    Synopsis


    The X-Files: Season Six marked an important moment in the evolution of the series in several ways -- for one, the show's production was moved from Vancouver to Los Angeles, but more importantly, the sixth season followed The X-Files: Fight the Future (i.e. the X-Files feature film). Armed with firsthand experience of the bee-carried alien virus and knowledge of the existence of the most classified government research facility yet, FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) are closer to the heart of the conspiracy than they have ever been. After some of the series' signature lighter fare -- in this case, a body-swapping scenario between Mulder and bored Agent Morris Fletcher (Michael McKean) in "Dreamland" and a tale of a baseball player who may have left his home planet due to love of the game ("The Unnatural") -- the season comes to a head when Scully travels to Africa to find the cause and cure for Mulder's neurological deterioration and finds the long-buried remains of an alien spacecraft. ~ Tracie Cooper

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

      The sixth season of the science fiction television series The X-Files commenced airing on the Fox network in the United States on November 8, 1998, concluding on the same channel on May 16, 1999, and consisted of twenty-two episodes. The season continued on from the 1998 feature film and focused heavily on FBI federal agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully's (Gillian Anderson) separation from the X-Files Division and the demise of the Syndicate—a "shadow government" group attempting to cover up the existence of extraterrestrials—in the two part episode "Two Fathers" and "One Son". The season was the first to be filmed in Los Angeles, after production was moved from Vancouver, Canada. This move was done largely on the behest of Duchovny, who wished to be closer to his wife, Téa Leoni. Series creator Chris Carter opposed the move, although series director Kim Manners and Anderson approved of it, although to a less-vocal degree than Duchovny. The first half of the season also saw Mimi Rogers and Chris Owens' characters—Diana Fowley and Jeffrey Spender, respectively—become recurring characters. Despite debuting with high viewing figures and ranking as the twelfth most watched television series during the 1998–99 television year, the season saw a slight decrease in ratings from the previous one, a trend that would continue until its final year. The season received mixed to positive reviews from television critics; some critics and fans were alienated by the show, due to the different tone taken by most stand-alone episodes after the move to Los Angeles. Rather than adhering to the previous style of "monsters of the week", they were often romantic, humorous, or a combination of both.

      First Post-Movie Season Delivers the Goods

      The 6th season of The X-Files was significant for two reasons: it followed the feature film that premiered the summer of 1998 and introduced the world of alien conspiracies and government secrets to a wider audience, and it was the first to be filmed in Los Angeles (the first five seasons of the show were shot in Vancouver). The producers take advantage of the new environment (a lot more episodes take place in the desert or the southwestern US), and the show successfully builds on the events of the movie. The X-Files have been closed by the FBI, but agents Mulder and Scully still manage to find strange and supernatural events wherever they turn, as well continue to investigate the shadowy Syndicate plotting with aliens bent on an invasion of the planet. The 6th season balances episodes devoted to Monsters of the Week, the overall alien "mythology" and humor quite well, and may be the last during the show's peak. The HD upgrade the show recently got adds considerable value and if you're a long-time fan of the show or are intrigued at discovering a TV classic, you're in for a treat.

      Best Purchase Ever

      There is a fantastic episode called "Triangle," in which Mulder is accidentally sent to the past, (during WWII). It's a very well done episode with great effects and beautiful costumes and set designs. "Dreamland" is a great two-part comedic episode, in which Mulder switches bodies with Michael McKean, who will most likely return again.... This season also includes a haunting Christmas episode, full of ghosts. BRUCE CAMPBELL even guest stars in an episode. We learn a few more things about Skinner. There's also a big revelation about the alien colonists. I know that many people may think that the X-Files left many things unexplained, but this season has a two-part episode that basically explains much of the series. And it has Agent Spender. "Arcadia" is my favorite episode of Season Six, in which Mulder and Scully pretend to be married in a seemingly perfect neighborhood. Suzanne Modeski from Season Five also makes a return. Supernatural elements of this season include ghosts, Area 51, the Bermuda Triangle, haunted houses, demon babies, sea creatures, severe deja-vu, and, of course, aliens.

      conspiracy theory abound

      In a world of cookie cutter entertainments, The X-Files was largely sui generis and continues to be one of the more distinctive entries in series television of the past couple of decades. Fans are already jonesin' for the reboot, but will at least have this massive new set to keep them knee high (or higher) in conspiracy theory until the new version begins airing in 2016. While some fans are understandably upset about the absence of the original aspect ratios for the first few seasons and/or the kind of weird decision to replace the show's iconic fonts, when taking this release as a whole, The X-Files: season 6 blu comes Highly recommended.

      Great Series! One Complaint About The DVD's

      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.

      Great transfer to Blu-Ray

      These new Blu-Ray releases of the X-Files seasons are a must-have for fans, due to the excellent transfer to the format, remastering them in HD quality. This makes for a striking improvement over the DVD sets, especially the earlier seasons that were not filmed in HD. Plus, all the bonus features from the DVD set carry over, and the package is much more compact and space-saving compared to the bulky, boxy packaging of the original DVD set.

      Hitting their stride

      For this reviewer, Season 6 of the X-Files was probably the last season that I could truly say was unforgettable. Scully and Mulder continue to deeper their relationship as the tension rises. Familiar characters flit in and out of episodes and the "mythology" track takes a little different turn. There are plenty of light and comedic moments that further endear the protagonists to the viewer.

      A Brighter Location, Same Great Show

      The move to L.A. from Vancouver did nothing to quell the great storylines of Season 6! Coming off 'The X-Files: Fight the Future', Season 6 carries some spectacular mythology episodes, as well as classic standalone 'monster of the week' eps like 'How the Ghosts Stole Christmas' and 'Tithonus'. A great season worth having in your collection!
