The most original and unique TV show since Twin Peaks
3 December 1998 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

It's a shame that Gun went off the air after only half a season on ABC. Every episode had different stars every week, since the only recurring character (object) was a nickel-plated pistol that changed hands every episode. Actually, I only remember watching three or so of the episodes, but the show starring Daniel Stern is one of my favorite TV episodes ever. Even though that episode was lightly based on a popular short story (I won't say which), there is no way that you'll ever see the ending coming. Gun was never really given a fair shot at being a series since it debuted mid-season and never gained much momentum (much like a great show I remember from roughly the same time on CBS titled Easy Streets). U2 performs the title song.
