I've recently watched a couple of episodes and I love this show. Though some of the surprises of the finale were spoiled for me, I think I want to start buying this show on DVD.
Well, it really depends. I say see a few of the early episodes first. For example, if you have a VHS player and a video store that has the tapes, rent the Pilot and Deep Throat VHS (or buy it from a second hand place and see if you can find the creepy but cool artwork cards that came included with them :D ). Plus you get Chris Carter introductions! (Not that I'm a VHS supporter, it's just I'd recommend seeing those first before blowing, that is if you don't like it, $70 on the boxed set)

I can't really justify buying DVD sets of shows that are one hour (45 minutes or so with no commercials). I don't see myself watching the shows more than once or twice, and if I really wanted to see them again, I could rent them (or watch them on VHS, if they are on tape, as most X Philes have them). X Files, Sopranos and Star Trek: TNG are great shows, but are not worthy of my DVD dollars...(and X Files was really week in the later seasons)...

Kevin P:

I would suggest that you watch more episodes before you make your decision. Find out if you still like it before you spend your money. I myself stopped watching it the season after the movie came out. Personally, I'll only buy a series if I know I want to get the whole thing. So, I've got the first two seasons of ST:TNG, but none of the X-Files.

John.
