Incomplete coverage[edit]

It's hinted at in the text of this article that the trio died in the course of the stories (presumably on The X-Files but maybe on their own show; I dunno). This needs to be explicated. It's also hinted at but unexplained that they made some kind of post-mortem comeback. This needs to be covered in a way that makes sense to people who are not X-Philes. And I say that as a former X-Phile (gave up around season 7, if you're wondering). — SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō Contribs. 05:42, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Spoilers[edit]

I am watching this series currently, and this page spoiled the show without warning. Frankly I can't be ****ed to learn the community guidelines because it just gets deleted with a polite copy and pasted warning from some jerk who is more concerned with policy than the reader. I would appreciate if the article was restructured with a warning. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.31.115.232 (talk) 05:31, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

I am very pissed to read in the introduction that they all died, just as I am in the middle of watching season 8.--74.103.131.13 (talk) 02:38, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

If you don't want to know the full plot, don't read the Wikipedia article. This isn't TV Guide, it is an encyclopedia. The fate of the characters is relevant to the article, and Wikipedia explicitly does contain spoilers and does not apologize for it. If you read our article on Romeo and Juliet you will find we mention their deaths as well, right in the first paragraph. If you read our article on The Empire Strikes Back you will find out that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's father. I've undone the removal of the content but I have also moved it further down in the article. Beeblebrox (talk) 21:59, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Category:Aftermath of the September 11 attacks[edit]

@Grapple X: See The_Lone_Gunmen#The_Lone_Gunmen_series, this section includes a coincidence on September 11 attacks and this category is useful for navigation with threads like this. --Rezonansowy (talkcontribs) 17:41, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

The coincidence focuses on the event happening after the series aired an episode with a similar plot, so the category "Aftermath of the September 11 attacks" has no bearing here. It has nothing to do with the aftermath of something that happened afterwards. GRAPPLE X 17:58, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Tense[edit]

Character descriptions using past tense sound really weird. Can this be cleaned up or is there a reason for this? E.g. "[Byers] was a conservative dresser with a neatly trimmed beard, a stark contrast to his grungier comrades." Did he change his dress style towards the end of the show?
