You'd laugh if you knew how important this book was to me back in 1996. Because 1996, for me, was the time before the internet (I'm slow, so what), and before DVDs, and before I knew about fandom, and online episode guides and all the shiny stuff that is out there these days.

1996 was the time when I watched the X-Files with a friend every week, excited and scared and just crazy about it, and really, when I saw the well-known logo on a table in a local bookstore,only an immediate alien abduction

Read this encyclopedia of the first season of Fox TV's hit sci-fi classic, X-FILES, alongside the shows themselves, and you'll find that author Brian Lowry--or perhaps the editors--could have taken more time to catalog the very circuitous and complex stories of the show's first season.

Too often, the summaries provided for each episode are either too abbreviated or poorly worded to replace watching the show itself. Would-be fans looking to "speed read" their way through the entire first season of

More of a reference/ textbook sort of thing, which covers the first three seasons. I was hoping for more juicy insider information. It does have some, and the project's genesis was really interesting, but after that, it was more of a summary of episodes. I suppose this would have been handier during the time of publishing, when the internet wasn't so quick and comprehensive. Another niggling thing was that it also seemed a bit Duchovny-centric at times; I wish there was more interest or humor in ...more

Like the other behind the scenes X-Files books out there, this one has interesting bits of trivia and interviews. It's fun to read once.

Yes, the truth is out there, but not so much in here. This book, published during the hype that was, and for the most part, still is a phenomenon today was obviously made to reach in to viewer’s pockets and make some of their cash disappear.

It covers seasons 1 and 2 episodes completely but only the first 2 episodes of season 3. Written by Brian Lowry, it gives some insight into the creation of the X-files and we learn (like any X-Phile wouldn’t?) That inspiration came from ‘Kolchak, the Night St

My brother bought this years ago but left to collect mounds of dust so I'm keeping it for myself..haha. During those times..aliens were BIG and people all become obsessed with anything extra terrestrial. Wah..wishing trends like that came back rather than watching all these stupid reality shows..(sigh).

Della serie : "tutto quello che avreste sempre voluto sapere sul telefilm culto degli anni novanta".

Una guida agli episodi di X-Files con l'aggiunta di tante curiosità, aneddoti e tanto di riassunti delle prime due serie, immancabili anche le riviste, che sono una chicca per ogni vero appassionato.

Per appassionati.

I am reliving my obsession, this time as an adult. As I re-watch the X-Files seasons on AmazonPrime, I am enjoying reading the backstories and additional information in the Guide.

I was a huge x-files addict. I went out and bought this in hardcover almost as soon as it came out. It didnt do much for me, very blah.... but it helped calm my craving...
