It's been a one heck of a month preparing for this all out Lance Henriksen talent assault hosted by writer extraordinaire John Kenneth Muir. His work was thorough and exhaustive by the way- job well done. Throughout the month several ideas emerged as a result of a single idea. I began to realize all of my ideas needed to be refocused thematically and ultimately splintered my thoughts into three separate posts with their own themes.
The spirit of Images Of Millennium [Season One] was born from my previous meme-related post Science Fiction Images In Techni-Color. As anyone knows, there are plenty of powerful moments captured in through a single image throughout Season One. My first post, Lance Henriksen: Profile And Measures Of The Millennium Man, is filled with images from Season One, but the focus was on the face of Lance Henriksen.
This post, a complement to the aforementioned essay, focuses on a number of potent symbols and moments that truly captured my visual eye and love for what is a newly discovered love for Millennium. These are images that surround the world of the tremendous character that is Frank Black created by Chris Carter and brought to life by Henriksen. There are plenty of places on the net to find images of Millennium, but I chose to select the images that spoke to me personally. Enjoy the end of days.
When it was all said and done with the Lance Henriksen blogathon over at John Kenneth Muir's Reflections On TV/Film, I realize how intimately I knew the material found in Millennium Season One. The episodes resonate powerfully in my mind visually. Each entry speaks to the quality of this series and the talents that elevated yet another Chris Carter production to classic status next to such unforgettable episode classics that populate the works of series like The X-Files or Star Trek: The Original Series. Think of Lamentation and immediately you'll recall Lucy Butler. Think of The Thin White Line and it will instantly conjure potent images from the production of a younger Frank Black with the FBI and the stunning work of Jeremy Roberts as Richard Hance. Gehenna quickly recalls images involving the wonderful Robin Gammell and so on. They all get under your skin for specific reasons, powerful visual reasons and Lance Henriksen was a big part of why that series lasted three full major seasons.
The entries in Red reflect my favorite episodes of the season.
