Beschreibung von Audible

"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

Inhaltsangabe

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.

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.
