I thought the Lone Gunmen were better in the X-Files than their own show (at least the few that I saw).  It was stuck on at 8pm on friday or something, I never could catch it.

It is a shame they went like they did.

The minute the Lone Gunmen discuss "handing over the reins to the younger generation," and having "screwed the pooch" (failing on their mission), they all had DEAD MEAT stamped on their foreheads. Those are Standard Clichè Hollywood Indicators of Impending Death (SCHIIDs). Retirement is rare, and self-sacrifice is the usually the only redemption when minor characters screw up big on a TV series--especially in the last few eps.

They WAY they go is completely unnecessary; they could've very easily incapacitated the target, pulled the alarm, and quickly left the danger zone before the doors came down. They hung around and died only because the script called for them to.

You are watching FOX.

Show some respect for the honorable dead. In all actuality, only one needed to stay behind. The other two could have gotten out.

Poor Lone Gunmen. I actually liked their show. It wasn't great, but it had potential...there were some funny moments, and it seemed like the writers were having fun with it, as opposed to The X-files where you can feel how tired they are with every line of dialogue.

Sigh...now I can't look at those characters again without thinking of three caskets.

As for the episode itself, it was kinda crappy. It didn't really have any laughs, and the death was kind of lame(and that bastard Mulder doesn't even show up at the funeral. what an asshole). It was good to see Jimmy Bond though. What a sexy man.

Pull the alarm, run to the gates--like the terrorist tried to do--and push the terrorist back inside. Three against one, easy as pie, even for "Garth," and only the bad guy dies.

Nope, sorry. You are watching FOX.

Well, in that case the stupid Wrath of Khan eulegy by Scully at the end makes more sense. You are watching FOX. However...

i used to be so obsessed with X-Files. i was about as bad as Melllvar when it came to X-Files trivia. if you gave me a brief description of any random ep i could give you the name and the season. but when Mulder left the show went to crap, i lost most, but not all interest (old habits die real real hard when your as obsessed as i was)and pretty much stopped watching. i saw the gunman ep and i plan on watching the series finale, but it sucks so bad that X-Files was left to die the pathetic dryed up death that it SO did not deserve. Watching X-Files now is like watching someone die of alien cancer. painful and depressing to the withered desecrated exanguinated bitter end. As far as im concerned they should have ended it after the last ep of last season and just had Mulder and Scully kissing over their baby be the last image we ever saw of them (until the next movie of course)

I figured I might as well bring this up.

I planned on watching the final few episodes, but I never got around to it. Maybe I'll watch the finale tonight, even though I have no idea what's going on.

Watching the final episode right now, an hour and 20 minutes into it it is nothing but a clip show. I am glad I stopped watching the show, M&S lovers? Super Solders? I am very glad I stopped watching the show.

Hell if I know. It was too boring...I kinda spaced out during a few scenes. I watched the entire thing, but I really don't know what happened. All I noticed was 1) time has not treated that mind-reading kid very well 2) is Scully pregnant again? She's looking kinda puffy and 3) sigh, Mulder and Scully are so romantic.

i loved it. yeah the fact that it was mostly a clip show annoyed me somewhat and yeah nothing really has been answered, but Mulder and Scully were very very shippy which makes me very very happy.

the ending wasnt very good...but I thought they answered a ton of questions.


I really hated the fact that scully gave away her baby, that just seemed so wrong.

...and, they left it open for movies.

I haven't seen it but ending with a clip show sounds rather lame, perhaps that is because I hate clip shows.

Oh man, the Seinfeld finale/clipshow was awful. Not only do clipshows suck in general, but they preceded the finale with a clip-filled retrospective. What the fuck, man...what the fuck.

They don't hate each other. Their just not close friends is all. they have to spend so much time together on the set that if they spent extra time together they would get sick of each other. But they get along pretty well. I have the bloopers to the first 6 seasons and they were full out playing together and laughing on some of them.

Well I heard they're really sick of each other... but nevermind.. I wouldn't want to watch it again now, 'cause it's over soon.

X-Files basically died after season 3, just like Millennium died after season 2.

I still can't believe that they are doing another X-Files film. The first one was boring enough. Its only highlight was Terry O'Quinn's appearance in the opening sequence...    wink

Blasphemy. XF hit its peak in season 5, not 3. But even after that... bad XF was still better than any of the other tripe on TV.

The first movie was a mythology episode, tied in with the ongoing back-story of the show, so folk who weren't involved fans had trouble with it.
This new one is a standalone horror piece. Different animal. Personally, I'd prefer another mythology one, but I guess they've gotta make some money.

A mythology story would be a disaster. The whole storyline is a mess now, and nothing can save it. A standalone monster movie, I can handle--although could still be lame if Mulder and Scully are making or raising babies all throughout it. Hopefully they'll just set the movie in 1998.

I mostly agree with FishyJoe... although I think Mulder and Scully should have gotten married, because I want to be Mulder.

The movie is set present day.

Nobody knows how or even if the plot will address the circumstances that M & S were left in at the time of the finale (ie, fugitives on the run).

Xzibit, Amanda Peet, and Billy Connolly all have roles in the film.
