  1. Those Who Kill

    I'll have to check it out...
  2. Beware Of The Dog

    I second (of third?) the Morgan and Wong musical influence seen here and also in the season 2 opener with the Talking Heads tune. Of course, there is Bobby Darren here too.
  3. Skull and Bones

    This episode would be a great conversation piece for an interview with Chip Johanessen. It may be a little hard to tell from my post 2 years ago, but Chip is my favorite Millennium writer. I realize that after the end of season 2, the Millennium Group was heading for more devious territory, and this was another episode that fleshed this out. I like story arcs. Skull and Bones is good, but it has some significant questions moreso than interesting dangling end-of-episode plot threads.

    I could see that. The show had a lot of great influences, some of which were applied in a subtle manner. I would be surprised if Mark did not provide a commentary on this episode's plot on a previous post. He did that with so many episodes. I remember Mark having rather detailed posts regarding "Owls" and "Roosters," as well as Bardo Thodol.
  5. US Navy Map of the Future

    Even James Lovelock has recanted his belief about global warming in that he thought we would be living in the Arctic by now, or close to this. More MSNBC article excerpts: Lovelock pointed to Gore's “An Inconvenient Truth” and Tim Flannery's “The Weather Makers” as other examples of “alarmist” forecasts of the future...”The problem is we don't know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn't happened,” Lovelock said. “The climate is doing its usual tricks. There's nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now,” he said. “The world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time... it (the temperature) has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising -- carbon dioxide is rising, no question about that,” he added...Asked if he was now a climate skeptic, Lovelock told msnbc.com: “It depends what you mean by a skeptic. I'm not a denier.” He said human-caused carbon dioxide emissions were driving an increase in the global temperature, but added that the effect of the oceans was not well enough understood and could have a key role. “It (the sea) could make all the difference between a hot age and an ice age,” he said. 'I made a mistake' As “an independent and a loner,” he said he did not mind saying “All right, I made a mistake.” He claimed a university or government scientist might fear an admission of a mistake would lead to the loss of funding.” Beware the hoax of global warming.
  6. US Navy Map of the Future

    That's a tough pic to post without an explanation. It puts Utah, which has the third highest mean elevation in the US, totally under water. It puts Kings Peak, the highest point in Utah at 13,500 feet under water as well.
  7. Who was dead at Watt's desk?

    I second the "Scott Osselhoff" Theory!
  8. Beware Of The Dog

    I guess the satellite dish was what The Old Man used to get Peter's fax in "Owls." Wireless technology was pretty new back then, but this is the cutting edge Millenium Group we are talking about.
  9. New Night Stalker News

    More Night Stalker would be really cool.
  10. It initially seemed like the standard third season review. They did have some additional information regarding the crew. After seeing "Human Essence" as one of their favorites from the third season, I wish they would have gone into a little more detail with the reasons for their favorites, though.
  11. Season 2 Guest Stars

    I went with Darren on December 23rd! I found all of the actors mentioned to be good in those episodes. I liked Dean Winters in Matryoshka too, which Wally Dalton also played a small part in. Alex Diakun made a good devil too! I think it is a credit to the writers that they can bring an actor back in another season and have them play different roles to the point of (initially) not thinking that it is the same actor.
  12. Nice transcribing! I put this on a CD to listen to in the car going to work (with the rest of the shows!). I thought Michael Perry's comments about how there could not have been a season 3 were funny.
  13. Via Dolorosa

    Thanks! I'm just trying to follow in Mark's intellectual footsteps. He was quite the "sermonizer" on everything Millenniumistic and I miss that.
  14. Your Favorite Aspect of MillenniuM

    It was had to pick just one, but I went with the exploration of evil, because that's where MIllennium started for me. That was definitely a good poll. Glad it was "brought back!"
  15. Via Dolorosa

    I tend to find myself using slangs, if not goofy slangs, to describe things. "You are what you eat" can describe many things, but exposure to things, whether by choice or by conflict with it can effect us to the point where we take on charactistics that we may not want to take on. Even some of the episodes have the undertone that one can almost become or take on the evil that they are trying to fight against. Millennium did well in showing the importance of having balance in life so that one does not dwell on negativity so much that it swallows them up. The yellow house through most of season 1 was a good example of this balance, or safety zone. These examples vary a bit, but characters like James Horn, Laura Means, and Edward from "The Pest House" seemed to have succumbed to an extent that it took a toll on their lives in varying degrees. I guess it is fair to say it took a toll on Frank after season 2, but our hero was able to pull through. I think Frank had an exceptional perception and knowledge of the evil he fought, which may have helped to protect him more than some of the other "fallen" characters.
