  1. To start this 2017 I wanted to give U something special. This song is called "Volver" (1935) that means to return. I tried to translate it the best I could and also I took another translations from other pages to make it better. The bad thing is that of course when you have something written like poetry, you always lose something. And in Tango music, lyrics has been always very important. They even have a language called lunfardo...but that is another story....haha. They way is written is amazing...right in the heart.. Aaaaaannyway, this song always got me...and for me Carlos Gardel was or better yet, IS out of this world...I've always called him the Martian haha. So, here is the lyrics and the song. Hope U enjoy them!! To return (1935) Lyrics by: Alfredo Lepera Music by: Carlos Gardel I imagine the flickering of the lights that in the distance are marking my return. They are the same ones that illuminated with their pale reflections, deep hours of pain. And though I didn't want to return you always return to your first love. The tranquil street where the echo said yours is her life, yours is her love. Under the mocking gaze of the stars that, with indifference, today see me return. To return With the withered forehead, the snows of time have silvered my temples. To feel that life is a puff of wind. that twenty years is nothing, that the feverish look, wandering in the shadow, looks for you and names you. To live... with the soul clutched to a sweet memory that I cry once again. I am afraid of the encounter with the past that returns to confront my life. I am afraid of the nights that, filled with memories, shackle my dreams. But the traveler that flees sooner or later stops his walking. And although the oblivion, who destroys all, has killed my old illusion. I keep concealed a humble hope that is my heart's whole fortune. To return With the withered forehead, the snows of time have silvered my temples. To feel that life is a puff of wind. that twenty years is nothing, that the feverish look, wandering in the shadow, looks for you and names you. To live... with the soul clutched to a sweet memory that I cry once again.
  2. I always liked the name "The Frank Black files" to do a show specially because the name "Millennium", obviously wouldn't have any sense now. So I did a couple of pics just to see how it could look nowadays

  5. From time to time, I try to make photos to tweet to Fox. I think the best chance that the fans have for a movie is to make noise and say to Fox: We want our hero back.
  6. I did this to celebrate the 20th anniv. And again, to tweet to FOX!

  8. AWeeeeesomeeeeeeeeeeeee Ps: Lucy B. likes this too!
  9. I liked that episode...yes the girl was kind of Jason Bourne suddenly...but her dad worked in the FBI so let´s think that maybe she knew stuff. Thinking about that scene, the cool think about it is that once again the Watts seemed like regular people but in a second they are danger. Even Peter´s wife looked weird in my opinion sometimes...So I guess the daughter was no exception. Anyway I liked it because we got to know more things about the MG and we could see also Frank helping his friend. Yes, they had conflict but they always helped each other when times got really bad. And that is what friends do. The scene that finally Watts ask Frank for help was great acting. Terry and Lance were fantastic. And the last scene was strong. No words. Everybody knew what was going on. But they choose not to say it. That kind of things made the show special. They trusted the audience. We know what was going on. So, they don´t have to explained everything like most movies or shows that explain 10 times what you just saw (I hate that XD) ps: it´s been a long time since I can´t attach images :-( don´t know why
  10. Yes. I think the only chance we got is a tv movie. thank U all for the comments! :-)
  11. Another pic to twitter Fox for the return of our hero.
  12. Kind of disagree here hahaha :P I can understand using Jordan as a link to Frank but like I´ve said before, I didn´t like the idea of a "gift". And Lucy´s character was very interesting in her first appearence. For me, that is all. Then, it became cartoonish. If you give the devil a face and "I am evil...blablala" for me it becomes boring and silly. In "Lamentation" you knew that this woman was something else...but that was it. Of course, Redmond was awesome in all her episodes and it would be a pleasure to see her. In fact, if the devil has those eyes...mmm...I´m definitely in trouble XD Maybe that is the reason why I didn´t like one bit the first comic of Millennium. (spoilert alert). It was based on Jordan´s gift and Lucy hunting Frank. Too supernatural for my taste. It fits perfectlu with those boring shows that are taking over the TV. I like the supernatural when it is around, like MG history. But beneath that, it was the lust for power and control. And that will be always there as long as a human lives.
