THIS was what Millennium was supposed to be about!
21 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is the BEST episode of the whole series - the best.

Every once in a blue moon, I get synchronistically lucky & would catch a glimpse of a TV show that I would generally not take any interest in, but somewhere in the frenzy of channel surfing, I'd be enraptured by a moment - caught by a connection of energy & words that together have a message - for those that have ears to hear... 1 such moment was from a late night sitcom rerun - I happen to catch the lead comedian-actress go into a serious moment & talk about the importance of being in intimate relationships & her desire to find someone - the idea of being WITNESSED throughout her life by someone who chooses to be by her side, acknowledge her presence & whose heart feels the emptiness when she is no longer there. The depth of that kind of connection was what she longed for - OMG brilliant!

And so this is the 2nd - The writers of this particular Millennium episode must have been on something very, very special because in this show, they broach the essence of WHY WE ARE HERE. There are so many quotes from the young man's diary, that I wrote down and had even memorized, at one point - like prayers or confirmations. And when I occasionally put the DVD in to watch it, I am reminded of how grateful to be on a planet that has some advanced beings on it - they show us The Way in whichever medium they have access to, & TV has such a vast audience. Now, if only the rest of us could watch this episode & allow it to work its magic within - this planet would be a far better place. Simply beautiful. Holy. I am grateful to have witnessed Luminary - the title is apt!
