Gris Gris: You can have my isolation; you can have the hate that it brings

This morning, Jane Considine, blogger at Gris Gris, returns for her third fascinating post regarding the Chris Carter series Millennium

Today, she reviews the first-season classic, "The Thin White Line."  In "You can have my isolation; you can have the hate it brings," Jane takes a memorable look at how law enforcement deals with the darkness it faces on a regular basis.

Sometimes, we all have to walk the dark path. You have to walk alongside and in the dark to understand and make peace with it. The third episode of "Millennium" that really struck me during my revisitng of the series is "The Thin White Line". Frank Black walks a very dark path in this one, a path that has to do with his regrets and personal convictions, his whole belief system. And as dark as it is, it's ultimately uplifting.

Thank you, Jane, for this submission!


  1. I thought Jane did a splendid job of captururing the mood and tension of some of the critical scenes here in one of my favorites from Season One.

    Tying it all to a personal connection is always fascinating.

    Very well done.

  2. Hi SFF:

    I totally agree with you, Jane did a great job here. I like her writing modus operandi, which seems to be to tie narrative details to personal/real life experiences. I think that's fascinating as well.

    And I'm looking forward to seeing your article here within the hour!


  3. I second SFF! Very well done.
