I saw a few of the old sets at Best Buy they other day. They were still marked $98.99 or some shit but I had them do a price check and they did ring up at the correct $41.99 price.

I got all of them for 12.69 in shipping. So if you buy a couple or more plus the savings makes it a good deal. I have never seen the X-Files for 19.99. It's a steal.

Which seasons are you missing? I just saw some in a local store for 19.95. They're trying to get rid of them. I could get them for you.

I always get excited when a big X-Files sales Occurs, hoping that the company knows something we don't about a huge boxset that will drop soon.

I don't think this will be part of price drop. I haven't seen it on any future price drop lists.

What extras were removed when they went to the new packaging? I'd love to reduce the space my collection takes up by buying the smaller sets, but as a special features junkie I don't want to lose out on the stuff I like (commentary tracks, documentaries, etc).

They removed the "Bonus DVD" from each set (and if I'm not mistaken S9 had 2 Bonus DVDs). I believe each episode disc is unchanged from the first release where the deleted scenes and commentaries were mixed in with the episode discs, so you don't lose those, but the Bonus DVDs typically had all the deleted scenes together plus many featurettes and such. Since I don't own any of these, I'm going by memory from borrowing or renting them.

IMHO, it was rather cheap of Fox to chop out the bonus DVDs rather than charge a tiny bit more to keep them. My local Fry's ad had all 9 seasons in the new packaging for $19.99, and I had the ad with me when I was at Best Buy on Friday where Best Buy surprisingly had all 9 seasons in stock in the new packaging. I looked at them and thought about getting them all at Best Buy for $180 pricematch, but I decided to pass again not because of the $180 but because they removed the bonus DVDs and moreover because I've been disappointed by too many X-Files episodes. I've only watched up to season 6, and there have been a few really great ones in the series, but the majority of the episodes are disappointments. If it weren't for the fact that I like the 2 main characters, I'd have trouble making it through many episodes. I'm afraid they're gonna have to be closer to $10 each before I bite, and that price is unlikely. This is probably as cheap as they are going to go until HD/BR takes over. However, given that several 3rd Rock from the Sun and all Three's Company seasons (after I foolishly paid about $18 for most of them) can be had for under $10 at DDD now, $10 each is not impossible. Just my 2 cents.

I don't understand why they can't make a mega boxset type thing with all 9 seasons, all the extras, and maybe some new stuff.

It would seem likely if that second film ever gets up and running.

Well, with the current politcal climate, maybe the Feds are concerned about you Canadian terrorists learning too much about the inner workings of the FBI. Maybe the show is closer to reality than we realize?

Yes, They will honor the price even if the sale ends. I've done it B4.
