[show]The show's title refers to the Lone Gunman Theory concerning JFK's assassination in 1963. It is the finding put forth by the Warren Comission that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assination. Since this is the most widely held belief about JFK's shooting, it is not the belief of most conspiracy theorists. The fact that the main characters of this show pluralize the name is something of a satire against the idea of there being only one gunman.
- In the pilot episode, which aired in March 2001, there is a hijacked plane that is being targeted at the World Trade Center; six months before the September 11 attacks occurred.
