A funny self-parody episode from writer Darin Morgan (X-Files).
6 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is the wittiest episode of the brooding, unrelentingly dark and gloomy series 'Millennium.' It's a stand-alone in the tradition of the funny "X-Files" shows written by Darin Morgan, and can be enjoyed without knowing the mythology of the series. Four earth-bound demons (disguised as normal middle-aged men) discuss the human condition and their latest adventures in finding souls to damn to Hell for Satan. There are 4 stories, and all are fine examples of very dark humor. One demon tells of his escapades with a stereotypical serial killer's efforts to "be Number One in US history"; another works to drive a TV-network censor towards an insane, murderous rampage; a third uses subtlety in showing a man the tedious boredom of his mundane, hopeless life (whereupon he commits suicide); and the fourth expresses regret in igniting, then extinguishing, the love-life of an aging stripper. In true Morgan fashion, the writing has biting social commentary, cultural satire, observant insight into the human psyche, and a lot of funny lines. This is the only "MilleniuM" episode I saw fit to record on VCR and keep after 10 years. It's now been transferred to DVD - a real keeper.
