  1. Well, growing up in a spooky old farm house, I can tell a lot of ghost stories! Ok... I don't remember this, because I was just a 2 year old baby, but when my parents moved into this place, they went through that period of time where everything is still in boxes, there's hardly any furniture, and you can hear a mouse fart it's so quiet. Well, one afternoon, one of them realized the keys were missing. They were a young couple, and only had one set of keys. It had everything. House key, and car keys both. Well, they searched the house upstairs and downstairs, but there weren't that many places for keys to hide. As I said, they had boxes in some places, but most of the rooms were empty. Finally, they gave up, and sank onto the couch. (one of the 2 pieces of furnature that were actually in the place) They were frustrated, and tired. Now they'd have to have new keys made for everything. The cars, the VW bus, and the house. WOW, that was gonna be a ton of money, and a pain in the ass. *CHINK* In the next room, they heard the unmistakable sound of keys, hitting the floor! They ran into the room, which was TOTALLY empty,.... and there they lay, in the very middle of the open room, as if they dropped from thin air......... Oooooooo
  2. I love the quote, too! Hey, the dress is really REALLY comfortable, too! Oh, mustn't forget the sunglasses. I'm sure I'll loose them somewhere, but, anyway..............
  3. Probably the yellow and pink sundress I got last week. (for only 2 dollars!!!)
  4. Yeah, it kinda icked me out, at first. The whole thing with getting a finger in the mail....and then the thing with the foot! WOW. When they found the guy, and said he'd tried to make a tourniquet outta his belt.... That was just really disturbing to think about. But, it was just this kind of grit that made this a great episode.
  5. Oh..... This is gonna get me inspired to get back into the weekly habbit! *grin* (been a bit down lately, but I bet a doze of MM could help!) The Judge is one of my favorites from Season 1. It's just "real" enough to be believable, but with that spooky quality that can really get to you. This kind of blend of the borderline paranormal, set against a backdrop of "Yeah, I could see that happening" just really makes this an excellent one!
  6. Really? Wow... I've been outta the loop for WAY too long!
  7. I kinda missed a week too. No natural disastors to blame it on. Just feeling under the weather and a lot of other crap. Trying to get back to "regularly scheduled programming" this week!
  8. Raven-- Wow.... I can just see him saying that. I can almost hear it and see the expression on his face. damn, I like to see that man act! You know, he's the only thing that made "Gunflighter's Moon" watchable in the slightest! LOL ---Wolf P.S. yeah, it is kinda fun posting after you
  9. "Gehenna" O.K. I know I've probably already said a lot of this in my interview for this episode for Graham....but I thought Gehenna flowed wonderfully, following in the wake of the Pilot. The weird thing is....I actually read this before I ever saw it, which actually made seeing it even better! I had a deeper understanding of what was going on, since the novel gave some back-story. That's why I then went and read the novel for the Pilot, which explained some things I hadn't understood when I saw it for the first time. Like.... in the Pilot, I didn't realize at first that the guy that The Frenchman picked up, in the park, was gay, and that the park was a gay hang out. Anyway.... Gehenna is just an excellent creep-factor show. It's almost Halloween spooky or something. Don't you think?
  10. Well, it's almost Friday again! I'd origionally planned for doing this on every Friday, but jumped the gun last week. I'm trying to be patient this week.
  11. Thanks. Guess we'll meet back after "Gehenna"!
  12. Excellent! You guys hit on exactly my top picks for best moments in the Pilot. If you break apart all the elements, you can see it is a masterfully crafted work of art. There is a perfect balance of horror, beauty, romanace, bravery, humor....and, as Frank puts it, "Paralyzing fear". When I watch any of the new crime dramas on today, they all seem "campy". Like they are trying too hard. Almost like some teenagers who want to be rock stars, and sing their hearts out, but they just have that polished class. This weekend kinda got outta hand, and I didn't get to do the "double feature" of throwing in Gehenna as well, like I'd planned. So, I'll be patient and wait till Friday. (at it's regularly scheduled time...lol)
  13. Terry found this for me. Remember the scene in MM Jose Chung's Doomsday Defence, in the intro, when he starts describing his past, and they show a blip of some show that Chung supposedly did a cameo in? Well, it's real!!!! And here's the You-Tube link!
