    THE BEST SEASON OF TELEVISION EVER!

    Chris Carter's 'MILLENNIUM' was maybe the best show ever to premiere on television, and it only lasted 3 seasons. The second season is widely and smartly considered the best. To use the terminology from NBC's 'The West Wing' commercials (during Season 6), 'it was a season of change.' The executive producer/creator Chris Carter focused on season 5 of his original creation THE X-FILES and focused on the X-FILES movie ('Fight the Future'). Thusly, exec. duties went to writing team Glen Morgan & James Wong, who fans know from their quirky scripts for THE X-FILES and their creation of the short-lived FOX series 'SPACE: Above & Beyond'. They wrote half the second season of MILLENNIUM, and kept watch over other stories without their credit. Beginning where Season 1 left off, 'The Beginning & The End' was the conclusion of a cliffhanger season finale the previous year in which Catherine (Megan Gallagher), Frank's wife, is finally kidnapped by the very threatening Polaroid Stalker (Doug Hutchison). When Frank retrieves her and goes over the edge to exact revenge on the villain, he leaves her, but must keep his yellow house (in case of reconciliation). In 'Beware of the Dog', Frank travels to Bucksnort to solve a series of animal attacks and finds it is the balance of good and evil, and a Millennium Group elder known as the Old Man (R.G. Armstrong) has lived there, keeping records for the Group. In 'Monster', the Group gives an unofficial partner to Frank in the person of Lara Means (Kristen Cloke from 'Space: Above and Beyond'). She's a forensic psychologist who has the ability to see angels during tense and dangerous moments. They team up to discover the identity of a child abuser in an Arkansas daycare center. This was maybe the best stand-alone story of the season. Holidays like Halloween and Christmas played a major part in the show's best episodes, 'The Curse of Frank Black' and 'Midnight of the Century' (respectively). In the former, Frank takes his daughter Jordan (Brittany Tiplady) trick-or-treating and discovers a frightening ghost haunting him. In the latter, Frank gets a bizarre sign to visit his estranged father (Darren McGavin) and make amends, and they reconnect after many years. Some episodes were apocalyptic in focus, moreso than season 1. '19:19' brought an Oklahoma kook to the forefront, with World War III visions driving him to kidnap a school busload of children (for their own good). The Millennium Group got an X-FILES-esque tuneup with stories like 'The Hand of Saint Sebastian' adding to their mystique with the story of a holy relic in Germany, and Frank and Peter going to find it, while a traitor within the Group hinders them at every turn. The two-part story 'Owls' and 'Roosters' brought us a tale of civil war in the Group, between two factions believing two different meanings exist for the discovery of the Crucifixion Cross in Damascus. Writer/Director Darin Morgan injected comedy (admittedly of the dark vein) into the series with two classic episodes: 'Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense', which brought back Charles Nelson Reilly from his X-FILES episode (two seasons previous, also written by Morgan) in order to make the writer a target of a 'selfosophy' group assassin while he researches millennial prophecy, events and self-help groups. 'Somehow, Satan Got Behind Me' was the hilarious tale of four demons gathering in a coffee shop late at night to share stories of humanity, all with Frank in the background. Both feature the underrated actor Dan Zukovic in key roles. Some episodes dealt with key social issues: 'Goodbye Charlie'=doctor assisted euthanasia, 'Siren'=illegal immigrants, 'Anamnesis'=school violence. Some just borrowed from movies: 'The Pest House' ='URBAN LEGEND'. 'In Arcadia Ego'='THELMA & LOUISE' crossed with 'BONNIE & CLYDE'. Some went back (somewhat) to the original serial killer stories of yore, like 'The Mikado', in which an 'AVATAR' killer murders online while Gilbert & S
