1. About You.
Millennium Fan, Cinema Aficionado, Radio Presenter and General Entertainment geek. I am currently in charge of the Millennium Face Book fan page and have been an “on again off again” webmaster and on-line Millennium community supporter over the years. Currently in an ON period 😉
2. Why are you a fan?
This question is a bit like asking someone why they like chocolate….although aside from the taste, I guess chocolate has little more to offer. I have a morbid fascination with serial killers, forensics and criminal pathology. I used to enjoy the X-Files, but it lost me when the whole alien conspiracy took over around Season 4, so I watched the Pilot of Millennium and was immediately hooked! The writing, direction and design of the series was incredible and like nothing I had ever seen on TV before.
3. How long have you been a fan?
Since the pilot episode aired here in Australia back in the late 90’s. The third season never aired on commercial television in Australia, so it wasn’t until around 2002 that I stayed up until 2:30am every Sunday to watch it on FOX 8 (a satellite pay TV channel) and then of course re-watched it in a more coherent state on DVD a few years after that.
4. What’s your favorite episode.
My favorite episode is weirdly the only one not to feature Frank Black….Anamnesis. I just love the interaction between Catherine & Lara.
5. What’s your favorite scene or moment?
Only one moment….hmmm tough one….“Say, would you like to come back to my
apartment and take my portrait? Bring a wide-angle lens.” That or the entire Patti Smith track montage from The Time Is Now
6. If a movie was made which characters would you like to see in it?
Frank, Jordan, Lara Means, Detective Giebelhouse, Brian Roedecker & Lucy Butler. (Would have been nice to see a return of Avatar too, but I guess with a number of films now based on the zodiac killer this plot point would seem a little stale)
7. Why do you think Millennium should come back?
For a number of reasons. Firstly, I think the show was very much ahead of its time and now more than ever would suit a return. Secondly, I think fans would like the opportunity to find out what happened….whilst we did get The X-Files cross-over, it did not really go into any details about what happened after the series ended and whilst I wouldn’t expect a film or series to address this, it would be nice to just see that the characters lived on.
1. What are you watching right now?
Currently I am keeping up with Castle, Dexter, Dollhouse and The Mentalist.
