  1. hi! I think I´m going to choose "midnight of the century" because in that episode you can see a glance of what is really going on with Lara. I know in the episode with Catherine we can see more of that but I don't particularly enjoy that episode. It was too explicit for me taste. I think all the spiritual part was too much in the face, nothing was left to imagination. And there were parts of the script that were too easy for this show. The scene that really made said "what?" was when the girl told Catherine-who didn't believe her at all- all about the polaroid story and after that, she didn't react a bit. Wth? How in the world could she knew that? Okay, she knew your daughter´s name I will give you that, but the polaroid psycho? She didn't surprise you with that?? That really annoyed me. Too far with the non-believer position. Okey, you need her to be in the oposite side of Lara, fine: take that line away. Anyway in "Midnight..." Lara really opens up with Frank about her ability and what is going to happen with Jordan. I think maybe her character ended up filling the void that Watts left as a companion to Frank, though at the end, Peter redeemed himself helping -or saving you might say- Frank and Jordan at the end of the 3 season. Plus, that episode for me is a jewel. Anyway I always enjoy Lara´s episodes. If some day all the planets finally align and we have a movie, I really hope to see Kristen once again as Lara. She was great in that roll, plus she is beautiful :)
  2. Hi! Here it is finally. I did this Millennium video (and a little twist with the music) as a small homage to the show and I dedicated especially to Lance, the guys from BTFB and you guys from "This is who we are net" ;) for keeping the show alive. The thing is that I tried uploading it to youtube and vimeo but no matter what quality I used it looked awful. The video weight is around 300mb and when I download it from Youtube (after I upload it there) it weighted 23mb! (they also change the size of the video to 1280). So you can imagine the poor quality and my frustation. That´s why I uploaded to wetransfer to share it with all :) It would only takes 10-15 minutes to download it. I think it looks and sounds pretty good. The link to download will last for only a couple of days because wetransfer erase it. But if that happens and someone ask for it, of course I will upload it again. http://we.tl/F0YgOyjsQv I left you a snap from the video as a sample :) aLe :) ps: congrats for the upgrade of the SITE!!!!!! GREat work!!
  3. Hi! I kind of disagree here. I liked McClaren character. Maybe because I think the actor was great. And sure, his character was used to stop Frank. I think that is a resource of the writer. You have to have someone to get in the way of the hero because, if you don´t have it, you would have to end the show in 2 episodes. The hero must have limits to become an actual hero. Anyway, I think in many ways, he was scared for Frank and maybe, the way that he confront him was his way to protec him. Frank was pointing always to the major leagues. It's natural to be scared, come on. And keep in mind that the audience knew who Frank was plus a lot of information that, most characters simple didn´t know. We have seen what the Group is capable to do but Andy hasn't. You can´t expect him to react like Frank does. Baldwin was kind of a cliche but in the last episodes, when he started to understand who Frank was, he was making an interesting turn. Too bad they had to kill him because the writers had the idea of Emma turning into the head of the FBI because of the MG. And as a possible succesor, Baldwin had to go. Another idea that I enjoyed.
  4. Yes, but anyway I don´t think Lara is gone because of the Mg. If she wouldn't have joined them like Frank, she would probably be dead. I think they probably saved her giving her the vaccine. She must be in therapy with other candidates that probably lost their minds maybe because they couldn't handle the info that the group gave them.
  5. Hello there :) I don´t understand why consider that Catherine could be alive. In the show it was pretty clear that she died. Even Catherine´s father hated Frank because she was dead and he wasn't. Anyway, let´s say that the MG has her...what for? What could they gain with that? And after all the period that passed between the two seasons...sorry people: we all loved her but she is gone. Btw, in the Millennium dvd set Megan talks about when they told her that she would die in the second season. She actually said that she was ok with that.
  6. You are right, they are beautiful too. Totally, I´m possitve that he is alive or could be if the writers want it. They left that door open oh! Funny thing: have you all noticed that Frank, Catherine, Jordan, Watts, Lara and Andy...they all have green eyes?
