jose chung's doomsday defense

For example, you’re familiar with the films of Bobby Wingood? Bobby used to be an out–of–work actor – high on drugs, beating up paparazzi because they wouldn’t take his picture. Then he found Selfosophy. Learned how to reject rage and anger, and focus on more meaningful emotions. Now he’s rich and famous and dating high–price fashion models. In fact, many of Hollywood’s elite are Selfosophists, so I ask you: how could a religious order with ties to Hollywood be involved in anything immoral?

Millennium, 2.09 “Jose Chung’s ‘Doomsday Defense’”

I don’t know if I can really recommend Millennium – at least, not to someone who a) did not experience consciously the full force of the hype leading up to Y2K and b) does not already appreciate the things Chris Carter does (and even then it’s still a hard sell, which is why only three seasons of it happened). It’s a weird, uneven, oft-overdramatic show that both was not as good as it should have been and was way better than it had any right to be.

However, the second season is for the most part off-the-hook glorious, Jose Chung’s Doomsday Defense may be the finest hour of television ever produced, the ten minutes of ‘The Time is Now’ set to Patty Smith’s 'Land’ are the ballsiest thing I have ever seen done on a small screen, and basically nothing will ever convince me any of these things are untrue.
