This series is currently being rerun on the Trio network as part of their "Brilliant, but Cancelled" theme. I have no idea on what planet this series is considered "brilliant", but it was most definitely "cancelled". They are running a show on this theme, plus their show "Perfect Pitch" which attempts to describe the best way to pitch a new series and have it be made into a pilot. I'm guessing that "Gun" connects to this theme in that it had the perfect pitch -- "It's 'Twilight Zone' meets 'The Outer Limits' -- but wait, they are all linked by the same gun!" I've seen this theme so many times, most notably in that movie (whose name escapes me) where they follow the same twenty dollar bill around to different owners. The links to that twenty dollar bill were much more plausible than the links to this gun. I would only recommend watching this show if a) you are bored or b) you happen to like one of the guest stars, of which there are plenty. The episode with Kirsten Dunst and Carrie Fisher was my favorite, but I probably could have found better use of an hour of my time.
