I buy things — all the time!

X-Files on Sale!

I was browsing through Amazon.com earlier today trying to figure out which DVD box sets to purchase next. I was thinking I’d get the first three seasons of House, and then maybe grab an old ’80s series like Family Ties or The Facts of Life.

But then I saw that The X-Files: The Ultimate Collection is on sale for just $164.99 — which is a mind-boggling 50% off the regular Amazon price — and I knew I couldn’t pass it up. So I went ahead and took the plunge.

This set comes with every single X-Files episode ever made, plus the theatrical film (Fight the Future) and loads of extras/bonus features. There are 61 discs in all (wow!) and they come in a pretty cool collector’s box.

At a regular price of $329.98, there was no way I could ever justify buying the set. Now that it’s just half that, there was no way I could just let it go.

Anyway, as usual, I have no idea how Amazon.com’s pricing policy works, so who knows how long this deal will last. If you’re an X-Files fan and you’ve got the cash, you’ve got to buy this set ASAP!!!
