About this deal

Threads of Mythology: Super Soldiers: (SD 26:59) An interesting look at the reason why the show lasted a lot longer than it should have.

This first season has a couple of clunky episodes in there, but that's to be expected with any series. It's a show that is still finding its legs, but through it all the show delivered hours of great entertainment. Nothing Important Happened Today II' International Clips: (SD) Clips are in German, Italian, and Japanese. Without any hesitation, I will state upfront that 'The X-Files' looks damn beautiful with each 1.78:1 1080p transfer. Now, given how the first four seasons were presented in 1.33:1, a conversion to 1.78:1 may worry some people, but it really shouldn't. While some information is lost on the top and the bottom, the show always had a cinematic feel to it and if series cinematographer John Bartley is to believed, each episode was shot with a widescreen view in mind - so it could be argued that the reframing for the first four seasons has brought those episodes to their intended look. While this may rankle some folks who believe it should have been left alone - and I counted myself among that group until I saw these transfers - the series as a whole now maintains a complete uniform visual experience.War of the Coprophages International Clips: (SD) Clips are in German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. While the "monster-of-the-week" episodes were still the highlights of the show, this is the season where it felt like the mythology episodes started to carry a lot more weight and importance.

Ep 3 'Squeeze' and Ep 21 'Tooms' - I have fond memories of watching these two episodes on separate weekends with my best friend at the time. I remember us being totally freaked out by 'Squeeze' and then totally losing it when 'Tooms' started up and we realized it was a sequel episode! These two still stand among my all time favorite episodes. Threads of Mythology: Abduction: (SD 27:29) A look at some of the themes covered within the series.All Things' Audio Commentary: Gillian Anderson gives the commentary for this episode, It's cool to hear her thoughts as an actress as well as a writer and director of this episode. Ep 6' Redrum' and Ep 12 'Medusa' - These two episodes, in my opinion, show that the show still had a lot of creative juice in the tank at this point, but didn't know how to focus it. As the mythology episodes became more and more redundant, the "monsters" became the real highlight and reason to keep tuning in. X-Files Profiles: Cigarette Smoking Man: (SD 6:07) It's short, but it's a fun look at a great character. Memento Mori' Audio Commentary: Frank Spotnitz provides commentary for this episode that is insightful and interesting.
