Seven and One: Sean Stubblefield!


This is fun – our first Seven and One “advanced” questionnaire return! As you may recall, we added a new set of questions for those more adventurous in their answers, and the first one back has come from Millennium/BacktoFrankBlack diligent follower, Sean Stubblefield! For an interesting comparison, Sean has already had his Seven and One [Basic] published, so for those feeling studious, why not cross compare what he says! Anyway, without further ado, the stages is yours Sean!

1. About You.

White male, 37, single, residing in Houston TX.

Relatively unknown “starving artist” writer of sci-fi short stories, philosophy and media commentary, with Bachelor’s degree in TV/Film production and media studies. An advocate for media literacy & liberty.

Stories and storytelling are important to me. I take their power and creation seriously… respectfully.

I have a deep fascination with the unknown and the unusual, as well as the paranormal.

I feel most alive when I’m traveling/ exploring… wandering & wondering. Discovering.

Other interests include story consulting, photography, rock climbing, mountain biking and beaches.

I collect books and gargoyles. Proud and happy to be geek.

2. What was the most horrifying moment in the show?

The most disturbing moment for me was in the pilot, when Frank & Bletch opened that box to reveal a guy with eyes and mouth sewn shut. That really creeped me out, and definitely stuck with me. I was impressed that a TV show would be so bold in mainstream prime time—back in the ‘90s. to me, no other scene in the show lived up to the graphic horrificness of that.

But, of course, there are different kinds and degress of horrific. such as when Frank dipped Jordan in the ice water, or when Lara went insane. perhaps Bletcher hanging gutted in Frank’s basement, or Frank killing Polaroid Man there while Catherine watched. Frank in shock to realize Catherine is dead. maybe some of the questionable things The Group did under Mabius’ influence.

3. What’s your favourite quote from the show?

FRANK: “They believe we can’t just sit back and hope for a happy ending.”

and

PETER: “The future. Of the future.”

In response to MR. OTTO: ”It’s clear Johnston has been murdered. If any evidence should indicate responsibility of either Owls or Roosters, I’m sure you know what’s in danger.”


4. What’s your favourite piece of music in Millennium (incidental or song)?

Mark Snow’s opening theme music has always struck me as the best intro music of any TV show I’ve ever seen. I love the whole style of his approach, and can’t narrow my fave to a single song.

5. What is your opinion as to the nature of Frank’s Gift?

Despite Frank’s (and Carter’s) denial/preference otherwise, the gift is clearly psychic in nature. As Peter says, “We both know your daughter doesn’t just dream, Frank.”

If Jordan’s gift is “supernatural”, then so is Frank’s. If Frank’s gift isn’t supernatural, then why the bonding over the issue between Frank and Lara? Or the relating of Frank to his mother? Simply being very “insightful” doesn’t account for all the things he could “see”.

6. What’s your favourite episode ending?

The first one that comes to mind is when Frank carried Jordan up the snowy mountain to share with her the view that he and Bletch had shared.


1. If you were given the chance to make a Millennium movie, what would you focus on and why?

The reconstitution of The Millennium Group to fulfill their objective.

Well, an obvious reference would be the approaching 2012 serving as another millennial event. However, the millennium isn’t an event… it’s a process.

Also, I would comment on how our culture—our governments—our media failed to properly use the millennial anxiety to propel us into creating a better future for ourselves. We are still in the millennial age, still racing. The end hasn’t been averted, as most apparently assume; indeed we are fully immersed in it.

But the principal message would be that “we can’t just sit back and hope for a happy ending.” We are all shepherds.

We must live as if pulled by the future, not pushed by the past.
