  • Season Two of Millennium is brilliant; The Time is Now is the capstone achievement of the Morgan-Wong run.

    While brilliant first season episodes Lamentation and Powers, Principalities, Thrones, and Dominions gave us a glimpse of what Millennium could be, the Morgan/Wong-produced episodes of season two are truly special. The Time is Now is their wrenching culmination. The sum effect is similar to that of Dale Cooper smashing his face against the mirror in the final episode of Twin Peaks… only the sense of horror and loss permeates the entirety of The Time is Now. There are many brilliant episodes of The X-Files and Morgan and Wong wrote quite a few of them… but none, not even Beyond the Sea, or One Breath, or Home, take us to the place The Time is Now does
