Video Friday: The Lone Gunmen

It’s appropriate that this early cancellation comes with a consipracy theory. The pilot episode of The Lone Gunmen, which spun off from The X-Files, detailed the Gunmen discovering a conspiracy to hijack an airplane out of Logan Airport and crash it into the World Trade Center. Sound familiar? It aired in January 2001. So when Condolezza Rice was testifying that “nobody could have anticipated” the World Trade Center attack, I was yelling at the television. Over all, it’s a funnier show than X-Files and it never gets to develop the complicated mythology so if The X-Files intrugued you, but was too heavy, this might be your ticket. Too bad it never went past one season. Avaliable on Amazon.
