|The Lone Gunmen Die Again!||[Back to Mods In The Key of X or Harsh Realm]|
Hollywood April 22,
2002 (eXoNews) - Once you're canceled, you might as well be dead. That
seems to be what Lone Gunmen series creators Vince Gilligan, John Shiban,
Frank Spotnitz and Chris Carter were telling us in last night's X-Files
episode "Jump The Shark".
A recent Sci Fi Wire poll showed that the LG were easily the most favored choice over The Cigarette Smoking Man and other recurring characters for a return in the new X-Files movie (due in 2004), so who knows what Carter and company really have in mind?
We see the caskets, BTW, but not the corpses - and Jimmy and Yves survive.
According to an
interview in the April issue of the X-Files Official Magazine, LG
sidekicks Zuleikha Robinson (Yves) and Stephen Snedden (Jimmy) were not
all that happy about the script:
Morgan and Wong wrote them into the 1994 Season One episode "E.B.E", where Mulder first introduces them to Scully.
After that, the
trio became legend on the Internet and returned to The X-Files often. They
eventually graduated to their own series last year with co-stars Snedden
and Robinson. Fox aborted the series, of course, after 14 episodes, and
the trio returned to The X-Files. The Lone Gunmen series also inspired a
Dark Horse comic, which is probably a collectors' item considering last
night's final appearance.
R.I.P., boys! Gone, but not forgotten!
