Meanwhile, Fox’s X-Files: The Event Series (aka Season 10) is now available for pre-order on Amazon on Blu-ray and DVD. No street date is yet available, and there’s no word yet on extras, but I suspect the title will be officially announced sometime this week. The final episode of the series’ broadcast run airs on Fox tonight. Meanwhile, here’s the official cover artwork (see above and below).
Speaking of The X-Files, a number of you have asked if there’s going to be a way to identify the corrected Season 8 Blu-rays in stores. There may be, eventually, but for the time being 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is recommending that people simply purchase the existing sets and then go through the exchange process (see the instructions at the end of our review). It’s easy and fast – the fixed discs are already shipping out to people ahead of schedule. Likely the corrected discs aren’t going to be in stores until current stocks sell out and the title get re-solicited to retailers. So there you go.
