    Synopsis


    With Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) firmly established as the believer and the skeptic, respectively, the second season of The X-Files picks up where the first left off -- with the X-Files closed and both agents in FBI-style exile, forced to work on tedious, non-paranormal assignments. Of course, this doesn't last long; some of the series' most pertinent characters are introduced, such as the seemingly omnipresent Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis), a shadowy informant known only as X, and the double-timing Agent Alex Krycek (Nicholas Lea). The second season also marks the true launch of the complex X-Files mythology, and is home to one of the milestones of the series itself, namely, Agent Scully's own abduction and its far-reaching consequences, including the infamous "Purity Control." Mulder, meanwhile, continues to search for answers regarding his sister's abduction and finds several disturbing clues through visits to his father. Complicating issues further is the existence of a seemingly indestructible -- and quite possibly not of this world -- bounty hunter. Luckily, there are also plenty of monster-of-the-week episodes to turn to when the conspiracy gets too deep. ~ Tracie Cooper

      THE X-FILES FINALLY on Blu-ray disc!!!

      The second season of the science fiction television series The X-Files commenced airing on the Fox network in the United States on September 16, 1994, concluded on the same channel on May 19, 1995, after airing all 25 episodes. The series follows Federal Bureau of Investigation special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, portrayed by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson respectively, who investigate paranormal or supernatural cases, known as X-Files by the FBI. The second season of The X-Files takes place after the closure of the department following the events of the first season finale. In addition to stand-alone "Monster-of-the-Week" episodes, several episodes also furthered the alien conspiracy mythology that had begun to form. Season two introduced several recurring characters—X (Steven Williams), an informant to Mulder; Alex Krycek (Nicholas Lea), Mulder's partner-turned-enemy; and the Alien Bounty Hunter (Brian Thompson), a shape-shifting assassin. The storylines were widely affected by the pregnancy of actress Gillian Anderson; it was decided that Scully would be kidnapped and abducted by aliens, explaining her absence and allowing her to appear comatose two episodes later, which ultimately added more intricacies to the mythology. The season earned seven Primetime Emmy Award nominations. The premiere "Little Green Men", debuted with a Nielsen household rating of 10.3 and was viewed by 9.8 million households, marking a noticeable increase in viewership since the previous year. The series rose from number 111 to number 63 for the 1994–95 television year. In addition, the show's second season has generally received positive reviews from television critics. Used to own on VHS, some, and DVD. Bought it with a gift certificate. One of my all-time favorite TV shows.

      The Truth Has Never Looked Better

      Season 2 of the The X-Files was the beginning of the show's transition from cult series to pop culture phenomenon. Picking up from the shocking events of the season one finale, FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully have been separated and the X-Files have been closed. But there are still strange phenomenon to discover...and the growing government conspiracy involving the existence of aliens and connections to Mulder's family. The season is most famous for Scully's abduction (originally done to explain Gillian Anderson's pregnancy, it deepened the alien mythology and set the show on the course of excellent it maintained for most of its run). Upgraded to HD picture and with a widescreen presentation, the show looks better than ever and is aggressively priced. Whether you want to refresh your memory before the new show or are discovering it for the first time, pick it up.

      'The X-Files' Finds its Footing

      Gillian Anderson's pregnancy is probably the best thing that ever happened to this show, as it forced the writers to think outside the box and ultimately create the arc that centered around Scully's abduction, the catalyst that really drew Mulder & Scully together as the quest for the truth became markedly personal to both of them even as it reached to ever more life-threatening heights. The stand alones are superb in this season, with 'Red Museum', 'Firewalker', 'Humbug' (the show's first foray into comedy), and 'Irresistible' (which introduces one of the creepiest villains ever, Donnie Pfaster), and alongside mythology episodes like 'Colony', 'End Game', and the first true cliffhanger 'Anasazi', season 2 of 'The X-Files' catapulted the show to new heights among television entertainment, making this a must-have season for the true fan!

      The X-Files in 16:9 high definition Blu ray! Been a huge fan since season 1 and i finally get to re live these massive TV moments in awesome detail and quality! Being a believer of the paranormal and government conspiracies i instantly got turned on to this excellent show! In most episodes, Mulder and Scully investigate paranormal happenings that defy the laws of nature or the universe. Scully proves to be ever the skeptic she set out to be, never being convinced of Mulder's work. Should you pick this up if you are a fan? Absolutely. Is it worth it? Positively! I will be slowly collecting the whole series, i just got season 1 and now this one, next is season 3!

      Great Series With One DVD Complaint

      If you are reading this review then you are an X Files fan. This is hands down one of the best science fiction series out there, I was sad when the series ended. I purchased all 9 seasons on DVD and very happy with the series on DVD with one complaint, the inability to watch each show consecutively. Currently, when an episode ends, I have to select the next one and click play, I don’t know what they were thinking when they created these DVD’s but they are all like this. I want to be able to click play and watch the all episodes on the DVD without being prompted click play just to watch the next episode.

      This is the Year that sold the show to the viewers

      Posted

      The first year was good, but this was the year that sold the show to the public. Some of the most interesting shows were shown this year. Plus the inter-action between Fox and Scully was drawn out more. From this year for the next few years the show was bound to take flight. This was the year of the Flukeman, the thing living in the sewers. The abduction of Scully, the intro to Alex Krycek, the alian shape-shifting bounty hunter, the beginning of making Canser man a real part of the show. Of course a great season ending show, that you have to buy season 3 to see the end of.

      So glad they finally upgraded to High Def. I enjoyed re-watching the season in High Def on Netflix and now glad to own it (I'm sure at some point it will not be available to stream, so I went ahead and upgraded my dvds). I will always knock one star off of X-Files seasons until they go in and give them the ultimate treatment. This series should have tons of extras and they just seem to be lacking. Would have also appreciated a digital copy. I'm willing to double dip when they decide to do both.

      Much Needed Season

      Posted
      Lexa

      The plot to the X-Files begins to thicken in this second season. Alex Krychek is introduced and Scully's own abduction leads to more clues. Some monsters to look forward to are vampires, killer dreams, murderous appliances, ghosts, and satanists. The shape-shifting bounty hunter is also introduced in this season. The aliens' plot to colonize Earth will continue throughout the series, so don't miss this season! An episode to look out for is "Humbug," dealing with sideshow performers and great deleted scenes.
