  1. Are you saying us Americans only want to see things that blow up? Though there *was* a car explosion! I love the esoteric and the ancient, I just think they could have handled it better, a bit less of a heavy/obvious hand, if you'll pardon the pun.
  2. An exceedingly tough call, but, after a series of coin flips, Lamentation wins the day over the Pilot. I was kind of surprised to see The Curse of Frank Black having garnered so many votes. Love the episode, but a mild shock, nonetheless.
  3. 1. Monster 2. The Hand of Saint Sebastian 3. A Single Blade of Grass 4. Siren 5. Anamnesis The thread running through each, for me, is that of a lost opportunity. Too much schmaltz and/or cliché trapping appear in multiple places; hell, *I* could have spotted those pseudo-Nazis following me.
  4. The top four or five for me have remained unchanged, but the next 10-15 always vary depending on mood, and sometimes, even if a particular episode is "lesser" you still enjoy watching it for whatever reason.
  5. Frank, of course! Here's a toughie, though give me the nine for desert island voyaging: Beethoven or Bach?
  6. @ethsnafu, I didn't realize AOL was still around. Terrible service years ago, see it hasn't changed. Dump 'em!

  7. Perceptions about a particular episode are bound to change over time and I've found that I enjoy this one more than I used to. Not that it was terrible, but given that season one is so incredibly strong IMO, this might be considered a 'lesser' episode. Plus there are always bonus points for blood.
  8. Man, I haven't seen Terror Train in years. They used to show that on Cinemax all the time. Nothing beats a slasher flick where the bad guy resembles the mutant offspring of Albert Einstein and Mark Twain.
  9. Is a "subliminal" messaging tape any more ridiculous than angels and demons? :) As Frank said, the group will either get her power on their side or destroy it. I don't think a point-by-point explanation is necessary, as Millennium was never a procedural cop show (thankfully) but something much more layered. Concerning Catherine, much of Frank's grieving occurred off-screen, this was merely a chance at closure. Regardless of how one feels about the group's machinations in 3.1 and 3.2, Frank was still a bit on the angry side of the fence and less prone to contemplating on just what his wife meant to him, so I think it played a bit better later on. Just my opinion. Whether 3.12 was written with any ulterior motive, others are far better equipped than I to say, but I think it was a very moving episode (how could you not feel for the dude when coming back to 1910 Ezekiel) and given that the MG was now the bad guy, done with restraint. I still think they should have had Watts more open (to Frank) in helping him out (you know the group held the sword of Damocles over him and his family), but that's veering into another topic. I think this episode was less about carefully plotted intrigue than one man coming to grips with the loss of 'his center.' Plus it's always cool to see Giebelhouse again.
  10. 1.Via Dolorosa/Goodbye To All That (obviously can't separate the two) 2.Omerta 3.Antipas 4.The Sound of Snow 5.Thirteen Years Later...
  11. Can't forget about the pickaxe of the Nostradamus Nutball.
  12. For me, season one is, outside of particular seasons of The Simpsons - admittedly, a genre nearly 180° from Millennium - the finest season of television that I have yet seen. But I've got no problem straddling the fence and praising two and three, both of which have some of my all time favorites. I've actually vacillated a bit on season two over the years, mainly because I prefer the the Group confronting Evil® bit by bit as a "new" thing (I'm thinking specifically of the reactions of Frank and Peter in Maranatha; "do you really believe that?") versus the thousand-year old deal, though since I love the arcane and esoteric, two is higher on some days than others. I wish more people realized just how good the proverbial red-headed stepchild of the franchise is. Even some of those probably forgotten episodes such as Closure or Nostalgia benefit from reviewings.
  13. Normally, I'd fully expect 1000 years of the same old crap, but assuming humanity hits 3012 might be a bit of a stretch.
  14. Hell, I'll pretend to be a believer for a free trip. I haven't been on a vacation in years. Eternal city, here I come!
  15. Now there's a fresh angle, stick figure renditions of Millennium. Good luck finding Fabricant's kidney now, Lucy Butler!
