All things considered, [[TheDevilIsALoser these demons are actually pretty lame]].

* ParentalIncest: The episode "The Well-Worn Lock" features Karen Black in her job as a social worker having to deal with a domestic abuse situation. The father had already sexually abused one of his daughters and impregnated her, but she carried the child to term and continued to live with her parents because she had nowhere else to go. When she starts seeing signs that he's going to repeat it with his younger daughter/granddaughter, she finally goes to the authorities. Even then it's a long and arduous process to prove his guilt and get him convicted.

* ShoutOut:
** In "Jose Chung's ''Doomsday Defense''", the hospital is named after ''Series/TheXFiles'' producer Frank Spotnitz, and Creator/DavidDuchovny appears on movie posters as actor Bobby Wingood.
** In "Somehow, Satan Got Behind Me", a devil appears as a red CGI dancing baby, referencing the dancing baby meme from ''Series/AllyMcBeal'' that became an early Internet meme.

''Millennium'' was a FOX show created by Creator/ChrisCarter, best known for ''Series/TheXFiles''. Lasting three seasons, 1996-1999, it starred Lance Henriksen as ex-FBI agent Frank Black, a consultant to various police forces investigating violent crimes with the mysterious Millennium Group. The show was [[ReTool retooled]] significantly each season--the executive producers of the show changed each season. Throughout the series' run, however, the overall tone remained dark and disturbing, which did not appeal to mainstream television viewers, but earned the respect of a devoted group of fans.

* ADayInTheLimelight: "The Well-Worn Lock" focuses on Frank Black's wife Catherine, usually a supporting character, in her job as a social worker. It's also reminiscent of a VerySpecialEpisode, as instead of a deranged SerialKiller or an AncientConspiracy, it deals with domestic violence by a father who sexually abuses his daughters.
