Here's DiRT's Thing: Force Majeure

Ladies and gentlemen it's time, once again, for our masked avenger, wrestlemaniac and super powered reviewer DiRT to cast his x-ray vision upon another episode of Millennium and direct his considerable following in our direction in the process. This time it's Force Majeure as DiRT wanted to pay homage to one of his favourite genre stars, Brad Dourif, as we enter the Halloween season. Something wicked this way comes......

Force Majeure is something of a mind bender, with many fans proclaiming confusion as to what it was all about, and it is certainly one which provokes debate. A man in an iron lung, a bevy of blue eyed girls and a planetary alignment heralding the apocalypse: this was Millennium dipping its toes in the waters of Season Two for the first time. Confused as to why the girls killed themselves, wondering if the narrative was peppered with too many ideas but spellbound by Dourif as Hoffman? Well you're not alone but let's have a look what DiRT thought of it. Grab the popcorn guys....

So what do you guys think of the episode and of DiRT's review of it? It was Millennium's first move away from the 'Serial Killer Of The Week' format that it adopted throughout much of season one and many responded positively to a little tinkering with the format. What say you?

As always, every new video we add to Youtube, or is added to Youtube for us, reaches out to a whole new audience and may find a Millennium who never knew of our campaign in the process. Don't forget, keep sending those letters and postcards t
o Mr. Steve Asbell.

As always, lend your considerable support to the man and go visit his own websites and find out what it's all about. Remember, every video made for the this campaign is an indispensable way of reaching out to a potential new campaigner.

Another great episode Dirt - look forward to these each and every week.

A highlight of season one for me. However the iron lung dudes overacting got on my nerves.

Here's Darlene's thing. Force Majeure has always been one of my favorite episodes, and Brad Dourif is such a fantastic actor.
I would like to add that there really was an alignment on 5/5/200. The reason we were not affected by it is because all the planets were aligned on one side of the sun and Earth was on the opposide side, protected from any magnetic pulls. This truth makes Force Majeure even better to me. And may I add, the music in this episode is awesome, and so far unavailable that I know of. Thank you DiRT for agreeing with me.

Thursday wouldn't be the same without Dirt. Loved the episode quite frankly and it was bold of Chip to try something different, mix the formula a little differently, but unlike DiRT I thought it smacked more of Season Three - something a little apocalyptic but with a basis in the real rather than the fantastical.

Dourif was fantastic in the episode but I do agree with Cookyman, ironlungman was grating at times.

Great work dude!

Here's my thing about Iron Lung Guy - try doing any acting while lying down, looking in a mirror, and unable to move your head.

Why did the Iron Lung guy create so many clones? What exactly was he hoping to accomplish? A world filled with nothing but his blonde children, cloning themselves again and again into eternity? Weird episode.

Dirt is just lovely (I hope that wasn't too gushing) I look forward to his reviews every week. A marvellous episode that really broke the format and tried to rise above Carter's 'Millennium by numbers' (if that makes sense, I still think Mr. Johannessen was one of the better writers on the Millennium payroll. Not Wong, Morgan or Perry but almost. "Force Majeure" showed what could have been and what season three could have been had Duggan not ballsed up so spectacularly with the opening episodes.

Great episode, great review. Great! I think that sums it up. I actually find myself agreeing with Dirt every week. Maybe we're clones lol

This man deserves a cult following, good to see he is getting one. Roll on next Thursday!

Sorry, can't watch this at this computer at the hotel in Chicago.

Will comment in detail later next week when I get back from Flashback Weekend.

Cheers from Chicago!

This is one of those episodes that I wouldn't say is one of my favorites but i would watch it more than once. I find the episode creepy and weird but that is cool. Dirt I agree with you about Excorist 3, it was brillant with Brad Dourif and the great George C. Scott based on William Peter Blatty's book Legion I really loved it and way better than Exorcist 2 The Heretic, a terrible movie. The creepiest part in any movie I think was in Exorcist 3 lovingly known as the nurses station scene..absolute brillance. Another great video and I am liking you dirt. ;)
