I voted for the killers/profiling/criminology aspect of the show because it's "stuck' to me, also to science/investigation and exploration of evil. It's a bit in the middle, like a mediation in between the two worlds, to the core.

I am shocked that I missed this poll after so long of being here. Thank you Sophie for bringing it back to the forefront.

I agree with you, killers/profiling/criminology is the most fasinating to me too, and could have said "ditto" to everything you said.

Well now you've done it Earthnut. I've been sitting here for 20 min. trying to decide. I'm going with the Legion aspect though,The Judge is one of my favorite episodes and well then there is Lucy :devil:. The apocalyptic theme is a close second.

While I am big on science (note my name). The conspiratorial aspects and supernatural topics interest me as things not fully explained yet! Before you can explain and quantify them, you need to take that leap of faith that they exist. I do believe that human nature is basically good. There may be no shortage of evil ideas, but there is definitely a lack of will to carry them out.

Your post is so good that I had to quote it. I totally agree, there is no shortage of evil ideas, and a person's free choice is the key, the will, and thank God we don't have more evil present then we do. Basically, mankind is good when push comes to shove. It's always the few bad apples that ruin it for the rest of us.

BTW, pardon my ignorance, but what does "Asperger" mean?

Answered my own question, finally looked up the word "Asperger."

Asperger's syndrome is a developmental disorder that affects a person's ability to socialize and communicate effectively with others. Children with Asperger's syndrome typically exhibit social awkwardness and an all-absorbing interest in specific topics.

I started to watch the show mostly ´cause of the X-files. The funny thing is that later I lost total interest in the X-files but I was captured by Millennium. The music intro, the mood of the show, the scripts, and of course, Lance Henriksen as Frank Black. The thing about this show is that at first the psychological side of people, the why and the how, was very interesting and it was kind of new on tv to explore the dark side of the human mind. But what got my eye were the struggles that Frank had. How he was devoted to his family and how he tried to separate the 2 worlds apart: one full of hate and darkness and the other a loving fragile home. Still today, the Black family feels the more believable family that I´ve ever seen on tv. And as time went by, the show got better and better with all the story of the MG, Peter Watts, etc...And the whole idea of control is always interest because it will always be there. Maybe that is one of the reasons that this show is still making us think. And also, why we want it back almost 20 years after. By the way the guys from Back to Frank Black are gathering people these days on twitter to ask Netflix to put the show online to make another grain of sand to make the show go back.

I voted for the apocalyptic aspect. When the show aired, we were facing the new millennium upcoming, worried about the Y2K computer thing, and the world was getting darker. Since then we have faced some horrible things, Wars, /11 boston bombings, school massacres, church burnings, plagues, climate change, and every day someone is saying the apocalypse has begun MIllennium is as relevant now as the day the pilot aired, specifically because of this. It took on this aspect, when other shows didn't dare. It was and still is ahead of it's time.

Only just saw this now. This was tougher than I would've thought. I ended up going with Frank Black. Lance/Frank is a huge part of what makes Millennium wonderful and special.

Seven and One [3.19]

:"Frank Black" (voiceover): I've been given the gift of insight, of seeing in the dark and seeing into the darkness of men's hearts and minds. I know what evil is. I've seen it, felt it, tasted it, inhaled the demon breath of its ancient powers. The same powers that have been prophesied through history and which are now marshalling. Who is witness to this? Have we stopped listening to the prophets, the seers and the sayers? I have misjudged my gift. If I see in the darkness it's because there is light. And it is the light which guides me now. The light that will not go out, that will lead us out of the dark night, if we let ourselves feel this, too. It will protect me, as it protects those around me. Even as the ancient forces try to steal our breaths. Seven years of trials and tribulations. Seven plus one, the prophets tell us. Is this the end? The last year of this peace? Or the beginning?
