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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Millenniun TV Fox Series 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 kind of remembered the series millennium so I ordered it being a Chris carpenter creation. It came promptly, well packaged. I've just started watching it and once again I'm hooked. What a great series. I wish carpenter continued with the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first time Aug. 19 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked the series when I saw it back when it was on "regular" network. Now seeing it without commercials and one episod after another is great... I can follow the story line underneath the series more easily. I also I am able to introduce it to my son who was way too young when the series was on.
The resolution is also very good

Je n'avais pas vue originalement la série mais j'en avais entendu parlé et je n'ai pas été déçu de mon achat. Mais c'est drôle de voir l'évolution entre les technique de tournage et la scénarisation d'une série de cette époque et celles d'aujourd'hui, le rythme étant extrêmement différent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Millennium was the best show April 26 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Why they took Millennium off the air I will never know. I looked forward to the show every Friday night. Fox should have let it go on to at least the year 2000 like it was meant to be. Please bring out a boxed set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Millenium TV Series Deserves to be on DVD Jan. 6 2004
Format:VHS Tape
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.

I , like many others before me, loved the Millenium series . I have looked tirelessly for the video or DVD set of the complete Millenium series to no avail. There are so many inferior shows that have managed to be released, why does a quality show like this one get overlooked? Please give us what we want...Millenium unabridged in either DVD or VHS!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Where's the boxset? Jan. 5 2004

I agree with the other latest posters. Millennium was a great show that was killed too early. For Fox: if there were a boxset I would buy it.
