Reviews

All 13 episodes from the popular US sci-fi series created by Chris Carter ('The X Files'). The computer-hacking, conspiracy-exposing Lone Gunmen are always looking for that next big government cover-up that would bring their newsletter, 'The Lone Gunman', national attention. Whether in their secret underground office or in the back of their old VW bus, this bumbling and often socially inept trio is routinely derided by their peers. Now with a young, idealistic new member and a mysterious exotic female who is always one step ahead of them, the Lone Gunmen are double determined to protect millions of Americans by exposing truths that some would rather keep hidden. Episodes comprise: 'Pilot', 'Bond, Jimmy Bond', 'Eine Kleine Frohike', 'Like Water For Octane', 'Three Men And A Smoking Diaper', 'Madam, I'm Adam', 'Planet Of The Frohikes: A Short History Of My Demeaning Captivity', 'Maximum Byers', 'Diagnosis: Jimmy', 'Tango De Los Pistoleros', 'The Lying Game', 'All About Yves' and 'The Cap'n Toby Show'.

As a huge fan of The X-Files, I decided to watch the whole series straight through after picking up all nine seasons in the big box set and run Millennium and The Lone Gunmen alongside at the correct times. I'd not seen either sister/tie-in show properly and found Millennium season one terrific before crashing and burning with season two. There had been a couple of great X-Files episodes featuring the Gunmen as leads during show's run, one without Mulder and one without Scully, which amply demonstrated the potential for a Gunmen show.

So what went wrong? I think somewhere along the way the creative team for the Gunmen series (not the actual characters' creators Glen Morgan and James Wong) misunderstood what makes the characters work. From my point of view, these guys have an oddball, clown-like image, but they are ***very*** competent at what they do. That's why Mulder, Scully and their successors use them. I can understand the need to introduce the character of Eve to avoid the show being a complete sausage-fest, but, all too often, Yves is used to make the boys look stupid. In the series, especially after Jimmy Bond is introduced, the Gunmen are turned into slapstick clowns, barely competent to unlock a door, let alone hack a database.

For all the thrills of the pilot episode, the rest of the series is a letdown, before just hinting at improving at the end. Frankly, while watching the show alongside seaon eight of The X-Files, it became a bit of a 'Ho hum! I'd rather stick with the X-Files!' situation.

It's like meeting a really amazing girl once in a while and really liking her company, but after starting to date her, realising that she's not nearly as interesting as she seemed to be. The show's a missed opportunity, but if you're a big X-Files fan like me, it's absolutely worth having for a few more hours in the quirky, paranoid universe of Chris Carter.

Their missions aren't impossible...they just make them look that way.
Sometimes you wonder just what a show has to do to last more than one season. I don't know who the people behind TLG ticked off to get the show cancelled but whatever happened it cost us fans dearly.
The success of the lone gunmen characters in the X-Files suggested that a spin off would be a sure thing and ratings wise it was right up their with the early seasons of the X-Files..so ratings can't have been the reason to cut it short.
For those that don't know The Lone Gunmen were recurring characters from the X-Files, socially inept paranoid geeky computer hackers on a mission to uncover the truth and publish it in their paper. Along the way they pick up a lumpy intern and a femme fatale who may or may not be on their side...you can keep your Dark Angel rip off.
Yeah I know it sounds bad but the show was funny, weird and at times thought provoking, as already mentioned the pilot episode about terrorists crashing a plane in the WTC 6 months before it happened is downright creepy.
My main complaint is how things end..not because it ends but there are far too many plot holes to be convincing, you'll see what I mean.

this was a clever x files spin off that can be quite funny at times.most x files fans will like it.the gunmen do their investigative reporting aided and at times misled by eve ,who is a clever well resourced dare i say a lara croft like babe. Jimmy bond joins them as a 4th gunman who was initially rejected by the other 3 gunmen. Its only 13 episodes long and you will notice some familiar faces from the x files. Walter skinner in one episode but not in a major way to steal the spotlight also mulder briefly appears in one episode.the last episode is actually a cliffhanger but chris carter put the x files episode jump the shark to piece the spin off season together as a kind of 14th episode. Worth getting for your collection.

I'm so happy this long-forgotten part of the "X Files" saga is available on DVD now. Chris Carter's second spin-off (after "Millennium") is directly based on charters from the long-running mystery show. However, it is more of a parody of the agent thriller genre (007 et al) than a serious contribution. This doesn't make the "Lone Gunmen" a bad show. On the contrary: it is very very funny and it is great to see three beloved TV characters again. The Lone Gunmen had numerous guest appearances on "The X Files". Their own short series is different as far as themes are concerned.
An interesting fact needs to be added here: the series was shot pre 9/11 but in the pilot episode, the Gunmen have to stop terrorists to crash a plan into the WTC. Thus, the episode wasn't broadcast at first after 9/11. It is really incredible to see such a coincidence as part of a TV show...
All X Philes and Chris Carter fans should really see this series!

I loved it, all the way through. Shame they only made one season of it. They were a highlight of the X-Files for me, as for many other fans, and they don't disappoint here. Buy it!

"The Lone Gunmen - The Complete Series [DVD]", Melvin Frohike, John Fitzgerald Byers and Richard Langly, a group of investigators who ran a conspiracy theory magazine on "The X-Files", deserved their spin-off series. Sadly, the plug was pulled after 13 episodes, all of which are entertaining and great fun.

Product values are never less than top notch, and the commentaries on the DVDs are both useful and indicitative of the love the cast and crew felt for the show and its characters. "The X-Files" wrap up episode is included on this release. DVD quality in respect of both picture and sound was faultless, 10/10, in fact. Highly recommended for all descerning viewers.