  14. That's the spirit!!! Nice to have you back! Ok.... I'm going to treat this like a season, sort of, as silly as that sounds. Since Millennium was origionally on friday nights, I was going to reserve this for Friday, but last night, I finally thought "what the heck?" and decided to do the Pilot last night, and Gehenna tonight, and pretend it's a season 2 part opener or something. So, I watched the first one last night. It's actually been about 2 years since I watched that one. The last time was when I was introducing my friend Chris to the series. Anyway here's how last night went. It was weird, at first, because I've seen that first scene so many times I did not think it would really have much of an impact, but I realized I couldn't help thinking of all the crap/fluff crime dramas on today (more than 10 years later,....you'd think they would have gotten BETTER), and I thought, "Y'know, this almost looks dated.....but, now that I think about it, it just seems out of place because it's so much more intense and gritty and carries so much more drama than anything else out there. I was not prepaired for how the scene where they first arrive at the yellow house would impact me, though. When they all arrived there, Catherine exclaining "Oh, Frank, you had it painted!" I just lost it. I guess I associate it too much with MY yellow house. Anyway....... I must say, even after all these years, the Pilot has not lost any of it's punch, and I'm looking forward to "Gehenna" tonight (at Millennium's regularly scheduled time! LOL)
  15. I just enjoy the experience, starting from the beginning. And, yes, with all the chaos out there, creating a tad of structure like this can be somewhat comforting as well. BTW, chaos reigns again. I couldn't get the DVD player to work last night, so I'm going to have to get Terry to look at it. I shall return.
  16. Everyone is invited to take a trip back down some familior roads, and imagine you're there for the first time. Get in your cumfy chair, turn the lights off, light candles, get potato chips or whatever you want, and take time out for yourself....at least ONCE a week, and watch Millennium! In this thread, I invite everyone to just come in and post as if it were for the first time. You're free to take a trip down memory lane, and recall what was going on in your life when you first saw Millennium, and (if you like) where you are now...... Try to recapture the magic it brought to you when you first saw it, and post about it in this thread. No structure needed. You can start at the beginning, or jump around between favorites. Whatever you want to do. Basically, I'm trying to rekindle what made this group, and "Multitude of Voices" so great that it spawned this diverse, and long lasting online community that is unlike any other I have found! So, starting this week....the first week of the month, pick an episode, and take some time out for yourself. At this time in all of our lives, I think we deserve a tad of self-indulgence!
  17. Thanks, Libby! I think I'll start it today! And, yes, I was thinking of pinning it too, because it'll get buried pretty quickly! Thanks for being a cheerleader. I need all the pep-talks I can get....
  18. I like "This Week, on Millennium". I might even start the topic thread right here.... maybe even today! Libby, should I pin it, so it doesn't get lost? (and, as for posting about Frank being *hot*, I think we ladies could do with a good healthy dose of that as well! )
  19. Thanks, Libby! And, according to your info under your name, you've been here since January, 03. I have, too, though my info says March. That's because, when I 1st joined, I was NEW to the internet (and computers in general), and I was still "finding myself". I actually joined with the name "Black Wolf", but within a month, I wanted to change it to reflect my passion for Native American spirituality. It wasn't very easy to change your name here then, but, thanks to Graham (who has helped me with SO MUCH), it got changed, in March. Yes, I've been remembering Joe and the quest he and his wife went through, to adopt that beautiful little boy. That's the luckiest little boy in the world, to have parents like those two! As many of you know (Libby in particular), the past several months have been very unpleasant and stressful to me as well, and I am still trying to find a way to live again, and get back to the lfie I know I am meant to live. So....... When does everyone want to start this project? And, should I start a "This week, on Millennium" thread?
  20. Earthnut, I'm not sure I understand your question. Can you please re-state? Keeping it simple, probably here in the main discussion forum....nothing to cluttery so people get lost. Maybe someone could start a thread called "Las Time, On Millennium", or "Millenniumistic experience for the week", or something silly like that. Like the coffee lounge, just somewhere to go to and, starting with the Pilot, re-watch each one, and share thoughts and feelings in that thread. I'm probably making this complicated, and I mean it to be simple. This idea is a "Back to Basics", "Comfort Food" kinda thing. It's been so long, and we've all come so far in our lives (and some of us are busy sliding downhill into a big pile of doo-doo...) that it may have lost it's luster for us. Time to revive that, I think.
  21. As some of you know..... this year has been an extreamly challenging and stressful one. I keep coming back here, because this is home to me. You people are my family. And, as I have been here now for ...... (is it 8 years???? god, I feel old!!!!), I see so many new faces, and trusted friends I've known for years. I don't know about the rest of you, but as Millennium actually got me through a very difficult time in my life, I just thought it'd be nice if all of us went through the episodes from beginning to end, and shared the experience here each day. No set day or time to watch, since we all have challenging lives and schedules. But, just to try to each take out time for ourselves and start back at the beginning, and share the experience here, as if it were all new. I would really enjoy that experience, as I find great comfort in the wonderful friends I have here. Let me know what you think!
