plus - these discs give you trailers, interviews and even some cool DVD-ROM content.
If only Paramount would do their Star Trek discs this way!

"The X-Files" is an excellent fit for DVD---beautifully shot, a mythology deep enough to keep teenagers buying background material, and a rabid fan following noted for their penchant to purchase anything "X".
Having collected several of the collector's sets on VHS, like many I was frustrated by the lack of completeness in each release, with a season represented by only 25% of its episodes. While this is acceptable for the casual fans, it proved exruciating for the true X-phile, as invariably favorite episodes were left out of the mix.
This situation has been rectified with the release of the entire first season of the show on DVD in a seven-disc collection. It is now possible to watch each episode commercial-free and in sequence in a digital-quality medium. In addition, an extras disc has been added (details are listed above), including a DVD-ROM computer game.
Having completed my viewing of the entire 1st set, several observations came to mind: - The "X-Files", almost unique in episodic television, hit the airwaves fully-formed. There is precious little difference in tone or execution between the pilot and subsequent episodes. - Whereas some of the 3rd and 4th season episodes saw a noticeable decline in quality (due to the loss of key writers and Chris Carter's focus elsewhere), the 1st season episodes are generally superbly-written.
Unfortunately, my cut of this collection did suffer from noticeable editing problems. Nothing major, typically just a couple of misaligned frames at chapter cuts, but let's face it--for this kind of money, it should be flawless.
Nonetheless, I highly recommend this collection.

There's something special about having a box set tucked away in your DVD collection. It's nice knowing you have every episode available to watch at any time. This set is simply superb. The entire first series of the X-Files is spread across seven discs with a host of extras and even a couple of DVD-ROM games for your computer. Season One of the X-Files was probably the best; it was a hundred times more fresh and original than some of the trite that has been doled out in the past seasons, notable six and seven. Every x-phile has a soft spot for Season One. It's hard to believe it is seven years old now. These episodes were made before David Duchovny could afford acting lessons and before the series' success forced them to dumb down the storylines for the general viewer. If you're a serious x-phile then you'll already own this set, but for the curious newcomer who missed out and wants to know what all the fuss is about (where have you been?) then this is by far the best place to start. There is no doubt whatsoever that the X-Files revolutionised the way TV looks and feels. This set is a fantastic way to own 18 hours of the best television ever made. See what it was like before everyone involved succumbed to the swinish flu of commerce. Don't even think about complaining about the price; seven DVDs for that price is an absolute bargain. You could never get a whole season on VHS for that price. Picture and sound quality in this set are excellent - for those people who have complained about it, remember that it was filmed seven years ago on a modest budget so the picture is never going to be truly crystal clear but it's the best you will ever see it. So, take the plunge and buy it. Completists beware though, you'll have to save up for the 7 subsequent box sets like me! It's worth every cent.

I have been a fan of The X-Files ever since the third season. What drew me to the show was the cool, creepy environments that Mulder and Scully kept finding themselves in, the gruesome special effects work, and the incredible production values (the writing and camera work are both top-notch.) However, I had completely missed the first two years of the show. Sure, Fox had released some episodes on VHS, but not even half of a season was available. When I got a DVD player, this was the first thing I bought. It is quite expensive, but do the math: an average DVD costs twenty bucks, and usually has at least 2 and a half hours of stuff. This set contains SEVEN discs, with four episodes per disc at 45 minutes each. That's 3 hours per disc, and less than 20 dollars each. Plus, the seventh disc has a ton of cool extra stuff, like all of the TV spots for each episode, plus the deleted Teletubby scene from "Fallen Angel." Bottom line: if you like this show, you need this set. It's just that simple.
