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).

The Millenium group is a covert task froce trying to prevent the end of the world who enlist Frank as a member to further their cause.
Season 2 ended with a viral outbreak that left alot of people dead including Franks wife.
Frank beleives the group is responsible thus moving the storyline for season 3 at an incdebile speed.
This show had no equal and being that Chris Carters other show on fox at the time was such a huge hit they really let him and his crew run deep with Millenium.
Too bad it ended here but then again it did end strong so maybe it is all for the better.
Today you will find numerous shows on tv that possess the same ideas as Millenium did then but NONE of them have the heart or balls like this show did.
The addition of Emma Hollis as Franks partner here works way better than it has any right to.
Franks daughter Jordan is a natural.
The two seem like actual father and daughter.
The scripts and pacing and atmosphere are unlike anything on tv then or now.
This is top shelf viewing that never bows to mediocrity or wavers to soften the blows.
This show has teeth and bites hard.
I would like to see this on the big screen someday.
Worked for Twin Peaks and more recently Firefly why not Millenium?!?!
If you have never seen Millenium buy all 3 seasons turn out the lights and prepare yourself for a hell of a ride cause this show is as good as it gets...ever!
(And yes, I can't wait for seasons 1 & 2 to come out on DVD!)
Although no longer an agent, Frank hasn't completely severed his ties with the world in which he once worked. He has joined a team of ex-law enforcement agents known as the "Millennium Group". Little of the Group's history or structure is given away during the first season, though it does appear to be well connected and has access to a great deal of information. However, only very few members other than Frank are introduced - his main contact is Peter Watts, played by Terry O'Quinn. Nevertheless, those who work for the group appear to be happy to lend their expertise to whatever investigation requires their help. A cop in Seattle before he joined the Bureau, Frank occasionally works with Bob Bletcher - a friend and former colleague at the Seattle PD's homicide department. Given Frank's experience, the bulk of his work continues to focus on suspected serial killers. He also has a very useful gift that helps with investigations. When, for example, he visits a crime scene or views a body, Frank can see what the killer saw - something he describes as both a gift and a curse. However, he is not supposed to be a psychic, nor is his ability supposed to be a form of telepathy : he was simply a very gifted individual who could 'put himself' in the killer's head.
In addition to the pilot and the twenty-one episodes of season one, there are some special features on the sixth disc.Read more ›
