Lone Gunmen shot the right amount of great bullets

Lone Gunmen proved to be another great episode especially for a third episode in the first season. Seriously, this show does have the potential to be even better than I realize. My only quibble is that some parts of the story felt a bit too similar ( which I'm not gonna spoil), but everything else is great.

The writing continues to be strong, the characters continue to get even more interesting as their relationships still being engaging, the action sequences are well done, the music score is solid, the new villain Deadshot is great as did the actor's portrayal of said character. Looks like this episode shot the right amount of great bullets. So overall, another great episode. :)
