Although "Dead Man's Gun" doesn't have the most brilliant writing, or big-name actors in most of the episodes (except for the main character), I somehow still really like this show. The outside scenes were done in British Columbia, but fit well as different locals in the Old West. It's just a simple show that doesn't need special effects, actresses with fake teeth and other fake parts (JoBeth Williams was in one of the episodes), and expletive language/distracting sex scenes. It's low-key and genuine. Each episode has a twist, and the gun-ownership always has a moral - a lesson is learned.
I like to watch the show on a Friday night, maybe with beer and tacos, and just enjoy its straightforward nature and authentic-looking sets and costumes. One of my favorite episodes stars Stephen Lang (Ike Clanton in "Tombstone") as a gambler who learns the lesson of the Dead Man's Gun before it's too late.
