  1. I read and appreciated the thoughts offered in this article by Christopher Pilbeam named This Is Who We Are: Queerness In Millennium published yesterday at 25YearsLater; so I thought I'd share it with you. Christopher offers a fresh and interesting LGBT+ perspective and interpretation on aspects of the series I've never personally considered that much before. Whether you are part of the LGBT+ community or not, it's a thoughtful and interesting read, and that's good. If it lets you consider or become aware of something new, it's even more so. I won't go into detail but in particular the focus covers the first and second episodes The Thin White Line and In Arcadia Ego, and other characters and mythology too. As soon as I started reading I was thinking about the Pilot episode and The Frenchman. Whether you agree with all the thoughts presented, some or even none at all, it's a worthy read and at the heart of it, I always love an opportunity to think and consider what Millennium means and is telling us.
  2. Yes, I know what you mean! Sometimes I treat myself to a rerun or perhaps replay of the final episode of a series' preceding season. Just to refresh the old noggin if it's been a while. Happening more and more these days!
  3. Well my hopes for season 4 of Absentia are gone... https://deadline.com/2021/05/absentia-stana-katic-star-amazon-series-ending-season-3-1234752237/ Brilliant series.
  4. Me too! The opening historical footage scenes were fascinating too.
  5. Hopefully he'll get better and make a strong recovery. Sad to hear about that. Bob Odenkirk is a very talented actor. I absolutely loved Breaking Bad and I've waited years to see Better Call Saul, I don't have Netflix. I know, I deserve to be flogged. Now I'm looking forward to it even more after reading your thoughts on it!
  6. We've just upgraded to the latest version of our community software. The major new feature is called Achievements! Achievements means that we can award our members Points and Badges based on conditional rules! The developers have dreamed up innovative actions for us to publicly recognize members who show up and participate in meaningful ways. It's no longer just about post count. Here’s what you need to know... Badges... they're cool. Your Badges will be displayed around the community but mostly in your Profile. Click on the Recent Badges to go to the full list of your Achievements... Points Our new Achievements Points system keeps a running tally of Points. Members can earn Points in a multitude of ways. Essentially, it’s achieved by participating in the community. Create a topic? Points! Post a reply? Points! Follow another member? Nothing. Just kidding… Points!!! This is mostly done through creating a system of Rules. Er, Rules So Rules are actionable processes set up at the backend. We're not going to give away all of the Rules, that wouldn't be much fun! Here are a few of the more obvious ways that members can earn Points to give you some basic idea: When a... Member joins a club Reaction is given New poll is created User follows a content item Review is posted Member logs in for the first time that day New club is created Content item/comment is promoted or featured Comment/reply is posted User follows a forum, blog, gallery, category etc User votes on a poll User is followed New content item is posted Post is marked as best answer How it works... So... Example: When a member posts 10 times, then a particular Badge is automatically awarded. Our Community Elders can also award certain badges. Some badges are very rare, achieved only the top x percent of our total members! But enough of that! Ranks We’ve completely revamped our Ranks system to communicate with Achievements. Our new Achievements’ Ranks system replaces our previous Ranks system and compliments the Reputation system. You'll notice we've got different Ranks based on how many Points a member earns. Effectively the higher a members’ Rank, the greater their influence because the more they’ve participated. It means a new, fun way to recognize and thank you for your contributions to our community. Wait, where's my custom title gone that I set up after reaching 1013 posts? Fear not, we've been careful to preserve custom member titles, and we've added them your Profiles. Starting from scratch... Aw Hell, no! Rather than starting everyone from today, where everyone is essentially a newbie even though they have been here almost 20 years, we've been busy and recalculated all of your existing posts and content, running it through our Rules system so you'll see in your profile your current points and badges straight away. There’s perhaps a lot to absorb here, but if there’s anything to take away from this post it’s this: We can empower all of our contributing members with fun Achievements, which in turn creates a more immersive and elevated experience for our die-hards. And hey, who doesn’t love to earn? Concerns? Comments? Questions? We’d love for you to sound off with your replies! Not only because we want to hear from you, but because it’ll earn you some sweet, sweet Points, too!
  7. Ah Lucille, alas she is no more... Probably for the best!
  8. Just read that actor Clarence Williams III sadly passed away from cancer last month, June 4th, 2021. Known to us a Zero/Kramer in Sense and Antisense.
  9. All the way back from 2005, its about time we resurrected this poll!
  10. Version 1.0.0


    The Wonder Cabinet - Presentation Pilot - 1999 Status - Never picked up by the network. (C) 20th Century Fox TV. All Rights Reserved. Way back in the 1700s, wealthy men had rooms called "wonder cabinets", which were like their own private museums filled with all kinds of scientific curiosities. Fast forward to present time, where an institute in Philadelphia -- Der Wunderkammern -- that believes that mankind's supposed improvements throughout this century have knocked Nature out of balance... and Nature might be starting to fight back (witness the Ebola virus, AIDS, etc.) It is run by an unseen, wealthy "philanthropist", Mr. Swissky, who hires three people to investigate biological anomalies and monstrosities -- in this episode, the investigation revolves around a man with two heads. These lucky three include: Dr. Gordon Wayne, early 40s, a world-renowned heart surgeon who's haunted by a past failure (presently selling heart equipment); Sarah Coleman, 24, a brainy medical student who falls out of favour with her profs because she challenges the establishment; and Dr. Kevin Spitz, 30ish, a neurosurgeon with shaky ethics. The pilot began filming on March 22, 1999. Morgan & Wong were in the midsts of shooting their movie, "Flight 180" (now Final Destination) when they got the phone call informing them that the series was NOT picked up.
  11. Version 1.0.0


    The Notorius 7 Status - Never picked up by the network. (C) 20th Century Fox TV. All Rights Reserved. A ring of mob-like leaders control 'The City', each family representing one of the seven deadly sins, hence the "Seven" in the title. The founder, Dante Alighieri, orders the families to cease and desist all illegal activities. This obviously doesn't go over too well with everyone else so they murder Dante and and frame his innocent, visiting son, Eddie. Wrongfully imprisoned and very angry, Eddie is mentored by an old black dude, Leadbelly and together they vow to bring down each family one by one.

