Millennium

So at the weekend I got some freebie tickets to the London Art Fair [but was unable to go due to the icy conditions] from a gallery called Millennium  Given the last two days posts this minded me of the excellent [cut off in its prime] TV series written by X-files Chris Carter, that aired from 1996-1999 of the same name, starring [undoubtedly his best work] the always compelling Lance Henriksen.

The series takes place during the years leading up to 2000, and follows the investigations of  freelance forensic profiler and former FBI agent Frank Black (Henriksen), who has the ability to see the world through the eyes of serial killers and murderers. Black works for a mysterious organization known as the Millennium Group who throughout its history has had access to scientific knowledge banned or withheld from the world at large by those in power. The two factions in the group, theologians who believe in an apocalyptic event foretold in the Bible and their secular counterparts share the belief that the world is coming to an end; but each has its own views regarding the source of the apocalypse.

Living at a time when all talk was about Millennium bugs and the like, the series was very gripping. Hard to believe that was already 15 years ago. The opening Credits soundtrack felt very dark and melancholy.
