THE LONE GUNMEN was a spin-off of THE X-FILES.
It featured a trio of characters that were
acquaintances of FBI agent Mulder. They were three nerds
of high intelligence and high paranoia. However, oft times,
their seemingly loony suspicions of government malfeasance
and cover-ups had a basis in cold hard truth.
THE FUTURIST! liked this short lived show and its quirky humor.
It was not always good, but never uninteresting.
Created by Chris Carter, Frank Spotnitz and
two writers that usually wrote some of the best of THE X-FILES
episodes of the series' run - Vince Gilligan and John Shiban.
Both Gilligan and Shiban are currently behind
the wonderful original AMC series BREAKING BAD.
