TV Shows - Lone Gunmen, The

The Lone Gunmen was a television show created by Chris Carter and broadcast on FOX. It was a spin off of Carter's popular long running television series The X-Files, starring several of the show's characters. The series revolved around the three characters of The Lone Gunmen; Melvin Frohike, John Fitzgerald Byers and Richard Langly, a group of "geeky" investigators who ran a conspiracy theory magazine. They had often helped FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files. The plot of the March 4, 2001 pilot episode of the series depicts a secret U.S. government agency plotting to hijack a domestic commercial Boeing 727 originally heading for Boston from New York City but diverted it to crash into the World Trade Center via remote control for the purpose of increasing the military defense budget and blaming the attack on foreign "tin-pot dictators" who are "begging to be smart-bombed."

Lone Gunmen, The Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 I would say the Lone Gunmen sucked from the start. While the trio were interesting characters the problem was the show was trying to ride on the coattails of a successful show. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on September 27, 2014, 1:16 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 That was my main problem with the show, too. It just reeked of studio interference. "Nobody's gonna wanna watch three geeks; add a babe and a hunk!" I watched most of the episodes and those two characters really dragged things down. The show flopped and was cancelled and then Chris Carter, like a spoiled brat, decided to kill off the Lone Gunmen in an X-Files episode to punish the fans for not watching the show. The episode was even named Jump the Shark. As for the 9/11 parallels, I can't explain it. It's the weirdest, most bizarre coincidence that I've ever experienced. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 3, 2013, 10:41 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I always thought that the Lone Gunmen should have their own show. But the show sucked. They add a "beautiful woman" and "hunk" to the cast, why? The writing was horrible. -- Submitted By: (Dunestrider) on August 2, 2013, 8:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
