Product Description

The complete third season of the TV series Millennium.


In the third season of Millennium, we find Frank Black (Lance Henriksen) a widower and a single father who is completely disillusioned with the Millennium group and their evil intentions. Hell-bent on revenge, Frank rejoins the FBI, gets a new partner, Special Agent Emma Hollis (Klea Scott), and launches a personal crusade to dismantle and expose the Millennium Group. Interestingly, the visionary, quirky, X-Files mythos-like direction in which the producer-writer team of Glenn Morgan and James Wong took Millennium in season 2 didn't sit well with many fans. Now that a good chunk of the Earth's population had been wiped out by the Group's killer plague, which also claimed Frank's wife Catherine (Megan Gallagher), Chris Carter decided to take the helm once again and redirect season 3 back to the dark, apocalyptic crime-fighting genre in which it was intended. The mythos element is still present, but season 3 is a definite return to the look and feel of season 1 where most of the episodes are individual dark crime stories. The scripts in season 3 are consistently sharp (especially Ken Horton's and Chip Johannessen's), and the interesting, new dynamics introduced could have easily carried the show onward for many more seasons. Sadly, it was never meant to be. Like an apocalyptic metaphor, one of the best-written, best-produced, and most-influential shows of the 1990s would be canceled at the end of season 3, less than one year before the year 2000. Fans were left to wonder about the future of Frank Black, Jordan, and the success of his personal vendetta. Fortunately, The X-Files was still going strong at the time and fans got a bit of closure with The X-Files' season 7 tie-in episode "Millennium" (included on this DVD set). --Rob Bracco

Well, it's about time that the 3rd season of this show came out! I've been waiting a long time to complete my Chris Carter collection! I'm not going to list a description of every episode, because I don't want to ruin everything for first-time viewers. ;-)

Millennium underwent some drastic changes over its 3-year run; the first season, the Millennium Group seemed to be a legitimate criminal consultant firm, with interesting abilitiesm now employing ex-FBI agent Frank Black, who wants to raise his daughter in a safer world with his wife Catherine. Season 1 also introduced one of the darkest (and most underutilized) villains in the series; Lucy Butler, who could possibly be the devil. In the second season, Frank was smack-dab in the middle of it, seperated from his family as the Group became larger, darker, and more terrifying as its true knowledge and dangerous capabilities became known, leading to a viral outbreak in Seattle, which killed 80 people, including Catherine. Frank also encountered Lucy Butler, though she evaded him once again.

In the 3rd season, Frank had left the Millennium Group and was back at the FBI, after recovering from the mental collapse he suffered from Catherine's death. He unofficially teamed up with Special Agent Emma Hollis, and they began attempting to bring Millennium to justice, which had become a distant, yet still dangerous villain. He also had one (maybe two; see Saturn Dreaming of Mercury and decide for yourself) more encounter with the evil Lucy Butler, who tried to tempt him into ruling the world with her (if that ain't the devil, what is?).

Chip Johannessen faced a difficult creative challenge when he became Millennium's Executive Producer at the start of the third season. The show's fictional world had seemingly been brought to an end at the close of the previous year. How could the creative staff continue a series in which most of the major characters and powerful plot threads had apparently been put to rest? The answer to this question, of course, was to reinvent the series once again.

The final season of Millennium began with a shaky start. Fortunately, it didn't take long for the cast and crew to meet and triumph over these challenges, and the results were commendable. Millennium's third season provided some of the show's most intelligent, bizarre, and intriguing stories. As a result, the episodes presented in this collection offer viewers a glimpse at the show's remarkable range. There are tales of police investigation, complex conspiracies, black comedy, scientific threats, and classic horror. Millennium was an artistic drama series unlike any other and it continues to stand apart in the annals of television history.

Sadly, nothing could save the series from the harsh demands of the network television industry. Just months before the dawn of the new millennium, the series was canceled and aired its final episode. Frank Black's journey had come to an end, and this DVD collection presents the thrilling conclusion to the Millennium mythology. It is not to be missed.

Chris Carter's MILLENNIUM (1996-1999) was the greatest show, certainly in the history of the FOX network, if not television itself.

Lance Henriksen played Frank Black for three years and 67 episodes in which this craggy, line-faced ex-FBI criminal profiler faced evil in all its conceivable incarnations to protect his wife and daughter Jordan from its wrath.

The final season (1998-1999) was 22 episodes of decidedly mixed results:

The show started with a two-part season premiere, beginning with "THE INNOCENTS". It was a mildly interesting story of a downed airliner and bizarre blondes, seemingly involving the Millennium Group. That continued with "EXEGESIS", in which Frank and his new FBI partner Emma Hollis tried to determine the Group's involvement. "TEOTWAWKI" (aka The End of the World as We Know It) was a story of school violence and survivalists awaiting Y2K. "CLOSURE" involved Emma's sister's death at a young age and the connection with a seemingly motiveless killer.

"...THIRTEEN YEARS LATER" was an enjoyable Halloween story that somehow mixed murders patterned on 80s and 70s horror films, a performance by the band KISS, and the black comedy that the show tried to use in the second season. "SKULL & BONES" was the unusual story of buried bodies in Maine and the nebbishy young man who tried to escape the clutches of the Millennium Group. It showed what "really" happened to Cheryl Andrews (the great CCH Pounder), in case we weren't to believe last season's "THE HAND OF ST. SEBASTIAN". "THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY" was the disturbing and atmospheric story of an Oregon child molester released after several years to his old hometown, only to have his past and a new set of crimes follow him there.

Chris Carter wanted to prove he could do it again. Fox TV was hoping for another cash cow. Carter was determined to do something that was *not* the X-Files. Millenium was launched, and from the beginning it was hard to tell what, exactly, the series was about.

Each of the three seasons has a distinct identity. The first season is (mostly) an unremittingly grim serial-killer-of-the-week series, with people being set on fire, having their eyes sewn shut, and other atrocities. The show survived because of the moral center provided by Frank Black, who has journeyed into the heart of evil and was almost consumed by it. Retired from the FBI and recruited into the Millenium group, an association of former law enforcement officers, Frank is forced to protect his wife and daughter from the evil around them.

Carter closely supervised the first season and was careful to avoid explicit references to the supernatural. This was *not*, he repeated, *not* the X-Files. But even in the first season, the producers couldn't refrain from introducing a fantastic element, although in very small doses.

Many of the plots were incoherent and only partly explained; but we were used to this because of the X-Files.

In the second season, Carter turned to series over to producers Morgan and Wong, who took the show in very interesting directions. The Millenium Group is now revealed to be a conspiracy, itself divided by a struggle between religious and scientific camps. Both fear a coming apocalypse in 2000 and are in fact working to bring it about.

Just as the show was really becoming interesting, with a dramatic conclusion to Season 2, Carter returned to the show, unhappy with the direction Morgan and Wong had taken it.
