The X-Files episode "Millennium" was called "Millennium" in German as well. How could they have named it some other way?

The German titles seem to have a lot of numbers in it, don't they? :rofl:

By the way, the tag lines of the original credit sequence ("Wait ... worry" etc.) were omitted in the German version. In all three seasons the following line was included:

"Fürchte deinen Nächsten wie dich selbst", translated "Fear your neighbour like yourself".

Thanks for this, I was hoping to ask our German and French Elders if they could provide such a list for the episode guide that we are currently making. Now I just need to track down the French version posted in the Archives!

*hehe* The German titles aren't as bad as possible... But they're absolutely addicted on numbers. :fool:

The German line "Fürchte deinen Nächsten wie dich selbst" is very typical. Like on "The X-Files": "Die unheimlichen Fälle des FBI". Translated: "The eery cases of the FBI". :jumping:
