Frank, Lara and Peter all get pass-phrases to use for the voice identification of the Millennium Group network. All are references to classic science fiction movies: Frank's phrase "Soylent Green is people" is taken from 'Stanley R. Greens' Soylent Green (1973), while Lara's pass-phrase "Open the pod bay doors please, Hal" refers to Stanley Kubrick2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Peter's is "My God! It's full of stars!!" from 'Peter Hyams' "2010: The Year We Make Contact" (1984). See more »
I don't think I've ever fully gotten over the cancellation of Millennium. Re-watching the old episodes on the FX channel, you can really see how well written most of the episodes were and the characters were all memorable and likeable. Right up until the very last season, where I personally feel the writers ruined the series. The two episodes, the cliffhanger before the last season, were incredibly well done, I'd even say masterpieces, titled "The Four Horsemen" and "The Time is Now". But they missed the point when they came back the next season. We were expecting to see the series go in the direction of Frank and his daughter trying to survive a holocaust and instead they copped out. We could have had an amazing survival story there. What a shame. But, I highly recommend watching the reruns of this series if you can. It really was so much better than the X Files. And it will forever be sorely missed. The character of Frank Black did guest star on an X File episode after Millennium was cancelled and I'm still hoping for at least one more appearance. It's so hard to let a good character go forever.
