Hi there!

My name's Mike and I'm a 27 year old Millennium fan and father from Leicestershire, UK.

I first became a fan of the show back in 2001 when I got the X-Files "Millennium" episode on VHS for Christmas. I watched that episode, then the two bonus episodes and was hooked!!! I collected a few more tapes but didn't manage to get the DVDs until my early 20s. The reason for my being late getting into the show was I was more sports orientated, mainly football/soccer, back then.

I'm a creative guy who likes to write. I will not, however, be attempting to contribute to the Virtual Seasons as my main creative strength is in parody-and yes I have parodied Millennium, though not on a public forum. Please don't misunderstand me, I love the show-it's one of my all time favourites-but I have a...erm...gift(?)...curse(?) of finding parody in just about anything, though that doesn't mean I will find (or even try to find) parody in everything.

My first Millennium parody was back in college, year 2001. It was a short story series that I'd email to my college friends and, surprisingly, they liked it.

This was called Frank Black Versus Babar (yes the elephant)

It followed the events of Season 3 and reunited Frank and Jordan with Peter Watts, Mulder and Scully and even Catherine!!! They formed their own Millennium Group to take on the forces of the evil tyrant, Babar!!! Fank even crossed over into my other parody series-Pastilles Of Fruit Man!!! I wrote two twenty five "episode" seasons and had a third planned before I left college, through neccessity (not choice).

After college I dropped my projects. In 2006 I became a fan of Family Guy and, at this point, owned the Millennium box sets. An idea formed in my mind to take Millennium and place it in a Family Guy situation, complete with cutaways (Watts auditioning as Kane's stunt double for See No Evil and Watts replacing the lead singer of Korn were my favourites). I only got as far as concept art and page one of the comic. Maybe I'll have another go at it, maybe not...

My recent parody work can be seen on Youtube-Transformers: The Soap. This is done with toys and I voice 99% of the characters. I'm in the prep stage of Season 3 and have just acquired the Lockdown figure (voiced by Lance Henriksen in Transformers: Animated) so maybe Millennium will find its way into my latest project...

Anyways I've said enough for now. If you disagree with my parodies then I won't mention them here. But it doesn't mean I won't do them...

Any questions feel free to email me or leave a comment, I shall respond. And if you don't think I will...

I want you to make believe...that I can!!!

Oh no, not another Brit. LOL

Sincerely, it's great having you here and hope we see you often.

I so want to read your parodies, please, please, please, post them.

I remember Babar well and dating myself by saying so too. Oh well. :confused:

Love your Frank Black quoting at the end of your post. :clapping:

Here's the YouTube video of The Transformers: The Soap, Episode 1. Wow, it looks like there's at least 16 parts but not sure how many episodes.

Haha thanks for the plug :D

There are 18 episodes on Youtube. Some are split for time (when uploads could only be 10 minutes). There is also a Christmas special (again, split for time...but it is over half hour long :S), the Prologue and an extra All That Jazz episode.

Season 3 had been delayed for two reasons-first: my laptop died and I lost about 60% of my scripts. second: the Season 3 opener has a tornado attacking Cybertron and, with the recent events in Japan, I didn't think the time was right to begin working on it.

I have another Christmas special planned. I'd actually wrote about 18 minutes before my laptop broke ):-( Now i have to start the whole thing again...

That's all I'm gonna say about that as I'm not here for TFTS but I appreciate you posting my video :D

Maybe I'll try and go back ten years into my memory and try to remember Frank Black vs. Babar or maybe I'll wait 'til 2014 (...thirteen years later ;D)

Maybe I'll do MillenniuM Guy...who knows? We'll see how things go...
