THE X-FILES EVENT Series Blu-ray Review
The X-Files Event Series attempted to make believers out of new and old fans alike, but left me let let down more than anything. I loved seeing David Duchovny’s Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Scully back on the small screen, but felt that the first episode was a let down and made me feel as though I had to work harder than I should have to enjoy. I hoped that the next episodes would get better, but they were equally as disappointing.
I wanted to love this event series, I really did, but I kept asking myself why I kept tuning in to watch when I always felt let down afterwards. The issue with this as a fan of The X-Files is that I wanted to be a believer that the truth was still out there. There was so much hype around the series that my hopes were higher than they should have been.
If you are a fan of The X-Files, then you may want to pick this up because 0f the special features alone. Keep reading for more details about this Blu-ray.
