This is definitely a book for the X-Files fan!
chad steingraber
That said, it is only a synopsis for the first two seasons of the X-Files and there are some really big books that cover a lot of ground when it comes to the show.

I particularly enjoy the episode guide part in this book.

Even the most avid fan needs a road map to the X-Files (I know I do!). I have been a fan since the very first episode and I own all the episode guides, all seasons on video tape, all seasons on DVD and various other books and magazines....so, it is safe to say that I like the X-Files. This is definitely a book for the X-Files fan! It has all of season 1 and 2 with a detailed synopsis for each episode...including important dialogue quotes. It has great photographs also to accompany the stories. You could easily understand what's going on just from reading this book....it's also good as reference when something happens in later episodes that you didn't understand, to go back and find out who, why and what.
It also has all of the awards the show had won during those seasons. Well worth the money and makes a good collectible item!

As a virtually new X-Phile (lover of the X), I found that this book gave me the necessary edge to to compete with old Philes in chatrooms and conversations. The book gives important facts and interesting biographies, but for the person wanting gossip and tabloids about the actors and actresses involved with the making of The X-Files, this book is not for you. This book is good to have for reference purposes...I find that I return to it constantly to look up facts and review episode descriptions. So, for the young (or new) Phile, this is for you!

As a 11 year old child, now very interested in the x files, I needed a way to learn of all the things I had missed in the first couple of seasons without straining by budget. Then I found this. With detailed walkthroughs of the first three season's episodes, and biographies of the actors/ actresses, as well as the characters, I found this book as the thing I wanted.

An excellant and complete episode guide which is accompanied by never-seen-before photos. Includes interesting interviews with the cast which give you an indepth insight into who Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny and Chris Carter are. Essential reading for any X-philes as this is the book which traces the shows orgins - it shows you how it all began!! 5 years later its important to take a look at the past.

It is a very clear and excellent book for everybody to read. I particularly enjoy the episode guide part in this book. It depicts clearly the cast, the plot,and some comment about how to shoot these episodes. Also, in these episode guides, there are many good picutres which give readers visual sastisfation. If you like The X Files show, please don't miss this book. It's really fantastic!

This was a pretty good book, although it did not delve into the episodes as much as I would have liked. It was little more than an outline of the first and second season episodes, but I really enjoyed the interesting bits of info surrounding the characters, the actors, the writers, and the behind-the-scenes action.

Format: Paperback
This book filled me in on the titles of episodes- I had no idea that these episodes had titles before reading this. It also helped me fill myself in on episodes I had missed and the authors did a very good job of doing so. This one is much better than the "Friends" episode guide- which only told you about the situation, whereas "The Truth is Out There" gives you a play-by-play.
