My Introduction

Good day,

I have visited this site a few times over the past 1.5 years now. I decided not to join because I would get all excited about the show but I couldn't watch it (lost all of my video tapes) that is until last year when I bought Season One on DVD. Laziness prevented me from joining up until now.

I live in Orlando, Florida - by way of Michigan, Colorado and Louisiana. Millenium is by far my favorite show ever. I began by watching season 1, episode 2 and never looked back. I cannot wait to join in the discussions and then checking out the Millenium Apocalypse.

I was so nervous when I signed up I couldn't think of my 5 fav episodes. After thinking about it more deeply, I can't single out 5 - so I am going to have to delete the ones I have listed.

Just bought Season 2 yesterday and can't wait to get Season 3, next week probably.

Thanks for having this site, I was so thrilled when I saw it the first time.

Cheers dudes, and ladies too!

Welcome, chagrin! Glad you decided to jump in and join us at last. I guess you must have watched the show when it first aired - it'll be interesting to know how you like the show now you've got the luxury of the DVDs.

Don't worry about choosing your top 5 episodes - in fact, I cheated and didn't put anything in that box - and in any case, if I did put my top 5 episodes, I'd be changing my mind about those every few weeks. :rofl:

Good to have you aboard.

Thanks, yes, I should have clarified that. I began watching when it first aired on FOX, I thought to myself "this is going to be huge!"

Maybe it wasn't, "technically" TV friendly, but it made such an impression on me. Now I am introducing it to my new friends here in Florida.

My daughter actually advised me not to watch it as she thought it would be too upsetting for her poor old Mother! :rofl: So I didn't get to see the show until quite some time after it initially aired in the States.

Hope your new friends enjoy the show as well.

A thought expressed by William James in 1902 and quoted by Wells deserves renewed attention: [Cleckley, 1988 5th edition]

Yonder puny fellow however, whom everyone can beat suffers no chagrin about it, for he has long ago abandoned the attempt to “carry that line,” as the merchants say, of Self at all. With no attempt there can be no failure; with no failure, no humiliation. So our self-feeling in this world depends entirely on what we back ourselves to be and do. It is determined by the ratio of our actualities to our supposed potentialities; a fraction of which our pretensions are the denominator and the numerator our success: thus, self-esteem = Success/Pretensions. Such a fraction may be increased as well by diminishing the denominator as by increasing the numerator. To give up pretensions is as blessed a relief as to get them gratified; and where disappointment is incessant and the struggle unending, this is what men will always do. The history of evangelical theology, with its conviction of sin, its self-despair, and its abandonment of salvation by works, is the deepest of all possible examples, but we meet others in every walk of life….How pleasant is the day when we give up striving to be young—or slender! Thank God! We say, those illusions are gone. Everything added to the self is a burden as well as a pride.

Thanks dude, and everyone for the kind words. I have to admit, this is one busy site. As I read on in some of the topics I notice alot of what the show did for me. It seems to have been placed on TV at the "perfect" time in my life as well. I am going to enjoy this, and I feel like you are, for the most part, very very knowledgable people and not afraid to show your emotions, even ones that may "show weakness" no offense intendedn, I hope that cmae out the right way. Sharing, dreams and inner thoughts is very healthy.
