    Hey. Hi. I remember coming to this site like ten years ago or so when the show was on syndication on fx, watching weirdly ordered smattering of episodes, never quite picking up on the continuity of the mythos. So now I got them DVDs loaded up on the big screen, kick back and watch Frank Black trek the future past. I'm currently on the episode Monster I think, where Frank Black faces child abuse in a personal sense.... The ending of that ep, oohboy. I thought the greatest schism between S1 and S2 was just how manipulative and creepy the Millenium group is presented... it's really just so sudden; although there is a lot of continuity. It's just the tone shift that's so sudden. Anywho, I love to post and I'm sure I can choo choo across the train tracks like nobody's business!

    I didn't see where anyone has put up this topic, yet. Is anyone bothering with the X-Files anymore? I haven't seen tonight's episode (6) yet, but so far, it's been a much better season than last and I'm really enjoying it. A really nice hybridization of mythology and stand alone stories and much more tightly written. Car chases and voice overs maybe too long, but I don't want to nitpick. I should probably sign up at some X-Files site somewhere to discuss it, but by the time I get to it, the show will be over! So sad:(

    When I first watched the show, I didn't like her..I thought she was nagging, getting in Frank's way. Years later I watched it with more mature eyes, eyes that have seen so much more.... and I really think she was, along with the Old man, the one person who was rooted in reality, in love, and compassion. She was trying so hard to keep her family together, keep Frank sane and stable ,and the group was exploiting every weakness they found in him. She had to fight their influence, the influence of the things Frank saw, fight the danger Jordan was in, and on top of it all still be a caring social worker, a great mom, and a supportive wife. WOW!

    I think the group gave her the vaccine, but she didn't know. I think they gave her the syringe,knowing she would give it to Frank, and they set him up to make a terrible choice.... If she had died in the outbreak, I believe Frank would have mentioned it in the same breath he told they killed his wife. If she came back to reality, the group would swarm in all over her. If she stayed insane, they'd wash their hands of her. IF I were writing her story, I'd have her pretend to be insane, until she could sneak away and get free of them.

    My only problem with Lara Means was the "Here's My Thing" It was very annoying. But now, I find in it a reason to smile nostalgically ... He character, when she arrived in "Monster" was so strong, so self-assured, determined... The end of the one season she was on the show, was a far cry from the beginning. I wish that in Season 3 they had given her closure, maybe had Frank stop by and visit her, well, and AWAY from the group for good.

    Thanks Earthnut! I realize I might have to check myself a bit... Sometimes I race here after watching an episode just to vent. :-p I find myself doing that a lot more in Season 3, but after wading through previous posts here I tend to cool off a bit... That being said, I'm with you on trying to appreciate each season for its unique approach.

    In seasons 1 and 2 the group's involvement in taking cases almost always seemed "exploratory." They took on cases which signaled a nefarious evil or apocalyptic flair and dove right in. In season 3 now it seems like all they're interested in doing is manipulating law enforcement to cover their trails. Granted, this is the furthest I've gotten so far, but I'd have liked to see an episode where Agent Hollis and Mr Black are investigating a case that Peter Watts shows up on because it happens to be truly, to quote Giebelhouse, "milleniumistic." (Speaking of which, it was nice seeing Giebs again in Teotwawki.) This shift of having the millenium group only show up to do something nefarious is a bit too sneering-villain thick. I'm not saying that I can't accept the sinister angle of the group; it's just that now they're only shown doing sinister things, and it can't be the case that now that's all they do. A group doesn't do a 180 in mission statement just because of a change in management.

    What made this show a tad confusing is the fact that each season had multiple writers, directors, and producers. And if my memory hasn't failed me, Chris Carter was one of the producers for all 3 seasons, but was directly involved in only seasons 1 & 3. He didn't write any of the episodes in season 2, just 4 in season 1 and 3 in season 3. You can look it up here for more details ~ https://millennium-thisiswhoweare.net/guide/crew/

    Snow Files of the Week

    Yes, it's a really wonderful album. Snow Files of the Week: "Grow up Superboy/Ferris Wheel" from "Smallville" (2001). The show ran for ten seasons, but after season 6, Mark left the show and his former music editor Louis Febre took over for the remaining three seasons. It was Mark's decision, since he was so busy doing the music for "Smallville" and "Ghost Whisperer" at the same time, with additional movies in between (like the second X-Files movie in 2008), that he just wanted to have more time with his family. The music for "Smallville" shows Mark again as a master of haunting themes and melody. His distinctive sound is easy to recognize. A digital album was released with music from the show, before La-La-Land Records released a 2-CD-Set, containing all tracks from the digital album, as well as a second CD with even more music from the show. It also has tracks by Louis Febre from the later seasons. The CD is limited to 3000 copies. Enjoy!

