This X-Files spin-off starred the trio of dweeby conspiracy theorists who helped out Mulder and Scully from time to time. Often serving as comic relief on the original series, Byers, Frohike and Langley (first names were almost never used) similarly took on a hapless, Three Stooges–esque pose on their own show, which did not last very long at all. Creepily, the series premiere, in March 2001, involved a government conspiracy to crash a passenger airliner into the World Trade Center. Four months later, the show was canceled. Adding insult to injury, the Lone Gunmen themselves were killed off almost a year later on an episode of The X-Files.
I find that you missed the point of the series, entirely. It was meant to further the storyline of three -very- popular characters on the X-Files, and did so in a way that many critics and loyal fans enjoyed. The man reason they were cancelled, was the 9/11 coincidence and controversy, which pinned a bad image to the host company,Fox Entertainment. I respect your opinion, but I disagree entirely with your assumption that this is one of "The Worst Spin-Offs"
