WATCH FOR A SNEAK PEEK:
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Almost immediately after its premiere in 1993, The X-Files became an international phenomenon. The show’s conspiratorial tone and blend of paranoia, horror and edge-of-the-seat suspense made it one of the most popular and groundbreaking shows in television history.
The X-Files Essential Collection has been personally curated by series creator, writer and executive producer Chris Carter to include 20 must-see episodes from the original X-Files that are not only fan favourites, but are also a crucial guide to the essence of the series. This is the ultimate collection for longtime fans, and a comprehensive introduction for those who are new to the show. It includes the best from nine seasons of abductions, monsters, mythology, government conspiracy & paranormal phenomena.
The X-Files chronicles the lives of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, two disparate FBI agents who were originally assigned to investigate the bureau’s unsolved cases, known as the “X-Files” — many of which suggest paranormal involvement. Mulder, who maintains that as a young boy he witnessed his sister’s abduction by aliens, is the believer, steadfast in his determination that there exists an entire world which simply cannot be explained by rational thought, a world rife with alien beings, government conspirators, and human anomalies. Scully, a medical doctor by training, remains the rock-solid skeptic, equally determined to prove that science can explain even that which appears to be without explanation. Nothing, not even her own possible alien abduction, has shaken the foundations of her faith.