  12. Hello again, Yes, I have them. Uploaded to: https://millennium-thisiswhoweare.net/tiwwa/files/category/14-video-files/
  13. Hi @ComeJoinTheMurder Welcome to TIWWA! I think so, I'll have a look in my archives next time I'm on my PC (tonight or tomorrow). Awesome name by the way, from an excellent song, from an excellent TV series! I may have to ask Alexa for my Sons Of Anarchy playlist right now! Regards, Graham
  14. Welcome home @zombieromero! Yes, due to GDPR regulation, we can no longer keep inactive accounts permanently.
  15. GUIDE: How to set up 2FA on your account 1) First of all log into TIWWA and go to your Account Settings. 2) Click on Security and Privacy, then enable Google Authenticator. 3) If you haven't already installed Google Authenticator, download it for your Google or Apple device. 4) Once the app is installed, don't bother messing with the QR code, just click on the 'Not Able To Scan the QR Code' link I've circled green in the screenshot below... 5) Then the follow options will then show. You need to enter the Key shown into the Google Authenticator App, this is the one starting 4YHRSL in the example screenshot, yours will be different: So, next go to the 2FA app, and click on the + add button in the corner, then choose Enter a setup key as shown below: (This is a screenshot of the iPad version, yours may look slightly different) The following settings will open... TIP! Instead of entering your email address into the account field, I suggest using a friendly name such as TIWWA, this will save on any confusion if you use the app again later on other websites. Then enter the Key into the App. Here's our example: Leave the drop down option as Time-Based, then click Add. 6) Once you click the Add button, the app will give you the verification code, here in this example it is 918732, yours will be different: This is the code you now need to enter into the bottom of the form back at TIWWA, before the code expires. Type in your code, here it was 918732 then click on the Verify Code button to finish. (The code will start flash to show when it's about to change, in which just wait for the next code to appear.) Congratulations, you have enabled 2FA on your account! Next time, in the future when and if you need to enter a new code, just open the Google Authenticator app, look for the TIWWA code, and enter it into our website. Quick and easy! Final tip! If you are viewing TIWWA and the Google Authenticator app on the same device such as a phone or tablet, you can tap the code and it will copy it into memory for you, ready for you to paste into TIWWA.
  16. A guide to setting up Google 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) on your user account. In this day and age, it makes a lot of sense to enable what is called Two Factor Authentication (2FA) to help protect your online accounts. This is especially true for members who tend to reuse passwords on multiple sites (bad idea!), or use passwords that contain actual words, pet or family names etc. Using 2FA We offer 2FA free to our members for whom it is highly recommended. For staff member accounts, it is now a requirement. We provide 2FA via the popular Google Authenticator app. You first need to install the Google Authenticator app onto your smart phone, tablet or computer. Once set up, when or if we need you to verify your identity, you just need to enter the current code shown in the app. Every minute a new code generates. Type or copy/paste the code into our website to continue. How does it work? In simple terms, there are 2 steps: First, a one time setup process to link to your user account here, which is quick and easy to do. Basically, you install the free 2FA app onto a device that you own such as a phone, tablet or computer. You can install it from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. If you are doing this for the first time, the app will appear blank, but don't worry, just hit the + button in the app. Our set up process will give you a special unique setup code to link the app to our website, that you enter into the app. You can also do this for as many other websites as you like, just give each one a unique name inside the app so you know which code to use on the website you are using. Then once set up and when needed, such as when logging in from a new device or accessing a sensitive part of your account details, we will send a one-time 2FA passcode to the free app (that you installed during setup). How does help secure my account? The principle is that the 2FA code expires after approximately 60 seconds and will only work on the device you configured. Therefore, as only you have access to your phone, tablet device etc, only you can respond with the required response code it that it displays, before it expires. A little timer counts down in the app, if it is more than half way, just wait for it to automatically change to the next code, so you are not rushed. Although a potential hacker may have guessed or acquired you username/email address and site password, because they wouldn't also have the second device in the 60 seconds or so that the code is valid, they cannot access the account.
  17. Blimey, that's interesting. For 3 reasons... Its complete news to me! I was reading an article about him David Chase I stumbled across in the wee small hours of this morning (about the specifically open to interpretation ending of The Sopranos) and it mentioned how David Chase is one of those writers who likes to leave somethings to the audience. This made me think immediately of Chris Carter, and the numerous times Sarah-Jane Redmond has said in interviews that likes this aspect of him both as far as the audience is concerned but also for his actors, in terms of being left to define Lucy Butler to a large extent for herself. I can't remember but it will come back to me. It may be that Chase didn't create Millennium so his influence may not have been the same as with his own specific creations.
  18. 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
