According to FOX TV DVD, this is now being released on 11/25, not 11/4 as originally announced.
Thanks for the news.I am actually happy with this release date change because i allready had DS9 S6 amongst other things to buy on 11/4.
They did an X-files Season 8?
Sorry, I had to go there first...
Did they drop the price too?
Yeah, no more David Duchovny to pay off. Hope this is a little cheaper.
I wish it were A LOT cheaper. Having just paid $42.99 for "Smallville", $37.99 for "E.R." and an average of $40 for the last three seasons of "Buffy" (which is the same studio as X-Files) I just can't pay $100 for medicore to bad seasons of "X-Files."
If I recall correctly, a Fox rep stated in a HTF chat late last year that there would be no price change for the final 2 seasons of The X-Files.
However, I'm not even sure I'd pay $30 for the final two.
I'm also quite happy with the date change as I have to get Deep Space Nine: Season 6, Friends: Season 5 and Finding Nemo on Nov. 4th. On the 25th, all I have is X2 which will give me much more breathing room for the X-Files set. This will balance things out for me quite nicely.
I'm still hoping poor sales of the last two seasons will convince them to drop the price.
The consumer Fox TV-on-DVD site has made several errors in the past regarding release dates.
Currently the password-protected Fox information system for retailers and press shows the original 11/4 date for X-Files Season 8. No price change, either.
Similarly, the Fox TV-on-DVD site says Lost In Space is due 1/13, but Fox's official info system says 1/6. All of this in spite of Ron Epstein's posts saying that Fox hasn't set any release date at all on that one.
It's all very strange...but I'm sticking with the dates in the info system until and unless someone from Fox comes on here and tells us that they know for a fact the dates in that system are wrong. Which shouldn't be...that's the system whose dates are the ones which retailers use as a guide for putting these items on the shelf! I can't imagine any other date being more definative than that.
So I'm sticking with 11/4 for X-Files S8 and 1/6 for Lost In Space S1 until further notice.
I don't know if I should continue my collection or just end the madness with season 7. This has been a DVD show for me as I've never seen one episode of this show during it's original run on FOX. The general census is that it's terrible but I have faith. What should I do?
I actually really liked season 8, but it's not the best and I really wish they would have price dropped it. I thought Doggett was a great addition to the show and it was interesting to see Scully as the believer. I actually liked season 6 and 7 unlike a lot of people (I think some people just have a really narrow view of what the X-Files "should be") Season 9 was just like a soap opera though, save for a few good episodes.
I'm stopping my collection with 8, but I'm waiting a while to get a cheaper used copy.
I will, but only if I can get it near the afforementioned prices similar to present TV set releases.