    What does it mean, to play God? Surely, if just a game, its players deserve reprieve on the day of judgement. Sometimes they accuse those egg-head scientists of being abstracted... Is it all simply a game of Sudoku to them? Can they not see the souls being conjured and flushed down the spiritual toilet by their jiggering of the handle? But who are we to think we have that power? If there is a God, nothing we can do will ever supplant Such's authority.... At the very least, these scientists should be sent to "spiritual sensitivity" training... At the most, given a grant to clone the greats of the Hollywood Golden age... Bogart, Garbo, Peck, Gardner. *Tips cap to a cloned Bogie* "Here's looking at you, kid."

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: Suite from The X-Files episode "Post-Modern Prometheus" (1997). For this episode, Snow composed a very unusual score. The main theme, a circus-dance-music-piece, is something, that you would expect from Danny Elfman, not from Snow. But Mark combines this music with a more somber tone for the grief of "The Great Mutato", who is looking for something we all do: Love. And during Mutato's speech at the end of the episode, Mark again uses a piece of Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" within his score. This specific piece can also be heard in the MillenniuM episode "Lament". The music was released as a promotional disc at first, later it got an offical release on La-La Land Records' first volume box of The X-Files music. There is also a single disc with music from The X-Files, that was released in 2013 by BUYSOUNDTRAX.COM. "The X-Files 20th Anniversary" contains music from various seasons of the show, including the "Post-Modern Prometheus" music as a re-recording. The CD is limited to 1000 copies and is also available digitally. Enjoy!

    I realize I may have been confusing. By "a house off Zillow" I don't mean to refer to a street, but the real estate website... which didn't exist at the time of the show, so I'm being a bit loose and anachronistic in attempting to come up with some kind of story for how Frank acquired the second house (But isn't that more fun that keeps on giving, interpreting the show by the world we now live in?)

    Copying and pasting so there's a better chance of everyone reading this story. Thank you for sharing it Alex, and thank you for contacting Mark and making Nina a forever happy camper. ~ ~ ~ The internet can be a beautiful place for meeting people from all over the world. Administrating the Mark Snow fan page on Facebook brought me in contact with some wonderful people. One of them is Nina from Brazil. She had one wish, getting the X-Files main theme handwritten by Mark Snow himself and autographed, so that she could make a tattoo out of it. I wrote Mark about her request and he immediately said yes. A few days ago she got her tattoo and I offered her to tell her story on the fan page. And it is her story, that I want to share with you as well.

    Not only do I believe the group benefited from Frank's problems, they contributed to it. Catherine was a strong woman with an incredible insight and observed everything she could, and then had the wisdom to keep a lot of it to herself, but still seeing and knowing. This to me intimidated the group, and they wanted her out. I really believe she was a threat to them. She also had the ability to be very spiritual, and, very practical at the same time, which was very evident in Anamnesis.

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I don't think I've ever posted here before, but I do remember checking some of the site content. Had to skip over the last paragraph of your reply @The Old Man. Don't want to spoil the rewatch. :-p It is interesting, thus far, the way the story elements in S1 integrate into the storytelling of S2, despite the shift in focus/tone. Frank working with the prospective Millennium candidate going thru a divorce on the Dead Letters almost harkens forward to the difficulties Frank will have in his marriage. The muffled secrecy of Frank's pager and making careful to keep his family separate from his work, to the point of meeting Peter Watts outside the home early on hint at even greater schisms in season 2. (So far, it even seems like the Millenium group is benefiting from Frank's family problems! Contrast that with the offers of employment from "Legion," who promise family security and safety to Frank in exchange for his occupational efforts!) Not quite a "serial drama" we're so used to, like with Breaking Bad, but there is definitely that attention to continuity and consistency between episodes in how the characters act. The show is doing a good job of creating interest and mystery while parceling out "definites" like bread crumbs. (This is a Chris Carter show after all!)

    Welcome Jabbapop. Yes, the change with how The Group is depicted changes markedly, due largely I think to the fact Chris Carter became less involved in Season 2. Personally, S-2 is my favorite for that very reason, but plenty of people have debated that here! Morgan-Wong period was so wonderfully dark.

