Trivia

During a 2016 interview on Kumail Nanjiani's podcast "The X-Files Files," "X-Files" writer and "Millennium" showrunner Glen Morgan said that because "Millennium"'s ratings were low, they had the idea to do a "Millennium" episode involving the Peacock family characters from the "X-Files" episode "Home," for which Morgan was the cowriter. The Peacocks were a reclusive, heavily deformed, murderous family that had sustained itself by inbreeding for many generations and that kept its limbless matriarch under a bed. The original airing of "Home" had been controversial; it was the first "X-Files" episode to receive a TV-MA rating, and FOX refused to allow it to be rerun. But since it was also one of the highest-rated and most-talked-about "X-Files" episodes ever, Morgan thought the return of the characters might boost "Millennium"'s ratings. They cleared the idea with Peter Roth (then the head of FOX TV) and Karin Konoval, the actress who played Mrs. Peacock, but then Roth called Morgan back and said that "News Corp, FOX, lobbyists in Washington...somehow got wind and said 'those characters never appear on television again.'"

User Reviews

One of the greatest artistic works of the 20th century.
14 August 1999 | by (Tell City, indiana) – See all my reviews

Fantastic mixture of drama, suspense, action, horror, and mystery. Raises the bar of Television to a whole new level. The masterful combination no-tell-all driven plot and detailed personal characters creates a canvas on which great things have come. The dark photography and surreal flash scenes surpass current mystery and horror series. The detailed historical and mythological connections interwoven within the story line is commendable. This series does not rely on a physical monster, but the monster within everyone. The horror of pure evil and the evils of mankind. The music of Mark Snow is an excellent backdrop to this type of setting. His use of synthesized strings in thick chords compliments the dark visions of the drama. Snow also uses sounds and alterations of the human voice to set effect. The use of a solo violin in the main title and though out the series reflects the struggle of a single man (Frank Black) against the undeviating force of evil in the world. Together, Carter's vision for a dark, artistic drama has come to life.
