Canceled Too Soon #150: 'The Lone Gunmen' (2001)

It's time to bring CHRIS CARTER MONTH to an appropriately abrupt conclusion with THE LONE GUNMEN, one of the most notorious one-season wonders in TV history. The comic relief sidekicks from "The X-Files" got their own TV series, with decent ratings and critical acclaim, with conspiracy-driven storylines that accurately predicted tech companies spying on consumers and - in the show's shocking pilot - the 9/11 attacks.

"The Lone Gunmen" is a show with a huge cult following, and that's why we saved it for a special occasion! Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dive into the show that only lasted one short season, before getting an unexpected and disappointing conclusion on "The X-Files." 

Was this show the classic everyone makes it out to be? Was "The Lone Gunmen" really... CANCELED TOO SOON?
