The groundbreaking show Millennium was about to take a new, visionary direction in its second season. Millennium could have continued its successful formula of introducing new, apocalyptic "Se7en-esque" serial killers for Frank Black (Lance Henriksen) to hunt down. But as any viewer can attest, it was the exploration of the mysterious "Millennium Group" and Frank Black's role that held the key to the show's potential longevity. And who better to build a mythos for the Millennium than the minds behind The X-Files: producer/writer team Glenn Morgan and James Wong. Stepping in when Chris Carter stepped aside, Morgan and Wong immediately began to focus season 2 not on the killers and their impact on Armageddon, but on Frank Black and his struggle for his personal stability and sanity. The Millennium Group, whose identify and function was never really explored in season 1, now becomes a central entity in season 2 complete with its own Masonic-like mythology.

Picking up where season 1 ends, Frank Black's stalker, the "Polaroid man," has kidnapped his wife, Catherine (Megan Gallagher). While searching for his wife, Frank begins to learn that the group has not exactly been open with him and their secrets run a lot deeper than he ever imagined. Building on this tragedy, season 2 follows Frank's downward spiral: his strained relationship with his wife, the loss of his sanctuary "the yellow house," his disenchantment and eventual confrontation with the Millennium Group, and his struggle to maintain a normal relationship with his daughter, Jordan (Brittany Tiplady), in the face of Armageddon. Season 1 was definitely dark and fantastic, but somehow maintained a strong sense of realism. With Morgan and Wong at the helm, season 2 further explores the dark and fantastical, but becomes a lot more surreal, but no less fascinating. So whether you are drawn to stories about dark serial killers ("The Mikado"), the ongoing tales of conspiracies ("The Hand of St. Sebastian," "Owls," and "Roosters"), familiar comedies ("José Chung's Doomsday Defense"), or the bizarre ("Somehow, Satan Got Behind Me"), season 2 has something for you. Tragically, there would only be one more season before one of the best shows of the '90s would be cancelled. --Rob Bracco

When writers Glen Morgan and James Wong jointly took over the executive producer role for Millennium's second season, quite a few changes were planned and subsequently enforced. Morgan and Wong quickly made efforts to deviate from stories considering serial killers, they complicated the yet unexplored history of the mysterious Millennium Group, they introduced a sense of humor to the series, and they brought mythology and spirituality more prominently into the scripts.

Millennium was a series that was continually reinventing itself. It's one of the keys to the strength of the show's drama and to the power of its continuing relevance. Glen Morgan and James Wong held nothing back as their scripts delved unabashedly into a world dominated by demons, angels, dreams, visions, mythology, science, and the triumphant if sometimes troubling human spirit. It is in the episodes of Millennium's second season that the series reached its peak and these discs contain some of Frank Black's most thrilling and unforgettable adventures.

Even in the twenty-first century this is as good as it gets and there's nothing else like it in the annals of television history.

(Season III: Sept. 6, 2005!!)

I must say this series really hit its stride with Season II. Season One had its moments but the characters never seemed more than cardboard cut outs (with a few exceptions), here the characters become "people" and that is the defining moment for any series, providing they are lucky enough to get this far.

The Beginning of the End *** - Good episode but doesn't quite match the anticipation set up by the closing of Season One.

Beware of Dog * - One of my least fave episodes. Just improbable and a real mess. The Carpenters intro was interesting though. The people live there with those dogs? Silly. Not so much Sci-fi more like Low-fi.

Sense and Antisense *** - A good episode, not much else to say. A bit over the top.

Monster **** - A real great episode featuring Franks new "partner". She's great, plus the little kid is... a Monster (not to mention a great little actress).

Single Blade of Grass *** - Amy Steel is great, the Indians are overwrought.

The Curse of Frank Black ****.5 - The first ep that really defies the series. Unusual but a must see. Ahh, Jordan dressed as Marge is so cute.

19:19 **.5 - Kind of by the numbers, much like Sense and Antisense.

The Hand of Saint Sebastian ***** - The first fiver of Season Two. GREAT episode that reveals a lot of "the group." A MUST!!

Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense ***** - This may be a love or hate episode because it often borders on humor (and brilliance). This reminds me of Wes Andersons works, like the Life Aquatic, totally surreal, and totally NOT for the masses.

Midnight of the Century ***** - three fivers in a row!!? This is my fave, it is Christmas time and fuses so many different aspects of the show...

...and Season Two of Millennium is, for me, what the series was all about. While Season One blew us away with intense CSI-like drama and plot lines, Season Two gave us more of the behind the scenes mythology that we knew was there is Season One, but never saw.

The relationship between Frank Black and Peter Watts (BTW: Terry O'Quinn deserves tons of credit for playing this role the way he did!) becomes very important to the plot, combine that with the addition of Kristen Kloke (playing Laura) and the revelations about the Millennium Group and this season, in my opinion, becomes one of the best seasons for a television series ever.

Episodes like "Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense" and "Somehow Satan Got Behind Me" bring a bit of "tragic comedy" into play. The episode, "Mikado" shows us how truly awesome Frank's profiler abilities are, and eispdoes like, "Owls," "Roosters," "The Hand of Saint Sebastian," "The Fourth Horseman" and "The Time is Now" explore the Millennium Groups darker side, as well as send chills up the spine of viewers with intense visuals and storylines--some like "The Time is Now" haunt me to this day! The best thing is that all of these episdoes, different as they may be, contribute to the show, they allow it to grow and become something that will entertain us far into the future.

I truly believe this show was way ahead of it's time, and if it were just coming out now, and even though it was different in it's approach to crime-drama, it would rival CSI and all of the other top-rated crime-drama shows each network is developing today.

I've already written a rave review of season one, so now I'll add a few notes on season two. Season one of this show is a crime drama with a hint of conspiracy and spiritual darkness. Season, two, however, pulls back the covers and lets you begin to see the real world of Frank Black. Rumors abound that due to sagging ratings, Carter tried some new tricks to pull ratings to the show (a common and necessary evil of Hollywood mainstream television); this may be true, but either way, the changes in season two are wonderful.

In seasons two, Frank's visions begin to make more sense to an audience, and the supernatural plays a much larger part in the story lines. It's less about a retired profiler and more about stemming off the end of the world. We begin to see our first demons and our first hints at the sinister machinations of "The Group."

One Amazon review says that season two panders and plays to comedy. I'm not sure what show this reviewer was watching. I found season two to be at times so brutal it was difficult to watch (in a good way!). As for an occasional comic foray in the series, I think that's called variety, and it is needed in any show. The same feel and the same story arcs week after week are series suicide. By showing a funny glimpse of the Millennial world every now and then, and by making Frank more human, the show gains a broader appeal. It's not grim faced, tight lipped Frank Black the sketch from season one; it's Frank Black the person, now.

Any review that looks at the world of Millennium and X-Files, a world of alien abductions, face-less alien rebels, and demons walking among us to secure the end times and says that the world has become "increasingly fantastic and unbelievable" obviously missed the point of the entire genre.
