  1. Snow Files of the Week: "My beautiful airplane/Love Comfort/That's Melancholy" from "Les Herbes Folles (aka "Wild Grass", 2009)". The movie marked the second collaboration between Alain Resnais and Mark Snow (after "Private Fears in Public Places"), two more would follow. The score is melancholic, supporting the beautiful and sometimes strange movie perfectly. The album is available digital and got a very limited release on double CD (together with the third Resnais/Snow collaboration "You ain't seen nothing yet") in France. Enjoy!

  2. In the 2018 “Millennium after the Millennium” documentary, Frank Spotnitz makes reference to Chris Carter early in Season One, letting go of individuals that he had intended to run the series. It seems the writing and production staff seemed relatively consistent over the first season with the exception of Morgan and Wong leaving halfway through as they did with The X-Files Season 4 (which I believe was the expectation from the start), so I was surprised to learn this and am curious who this individual or individual(s) was/were. As inconceivable as it is to me that Chris and Frank could serve as showrunners of two series at once, I never realized there was an intent from the start to let someone else guide the show. Perhaps I misunderstood Frank’s comment, but does anyone know more about this? Obviously Michael Duggan didn’t work out in Season 3, but I’m fairly certain that is not what Frank was referring to.

  3. I’ve heard over the years references to multiple “trap doors” that Glen Morgan and James Wong set in “The Time is Now” were the show to continue into a third season. In the “Millennium After the Millennium” documentary, Chip Johannessen references a then-recent conversation with James Wong in which Wong states they should have spoken about it because there were ways established that would have allowed them to come out of the end of the world scenario they seem to have left. Does anyone know what Morgan and Wong’s potential path forward was or the “trap doors” were? I’ve heard about the post apocalyptic, “The Road” type of route for Season 3, but I don’t know if that was what they truly had in mind or one of a few different options. Thanks!

  4. Hello there PeterWatts, Firstly welcome and secondly apologies for the issue with your posts needing moderation. I've tracked it down to inadvertently a anti-spam word filter that was set to loose instead of strict mode, which meant your posts were needing approval before they appear. Apologies sincerely for this again and the delay in resolving. Secondly you raise a good an interesting question. It's not something I know much about and I haven't seen the documentary personally, but in relation to Michael Duggan, I recall we did a fascinating interview with Patrick Harbinson and our much loved team member Ethsnafu some years ago, in which he mentioned Michael Duggan, in that he intended himself to be in a temporary transition role during Season 3. You can find it here... In terms of the staff movement from Season One, CJ was probably best right not to mention anyone specifically by name but we can speculate a bit by looking at the list of Millennium writers in order of episode in our Episode Guide for clues. Chip J (great to see how well he did after MLM!) could perhaps have been referring to writer and co-producer Jorge Zamacona who left after 14 roles. Perhaps it was Waylon Green, he worked as a Creative Consultant on 5 episodes of Season One, and wrote Paper Dove. Robert 'Bobby' Moresco (who Patrick Harbinson mentions in his interview perhaps), joined midway way through season 1 and worked until the end season 2 as co-producer and he also wrote Covenant and co-wrote Broken World with Patrick. Maybe perhaps he could have been referring to Writer and Consulting Producer Ted Mann, who worked on Season 1 only. Or possibly Charles D. Holland who wrote the 1 episode Wide Open and otherwise served as Story Editor from Gehenna up to The Wild and the Innocent. Harold Rosenthal also only worked once on Millennium, having written S1's Powers, Thrones... I don't think it was Tim Tankosic, he wrote/worked on only 1 episode, Walkabout. Actually, he seems to have left the industry with just this single credit accordingly IMDB, I'd like to learn more on that. Regards, Graham
