The Millennium Group invite an ex FBI profiler who has the ability to sight the evil of the mind of serial killers. The Millennium Group is an ancient group of people with special abilities to see good and evil.
Spin-off of The X-Files featuring the trio of computer-hacking conspiracy geeks popularly known as The Lone Gunmen. Never ones to stray far from the center of corporate and government intrigue, the threesome of John Byers, Melvin Frohike, and Richard Langly play like a misguided Mission Impossible team, embarking on a series of comic adventures that simultaneously highlight their genius and ineptitude. While their newfound independence inspires them to investigate even the most shadowy of conspiracies, their social skills remain stagnant, which only makes their lives more difficult when they learn their chief competitor in the "information business" is the brilliant and beautiful Yves Adele Harlow. Perpetually short of funds to publish The Lone Gunmen newspaper, Byers, Frohike and Langly begrudgingly take on Jimmy Bond as an unlikely benefactor who bankrolls their missions and joins them in their investigations to uncover the truth.

The show's title refers to the Lone Gunman Theory concerning JFK's assassination in 1963. It is the finding put forth by the Warren Commission that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. According to a 2013 Gallup poll, sixty one per cent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy (down from eighty one per cent in 2000), while only 30 believe otherwise. The fact that the main characters of this show pluralize the name is something of a satire against the idea of there being only one gunman. See more »
The core of the show was a few blokes, and a woman bodge their way through a different story every week, and despite themselves solve the story.
Nothing to mentally strenuous, but still entertaining. Its hard to combine action, comedy and a plot, but the creators of TLG have managed it. And even better than that not gone the teen/buffy route either.
But I go back to my first line... Why was it canceled? Its wasnt low quality, it was well written, shot, etc, etc, just like its stable mate The X-Files.
Please someone pick the franchise up!!!!!!
