IMO, the most memorable episode of a great series
11 January 2009 | by (Maryland USA) – See all my reviews

Like X-Files, I thought Millennium was best when it strayed from the "conspiracy" episodes (while they never turned me off, I just found them way too overbearing and self-important) and just developed characters and story in a single episode. For that reason, IMO, this was the best Millennium episode of all. I suppose it works well because we know Frank Black and can relate to his obsession with a mystery and the macabre (which requires a knowledgeable viewer), but given that background, this episode was a visionary and fantastic excursion into the kind of obsession we all struggle with to one extent or another -- plus it had the added bonus of mostly taking place in a remote northern wilderness that only added to dissonant juxtaposition of an impersonal and unforgiving natural beauty against an intensely personal struggle of a man against the world. Great script, great acting, great episode. I remember it well ten years later -- good enough that I'm tempted to buy the complete series just to be able to view this one episode again.
