The Sept. 11 Parallel "Nobody Noticed"

Post by Justen Tyme » 06-25-2003 10:44 AM

We know the ratings for Fox's short-lived X-Files spinoff The Lone Gunman were bad, but this is ridiculous. Six months before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — March 4, 2001, to be exact — Gunmen premiered with an episode featuring a terrorist plot to fly a commercial airliner into the World Trade Center. The climactic sequence actually shows the plane heading into one of the Twin Towers, but at the last minute, it's pulled upward and just misses the building.

See, now this is the kind of thing that pisses me off!

The Lone Gunmen was a spinoff of Fox's most successful show ... so what do they do ... support it ... get behind it? Nahhh ... they don't even remember that X-Files was well into the THIRD SEASON before the ratings were decent - adn rising quickly.

So, they put TLG on at all kinds of weird hours ... change the timeslot at random ... and it "tanks"

I loved what I saw of this show ... I am hoping it shows up on Trio Network's "Brilliant But Cancelled".

Never saw that episode ... it was probably buried in the schedule someplace weird.

Pssst...I heard from an anonymous source that Byers, Frohike and Langly are in deep hiding as we speak...

I loved it when those guys appeared on the X-Files but their show was pretty weak. I agree that Fox did not support the show however and never let it grow and find it's audience base. The same thing happened to Firefly. An excellent show that got zero support. Makes me want to stop watching TV altogether. You just start getting into a show and then they pull the plug! Damn networks...

Hey Riddick! Thanks for the updated link that surprisingly still works right seven and a half years after your last post! :o

It IS a very ironic parallel! :shock:
