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 ... See full summary »
A marine biologist, an insurance salesman and a teen-aged boy find their lives fundamentally changed by the emergence of a new, and often dangerous, species of sea life, while government agents work to keep the affair under wraps.
If you know something about biotechnology and chemistry etc., try to figure out what is wrong with the plots. An old master's degree in biochemistry is not always enough to find those out, and maybe some are quite possible. In addition, the personal issues in the series are interesting also from the scientific point of view. Sadly, missed the first episodes of season two, as the series airs on a minor channel here, luckily a DVD-set should become available.
The most upsetting and nerve-wrecking currently airing TV-series for me, some episodes have even made me lose my sleep. Other episodes have kept me thinking for a couple of days after seeing them. I highly recommend this series to anyone thinking about scientific career or to someone already in a one.
