Maybe 13 is a Lucky number , but it is NOT acceptable for the Fans of this Beloved series, that stressed Intelligence over Violence, Compassion over Hate, and Love over Vulgarity, in my opinion , these are the Strengths of "The Lone Gunmen", and maybe it will return....?
Maybe , these are not forgotten values, that play across humanity, and not for just the few. When Chris Carter and the Gang developed these characters by Glen Morgan and James Wong, maybe they were tapping into the subconscious, about the way they felt the world could or should be ?
Question everything ? Question Authority ? Sounds good to me !!!
Beyers(Bruce Harwood),Langly(Dean Haglund), and Frohicke(Tom Braidwood) ,all computer or electronics Wizards, form the perfect trio of misfits, that aside from some windmills, try to uncover the truth, not just their truth ! In 13 sculpted episodes, we live their adventures into the world of spies,dirty politicos,aliens, and elaborate schemes that do not fit conventional wisdom !!!
Publishing an underground paper ,"The Lone Gunman", Frohicke, Beyers, and Langley go out into the world to make it a better place for humanity , by confronting the unusual , and uncovering the unknown !!!
Aided by newcomers Jimmy Bond (Stephen Snedden) and the Lovely, Yves Adele Harlow(Zuleikha Robinson), Zuleikha means "Beautiful One", go figure, they add the combo of comic relief and direction , which creates depth and more story line !
If Mulder can come back from the dead, why NOT "The Lone Gunmen", someone ought to buy the rights, and show 20th Century Fox, that there IS a market out there gents, a GLOBAL Market !!!
Look at "Aquamarine", duh ???
"Jump The Shark" does NOT clean up the story line, and leaves the viewer unsatisfied, and left with the crappy line thought "Life is Not Fair", BULLSH....T!!!
Morris Fletcher makes a joke out of the Lone Gunmen, some ending....
Contrary to some popular belief, these characters are NOT the 3 Stooges with keyboards !!!
Actually, it betrays the philosophy of the creators who opt out for the cop-out ending, not the will of the people, but Hey, it is ONLY "Tee-Vee" ... Anyway, for the faithful, do not give up the Good Fight, miracles do happen,and maybe , they will make a movie to at least give the Actors and Fans a just Victory !!! Stay Tuned True Believers !!!
A Great Cast, and Creative ,Talented Producers !!!
Mark Snow should have received an Emmy Nomination and an Emmy for his input in the Music Dept. which was Fantastic !!!
Terrific Production Values !!!
A TV Show for the Ages, better than the X-Files, subjective !!!
I'd buy the show , but I don't think I have that much pull with Hollywood, which only sees dollars, not Sense.....
But , we have 9 Seasons of " CHARMED " on DVD that will play FOREVER ! WOW , Now that's Quality Viewing !!!
Where are you Max Shulman when I need you....
One word to remember, "SKEEZAXE".....