  13. That scene when Sauron speaks to Aragorn (trying to seduce him like he did before with Isildur) and then Aragorn turns to Gandalf (who´s face has turned to stone fearing that Aragorn has turned into evil) and says: "For Frodo" and starts running forward facing the end. To watch your King doing that...plus the next to follow him are the 2 little hobbits screaming...always gets me :) No matter if it is a movie, to see people facing the worst and saying: "F***** it, I have to go anyway!" always inspires. Maybe that is why I like Frank Black character so much. ps: sorry about the f**** but I think that is the exact expression for that kind of situation XD
  14. "A day may come when your courage and mine will fail. A day may come when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it will not be THIS day. THIS day we fight". Did you know Earthnut that exact speech was used in "The Return of the King" (LOFT)? Aragon gives that speech to his army when they are standing outside Sauron's fortress, trying to make them fight outside to give clear road to Frodo to reach the Mount Doom to destroy the ring. (yes, that was totally nerdy hahaha) Anyway, everytime Mr. Carter was asked about Millennium possible return, he said that he could do that but it would be focus in Frank's character, not in the MG. That it would have to be something new. So, I guess it would have "the Pilot" spirit. I'll bet the first scene with Frank would be him taking the newspaper, like he did in "the pilot" and in the first episode of the third season. I always thought that Mr. Carter did that scene in the third season as a statement like "I'm back in the show" (due he was out in the whole 2 season). And though I loved most of the ideas of the 2 season, (all the mystique around the Mg and the idea of controlling the world) I didn´t enjoy the idea of Jordan having also the "gift". The original idea was that Frank could do what he did because of his hard work and knowledge of evil people, not because he was somekind of clairvoyant. He wasn´t born with a gift. So I understand and support why Lance was mad about that change. I think Mr. Carter was also annoyed by that because that changed completly the character (in my opinion, baddly. It turned him in some kind of comic hero with powers). And doing that, you can´t relate with the character and that, I think is one of the keys of Frank´s character. To sympathize with a person who suffers and loses everything to protect his family and all that is good.
  15. yes...I hope Mr. Carter hurries up! Here is a millianistic song by Johnny Cash...btw people: what do U think is the story about the polaroid man?
  16. To show that Millennium wasn´t always about darkness.
  17. thanks seesthru! :) Imagine if someone could gather Carter, Morgan, Wong and some of the other writers of the show and have a director like...Chris Nolan or better yet, David Fincher (from Seven, the inspiration of the show) to make a movie...and have Lance with actors like Gary Oldman, Ralph Fiennes, etc...damn! I wanna a MoVIE! XD
  18. you worked in a prison??? Damn! changing the subject, I recently found a site where I could finally download the Millennium Comic. I have only seen the covers because as U can imagine, I can´t find it in my country :-( Now...I´ve got to say... I think it is terrible. The story was way too X-files, too paranormal and boring. I think it focus in the wrong spot. I wish they did like Peter Jackson did when he was shooting the Lord of The Rings. He consulted the fandom periodically. Anyway, even the drawings are awful. In fact, I actually have to read in the dialog to find out who was supposed to be Frank (Lance). I guess the person who did the covers didn´t draw the rest of the comic ´cause the covers are pretty cool. have anyone read the comics?? Thoughts?
  19. Hi Libby! and yes, be my guest and start it :-) And though I know for example that this show is based a lot of stories on real cases, it is not the same for me to read testimonies of real people talking about them. I rarely watch war documentaries for example...too much for me. If it is fiction bring it on, like horror movies haha but real people, real cases...mmm...nop thanks :P
  20. In our country (Argentina) we have an artist that among other things composes music and sings, write books and has a great radio show (the show must be at least 30 years old). And because of the knowledge that he has (he talks about world history and philosophy in the show and later he does improv humor with magazine articles or made up stories) they asked him in an interview how did he see the world, the things that happen nowdays, the new technology. After mixing a serious talk with some funny remarks, finally he ended up saying something like "Yes, mankind sure evolved but also evolved everything that goes with it. So, we can say that evil evolved too". "Evil evolved too". I remember thinking that was totally a Frank Black line. That´s why I still believe that we can use a character like Frank nowdays. I think he can help us better than watching another crappy marvel superhero, that seems to ruled Hollywood now. At least for what, the last 15 years?
  21. don´t mention it :) I was going to leave a pic but I can´t upload it. It says "you can only upload 0mb". I guess it´s right hahaha :P
  22. hahahaha...yes, but the actor that plays Glenn also is making a movie during the first month of new season...so...who knows?
  23. In the original photo, Lance was listening to I guess who must have been the director (on the right side of the photo). That´s why he looks so concentrated. So that was perfect. I wanted a reflexive, mature, wiser Frank. That is how I imagine him today. That was also the idea of that little act that I wrote in the The Miscellaneous Thread , (that now Frank is in the MG as an "Elder").
  24. thanks Old Man! So Gladddddddd you like it :)