    I can't believe I didn't think of that. Of course. With Mark Snow, it doesn't matter, he's still a music master. His ability to let us hear what we are feeling in a any scene is amazing. Yes, that prayer at the beginning is, to me, eerie, and/or haunting. Again

    What browser and blocker do you use? I'm not having an ad problem with Google Chrome and AdBlock Plus. ~ ~ ~ Here's the article but with smaller images ~ Psychiatrists studied 400 movies to find the most realistic psychopath — here are their 6 key takeaways Chris Weller Jan. 2, 2018, 11:40 AM Psychopathy, loosely defined, is a combination of cold-heartedness and violence. The most extreme psychopaths may kill without remorse, mutilating victims with as much emotion as you or I might brush our teeth. This is known as "classic" or "idiopathic" psychopathy, but sometimes the disorder is more covert, as with some manipulative smooth talkers who aren't necessarily violent. In 2014, Belgian psychiatry professor Samuel Leistedt wanted to find out which movie characters embodied psychopathic traits best. Leistedt called on 10 of his friends to help him watch 400 movies over the course of three years. The films spanned nearly a century, from 1915 to 2010. When the team finished watching all the films, they'd found 126 psychopathic characters. Here's a breakdown of their findings. Anton Chigurh of "No Country for Old Men" was the most realistic psychopath. Javier Bardem's character in "No Country for Old Men" is a classic psychopath, Leistedt and his colleagues concluded in their report. Chigurh approaches murder with an uncanny sense of normalcy, perfectly happy to empty his trademark bolt pistol without so much as a wince. "He seems to be effectively invulnerable and resistant to any form of emotion or humanity," the researchers wrote. Honorable mentions went to two characters: Hans Beckert in "M" and Henry Lee Lucas in "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer." In the 1931 German film "M," Peter Lorre plays a child-killer who embodies many of the traits now thought of as belonging to a child predator, Leistedt and his colleagues observed. "Lorre portrays Beckert as an outwardly unremarkable man tormented by a compulsion to murder children ritualistically," the researchers wrote. In the 1986 John McNaughton film "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer," the titular character's inability to plan ahead, coupled with his turbulent personal life and poor family relationships, make him a textbook idiopathic psychopath, Leistedt said. Early representations of psychopaths weren't very accurate. Characters like Tommy Udo in the 1947 film "The Kiss of Death" and Cody Jarrett in "White Heat" (1949) played to people's misunderstanding that "genre villains," such as gangsters or mad scientists, typified psychopathy. "They were often caricatured as sadistic, unpredictable, sexually depraved, and emotionally unstable with a compulsion to engage in random violence, murders, and destruction," the team wrote, "usually presenting with a series of bizarre mannerisms, such as giggling, laughing, or facial tics, often creating famous and unreal characters." For decades, slasher films reigned as the ultimate (false) display of psychopathy. Films like "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Friday the 13th" delivered a brand-new take on the cinematic psychopath. But Leistedt and his colleagues argued in their report that Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees aren't psychopaths. "In these slasher films," they wrote, "psychopathic characters are generally unrealistic, accumulating many traits and characteristics, such as sadism, intelligence, and the ability to predict the plan that the future victims will use to escape. Today, these are more iconic popular evil representations of fictional killers than of interesting psychopaths." Female psychopaths are just as rare in film as in the real world. Out of the 126 psychopaths in the team's sample, only 21 were female. Typically, those characters fit a similar mold, often serving "as scheming manipulators whose main weapons are sexual," the research team wrote. Examples of such female psychopaths in film include Hedra Carlson in "Single White Female" and Catherine Tramell in "Basic Instinct" — both of whom use men's sexual desires against them to dangerous degrees. Characters such as Annie Wilkes in "Misery" and Rachel Phelps in "Major League" are among the few exceptions to that rule. Some of the most famous "psychopaths" didn't make the cut. Patrick Bateman in "American Psycho," Gordon Gekko in "Wall Street," Norman Bates in "Psycho," and Hannibal Lecter in "Silence of the Lambs" are all entertaining and frightening. But Leistedt and his team said their character traits don't quite fit the psychopath mold. "In our specific topic of interest, it appears that psychopathy in the cinema, despite a real clinical evolution, remains fictional," the authors wrote. "Most of the psychopathic villains in popular fiction resemble international and universal boogeyman, almost as 'villain archetypes.'"

    Snow Files of the Week

    Snow Files of the Week: "Delete/Branches-Angels" from "MillenniuM", episode "Midnight of the Century" (1997). "Midnight of the Century" is the Christmas episode from the second season of "MillenniuM". It's been a fan favourite ever since, that fans keep rewatching over the holidays. The episode deals with the death of Frank Black's mother when he was a child and the broken relationship with his father. A very touching and moving episode, even for viewers who didn't watch every MillenniuM episode. Mark's music adds to the overall melancholic and magical feeling of the episode. He uses a soft theme for strings, combined with etheral choir sounds, to accompany Frank's quest into his past. The track "Delete" was already used in the X-Files episode "Emily". It got a slightly different arrangement for "MillenniuM" by Mark's music editor Jeff Charbonneau. The tracks are featured on the first volume of MillenniuM music by La-La Land Records, which is limited to 1.000 copies. Merry Christmas!

    From time to time, I try to make photos to tweet to Fox. I think the best chance that the fans have for a movie is to make noise and say to Fox: We want our hero back. And for me the only way to have it is with Lance and Mr. Carter. If they are not involved, neither will I.
