  1. actually it is about to be the 20th anniversary. The pilot was aired in 1996...time flies...

    Though I agree with you seethru, gotta say that what Lance said took me by surprise, especially the detail of the gun that was used...that means that it was clearly written.

    Too bad. I liked Peter Watts character.

  2. I totally understand you Smoke Psd and Lance too about being annoyed when they changed the idea of the show. Anyway, I enjoyed most episodes of the 2 season -except for the funny episodes- because I found very interesting all the mystique part of the show and also the idea of a group of people gathering power to control the world along the years. Still today that is something that happens, and therefore we all suffer (you can see it easy with media control).


    I didn't enjoy it that much when it turned too graphic, like the virgin appearance or some episodes of Lucy B (though, she was always great with Lance. There was something there between them). For me that wasn't scary at all. Maybe the idea of evil works better when you know is there somewhere but it doesn't have a form so your fear enters to the equation to trick your mind and then things starts to happen.


    I agree that if there wasn't for that shift, the show would turn into "the killer of the week" and got boring after 1 season, like CSI did. Also, maybe they tried to achieve so much things...relationships, the apocalypse, conspiracies, human mind, evil etc...in so little time that sometimes things got right and others got out of hands, like the 3 season. I think it has great episodes and others not so good. But for me, the interesting ones were when the MG and Watts were involved. If that happened, you would have a great story and Lance acting more accurate.

  3. I think this kind of show has always things that make U said: "huh? Why?", specially when you have a lot of people writing episodes and the head of the show (Chris Carter) is absent. Sometimes great stuff came up, sometimes...you know haha.
    (recently I found somewhere a site that actually had a lot of episodes dubbed in Russian).

    I think Frank needed help with his gift because he knew that if he couldn't control it, he would go insane (like he did in the past) and  then, would lose his family for good. That´s why he seeked the MG. Catherine was the only one that knew that something was wrong with them (maybe Jordan too). And the MG knew that they needed a weak Frank  so he would join them. That`s why Catherine was killed. Frank was stronger with her on his side. In that case, he wouldn't do some of the things that the MG would ask him to do. If he was weaker (without Catherine), it would be easier to break him. And they did it for a while. When Frank got suspicious with the MG, all hell broke lose and he ended up losing everything. He was alone fighting to recover Jordan costedy.

    I think Lara needed the MG because she knew she couldn´t resist any longer the overwhelming power of her gift. If U think about it, she has nothing to lose. She was kind of doom anyway.

    Old age brings wisdom perhaps?

    I guess we change with time...that is why maybe you focus on different things every time you watch it. I think that proves that the show is a good piece of art...you know...something that makes you think or feel different things every time you see it.

  4. thanks seethru! The episode is "Exegesis" and the audio is from the last part when Frank is talking to Hollis and then he bought a butterfly for Jordan. The episode ends with Lance´s voice, Frank playing with Jordan and if I don´t recall badly, the little girl that was left with the old woman (who was kind of an oracle, or something...don´t know the right world...that the government use to spy...) taking an airplane.

  5. Hi Millennium freaks! haha. I leave U a very small clip that I did. Each time I saw a begining of an episode with the quotes, I remembered an intro of a song and thought "it would be great for this show". So, I did something with it. Here it is.

    the link in youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmIYK_99m9I&feature=em-upload_owner

    or if U want to see it in better quality, here is the link to download it. It does it in about 5 minutes.

    (hurry because it only for a few days)

     

    Hope U all had a great 2015 and a better 2016.

    ps1: get Well soon Darlene!!!

    ps2: have you all noticed the homage that Millennium did to the movie "The Omen" in that episode that Lucy Buttler is a nanny? Funny thing is Lance worked in "The Omen 2"

     

     

  6. Hey Libby! Well...here it is :)

    I still think they had nothing to do with the show. It doesn't matter if Larry David or Woody Allen come with a script for Millennium. It is simple not the nature of the show and that, has no point of return. If you create a show like Millennium, you just can´t show me a character like Frank for 1 year...a guy who was determined to be surrounded by complete darkness just to learn how he can protect his family, a guy who has the will to stand for what he believes is right, the depth of his fears which everybody can relate with, how he ends up losing his family, the horror of the human mind and society and then have a freaking demon dancing or demons eating donuts in a coffe shop. Am I watching a Simpsons Halloween episode? Or a character that makes fun of Frank. Wow, now I guess I must be watching a Seinfeld episode.

    For me, that is the definition of bad writers. The basic of good writing is to understand the show and how the characters are. If U don´t follow that rule, you have nothing. So, all that they build all the credibility that Frank had, all that they sold me were lost in those episodes. You just can´t have "the hand of St Sebastian" one week and then do that Twister Sister episode with the goofy guy that censors shows and shots Mulder. What was that? Wth am I watching? All changes of the show, the spiritual episodes, conspiracies, etc...ok...fine: why? because Frank was the same, Catherine was the same, Watts was the same, etc...yes, there might be some little twists in the characters but the world, the scenario and its rules were the same.

