It's 1999, and as the end of the millenium approaches, people are attempting to find spiritual enlightenment. But a few people want to skip all the work that entails, and a holy Tenktonese relic in the hands of a heretic is giving them a shortcut. But it's not quite as easily controlled as she says.

While some real-world items are represented by something similar in the Portal "world", others are clearly not. The Portal is repeatedly explained as an illusory projection where everyone sees something different and has no "real" substance. The plank that Jennifer kicks off does not necessarily have a counterpart in this illusion, and having more experience, she could have learned to manipulate the illusions to her liking. See more »
Of all the Alien Nations TV movies of the nineties, this one is my favorite. Millennium sets the timetable for the movies and the TV series.
I've always been fascinated by the millennium's coming. When I saw this movie in 1996 I was impressed with the Los Angeles from December 1999. A week before the millennium. The story was incredible. The music is outstanding. The characters are brilliant!
Matthew Sykes and George Francisco are two of the best characters on TV. I'm really fond of these two. Matthew and Cathy are growing more and more closer together. Emily has grown up a lot and lives her complicated teenage years. Buck was fantastic and he's changing towards the better.
I found the Portal story to be one of the best! The visual sequences were stunning and brilliant! This story contains a lot of spirituality. It's amazing to see how both humans and newcomers were willing together to enter the portal and refuse to face reality, no matter how hard it is.
The coming of the Millennium was very realistic. The people in the movie played it perfectly. All are in distress, attempting to control a city gone mad.
The only thing I didn't understand is what was all that about a dentist. Apparently that gave all away to Matt and George.
This movie is excellent! I recommend any fan of the series to watch it!
