To my TIWWA Community,
I just want everyone to know that I'm in the midst of writing a book on Season One of Millennium. It's largely a book of praise focused on the light and dark of the show. I'm also trying not to include many spoilers as I want the show to both appeal to old fans and newcomers who haven't yet watched the series. I'm relying on a lot of the great material on this site, so thanks to Libby and everyone involved in writing/editing the transcripts, as well as the synopsis and character profile pages. I'm reading reviews of episodes to gather additional insights, and of course, watching the episodes again. So far, I dig into favorite scenes and highlight historical context where possible (e.g. the amount of children in foster care in the 90s as it relates to "Blood Relatives" or America's prison population as it relates to "The Judge").
I'm about 15,000 words into what I plan to be a 40,000-words manuscript. I'm still in the drafting stage, and after that, revision time, which will likely occur in the next week or so (I'm working on another book as well, so that gives me some time away from the book with fresh eyes and perspective).
I'm definitely going to be shouting out/recommending our community in the book as it's a fantastic place to engage with fans and an exceptional resource. I've got an exceptional artist working on the cover and drawings of villains like the Judge and Lucy Butler, and also some of my favorite recurring characters.
The book will be self-published, but as I plan to turn it into a series that examines all 3 seasons (over the next few years), who knows where it might lead and what publisher may be interested/which publisher I may reach out to after the first book. My author/blog website is https://www.rightguywrongtown.com if anyone is interested (I write a lot about politics, education & music and am beginning to delve into film). This is who we are!
I saw it twice- once on HBO Max and once in theaters. Waiting to buy the 4K UHD blu-ray. I liked the new version. great casting, production design, great cast. The only downside of the movie is that I wish the IMAX scenes would be included on the 4K and blu-ray releases, and scenes cut from the movie would have made it better (and those cut scenes are mostly character and plot development scenes in the book). I hope there is an extended cut, but the director unfortunately hates including deleted scenes or doing extended cuts
I bought the blu-ray back in December. It is finally available in the USA at this time. Great documentary. Too bad they didn't and/or couldn't have gotten interviews with Terry O'Quinn, Morgan, and Wong. This is a great documentary to include as an extra if Millennium is ever released on blu-ray
