Great news, Season 2 of Der Pass appeared this week!
All episodes downloadable on Sky On Demand/Now TV if you have access to it.
Can't wait to see if it's as good as the first season! Apparently it takes place a year after S1, so I'm hoping there's more breathtaking visuals of those snowy Scandinavian forests and mountains (and creepy ass antler wearing weirdos aplenty).
The trailer is below, in Deutsch of course...
@hobbeschild I'm sorry you didn't get a reply to your post, I completely missed it. I'd have to rewatch S1 to remind myself and be sure but I think you're correct. Hope you get to see S2, this and Absentia are unmissable.
@Gotham Gal I think you're probably right, though a 15-minute conversation wouldn't hurt, but let's let the past remain where it should. Ted Mann said in the Millennium After the Millennium documentary that everything was TBD and Carter never laid out a vision for the show and that it was intentional. What bothers me is that "98% less serial killers" in Season Two equaled 100% less Ted Mann. Also, no inside info, it could have been his decision, just a correlation.
@Gotham Gal I have. Bought a hard copy when it came out a decade ago. I still read it to this day. Every essay is excellent, and I've referenced it a few times and will continue to I'm sure.
My book aims to focus on the dark and light in the episodes, as well as examine the historical context related to the stories and what I see as the subtext. I'm deliberately avoiding complete synopsis-style descriptions of the episodes. In the cases where I struggle to avoid revealing significant portions of plot, I'm adding a spoiler alert, because my hope is that someone new to the show would read it, not just time-tested fans.
I feel like there's not a lot of literature about the show. Aside from Back to Frank Black, most writers I've seen usually address Millennium as extensions in books they write about the X-Files, which is understandable given the two different worlds in popularity, but that's really my goal: add to the literature.
