The X-Files: It’s Almost Time to Get the Complete Collector’s Set on Blu-Ray

On January 24, 2016, there will be a run of six brand new X-Files episodes. If all you remember is the flukeman from the second episode of the second season (didn’t everyone see that and shudder?), then you’ll want to brush up on the series — in Blu-Ray — before the new shows air.

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