  7. I think Chris Carter didn't want her dead. In fact, he was pretty mad with a lot of stuff of the second season. In the extras of the dvds of Millennium he talks about that. That he was absent during the 2 season because of the X-files movie and when he came back -it was for the third season- he couldn't ignore the changes of the show and he did what he could. Despite the fact that I really liked Catherine, I have to say that I enjoy a lot when the writers do such tremendous changes. Think about it: to sacrifice a main character...man....that is something. As an audience, my head says "wow...everything can happen in this show" and that keeps you sharp. Maybe like the walking dead. I don´t read the comic book, so I have no idea what is going to happen. And when a character suddenly dies, that is always shocking because of that: anything goes in that show. Lara...such an interesting character. It was always great when she was around. She was the only one that knew what Frank was going through. Maybe that´s why they were so connected. Btw, regarding Lara (Kristen) I read that there was a post of something like the most Scrumptious Female Guest Star...well...of course she wasn't a guess, but I got to say she was the most beautiful woman that ever appeared in that show. Ok, so she sees angels flying around...emmmm..but again...who is perfect anyway
  8. thanks guys! You know, I like the title "the Frank Black archives" for a movie. Haven´t thought a prequel...maybe because I can´t imagine Frank Black without Lance.
  9. I would like to add another one (I didn't care too much for "the judge" either. That could be a Steven Segal movie...anyway... ) that I remember it was kind of annoying for me in those days (actually, I still skip what episode) and that was "Omerta". I still don´t know what they wanted to do with that show. The only thing that I can think of that I actually enjoyed was the last dialogue with Lance and Jon Polito (playing the mafia guy who was cured by Lhasa). Maybe it was too X-files for me. Anyway, I will never understand why the writers have always the obligation to write a Christmas episode. This show isn't "friends" guys come on. But, one second thought, if they managed to write "Midnight of the century" -fantastic episode- maybe I´m wrong.
  10. I remember when Frank said "she was a friend..." I thought: "what? she tried to kill u!" But...didn't she actually save Frank in one episode? (correct me if I am wrong). Anyway, this episode is one of my fav of Season 3. It was like a movie all along. Very complex shoots, great acting. And the tension between Emma and Peter was great. And how she started to understand why Frank reacted the way he did when the MG was near. And it showed Emma what happened to dissidents. Also I liked the way the MG turned into something awful in the name of good. That bipolar thought is very scary and interesting. And all the stories that indicates that they were behind of a lot of things that happened in the past: good or terrible was very clever because that gave the audience an idea of the magnitude and power that these people had. Maybe that amount of people that they killed was also made with that intention, to show the impunity and power that the MG had. And again, that idea of "this terror must be done to protect people" is still terrifying because we all know that it is real. People considered threats because of the way they think is still out there and for me, this is one the reasons why I think Mr Carter says that he still considers to bring back Millenniumm. Let´s hope the x-files works again...maybe his little brother could join it later :)
  11. it´s natural to get confused because it is amazing how many stories and info the show managed to deliver in only 3 seasons. Yes, Watts wife totally new about the Group. I recall Peter telling something to Catherine in a sarcastic tone, about being more supportive to Frank. I think it was in "luminary", like Seesthru said. Great episode. Is it too much coincidence to think that episode was based on the book "Into the wild"? The book is from 1996. I didn't know about that book until I saw the movie (wich is from 2007). I thought: "Hey....this is a Millennium episode...wth? Even the character name is the same.
  12. thanks Simon! Yes, a movie! that would be awesome.
  13. I think Peter in some episode noticed Jordan ability but I couldn´t say for sure... thank u Earthnut! The thing is that I lost the original (psd) file but I have the base of that pic in a email that I share with the guys from BTFB. It's bigger but it has different color and way less quality. Anyway, I´ll try to match it with the avatar and then upload it to the gallery for U. Also I had a few more pics that I did. Hope U like them too. cheers!
  14. that is kind of odd for me because Catherine character was great! It was sad when she left but it opened the door to a lot of changes to the show. I didn't think: "Great! Now that she is gone the show will be better!" No way. I thought "Ok. let´s see what happens to Frank now that she´s gone". I remember that in some episodes Catherine was feeling distant from Frank and Jordan, as they were getting more tied because of their gift. That side could had been very interesting to explore. Anyway, for me Catherine was Frank´s rock. Maybe that´s why they killed her. They knew she would never trust the MG. After Catherine left, Frank become more vulnerable to the MG. He was alone against them with Jordan. Maybe Jordan was also the back up plan to get Frank. I think Frank knew that. That´s why he got so mad everytime Peter was near her. Even Jordan could have ended up being a new candidate!
  15. totally agree with both of U. Also, about Catherine, I remember that the assistant Director Andy McClaren told Frank in one episode that he liked Catherine because she keep him sane (what a great character and actor, btw). And yes, that show when Frank remembers that he was with her in the woods when she died, was kind of a relief for all us viewers. It was a little less sad, you could say.
  16. I did this for all the Millennium fans. Hope U like it! Frank Black Jr.
  17. you know, after watching the photos that Simon Black uploaded, I remember the scene that Frank gathered with Watts in the forrest, remember? Watts was wearing different clothes but during the rest of the episode, I think it was clear that more days went by and Watts doesn´t appear anymore. Even Frank changes clothes.
