  1. Gotta admit I downloaded Vol 1 a few years ago because the CD was out of print, so I'm really looking forward to picking up both volumes immediately when they are released...FYI there's only 2,000 copies coming out of Vol 2 and 1,000 of Vol 1! Get it while you can.
  2. Welcome! You came to the right place. I've been a member here for a few years and I return here every once in a while to check in. Have you heard about the new Millennium comic? They just released the first of 5 last month. IDW Publishing released it, Joe Harris wrote it, and Chris Carter executive produced it. It is definitely a good idea to check it out and support it and hopefully we'll see Frank Black again on the screen at some level. Anyway, glad to see new members. This is who we are!
  3. I love the idea of bringing back the Owls. Not to open a can of worms, though...don't they envision the time being near around 2060? Did I read that in the Back to Frank Black book? Either way, close enough lol.
  4. My take is that the angel who shot him removed him from earth and sent him back to hell. "You have no idea how painful it is for me to be here..."
  5. It's been pretty much confirmed from all the teasers and blurbs that is in fact the route they've taken, which is odd considering Chris Carter is executive producer, and that is exactly the kind of misinterpretation he took issue with in the series. That said, still looking forward to the comic!
  6. Yes, the comic is great! I actually bought the book version that contains all 5 (I believe) of the comic issues. Hadn't read a comic in years prior to Lance's. Just got the X Files comic that brought Frank Black back a few weeks ago. Great stuff.
  7. The 10-minute clip used to be on YouTube, but a quick search didn't turn up anything. Sorry.
  8. Yes, in a great episode: "Beyond the Sea" - http://x-files.wikia.com/wiki/Beyond_the_Sea Season 1
  9. So I just typed in Idaho and it took me to the Iron Lung Man's profile from "Force Majeure." Are you referring to the professor that kept claiming that he worked with Frank, and then disappeared with the girls in the end? I liked him, too. He was great in the X-Files also.
  10. This is an excellent response; the kind that makes returning to this forum worth it. This is who we are!
  11. Jim Penseyres played by Chris Ellis - a smart Millennium Group member that added more precision and detail-oriented dialogue to the show Ardus Cohen played by Lindsay Crouse - she had great chemistry with Frank/Lance, and had a seriousness about her which complemented Frank's Maureen Murphy played by Harriet Sansom Harris - great chemistry with Frank/Lance also...love her work in The X-Files All 3 were great characters from Season 1; characters I feel should have been explored more. Certainly Harris' character was a very specific detective (sex crimes), so her inclusion in the storyline depended on the case (the same is probably true for Crouse's), but Jim Penseyres could have been in the show much more. I liked how Penseyres echoed and supplemented Frank's profiling in "The Judge."
  12. Has anyone ever noticed the similarities in tone and message between the Millennium episode "Weeds" and the X-Files episode "Red Museum" (Season 2)? In "Weeds," the perpetrator is punishing sons for the sins of their fathers. In "Red Museum," children are being abducted because they have been turned into "monsters" due to tests involving growth hormones, which were administered by the doctor who delivered them. Both perpetrators are correcting immorality, taking the hypocricy of the world into their own hands. Both perps are clearly delusional, despite their desire for morality; they just go about fixing things that can't be fixed by them; trying to fix wrongs the wrong way. It might be interesting to watch these episodes one after the other; in which order, I'm not sure.
  13. BacktoFrankBlack.com recently posted this interview conducted by Brophisticate.com. The creators of B2FB talk Millennium and their book about the seminal show. The greatest part of the interview: as far as I've seen, the first real hint of interest by Fox executives to bring Frank back in some form. Enjoy! http://brophisticate.com/please-come-back-frank-black/
  14. You got the date from "Walkabout," correct? I just noticed it the other night and checked on here to see if anyone had mentioned it before.
  15. I watched this episode for only the second time today, after skipping it the past few times I've watched the whole show marathon style. I just remember it being too hard to swallow. However, I told myself I needed to revisit it. Wow! What an amazing episode. So much of what has been said before me is spot on...it's "grounded in reality." I think it was such an important story for television. Chris Carter really did his homework ("you are not a victim, you are a survivor"). The ending was so touching: Catherine giving Connie the lock; the lock being a metaphor for Connie's secret and silence, finally ending as she told her story and tossed it down the dam waterfall. Beautiful! Thank you Chris Carter for such a real story.
  16. Welcome, Skeptical Dog! I'm re-watching in September. I'll probably never line it up so the "The Curse of Frank Black" is ready around Halloween, but I'll try.
  17. Certainly a great Season 3 episode. I agree with all the comments about what was chilling/scary, and the fact the Cheryl Andrews story in this episode dug a huge plot hole. One my favorite parts in the episode is toward the end when Emma goes to the house of, I believe, Cheryl Andrews, and there's that famous Nazareth song, "Love Hurts" playing as she walks through the house. Of course, Peter Watts shows up and scares the crap out of everyone watching.
  18. I think I'll have to watch it again before I answer as well lol
  19. Not to be petty, but since this is a Season One discussion topic, I'm replying with my "honesty" for season 1 only: The Great: The Pilot, Gehenna, Dead Letters, The Judge (my favorite ep. of all when not compared to some fantastic holiday episodes), Wide Open, The Wild & the Innocent, Force Majeure, The Thin White Line, Walkabout, Lamentation, Powers, Principalities, Thrones & Dominions, Broken World, Paper Dove The Average: 522666, Kingdom Come, Blood Relatives, The Well-Worn Lock (might be great, but I have trouble watching this ep., in fact, have never revisited it since first viewing), Weeds, Sacrament, Maranatha The Flawed: Loin Like a Hunting Flame (Ted Mann wrote/co-wrote some of my favorite eps. from the show despite being absent after the first season, but this ep. is uncomfortable to watch), Covenant
  20. I'm watching "Gehenna," and I noticed that when Mike Atkins and Frank step outside to talk about the photographs Frank was sent, they speak next to a water fountain. One might also notice that in "Powers, Principalities, Thrones and Dominions," Frank and Mike Atkins (with Peter Watts) first meet up near the water fountain in the park where a woman's neck was slit. Just something I noticed that I thought was interesting, but probably unintentional.
  21. What a tragedy, so sorry that anyone has had to deal with any of the shootings recently...my heart goes out to everyone.
