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

The third season was more like the first, but simply lacked the energy of the first two seasons. It seemed muted, and hinted at issues from Season 2 that were major, and could not (and should not) have been ignored. The overall strange and disconnected feeling changes the way I view the show, but the reality is that it's still very well written - and very much ahead of it's time. If you liked Season 1, then you will like Season 3. If you enjoyed the direction Season 2 went, then you will still like this third Season, but will not enjoy it as much.
I gave this 4 stars because I reserve 5 stars for the previous season. Despite my critisisms, it is still a really cool show, and for the price you should not pass this up!
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.
As it turns out, things do go back to normal. The viral outbreak gets severly downplayed, merely a few characters don't come back. However, it's now Frank Black working for the FBI and the Millenium Group lurking about in the shadows. Makes for good conflict. The new star Klea Scott is a likeable charater; the Scully to Frank Black's Mulder. The pair also do a great job with the commentary for a few of the episodes.
The set is well worth the purchase even if you're worried about the turn the series took after season 2. I can say with confidence that things pick up and it becomes more like season 1. Just don't expect the final season to answer many questions. The show was cancelled right before the end of the world stuff goes down. However, they included the X-Files Episode: Millenium as a special feature, so you do get to see Frank Black battle zombies, thus giving a bizzare sense of closure on the whole story.
