The series lasted a mere 13 episodes, and in retrospect probably plays better now than it did in the spring of 2001 when the peak years of The X-Files were still fresh in the memory. Thanks to direction and writing by the same creative talent and music by Mark Snow, The Lone Gunmen has the feel of Chris Carter's signature series, though without the impenetrable mythology and the sexual tension (Robinson is beautiful, but let's be serious). The episodes are generally stand-alone affairs reflecting the goofy humor that made the trio part of the comic relief in The X-Files. Light-hearted topics include a blind football team and a super-intelligent chimpanzee, but the closing episode dealt with the familiar themes of alien abduction and government cover-ups (a thread that after the series' cancellation had to be concluded in an episode of The X-Files, which is also included in this set). And particularly chilling is the pilot: aired six months before 9/11, it deals with an attempt to fly an airplane into the World Trade Center. The Lone Gunmen couldn't match the brilliant inspiration of The X-Files (few shows could), but for fans it might just be the next best thing. --David Horiuchi
The show was very funny and informative.
Like most of his post X-Files series (excluding Millenium) this was canceled into it's first season but the episodes that are here are very good.
I recommend this show for anyone who liked the X-Files, certainly, but anyone who appreciates good writing and great production values.
Was a great but short lived series, and would have run out of plots, but linked well with X Files. Funny. Look for the plot months prior to 9/11.Published 14 days ago by Bob Galler
If you have the X-files, you need this to go with your collection. This short lived spin off, extends the motto "I Want To Believe". 13 episodes, plus extras. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Roger
Loved these guys, was devastated they were killed off....which I will never forgive Carter for. But as they say in Scifi, no one really dies I suppose.Published 22 days ago by xfiler93
weak, trite, boring---ditto the 3 actors---ditto the writing...2 episodes was all I could take...Published 29 days ago by VALENWORTH
Chilling, considering Episode 1 aired in March of 2001, this series is related to the X-Files. It does not disappoint.Published 1 month ago by Lynn B
Buy it for the Pilot alone. The airliner flying towards the Twin Towers was prophetic and terrifying. The rest of the series is comedic.Published 1 month ago by Jordan Hofer
