DVD: (RECENTLY ACQUIRED) THE X-FILES -THE COMPLETE COLLECTOR'S EDITION
What it doesn't say is that it also includes the first movie plus a 60-page booklet. Listed on Amazon for £97.78 (probably a reduction from the original price), I got an excellent used copy from zoverstocks (an Amazon marketplace dealer I highly recommend) for £31.28 (including postage).
The discs haven't been remastered from their original appearance so the menus are a bit clunky -no play all, you have to manually return to the main menu after watching each episode, and other odds bits and pieces. The picture isn't as sharp as you'd expect these days. But it still represents great value for money with a running time of 148 hours and that's not including the extras.
I will be reviewing it some time but, only being halfway through the first series, it won't be soon.
