Millennium was a unique series, with unique characters, and this is a unique book; because this is a real book, forget about any conventional official guide or episode guide or whatever, this is not, this is 510 pages full of Millennium, interviews, chats, essays, comments and more. Despite the fact it was made by fans (putting their hearts on the project, clearly) "Back to Frank Black" is great stuff, a wery well written book, a smart book, enjoyable. It's a product very much in synchrony with the series they are talking about.
Everyone involved with the show is here, all of them, since Chris Carter and Lance Henriksen to Frank Spotnitz, Mark Snow, Glen Morgan and James Wong(really interesting interviews), Klea Scott, Kristen Cloke, Erin Maher and Kay Reindl, Sarah-Jane Redmond, Michael R. Perry, Brittany Tiplady, Thomas J. Wright, Megan Gallagher and Chip Johannessen. There's a lot to read and they had a lot to say. One thing I really like is that many comments are very honest, they share their memories 13 years later in a very truthful way, I wasn't expecting anything less, but that's pretty cool.
We are going, as readers, into all the stages of the show, since the whole serial killer thing from the first season, passing through the wonderful "98% less serial killers" vision of the second season, to the third and final season; all the changes in between are covered, all the persons involved are interviewed, and the essays explore the different situations, episodes, characters and the music. Plus, the book has a great artwork (by Matthew Ingles) and nice internal illustrations by James Mclean. As I said before, this is great stuff.
So, if you were a fan back then, or you're a fan now, and you are interesting in knowing many things and points of view about the series, since the beginnig to the end and afterwards, this is your book, buy it, it's worth it.
As a fan myself since the pilot first aired, I need a return of Frank Black, in fact I believe many people need it. Both Millennium as a series and Frank Black as a character were certainly ahead of its time back in the 90's. So now, in a different world, it's time for a comeback. Hope this book and the campaign helps, I really wish so. Time will tell, but the moment is right.
The book itself is amazing in so many ways. Unlike a traditional "companion" novel, BTFB gives a behind the scenes glance through personal accounts from both cast and crew as well as some in depth psychological breakdowns of the various season themes, characters, and series as a whole. Each chapter is a fun read and literally leaves no stone unturned. If I had one criticism, which is more of a personal one in the end, is that it would have been nice to see any behind the scenes stills/images that may or not may exist. Besides this, BTFB is well written and intriguing through and through and provides true Millennium fans with something that has been missing for so many years.
Driven towards a campaign that looks to bring back Frank Black in movie form, the book shows how much love and commitment cast and crew gave to this beloved series. Without a doubt, anyone who was/is a fan will enjoy this book and agree that the story of Frank Black needs to be brought back one last time.
"Millennium" has never received the serious attention it deserved...
until now. This is an extraordinary volume for people who care about
Popular Culture in general, and this series in particular. Besides,
thanks to those who created the book...every dollar will go to Lance
Henriksen's favorite charity, "Children of the Night." Please support
this important work.
I have been a fan of Millennium since it first premiered. I still consider it one of the finest TV shows ever created. This book is a great reference for anyone who is a fan. M.M. Alvarez
