    Hmmm, I'll have to watch those again. I stopped watching routinely around season 7 and I've missed quite a few episodes in season 8 and 9. The show didn't hold my interest like it used to.

    The Super Soldiers thing was the WORST PLOT DEVELOPMENT EVER.

    Also, I had no idea they were doing "Season 10" comics. Just read the first issue and it's quite good.

    Yeah, the super solider storyline did kinda suck. The season did have some pretty awesome episodes though (brady bunch).

    Season 10 has started off really well. Can't wait to see where this is heading.

    So, they're doing a season 10 comic. I thought you were trolling at first until I googled it, heh. All I want is a third movie that gives some sense of closure (Doggett and Reyes). Maybe I'll check out the comics at some point though.

    Blu-rays would be amazing, season 1 especially needs some love and care on those negatives, if at all possible.

    I am very fond of seasons 1 and 2, in the 90s I had the pilot on VHS, as well as The Unopened File, which was the last episode of season 2 and first 2 episodes of season 3 as a feature length X file. It wasn't until I was 20 in 2004 I got the DVDs and saw the majority of seasons 3-9 for the first time.

    I'm throw out my opinion on the later seasons, I found season 7 quite weak despite a few good episodes, but season 8 seemed to be super focused again and I would rate it as the best of the post movie seasons. I think season 1-5 are the most consistent though for quality.

    Seasons 1-4 in widescreen would be great.

    Much like thousands of other TV shows, this one would have to be redone from the cutting room floor for a proper HD release (e.g. Star Trek: TOS, Star Trek: TNG, Firefly, etc.). Last I heard anything about blu's for this was the end of last year, with a projected release date of Q4 2013. It will happen, just give it time.

    Seasons 1-4 were shot, produced, blah blah blah, in 1.33:1; I wouldn't hold your breath for widescreen, as I think that doesn't exist.

    Yeah, kinda figured as much... Awesome idea though, if it were possible. I think when I'm caught up with my other shows, I may rewatch the series. It's about time.

    Playing The Last Of Us, with its fungus zombies, has made me flash back to that episode with the throat-spore stalks. GAH.

    Firewalker you mean. That episode was weird and kinda reminded me of Ice...only a little.

    Yup, it was very Ice-ish, but Ice was a much better episode.

    Agreed even if it is a Thing knock-off...ssssshhhhhh. Still a great one regardless.

    I just finished the Colony. I have to watch the second part now. I'm not having much luck finding season 4 for a cheap price. Ugh.

    Haha, definitely a Thing knockoff, but I didn't mind. I love how X-Files was inspired by some great sci-fi/horror movies, and now x-files inspires the new movies. Most recently, I remember XF being mentioned as an influence in the commentary for Prometheus.

    Aaah, Colony/End Game is so good. Season 4 is my favorite season of the show, and it probably is for a lot of people, so that could explain the higher price?

    No idea. I still need to plow through season 3 before I even get to 4. I'll find and buy 4 soon as well as the others!

    I have yet to bother with the 2008 film(and I heard to stay away from it too) but this was a cool re-imagining:



    The remix on my Songs in the Key of X soundtrack is a personal fave too:

    The second movie isn't that bad. Problem is, people probably expected answers and a follow-up to the mythology, which it didn't do. It's mostly an extended "monster of the week" episode. If you can go into it without super high expectations, you should be alright.

    Just finished Paper Clip this afternoon and obviously am in the third season.

    I now have come to terms to state that Walter Skinner is my favorite character, minus the obvious Mulder and Scully of course.

    Exceptionally nasty....haha.

    Top 20 X-Files Villains

    I got my hands on a few more season sets. Now I own 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7. I still need to get 6, 8 and 9.

    Currently just finished Unruhe.

    I gotta watch that show again, I don't think I missed an episode as they aired up until like season 5 or so. Flukeman freaked me out.

    Unruhe is one of my favourite episodes. Season 4 is tied with 2 as being my favourite season as well.

    Clyde Bruckman and Pusher have always resonated with me.