  18. I started to watch the show mostly ´cause of the X-files. The funny thing is that later I lost total interest in the X-files but I was captured by Millennium. The music intro, the mood of the show, the scripts, and of course, Lance Henriksen as Frank Black. The thing about this show is that at first the psychological side of people, the why and the how, was very interesting and it was kind of new on tv to explore the dark side of the human mind. But what got my eye were the struggles that Frank had. How he was devoted to his family and how he tried to separate the 2 worlds apart: one full of hate and darkness and the other a loving fragile home. Still today, the Black family feels the more believable family that I´ve ever seen on tv. And as time went by, the show got better and better with all the story of the MG, Peter Watts, etc...And the whole idea of control is always interest because it will always be there. Maybe that is one of the reasons that this show is still making us think. And also, why we want it back almost 20 years after. By the way the guys from Back to Frank Black are gathering people these days on twitter to ask Netflix to put the show online to make another grain of sand to make the show go back.
  19. Hi everybody. Maybe the idea of Frank killing that psycho was to make him more human and not the classic "Ned Flanders" hero that forgives everything. If he decided just to arrest him, it would turn the whole story (from the beginning of the polaroids to its end) into just another case. It would have lost the effect. I seem to remember that Mr. Carter was annoyed because of that episode because he couldn't use anymore the polaroid fx for the beginning of the episodes (or something like that). Anyway, I think that episode was so well done. And Catherine´s reaction was right. Come on, after that you can´t just say "well Frank...let´s go home and eat the chicken". That situation with the photo stalker had been stuck with them for years so it had to have a big impact to their relationship. It was the core of Frank´s decistion to come back and join the MG. Plus, it was a breakpoint in every way for Frank. Great episode. "FRANK: I was on a serial case in Minnesota. The killer’s name was Ed Cuffle. He would choose a neighborhood and he would go up to a door. If he found it unlocked he considered that an invitation to go in and kill anybody home. He would take Polaroids of his victims which he’d send to the police. Took us months, but we caught him. He’s serving triple life sentences. BLETCHER: And that was it. FRANK: A year later, I reach into my mailbox and I take out the mail and there’s a letter addressed to me - no return. Inside are Polaroids of Catherine at the supermarket, Catherine at the school. Suddenly the psychic novocaine wore off. The numbness became paralyzing fear. BLETCHER: You ever find who sent them? FRANK: No. But I couldn’t leave the house. Why should I go to work when I can’t even protect my own family? My little girl was a miracle. We weren’t supposed to be able to conceive. I couldn’t let her out of my sight. BLETCHER: But you beat it. How? FRANK: I was approached by a group of men who helped me understand the nature of my facility, my gift.
  20. her wife...haven't thought of her...good thinking seethru! Watts was such a great character so let´s hope that he is still alive. And the relationship with Frank was always interesting to watch. I really hope some day we have the chance to watch them again and see where the story goes.
  21. thanks everybody again for such a warm welcome. You are all too kind :) I agree with Libby about that german detective...I remember thinking "what is wrong with this guy?". I enjoyed "the hand of st Sebastian" because I like when a show decides to push things a little and take risks like finding a piece of wood that was a part of Jesus cross or in this case, the hand of a saint. Not a religious guy but I always enjoyed the amount of historical information (true or not) that the show gave. The level of investigation to write such complex lines must have been real hard. Anyway, I understand U (when it gets too religiosity) because in some episodes when the spiritual part got to close to the camera, like Lara and the other girl watching angels or a virgin, for me was kind of annoying. Of course, this is an opinion but when you materialized those things, you left the audience imagination out and that is kind of a mistake. But like I said before, I respect and admire the risk to push things. In art, sometimes works, sometimes it doesn't. "Loin" was more of a typical Millennium episode. I agree with you Seesthru, it wasn't a good one. I liked “In Arcadia Ego”. And also, I can imagine that in those days write a whole episode about a female couple who was in love with each other and then, get it actually on air must have been difficult. Though the end was sad, the episode showed a couple who was totally committed to each other till the end. And the baby ended up in a loving family. And remember Libby that they left a mystical door open about the baby: the guard did abuse her but the dna did´t match. That was the strange dark/light tone that Millennium had that was so special for me. The whole "hero" concept (Frank): a man who loves his family but end it up losing them in order to protect them from the evil that surround us. That is such a bittersweet thought. I still don´t know how Mr. Carter convinced Fox to make this show...maybe we have to thank the X-files success.
