O.K. We all need a good dose of Millennium.


Recommended Posts

As some of you know..... this year has been an extreamly challenging and stressful one. I keep coming back here, because this is home to me. You people are my family. And, as I have been here now for ...... (is it 8 years???? god, I feel old!!!!), I see so many new faces, and trusted friends I've known for years. I don't know about the rest of you, but as Millennium actually got me through a very difficult time in my life, I just thought it'd be nice if all of us went through the episodes from beginning to end, and shared the experience here each day. No set day or time to watch, since we all have challenging lives and schedules. But, just to try to each take out time for ourselves and start back at the beginning, and share the experience here, as if it were all new. I would really enjoy that experience, as I find great comfort in the wonderful friends I have here.

Let me know what you think!

The forums are a home away from home for me too Erin. I can't stay away and don't want to. I have become so close to some members that I consider them family.

If anyone can pull this off it's you Erin. Are we going to come back to this thread or are you starting a new thread for everyone's story? Will there be a thread for each episode?

Do you realize how far back it was for some of us? Yikes!!!

As usual I'm a little confused. :confused: But I love the idea. :clapping:

I have be on a Millennium "time out" if you will. I was watching the episodes every night on Chiller and had to stop or it would have gotten tedious and boring. Well Chiller stopped showing them also so I haven't watched an episode for six months anyway. It would be a great time to break out the DVD s and jump in again.:ouroborous:

Earthnut, I'm not sure I understand your question. Can you please re-state?

Keeping it simple, probably here in the main discussion forum....nothing to cluttery so people get lost. Maybe someone could start a thread called "Las Time, On Millennium", or "Millenniumistic experience for the week", or something silly like that. Like the coffee lounge, just somewhere to go to and, starting with the Pilot, re-watch each one, and share thoughts and feelings in that thread. I'm probably making this complicated, and I mean it to be simple. This idea is a "Back to Basics", "Comfort Food" kinda thing. It's been so long, and we've all come so far in our lives (and some of us are busy sliding downhill into a big pile of doo-doo...) that it may have lost it's luster for us. Time to revive that, I think. :pumpkin3:

I'd have to check my profile to see how long I've been a member here, but I can't now imagine my life without tiwwa. I wish I'd kept a journal through all those years because that'd help me remember the significant moments.

But I do remember, Joe, what you and your wife went through way back then, and it's extraordinary to realise that your son is now, what, 6 years old?

As for me, the last several months have at times been stressful. Some of that has involved worrying about people I care about; and some of that has been wearing my moderator's hat which hasn't been easy.

Thank you Erin for starting this topic. I think we do need to get back on track in terms of our community here.

Thanks, Libby! And, according to your info under your name, you've been here since January, 03. I have, too, though my info says March. That's because, when I 1st joined, I was NEW to the internet (and computers in general), and I was still "finding myself". I actually joined with the name "Black Wolf", but within a month, I wanted to change it to reflect my passion for Native American spirituality. It wasn't very easy to change your name here then, but, thanks to Graham (who has helped me with SO MUCH), it got changed, in March.

Yes, I've been remembering Joe and the quest he and his wife went through, to adopt that beautiful little boy. That's the luckiest little boy in the world, to have parents like those two!

As many of you know (Libby in particular), the past several months have been very unpleasant and stressful to me as well, and I am still trying to find a way to live again, and get back to the lfie I know I am meant to live.

So....... When does everyone want to start this project? And, should I start a "This week, on Millennium" thread?

What about a simple thread called, "Millennium - There and back again," "Millennium Re-visited," "Millennium - There's no place like home," or "Episode Express?"

I'll start it but I want to make sure it's named where everyone can remember it.

I think "This week on Millennium" would be a good one. Or any of the alternatives.

Anyway, I think what would be good is to have one topic that is fairly unstructured. As Erin says, no set date or time, and maybe not even in episode order. Just one topic where we can post that we've watched a particular episode and what that means to us. There are areas here for indepth discussion about a particular episode, but sometimes it's just good to watch an episode and post a comment. (And, no, I won't just be posting a comment about how Frank is hot - honestly. :makingeyes:)

We all came to Millennium in our own way, and sometimes at completely different times/years than others, so it would be good to have a general chat topic where everyone can all pile in with our comments, without feeling the need to write an essay (which I sometimes feel is almost a requirement because MM episodes usually have a lot of content).
