Chris Carter's Millennium Season 1 (video inside)

Great show. Season one was as great as any single season of The X-Files. If you haven't seen it you should. Unlike other shows Carter did, this one felt wholly unique and didn't rip off X-Files themes, conspiracies or the trust dynamic until it was brutally dumbed down by the Fox network in Season 2 when they handed it over to simplistic writers James Wong and Glen Morgan; Chris Carter was too busy overseeing The X-Files Season 5 and the film. The first season really tries to give serial killers a more realistic depiction in often making them sympathetic and torn.

Here's the pilot, which is all I could find on youtube.com, and it's not as great as it will become with the family dynamic coming across as a bit too self-conscious, but around Disc 2 or 3 is when things really get great on the DVD set. Even the second episode is much better. Frank Black's scene describing things to the police about the killer is fantastic, though; such a quiet confidence to his character! Terry O'Quinn from "Lost" is great, too. Big thanks to whoever uploaded it on youtube.com.

I watched it on TV

I remember liking it.

The Frank Black character, was a little bit older and I figured he would not have the fan base of a David
Duchovny

also, looking at
imdb
it appears John Locke from Lost (Terry
O'Quinn
) was a regular, too.

I rarely watch anything on a computer screen, (well, lets just say television and films) I realize there is a large portion of the population that does.

I hate the short time limits on the downloads.

Oh, me too.

Deep, the first two of your three links aren't working - they don't function as links.

They were not links

did you see my edit

wow, I left the Firefox spellcheck on and it did this RED font crap

I did cut and paste Terry O'Quinn name from imdb.com
and the link, came with the paste

I then clicked on "spellcheck" in my firefox toolbar

it turned
Duchovny
imdb
and O'Quinn

red and underlined them (Firefox considered them misspelled)

I then hit reply before turning "spellcheck" off

and the new board, automatically added the "red font and underlining".

this never happened with the old board.

It's really cheap nowadays on DVD. Try to buy Season 1 if you like it because Fox will respond to commercial sales with a film. I also detest watching stuff on computer.

It's less than $32 on amazon.com:
http://www.amazon.com/Millennium-Com...1880889&sr=1-2

and less than $40 CDN on amazon.ca:
Amazon.ca: Millennium: Season 1: DVD

That's a great deal for 24 episodes.

i don't know why, but i just could not get into this serious. it's not like i didn't try. i was just unimpressed.

i actually got pissed off at that one xf episode when scully got that tattoo of the snake from the millennium series. it was a borderline crossover, and i didn't have much of a social life in high school. thus, i got mad.

Didn't Millennium come on the air after the episode with Scully's tattoo? That episode was in ... season 4, right? Yeah, cancer stuff. Season 4.

for real??? it did? bc i totally remember the snake tat being a reference to Millenium...but...i also have a bad memory.

ETA: i just looked and saw that season 4 began in 1996, so did millenium.
ETA SOME MORE: Never Again aired in Feb 1997, Millenium began in Oct 1996

i'm not trying to nitpick at all, after your comment i seriously thought i had conjured up this memory from makebelieve land and got concerned.
