Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Millennium marked the second major television series created by Chris Carter, who'd already made his name as the brains behind The X-Files. And, like its predecessor, it shares a lot of the same themes--it's a crime thriller that gradually unfolds into a grand conspiracy involving the government and the fate of the entire world.

Agent Frank Black (Lance Henriksen) is a former FBI agent who has transplanted his family from Washington, D.C. to Seattle, after suffering something of a breakdown. He's an expert criminal profiler--arguably the best, thanks to his ability to "see" into the minds of killers--and he fears for the safety of his wife and young daughter. In Seattle, he joins the mysterious Millennium Group, an agency of freelance crime-busters who investigate particularly brutal crimes. As a result, Millennium is downright bleak viewing, as Black jumps from horrific slaying to horrific slaying. Moreover, there's a growing sense of unease about the workings of the Millennium Group, so that in typical Chris Carter fashion, you don't know who to trust. With its pre-Y2K angst and overwhelming darkness, as well as its general humorlessness, Millennium hasn't dated as well as The X-Files. Still, thanks to Carter's vision and Henriksen's compelling take on the tortured Black, it's difficult not to get hooked. --Ted Kord

Product Description

Retired serial-profiler Frank Black has moved his family to Seattle to escape the violence and horror he dealt with while working for the FBI in Washington, D.C. Although his uncanny and often unsettling ability to see into the twisted minds of serial killers has caused him much inner torment, Black knows his "gift" can still be used to help protect and save others. For that reason he has joined the mysterious Millennium Group, a team of underground ex-law enforcement experts dedicated to fighting against the ever-growing forces of evil and darkness in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why TV was invented. July 28, 2004
Format:DVD
I'm a professor of English, focusing on mass media and popular culture, so I watch a lot of TV. Having said that, this is the best show I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. The directing, acting, music, tone, writing, and quality of the show is astounding.

I used to watch the show religiously when it was on, and I'd slowly watch my friends and family get turned off by it. The first season was too slow for some, the second too gory, the third, well, you'll have to wait and see. But people couldn't keep up with the harsh reality of Chris Carter's world. They all regret abandoning the show now that it's on DVD, and they've begun watching it again.

Yes, they quit watching because the show was hard. And yes, the show is hard. It makes you think. It makes you feel. It sets up characters, often to kill them off, and make you miss them. Why watch, then, you may ask? Well, when's the last time a show made you feel? Made you sad or angry or worried or made you simply get up and lock your door?

If you want more sappy crappy TV to slide down your throat like everything else in our fast food world, walk away and hit some sitcoms on the big three networks. If you can take a rather hardcore look at crime, demonogoly, and the end of the world, and if you can take actually feeling--emoting in our flood of apathetic televised garbage--then buy this DVD set right away.

5.0 out of 5 stars I waited a Millennium for this! August 1, 2004
Format:DVD
Highs:

It's about as cryptic as I remember from my `96 encounter with it and it still has a lot going for it in terms of being something cutting edge for television. Some of the content is difficult to stomach let alone realize it was on TV*. (*See the Pilot)

Lance Hendrickson has that `instant credibility' that is missing from exactly 99.99% of current television. He is a great lead and simply has the exact chemistry the show demands.

The imagery of the show is so unique it is in and of itself a work of art. How many shows could you turn the sound down on and simply `experience`?? Few. Current shows? None.

Megan Gallagher is also a plus, she is beautiful and simply seems at home in the confines of the set. `Jordan`, the daughter is also pretty good at times, but seems to be a bit young for the show. Terry O' Quinn, ahh, the Stepfather return-eth! Great. I love this guy a lot too. The villains are also almost always up to par, which is crucial to a show of this nature. Love the Judge!

Fair extra's, wonderful packaging (much better than the awkward-flimsy-cardboard X-files-junk), the price is spot on, and it has great picture and sound. Wow, I still can't believe I own this!

That there weren't 15 or 20 seasons of the X-files to be made for DVD or this may never have come out... (did all 9 seasons @ $1?0 a pop, really need to come out before this superior show...?)

Special kudos to the young actress who played the young mother in the episode which should have been titled simply... `Angel.' I didn't take the time to find the name in the credits but she really is gifted.

I OWN SEASON ONE OF MILLENNIUM!

Lows:

Few. But here goes...

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally August 1, 2004
Format:DVD
I can honestly say that I have waited a long time for Fox to finally have the good sense to bring the cult hit show Millennium to DVD, and now finally it's here. Created by X-Files creator Chris Carter, Millennium stars Lance Henriksen (you've seen him before in Pumpkinhead, Aliens, Terminator, Near Dark, and he's in the upcoming Alien VS Predator) as former FBI profiler Frank Black who has since moved his family to Seatle. There, he joins the mysterious Millennium group: a seemingly group of crime busters who investigate some mysterious and brutal crimes. However, just like on Carter's X-Files, nothing is as it seems, and Carter weaves a web of conspiracy that it soon becomes clear that Frank doesn't know who he can trust. Henriksen is perfect in his Emmy nominated role, giving what very well could be his best performance ever, and he managed to keep doing it every week until the series' end. At the time the show premiered, Fox was turning out new shows every season to be a double header with the X-Files (remember Space: Above and Beyond? or Strange Luck?), most of which lasted shortly, but Millennium lasted for a good few seasons until it's ultimate end. All in all, die hard fans of the show can now rejoice that Millennium is finally on DVD.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Noah was an insane man, until the rains came, and that day the flood began. All the people who had jeered showed up. Imagine that scene--the chaos, the violence. People who had taunted Noah just hours before, now willing to commit any vile act... to secure a seat on his boat." -- Iron Lung Man, ep. 13 FORCE MAJEURE

Very few people understood what Millennium was about, but for its fans, it remains a very stirring drama. A lot of critics misrepresent Millennium as some kind of gloomy police drama, when the cases that Frank Black investigated during the course of season one were merely vehicles in which to explore the grayer shades of humanity.

Only about half of the twenty-two episodes during the first season were concerned with just serial killers--far less than critics like to think. Look closer and you'll see that episodes like the pilot, "Gehenna," "The Judge" and "Sacrament" had supernatural/apocalyptic elements to them, which make them far less mundane than some might initially think. ("Gehenna" even had visuals of a winged beast, or Legion as the fans dubbed him, descending from the sky.)

Regarding those other, say, eight or ten serial killer episodes, Millennium addressed the big questions: What made these men? What can society do to stop them? You won't hear the investigators on CSI or Law & Order ask these questions, unless in a glib, sarcastic way. Those programs are all about police procedure. To me, *that's* depressing. When Frank looked 'into the minds of killers,' he was trying to understand them, sometimes even sympathize with them. These killers weren't evil people. They were tragic people that did evil things--most were victims themselves. Millennium gave human faces to ghastly perpetrators.