    To resume, because I can go on and be even more boring than this :P haha, do the following: watch "Jose Chung...", "some how the devil..." and the other with Kiss. Then, watch the "pilot" or (I don´t know) "The Thin White Line", "Luminary" (My God...Luminary) or one with the twist of the MG like "Skull and Bones" or "The Innocents"  for example. And then tell me if it is the same show. If those, episodes really are in the same world.

    Anyway, here is something that I found special...Long story short: Lance´s facebook announced that there would be a new podcast with Lance...so everybody sent questions...I did it and of course, it was about the show. They publicated the interview recently and...they asked Lance my question :P  That´s is not really the point of me writing this. The point is Lance´s answer about Peter Watts. Here it is. The full podcast is still in Lance´s facebook. And it has some very funny moments. Enjoy! This is for U Earthnut! Welcome BACK!!

    He knew ahead of time.  He told Frank it was coming, the day was coming.  And it did.  So I think, he had an escape plan.  The only doubt I have that he survived is because he wasn't in that X-files crossover. No final showdown  between Watts and Frank, and the zombies.  Ugh.  Didn't like that episode, but adored the end bit.

    haha, agree but I will always be thankful for trying to give the fans some kind of closure towards Frank and Jordan. I don´t think they have time to include Peter and also, it would be too complicated to the X-files fans to explain who he was. I think he is alive because he knew, like you said Seesthu and also because Tv always shows from every possible angle when they kill a very important character.

    I agree that a new topic about the comedic MM episodes would be a good idea. Those episodes have always provoked different opinions, and it would be good to have a discussion. If no-one else (maybe you'd want to do this, FBJr ?) starts a new topic in the next couple of days, I'd be willing to do it.

    go for it Libby! Maybe it would be better if it starts with someone who actually liked them...honestly, I  reaaally don`t like them a bit :P

    Millennium is an exception in that most major cast and crew have come back to talk about it about years after the the fact. Even though Terry O'Quinn is one of the few not among them I won't hold that against him though. The amount that he's worked with 1013 and Chris Carter speaks for itself.

    totally...Terry rules!

  11. It was something like...Kiss had a contract with Fox to promote their new cd with Peter and Ace "Psycho Circus" so they appeared in a lot of Fox shows. This one is one of them. I like Kiss because my brothers listen to them so I kind of grew up with their music. With that said, for me, I always skip that episode while I watch the dvds. It is terrible :P

    I really don´t like humor in Millennium or stories that has nothing to do -in my opinion of course- with the show.

  12. I guess Frank changes from season to season. In fact, I think that is one of the reasons why Lance didn't like the direction of show after season 1. "Borrowed time" (I believe that is the name of that great episode, the one that has the train accident and the man with the watch) Frank talks with that man, who is an angel or more likely Death because he is coming for Jordan. And if U know that...and still remain agnostic...well...But again, I think Frank changes. His best partner for me was Lara and she sees angels. And also knows that Jordan is going that road. But now that U mention one of the episodes that really bothered me was that one with that girl that sees a virgin. When she talks to Catherine ( who of course doesn't believe her) and tell her all about the polaroid man. And then, Catherine doesn't react a bit. How in the world could she knew that if she doesn't have some kind of a gift? Did she saw it in Catherine´s facebook? Wth? hahaha :P

  13. I agree. Not a fan of religion but I really like when the writers search historical things, or why not religious, and the second season is full of amazing info. Lucy was too in the face for my taste. I liked the first episode, when she was married with that terrible Dr. And the idea of being a regular/common person of the other episode was very interesting. "Love is blue". The others when it was more about evil...not my kind of thing...to easy for this show. But the actress was great so I liked them anyway. Of course this is an opinion but I enjoy more the idea of evil rather than see a woman/man acting as the devil. In every season, I have episodes that I like and others that I will never undertstand what they were thinking hahaha.

  14. mmm...there was a woman...in that episode where they talked about a nuclear bomb...She was part of the MG and was very angry with them. I remember she was very agressive with Peter Watts. I liked her hahaha. Remember? That episode that starts with the suicide of an agent. And it was about the first atomic explosion. Cool episode.

    btw: that pic freak me out. It was the episode when Catherine was kidnapped and was under the car.

  15. Yes. The Millennium dvds have a couple of interviews and commentaries for each season. A lot of actors, directors, etc...except Morgan and Wong. Those documentaries say that decline the offer to appear. Anyway, in that documentaries, they talked about the Kiss episode and also show a bit of backstage of the episode. If I don´t recall badly, there was a video with Lance and Gene that was very funny.

    Btw, Terry O' Quinn doesn't appear also. Have U noticed that there aren't (I would dare to say) any videos or interviews with Terry talking about the show? Only a few when the show was on the air. But I couldn't find nothing when the show ended...you know...some video or audio where he talks about the show. I´ve always wonder about that.
