just watched this episode and was stunned to see Jeffrey Donovan in it. he plays Bobby "the wild one." i love his series Touching Evil. has anyone else seen it? anyway, it was interesting to see him in this role, almost a comletely opposite character than what i know him for in his series.

just another example of how the Millennium casting crew really had a keen eye for great talent.

i particularly didn't like this episode quite frankly, i mean it just didn't seem like Millennium at all, it seemed trite, annoying, dull, and unfocused. as much as I think both the guest stars are terrific actors, their characters were completely unsympathetic, you really didn't care about them at all, except perhaps for the girl, but all she did was cry throughout the entire episode. also, it just seemed like a Lifetime Channel movie of the week. the only bright spot was the scene with Frank and his family, with Jordan asking her parents if they plan on having another baby. Other than that, the episode was just stupid. i don't think i'll be watching that episode again any time soon.

This was a memorable episode but the girl was just not convincing when she cried. I really liked her performance otherwise it's just, she would watch her boyfriend load his gun, twir the barrel thingy around and stomp into a house and when gunshots followed for the up'teenth time she would start to cry in horror as if she had no anticipation of what was comming.

The ending was a little far fetched, that Frank was oh soo looking forward to bringing his daughter to meet this woman who was an inmate? I just dont think he liked her that much and it is a little against Frank's ideology to mix family and his work if not absolutely nessesary.

I really liked the narrative the girl would give of the letters she wrote to angel (a very mysterious name) and the accounts she tells to frank (as we find out in the end). They were captivating and touching, especially the part about "making peace".

Good episode.

I also think, as reply eluded to, that all episodes are linked to the millennium even in episodes where the antagonist is not explicitly motivated by prophecies or millennial events. It's kind of like the feeling many felt a few years back when all those random acts of violence were televised (the work shootings/columbine). It was the sense that we were headed twords something bad in society, that something was triggering it all.

:)

must go watch the rest of season 1 dvds now :smokin:

It's one of the low point of season 1 for me also, but I don't hate it anyway.

The episodes are about to get a little more diverse, can't wait to hear your opinion some of my favorites.

This wasn't quite a brilliant episode, but i liked it though. In my opinion, this one contains the most beautiful soundtrack of all episodes: that slide guitar's sound is absolutely enthralling.

As a mother, I can say that this episode is very profound. It displayed the opposing depths of a selfish, greedy, and heartless man who sold his daughter's child, his grandchild, at one end of the spectrum, and a mother's incredible love and willingness to make any sacrifice for her child's welfare at the other end of the spectrum. And she does make the sacrifice believing "Angel" would be in better hands with the couple, resulting in future happiness for her child. Two extreme, and very intense, opposites. Forget the boyfriend, he's just a nut case with tunnel vision. Awesome episode, and definitely one of my favorites.

Its funny how this episode tends to be a love/hate thing with its viewers and fans of the show. I have always liked it, I love the characters, Maddie's voice overs, the settings and the music in particular. I always have a sympathy with Maddie, a dislike and at times a hatred for Bobbie. So I guess the episode worked for me. You either love or hate this type of story and its characters, and I love road movies anyway.
