On Jan. 24, Fox reboots “The X-Files” with Emmy-winning stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back on the paranormal case 14 years after the show’s original end. To mark the occasion, the series’ initial nine-season run has been gussied up on Blu-ray with extras culled from previous releases and new features.
It’s actually less expensive to buy the seasons individually on sale for $15-$25 each with no loss in bonus material. True X-philes who spring $270-$280 (the going sale price) for the collector’s set will get a glossy box with space for the eventual home-video release of the new episodes.
Oddly, the cardboard case has been configured to prevent adding the Blu-rays of the two “X-Files” films. Maybe that’s a good thing.
