Avis de l'équipe

"Now that was some serious, bleeping fun. For a few hours – amidst the sounds of morphing extraterrestrials, ignited flamethrowers, and the sonic tremble of spaceships overhead – it felt like I had stolen away into the world of The X-Files and been treated to my very own mini-season. Of course, listening to Duchovny and Anderson verbally spar as the iconic pairing of Mulder and Scully is an X-Philes' delight. But, for me, hearing the liquid honey – though sinister – croon of William B. Davis' Cigarette Smoking Man AND the giddy shenanigans of the original Lone Gunmen was worth the price of admission alone. Add to that top-notch sound design and a story that doses out ‘Monster of the Week' thrills and ‘mytharc’ reveals (canonical arguments be damned, this was just too fun), and you have yourself one can't-miss listen for fans." -Doug, Audible Editor

Description

The truth is still out there. The iconic hit that had millions searching for UFOs back in the 90s is now an exhilarating audio event, only from Audible. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reunite as FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, joining an ensemble of original cast members in an out-of-this-world production.

When a security breach allows a mysterious, sinister group to access details from the uncrackable X-Files cold cases, Mulder and Scully—alongside favorite characters such as Assistant Director Skinner, the cryptic and elusive Cigarette Smoking Man, and the comically conspiratorial Lone Gunmen trio—uncover an extraterrestrial conspiracy dwelling beneath the surface.

Featuring creative guidance from series creator Chris Carter, writing from graphic novelist Joe Harris, and a dynamic soundscape (think the opening pop of a hypodermic needle or the hiss of a sewer-dwelling alien) brought to life by aural auteur Dirk Maggs, Cold Cases is both an electrifying addition to the science fiction pantheon and a cautionary tale of what lurks beyond the stars.

great adaptation from the comic books

my only critics are that this is too bad Krycek isn't t voiced by Nicholas Lea. I suppose To ERT Patrick was not that cheap to do Doggett, but common, Nick Lea could have done his own voice.

Xfiles makes an amazing audiobook!

I’ve been huge Xfiles fan since day one and have also always loved audiobooks. So this turned out to be the perfect combo. This is definitely now one of my favorites. I listened to it from beginning to end and the time flew by. The sound effects and full cast was brilliant and reminded me a lot of J. Costa’s style for his audiobook Purgatory—another favorite of mine. I’ll definitely be listening to the other Xfiles audiobooks that are available ASAP. I highly recommend this one.

The X-Files are back!

This production is well-done, like an entire season of X-Files episodes done as radio theater. Original cast, sound production, music... It's a total package! The stories revisit some of the classic TV plots, and if you've been away for awhile, you are quickly and deftly brought back up to speed. Great job!

The X-Files: Cold Cases

Milder and Scully are back at it again. This is way after the X-Files. The FBI close down the department years ago. Yet the events of the story is unravelling before your listening ears. I love it, just wish it was longer in length.

New Fan

I haven't really seen the tv show and only watched the film with the bees (and never saw the reboot) so my exposure to X-Files is really limited.

Overall, while I felt the audio production was above average and the voice acting pretty great, I didn't really understand the stories and kept wondering how everything was connected. I was expecting a regular novel but this was mostly just vignettes. I also found it hard to keep up with all the different characters; this is my first time listening to an audio book that sounded more like a podcast than a regular book.

I think this is something mostly for fans of the series who follow the franchise more closely. But I think my interest has peaked so I might check out the original series and reboot!

An enjoyable book for X File fans!

This book does give a little more to the basic story of the X File. Was great to have the actors involved in this audio book. Found it to be well worth the time!

Selling a great brand for cheap

Warning: slight Spiolers ahead!

I confess: I liked the first two episodes: hearing the original cast was great, the sound effects were good and the way the narrative explained the setting was exciting.

Then came the crash: Duchovny reads his lines like he doesn't care at all. Case in point: in one episode Mulder finds hinself in the middle of a gun-fight - yet Duchovny delivers his lines in a tone cashiers use when wishing customers a nice day. His voice is devoid of any emotion or sense of urgency. Gillian Anderson is slightly better and the voice of Krycek is abysmal.
Best exceptions from this rule: the vocalization of Skinner and the CSM.

The plot is a convoluted train-wreck; especially in the later episodes one extraordinary development is followed by the next (even crazier story) within 5 minutes - taking place in several locations to mimick the effect of "plot development". The finale sees one of those plot developments that comes totally out of the blue (Deus Ex Machina fallacy) and is just lazy writing to bring this mess of a story to a sudden end - with major storylines unanswered (see: the question marks behind Krycek's and CSM's appearance).

I don't recommend buying this audio-book - it comes off as a half-cooked spin-off for making a quick buck out of fans of the series.
