The stories were not as memorable to me as the first anthology. However the narration was stellar.
Absolute fun to listen. Always takes me back to when Xfiles was amazing. Must listen for anyone interested in the paranormal and or Xfiles fan.
I enjoyed the stories and references to some details from episodes. I didn't really like the story with Mulder and Scully married, but was actually more offended by the portrayal of Dana's mother than the actual marriage piece.
After hungrily listening to every minute of Volume 1, Volume 2 had some high expectations to meet, and in general, I really, really enjoyed it. Most of the stories were true to the series and enjoyable. A few were a bit ridiculous, and one was so out of character that I forgot it was supposed to be an X Files story. The author of "We Should Listen to Some Shostakovich" must have never taken the time to watch any of the episodes with Scully's mother, because she was written as a haughty, snobbish socialite. Mulder and Scully married and expecting a child was enough of a stretch in this story, but the characterization of Margaret Scully was so OFF that listening to the story was almost unpleasant.
Once again, we had the mis-pronunciation of Lone Gunmen Melvin Frohike's last name as "fro-hike" instead of "fro-hickey," which again annoyed me to the point of wanting to contact Blackstone Audio's production team to set them straight.
Otherwise, Bronson Pinchot's Mulder is very entertaining, and Huber's narration is passable to sometimes enjoyable.
I would recommend this volume to fans, but with the few caveats mentioned above. I hope there will be a volume 3!
The characters from the original series are not represented properly.
Oscar Wilde - Dorian Gray
If they didn't seem like soap-opera wanna-bes
I would have never approved it.
Shameful and ridiculous.
Having loved the first book I preordered this one as soon as I saw it was coming out. It feels like a continuation of the first book with many more great shirt stories of their adventures. If you're a X-files fan you're going to enjoy it and hopefully it'll make a few more along the way. Looking forward to the third book!
I enjoyed this gook and the first and highly recommend it to X-Files Fans.
I do have one problem with the performance. Real X-Files fans know how to pronounce Frohike. Not Fro-hike like take a hike but Fro-hickey...Give a girl a hickey. It was annoying. Almost to the point of ruination.
