Somehow, a song by Black Flag ended up in a TV Show, 16 February 2014
Author: XweAponX from United States

And THAT should have driven the poor Network TV Censor (Who may or may not have been Dan Zukovic who was in "Jose Chug's Doomsday Defense") even more insane than seeing a little Red Devil singing with Henry Rollins' Voice.

This episode clearly shows the Genius of Darren Morgan, Producer Glen Morgan's brother, who with partner James Wong turned the 2nd season of MillenniuM on it's ear. This was after the demise of their show "Space: Above and Beyond", so the wealth of actors used in that show find their way into MillenniuM, including the great Doug Hutchison. In fact, one of the devils (In his "natural" state) looks a bit like Doug.

As four devils converge on a lone Doughnut shop at the Witching Hour of the night, they swap war/horror stories with each other on the best ways to get Humans to damn themselves. As one Daemon puts it, "You don't have to do anything, the Humans will do it to themselves, all you need do is plant a little seed into their miserable minds" - As each Devil tells their story there is always a point where their feats converge with Frank Black's Investigations.

And these daemons have a point, the best way to get people to fall is to convince them that 1) It's their own idea, 2) Their lives are miserable anyway, so may as well jump 3) Attack them when they are Lonely, or 4) get them to use the very things they tirade about (ie, Commies, Affordable Care, Gun laws, and even Network Censorship boundaries) to destroy themselves with.

Morgan is doing more than just making us laugh at these ridiculous people, he is showing us a cross section of how some people really are. At what point does a person who is obsessed with Serial Killers decide to become one? How often does a person who in in charge of making people kowtow to the rules start trying to enforce every little rule onto people who are outside of their sphere of influence? And he hits co- dependency square on the head as well with the story of the aged stripper (Gabrielle Rose) and the Daemon- So that when she sees him as he actually is, she does not care? It's the relationship she is addicted to, and as the devil finds out, so is he. So he does a cruel thing, thinks about it, tries to undo it, but is too late.

It's in fact too late when the cruel deed is done or the cruel words spoken.

If I were a Daemon this is exactly how I would operate, just let the people mangle themselves thoroughly. And that is pretty much what happens anyway.
