Product Description

Product Description

From the mind of Chris Carter, the multi-award-winning creator of The X-Files, comes MILLENNIUM. Lance Henriksen (Aliens) stars as Frank Black, a former FBI serial profiler who can “see” the world through the eyes of the killers he hunts. This uncanny ability – vivid flashes of insight into the murderers’ motivations – helps him solve crimes of unspeakable violence. A loving husband and father to a young daughter, Black struggles to protect his family from the malevolence and overcome the darkness of the criminal soul.

Millennium - The Complete First Season
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.

Millennium - The Complete Second Season
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.

Millennium - The Complete Third Season
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).

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By "karlbuzz" on April 6 2004
Format: VHS Tape
I thought the Millenium on Fox was the best SFi/adventure series on TV,I actually started to like it more than the X-Files series. I never knew that it was being taken off the air untill I waited for it to come back on in the Fall season and to my dismay it did not. It would be nice if the Sc-Fi channel would become interested in it and started a new series. Chris Carter have you thought about "reinventing it on a channel like the Sci-Fi channel". My comments will probably go by the wayside...but just maybe some how "Out there" someone will think about the possibilities of bringing it back.

I hope somebody out there listens to the voices of consumers here! There WILL be buyers if the DVD's ever come out. No matter how many years go by, many -TV- viewers will still count this series as the best, or one of the VERY best series ever. I was surprised when I had to admit I loved it even more than X-Files. It's in the league with Twin Peaks, in my opinion, as the most intelligent, creative and addicting made-for-tv entertainment; so addicting to those who followed it, that -we- still-play them over and over again. And no matter how many times I hear the theme song, I get chills.(I have the full version of the theme music on my computer. The full length version is never heard before, during or after any episodes. I managed to tape all of the episodes on VHS, but their condition is marginal and I would pay ANYTHING for the DVD series. I found the VHS tape in SP with its case for "Somehow Satan got behind me" and "The time is now." It was made for Emmy consideration and collectors can find it sometimes. I have found the series in VHS for sale online, but sadly they are in PAL format (Europe) and won't play onVCR's in US. --A real FANatic.

Millennium," undoubtedly the darkest television drama produced to date, had no rivals when it came to dramatic storytelling. Both the consistently high artistic production values of the show and its powerful subject matter made this series truly unique in the annals of television history. Frank Black's battle against darkness, week after week, stunned viewers on both intellectual and emotional levels. Never before have episodic stories been so imbued with honesty, emotion, exploration and experimentation. "Millennium" was, week after week, successful on nearly every level of production. Vastly superior to its sister show, "The X-Files," this series had no peers. Perhaps too different, too visceral and painfully honest at times, the public seemingly shunned the series leaving only a cult following to invest their hearts and minds in the characters and mythology. "Millennium" grew over the course of three years into one of television's most powerful and unique drama series of all time. As intelligent and artistic as the now famous "Twin Peaks", Frank Black's investigations were continually being shaped by a group of brilliant writers and producers. The show truly deserves a spot in the annals of television history and will always remain prominent in the hearts of its loyal fans.

I have been noticing that many new and old (some very old) TV series are being released on DVD. BUT why oh why has my favorite TV series of all time- Millenium not been released?!?!? Especially when I see some rather dubious choices released recently! I only watched this series because of the X-files, but found myself liking it immensely better!! Please-to the powers that be- I implore you- produce Millennium on DVD!! There are certainly countless others that share these thoughts!!

....right up there with the likes of Twin Peaks and The Prisoner. This show is a welcome relief from the bloated glut of lowest-common-denominator sitcom/reality fare currently beaming your way, courtesy of the network powers-that-be. MM succeeded in articulating an original and compelling artistic vision, especially during its second season. Most highly recommended for thoughtful viewers!!
(And yes, I can't wait for seasons 1 & 2 to come out on DVD!)

I'm adding my voice to the list of others here who have expressed their interest in seeing the Millenium TV series brought to DVD.
I read just over a year ago on [...] ([...]) that Millenium may be coming to DVD, however, I have yet to find any additional information on this topic.
I loved this series and was very sad to see it come to such a sudden end. If it ever makes it to DVD, I'll be there to buy it.
