A Powerful Millennium Episode!
5 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode titled "The Mikado" happens to be my number one favorite episode of the entire TV series. First telecast in February 1998 the storyline begins with three teenage boys cruising the internet looking for weird stuff to watch. When they witness what appears to be the murder of a young woman though at first believe that it is scripted and not a real homicide. The script is well written with crisp direction and one of Lance Henricksen's best performances as Frank Black. If you have not seen this one then you are in for a real treat especially if like me you are a fan of this show. And for crime drama buffs this episode was inspired by the real life Zodiac murders of the 1960's in the San Francisco Bay Area. Overall this is one powerful episode and one of the show's very best!
