5.0 out of 5 stars The Time Is Near... well, it was... 9 Oct 2004
By P. Cox
The second season of Millennium, a dark and unsettling TV drama series starring Lance Henriksen, was notably different in tone, in style and in thematic content when compared to the first season. Whereas the first season looked at the evil acts committed by man usually in the form of a criminal investigations into serial murderers, the second had a more spiritual and supernatural feel to it. This was a purposeful move made by the show's new commanders, Glen Morgan & James Wong (creators of Space: Above & Beyond), and on initial viewing of these episodes after watching the first season, the changes are a little jarring.
However, once you've grown accustomed to the marginally lighter mood and the sporadic shifts in tone (as good as the comedy episodes are, they simply feel out of place), this is a highly commendable season. More time is taken to explore the shadowy motives of the Millennium Group that Frank Black consults for. Terry O'Quinn's character Peter Watts takes a more prominent role, and the edition of Kristen Cloke as Lara Means is welcome. Though Megan Gallagher is still on the opening credits for every episode, her appearances are few and far between this season.
The highlights in Millennium's middle season for me are "The Mikado" (a deeply suspenseful and nerve-shredding tale of how the internet can be abused), "A Room With No View" (the chilling return of evil-incarnate Lucy Butler), the "Owls" / "Roosters" two-part story (which explores a divide within the Millennium Group) and the climactic two-parter "The Fourth Horseman" / "The Time Is Now" (in which a lethal plague looks set to trigger the apocalypse).
For all of this season's strengths however, I felt that there were slightly more episodes that fell flat than in the first season.

By Mr. D. Woods VINE VOICE
The second season of 'Millennium' has divided the show's fans as to whether it develops the themes set up in Season 1 or destroys them entirely but I can only see this part of the saga as the moment when it became truly groundbreaking TV. Anchored by Lance Henriksen's incredible performance as Frank Black, new helmers Dan Morgan and James Wong develop the show into an unsettling, clever, twisted and adrenalin-soaked experience.

Don't get me wrong, Season 1 is powerful viewing, but Season 2 simply builds on the themes the show originally presented and creates a signature series that leaves you utterly stunned by its quality. Whatever your feelings on Season 1, it is surely obvious that it began recycling the same formula in each episode and the serial-killer-of-the-week format started becoming redundant by the middle part of the series. I honestly don't think the show could have continued in this vein as it would have become rather stale. Morgan and Wong introduced a story arc, which the show needed, developed the existing characters, built on the supernatural suggestiveness (think 'Force Majeur' from 1) and focused more attentively to the shady Millennium Group; all of which served to create a more exciting and urgent atmosphere as the countdown to the Millennium itself begins.

I also do not agree that Morgan and Wong betrayed the show's roots: the bleak atmosphere remains and episodes such as the brilliant 'The Mikado' disturb you long after viewing. The central theme of man's innate darkness is also more than evident, only The Group are now the example being held up for scrutiny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Morgan and Wong's Millenium Vision 27 Jun 2011
Season Two of Millennium develops the saga of the Black family. With the strains on Frank and Catherine's marriage and the burden on Catherine of Jordan's undeniable visions, her own abduction, Frank's descent into the manifestations of his visions (and not to mention the sullying of the 'yellow house'), the duplicity of the Group becomes ever more obvious - even to the dedicated Peter Watts. Enter Lara Leans (Kristen Cloke) as a non-romantic, sassy side kick who - with her own visions - shares Frank's doubts about the Group's intentions. A couple of great episodes from Darin Morgan, including a Frank-lite parody; the story-line of the Owls and the Rosters present the story arc in its full detail; and a sans-Frank episode where Catherine and Lara go head-to-head against the backdrop of Patti Smith, is a season highlight. Of course we love Morgan and Wong's episodes: This is Who We Are!

3.0 out of 5 stars One Is The All 10 Feb 2006
By Craobh Rua VINE VOICE
Created by Chris Carter, "Millennium" first appeared on television in 1996. It stars Lance Henriksen as Frank Black, a former FBI Agent who specialised in profiling serial killers. Frank retired from the Bureau after suffering a breakdown and moved from Washington to Seattle. However, he didn't completely sever his ties with the world in which he once worked and joined a team of ex-law enforcement agents known as the "Millennium Group". During season one the group appeared happy to lend their expertise to whatever investigation required their help.
With season one, Carter successfully created a murder-mystery show that was dark, could be disturbing and had a real sense of evil. Unlike "The X-Files", there wasn't anything 'unusual' about the show. Frank was not supposed to be a psychic, nor was his gift a form of telepathy - he was simply a very talented serial profiler who could put himself in the killer's head. However, for season two, Carter was a little too busy with the X-Files to take the same hands-on approach. As a result, Glen Morgan and James Wong were brought in as Executive Producers - the pair also wrote a substantial part of the season and changed the focus of the show entirely. If anything, season two became exactly what season one wasn't : rather than the dark murder-mystery show it had been, it morphed into a conspiracy-based, X-Files clone.
As the show's central character, these changes have a direct impact on Frank - one of the key changes centres on his ability. With season two, Frank's gift becomes firmly established as some form of psychic ability that can be passed from one generation to another. Frank's thoughts and comments are, at times, so surreal that he almost becomes Fox Mulder with wrinkles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bought for husband
This was bought for my husband, who was raving about it. I thought it was OK however in some of the episodes I felt myself drifting away, bit formula for my tastes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ending
A slight change of direction in season 2 with more humour and Frank's character being fleshed out. Brilliant ending. The scientology spoof episode is hilarious.
