The X-Files is quite simply a worldwide phenomenon. It became much more than a popular television show and exploded beyond mere media to become a part of our culture. As more and more fans felt the need to connect and talk about the show, huge conventions began to be held on a yearly basis all over the world. The show spawned a theatrical movie, best-selling novels, comic books, interactive games and gave birth to an immense online community. Fans just couldnt get enough. The show took on a life of its own. In essence, it became its own "otherworldly" experience.

Now, with this amazing collection, you can relive that excitement with all nine seasons of The X-Files plus the theatrical movie that aired between Season Five and Season Six. Relive FBI Agent Fox Mulders desperate search for the truth ever since witnessing the alien abduction of his sister when he was a young boy. Follow Agent Dana Scully as she makes the incredible journey from sceptic to believer as she and Mulder encounter growing proof in the existence of extraterrestrials and an undeniable government conspiracy to cover up that truth. Then join Agent John Doggett and Agent Monica Reyes as they too become believers while delving deeper and deeper into the unsolved FBI cases that make up the X-Files.

This 61-disc set includes:
* Every episode from all nine seasons


* Theatrical movie

* Audio commentary on selected episodes

* Deleted scenes

* Mythology documentary

* Interviews with Chris Carter and cast

* Special effects sequences

* Character profiles, featurettes and much more

Got this when it was £55 Amazon honouring cashback even though it was listed as a mistaken price :thumbsup:

Best deal at the moment on it though, although its only a rumour once the X Files 2 movie has been released theres the possibilty of a Blu ray release for these seasons, as I said only a rumour though.

I was looking at my boxset the other day and wondering whether they could all be efficiently compressed to fit on a single Blu-ray. I know they wouldn't do this, I was thinking more as a personal copy of my collection.

If they were all released in 1080p then you'd still have a mountain of discs, not even sure the source material merits such treatment.

I would love them to do that.

You could quite easily fit a whole season onto one 50GB BD Disc. But it will never happen. Yet again we will be forced multi disc sets full of rubbish extras etc just so they can keep the price high.

I dread to think how much they would want for a complete blu-ray X Files set? £200 at least if not more.

Very tempted by this.

I reckon you could get all nine seasons and the movie on to two discs if you went for around 350mb an episode. The price of a Blu-ray boxset doesn't bear thinking about!

Yes but as I have read on other threads, you are looking at the releases on DVD or compressing them down. X files episodes were shot using 35mm film, Fox would reencode these for a High Definition Blu Ray Release, and its been reported if they were to do it they would release them season by season at least for the time being.

forum.blu-ray.com/sho…602 Is one thread regarding it.

LOL I'd want at least DVD quality, I can get 350MB episodes for free.

One season per disc at DVD quality would be great.

LOL...use Dual layer recordables and you could get that sort of quality yourself over just a few disks! Could just squeeze on a Season of the X Files in DIVX on a dual layer disk.

But the point being that they could release one BD disc with a complete season on it uncompressed. No faffing, no compression, DVD quality on just one disc.

For a DVD quality DIvx with AC3 you would need around 800MB - 1000 MB per episode. Which, with 22 -24 episodes per season would require at least 4 DVD's. I dont care what you say you stick a 42 minute episode into 700MB it is not going to be the same quality as an uncompressed DVD.

With a 50GB BD disc you could have 2 GB episodes and still have a bit of room left for some extras.

But what is the point of having DVD quality on One Blu Ray Disk!!!! The whole point of Blu Ray or HD DVD is to have a resolution 6 times the quality of standard DVD. The X Files was shot using 35mm film and is totally at the hands of the studio to re-encode it to a higher standard than the original DVD releases were.

Surely the whole idea of having the greater storage capacity of Blu Ray or HD DVD was the ability to encode at a higher resolution that standard definition? Not that it was a mass storage device to facilitate a whole season of a show in the same quality as DVD on one disk?

The point being, it should be cheaper, less space on the shelf, no need to change discs. Less compression etc etc etc. You could have the whole series of the west wing in a package thats the same size as season 1 itself.

But as has been said, it will never happen but I for one would think it would be an inspired idea.

But space saving alone isnt the idea of having Blu Ray or HD DVD its the better quality that counts, if you wanted what you are saying, wait two years until Blu Ray burnables are at an affordable level and proceed to store it yourself like that, or rip the current uncompressed DVD's to hard disk and play from a media centre.

The more exciting idea at least for me is seeing better quality transfers from the source material, something which would be exciting for a brilliant but now dating show.

It's an interesting debate, and one which I am sure different people would have views on. Whether they see Blu Rays future to offer them TV Series with a lesser footprint space or whether people want to see TV shows with enhanced image quality from the original source that the original DVD's lacked.

For me personally, I would not be swayed to want to buy a show again for the convenience of having a lesser footprint to only have the same quality material, unless of course I had not already bought it previously on DVD.

I agree, the whole point was that I'd simply like to just have them all on one handy disc as well as my originals. Say for watching on my laptop or something?

However I don't think I could be bothered to encode them all!

I already do have a media streamer that works very well as well as a small BD collection. I dont think I could muster myself into buying these on BD anyway, far too much money.

Its just an option isn't it. I find it difficult to actualy store these huge sets. Have you seen the size of the Babylon 5 set for example?

But as said, it would just cause confusion. It just seems not too much a leap forwward when the size of the next gen releases will be exactly the same as the DVD releases. I'd love to have the whole 10 series of friends for example sat on my shelf being the same size as a hardback book. Or indeed taking it further to have it the size of a SD card. Dream on.

The idea of complete boxsets on a MicroSD is also kinda amusing, yet amazingly possible.
