I held out hope that perhaps they'd reduce the price on season sets 8 and 9, but alas, Fox has not. With a retail price of $149.99 and a street price of around $100, I just can't justify the expense for the last two seasons. The quality had dropped off too sharply. I can find things to enjoy up through season 7, although the drop was there, but the last two took the conspiracy to ridiculous places and the ratio of good to bad stand alone episodes teeters far too much to bad. With every other major TV season hitting streets at below $50, I just can't go on with it. It makes the collector in me sad, but I just can't do it. Maybe I can pick up a used set cheaply, but I'm not buying it new. Similarly, "Buffy" had a mediocre season 6 (I'm one of the few fans who liked it) and worse season 7, but their reasonable price (around $40 first week) will allow me to complete the whole series. I wish I could with X-Files. P.S. I deserve extra credit for not using the term "Jump the Shark" in my...oh damn!
