One of the best shortlived shows out there at times it surpassed the X-Files.

I enjoyed it early on, then found it dull. The season two finale made me actually turn off the TV, briefly. Never again will I watch Kristen Cloke roll dice and go nuts for seven minutes while Patty Smith's "Horses" plays in the background. Oy. Season three supposedly got things back on course, but I couldn't bring myself to watch it.

^^^ QUA? I loved that two part season finale, couldn't believe that an entire segment of the show was devoted to Patti Smith's "Horses". What other show in TV History has EVER used that song (Sure, it was commercial for Patti, but it's a rippin tune. Lenny Kaye baby!) for someone who was having an epic breakdown with apocalyptic omens? It worked for me because I couldn't believe it just kept going, and going, and going. Though Cloke does look weird in close-ups.

Season 3 BLEW! They wrote out Cloke, Frank's wife, John Locke was scantly seen. Plus, Morgan and Wong weren't involved anymore and thus no Darin Morgan, who wrote the comedic episodes.

Anybody else notice the GREEN!!! MODERATORS, BABY!!! "I HAVE THE POWER!!!"

Doc rocks.

Maybe I just wasn't ready for something like it. I had pretty well soured on the show by then, anyway, and it seemed very self-indulgent. Though I did like the end, with Frank catatonic and Jordan in his lap, laughing.

Too bad season three sucked. They really shouldn't have been able to have a season three, should they? Wasn't the plague supposed to kill at least hundreds of thousands, if not millions? Whoops! October comes, it was just an epidemiological blip -- at least according to "The X-Files."

Didn't Millenium actually end in a season 7 x-files episode? I remember not watching the show because it freaked me the hell out.

I never saw it, so I just did a web search. Frank and Jordan fleeing from the wrath of the Group? Jebus, did Carter not know how to end a show except with the protagonists fleeing the wrath of a powerful group?
