A Necessary Part of the Mythology Series

"This review is more or less a reflection on the entirety of the Mythology series which streamlines the Alien conspiracy from begining to end.
If there was any difficulty following the main story - this picks and chooses exactly what you need to know.
In my opinion, this works best as a complete set and watched in chronological order from the pilot (on the Abduction Series) though the final episodes(on the Super Soldier Series.) In total there are 4 sets to complete the story chronologically. It's an affordable alternative to purchasing each season right from the get go.
Highly reccomended as a fan of the X-Files."
Another volume for casual X-Files fans

"This third volume in the X-Files mythology series contains 16 episodes from seasons five through eight, including Patient X, The Red and the Black, The End, The Beginning, S.R. 819, Two Fathers, One Son, Biogenesis, The Sixth Extinction, The Sixth Extinction II: Amor Fati, Sein und Zeit, Closure, En Ami, Requiem, Within, and Without; all of which focus on the "Colonization" aspect of the show's main story arc. Many of the episodes featured here (from season's five and six mainly) are classic episodes that revealed much of the show's grand scheme, but the last few featured here weren't up to the same quality that fans of the show expected. There are some pluses here, including the introduction of Agent John Dogget (Terminator 2's Robert Patrick), but as a whole, this collection is better off to casual X-Files fans who don't want to shell out the cash for the full season sets. All in all, like the two volumes before it, Colonization is a decent purchase for casual X-Files fans that are just interested in the show's mythology (the stand alone episodes that the show is renowned for are not included in any of the Mythology sets), but for those who already own the various full season sets, this is completely worthless."
