Goofs

In the last scene, where it counts down to the year 2000, you can see a sliver of the clock in one scene and it reads 51, 52 seconds. In the next shot, a close-up of the screen, the seconds are at 43. See more »

Quotes

Scully: Mulder, these people, even when they were alive, mangled biblical prophecy to the extent that it's unrecognisable. The year 2000 is just their artificial deadline, and besides 2001 is actually the start of the new millennium.
Mulder: Nobody likes a math geek, Scully.

Frank Black's Monkey gone to Heaven
1 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved MillenniuM, it was a great show. I watched every episode of it. And I was very disappointed by Fox' treatment of the series. Not only Musical Producers, but they forced changes that Carter never should have allowed. In a sense, they no longer TRUSTED Carter to create quality Television like he had been doing for the last seven years with this, The X-Files.

And so part of Carter's Revenge was to end MillenniuM within an X-files episode. I did not like the non-resolution ending of the series, Fox held up announcing cancellation until the day the episode was broadcast.

Not giving Carter a chance to wrap it up.

So, in this X-File, Carter annihilates The MillenniuM Group.

It may be me, but I do not think Carter wanted to make The MillenniuM Group the heavies of MillenniuM - The actual group on which The MillenniuM group was based, the Academy Group, seems like it does a lot of good and being able to reach in where FBI may be bound by Law and Jurisdiction.

And so, what occurs in this special episode of The X-Files, Carter destroys the ERSATZ MillenniuM Group that was created during the time he was absent from Exec Producing MillenniuM.

Carter totally obliterates the last remnants of the Group - Who had gone Off Radar by this time. We don't know what happened to Black's FBI partner who had gone to the Group - And we do not know what happened to the Character played by Terry O'Quinn - Frank Black's former Boss in The Millennium Group. But we can safely watch this episode and not have to worry about those people.

Instead, we can watch Mulder and he digs into The X-File dropped in his lap - Which has to do with odd activity from The Group, and the suspicion of some kind of misrepresentation of The Bible End Times prophecies being carried out by the last five "Members" of the Group - Four of which happen to be Dead.

In relating this episode to MillenniuM, one has to remember this is an X-File, not a case Frank Black would be working on. So the overall story is simplified, because most of the story regarding MillenniuM Group was told in MillenniuM.

This episode, ends the MillenniuM Group but more importantly wraps up Frank Black's story. And gives frank a much-needed break from his MillenniuM-Group induced problems.

This episode is very much Carter's revenge to Fox on their treatment of his MillenniuM project. You can feel Carter stabbing it to them in every scene.

It does not really matter, that the world "Didn't End" at the end of the Episode, It didn't end that year, and may not end at the end of 2012, as The X-Files predicted in it's very last Episode.

What does matter is Mulder working with Black, and Black doing his very last work as a kind of Saviour - He does save Mulder at the end. Even though it is doubtful that the actual world would have ended - Mulder WAS in real trouble - And, it probably would not have been very good to have four Apocolpse-Zombies roaming about, would it?
