Did You Know?


When breaching the high school, Blane uses a suppressor on his pistol to eliminate the terrorist in the hallway. He then removes the suppressor before assaulting the library. The pistol does not have an extended threaded barrel, meaning there is no way to attach a suppressor. The way Blane removes the suppressor would suggest it was screwed into the rifling of the barrel itself, but this would cause the bullet to lodge either in the barrel or the suppressor. See more »


Jonas Blane: Well, how about that? The bullets go where you aim the gun.

HMMMMM Did they foresee the Virginia Tech Shooting
20 April 2007 | by biggs-27See all my reviews

Very interesting, this is the third TV show that had a show on a tragic event before it happened. The Lone Gunmen was a TV show which in its pilot episode the story line was a plane was going to crash into the World Trade Center six months prior to the actual event. Then FX the same channel as the Lone Gunmen had a movie called Oil Storm. Oil Storm was aired two months prior to Hurricane Katrina and it was about a hurricane that hit New Orleans on Labor Day weekend and gas prices sky rocketed. In real life a hurricane hit New Orleans a week after Labor Day weekend and gas prices sky rocketed. I don't know if that means anything, but it is very interesting that they would be able to foresee 3 of the biggest events in the last decade prior to it happening.
