Who Cares?

The Time Is Now

Nipping on the heels of the success of Chris Carter's The X-Files: I Want to Believe (which I thoroughly enjoyed) there is the possibility of a Millennium motion picture somewhat dependent upon the sales of the recently released Millennium box set.

I started watching the series in 1996 with my wife, who also watched The X-Files. And while I wasn't a fan of the latter, toward the end there were some very good episodes. But was completely taken with, and quite disappointed when they canceled Millennium, citing it was confusing and "too cerebral" for audiences.

Since I've been going through the box set, I found that I missed most of Season One. During this time in my life I was traveling 2-weeks out of the month, so its been a joy to catch up, although I'm surprised at how slowly-paced it is compared to say, Supernatural or Criminal Minds. Another era I suppose, but still highly enjoyable, and Mark Snow really helps shape the series. After seeing the Season One episode "Lamentations" my only regret is that Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture blending into Mark Snow's score wasn't on the album.

It was difficult at first seeing Lance Henriksen in the role of the show's protagonist, as I was familiar with him only as Bishop from Aliens (though I did enjoy him in either Terminator or Highlander - whichever one it was where he was a cop) but seeing Aliens again after Millennium he seemed out of place as he will forever be Frank Black to me.
