The X Files achieved it before Fringe

""Fringe" fans, The X files started it on FOX.
If you have not seen the X Files, Check out the series. David Duchovny added so much to his character he seems like a real guy. Mitch Pileggi's performance at portraying the cool, level minded Skinner is always the humble hero for Mulder and Scully and for the viewer. Gillian Anderson is so convincing, we all know her as Scully, that's just how top notch these actors are. Mark Snow's haunting melodic music brings a chill to each scene. Chris Carter's idea for a TV show is by far better than most SCI FI shows. The X Files is an instant classic telling science fiction stories as it was meant to be.
I have to include Millennium, if you have not scene it, ignore the critics and try it. I thought that was one of Chris Carter's best ideas. I also have all three seasons of Millennium on DVD.
As far as any X Files DVD set, there is an alien conspiracy going on that you will want to see from season one. With that said, the regular "filler episodes" outside the alien conspiracy are more for my taste anyway and there is plenty in each season. They are stand alone episodes that are mini-movies. In my opinion, the reason why the X Files films did not do so well is because they already used the same quality of writing and producing for TV.
No SCI FI show today has the look, the music and quality of guest casting like the X Files. The crew are top notch and each an every show they gave 150%."

"This is the slim case version,so the discs are set on top of each other (more or less), and the extras are very limited. However the price is right, and if your main desire is to have the episodes... there you are."
