I recently bought Haunted on Blu-ray as part of Kino Lorber's going out of print sale for $8.99 along with The First Power (a Milleniumistic horror movie starring Lou Diamond Phillips). Haunted lasted for 11 episodes and only the first six aired on UPN. It follows Frank (Matthew Fox)- an ex-cop turned private detective- who has a near death experience after getting stabbed by the guy (Simon) he believes responsible for the disappearance of his son two years ago. After his near death experience, the door to the other side isn't closed and he is haunted by ghosts including the ghost of Simon. The TV show has the same color palette of Millennium and a score by Mark Snow. I wish Haunted lasted longer, but Matthew Fox went on to do Lost
By The Old Man
"You know that for almost the entire history of Western civilization, this month has been a holy time? The Druids, winter solstice, Hanukkah; the Romans converted Saturnalia into Christmas. Imagine that: Christ wasn't even born on this day, maybe not even 1,997 years ago. So no one knows for sure when the Millennium really begins and ends. Or how much time is left. It's the Midnight of the Century." - Peter Watts, Millennium
Don't forget to watch the following episode at Midnight!
[Frank leaves the building. Across the street on a grassy area stands Peter Watts. Frank sees him and hesitates, as if to walk on, then goes over to Watts.]
FRANK: She's your daughter, Peter. You know, they don't even have a name for what you're doing.
WATTS: I'm doing everything I can to get her back. Do you think we're not trying? The Group took a big hit when you left.
FRANK: Don't flatter me.
WATTS: That's the truth.
FRANK: You don't even know the truth anymore. What do they want? How many times have you talked to them?
WATTS: It's immaterial. Their demands are never going to be met.
FRANK: Never be met by you? Her father?
WATTS: Not by me, by the Group.
FRANK: Desert Storm. Is that what this is about?
[Watts doesn't answer.]
FRANK: What's the Group's involvement?
WATTS: Group intelligence helped the US keep casualties down to a hundred and forty–seven.
FRANK: Another lie.
WATTS: Then stop asking me questions you know I can't answer! You know I can't.
[Watts now is almost crying.]
WATTS: Will you help me find her?
"Good bye to all that"
WATTS: You've always seen the Group through clouded eyes.
FRANK: No, I saw clearly.
WATTS: Our faults, yes, but never what we were attempting to do. Man has made a mess of Eden. Our greed is only eclipsed by our tribal stupidity and our brutality.
[Frank looks at him as Watts spouts the party line. Watts's mood seems lighter, as though he wanting to believe this.]
WATTS: We are rushing toward an apocalypse of our own creation.
FRANK: This is cult propaganda.
WATTS: No, fact, Frank. Maybe not the end of the physical world, but the end of a world that is worthy of human life. And that's not that something that the Group invented, that's what the Group is trying to prevent.
FRANK: You mean control.
WATTS: No, no. I mean, attempting to preserve human values that are worth preserving. We're shepherds, Frank, all of us.
FRANK: What did you say?
WATTS: Choosing the future. It's already happened, Frank.
I saw "The curse of Frank black today" and I notice in the begining Frank Black is holding human flesh with a knife in the other hand, then he lights the Pumpikin. I wonder if the big secret of Millenium is that Frank Black is a repented demon tryng to live a human life. In the end, he saw in the windows the reflection of the devil while he is cleaning the window. and may times in diferent episodes, Frank see the face of evil directly, like a kind of reflection of himself.
In the episode "Time is now" when Sara means is sedated, Frank Black says something like "Heaven is a place where you can find peace, but I rather be dead than return"
My theory is that Frank Black is a demon (capable of killing people), but the universe gave him a second chance in earth.
