5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Man's Gun Season One March 16 2011
Format:DVD
This Western series that was billed as a cross between "Gunsmoke" & "The Twilight Zone" when it orignally appeared on Showtime in the late 1990's has finally been released on DVD & it has been worth the wait! Each episode revolves around the story of a cursed gun that brings misery to whoever possesses it. Ominously narrated by Kris Kristofferson, each episode is a different story with a completely different cast, the gun being the only thing central to each episode.

Alliance (Universal) has done a magnificent job of presenting crystal quality of the episodes on each disk. In season one you get every episode that appeared in the series INCLUDING the first three episodes (The Great McDonagle, Fool's Gold & My Brother's Keeper) which were originally shown on Showtime before Dead Man's Gun was made into a series and NOT usually seen in the reruns on TV.

This Western series is a little off the usual path of westerns but the excellent writing & suspense places it a firm notch above the norm. It's a shame that only 44 episodes of this series were made, but all 44 were quite well done.

If you like westerns, you'll like this!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great western show March 12 2011
Format:DVD
I heard about this show recently, and was completely surprised and excited to see season 1 at HMV a week after the long awaited DVD release. I figured since it seems to be a fairly unknown show they wouldn't have it, but they did. I've only watched 7 out of the 22 episodes so far, but each is very good and memorable. It's really cool to see the different stories unfold, but what makes it even better is each episode isn't a direct continuation of who had the gun last, so I often imagine and wonder where it could have been between people. This show completely surprised me, it has quality acting and quality stories. I expected something cheesy, but this show is currently one of my favourites. If you're a fan of westerns, pick it up for sure, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Man's Gun Aug. 31 2011
By Liz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The writing on this is superb. The twists of the story are innovative, and you never know if the main charactor or the gun will win in the end. The number of big name stars in this series are many. The only thing that they all share, is this absolutely gorgeous gun that appears to be a special Army Colt that gets passed from person to person. The gun is pure evil. So, does evil win, or does good triumph over evil? I wish they had made way more than the episodes they did. isnt' that always the way with the good stuff?

5.0 out of 5 stars I like it a lot! Sept. 3 2012
By Martina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I recently started to record this show, wish I had done it earlier, I loved it! It is like a western Twilight Zone/
The Dark Side! I recently watched the episode called: The Ripper, OMG, I was so intrigued to know who the killer really was, but the ending really surprised me! I plan on ordering seasons one/two, since most shows on the local networks suck so bad! Keep them coming Mr. Winkler, you have a hit on your hands!

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Imposter," part of the series, is delightful March 8 2011
By Israel Drazin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"The Imposter" is an easy to view, fun film about a meek, naïve, and somewhat foolish peddler, who frightens easily, who finds a dead man and his horse outside of town in the Old West. The horse had apparently bolted when it saw or heard a rattlesnake, and the man fell off and broke his neck. The man was carrying a letter that offered him a job for $25 a month, much more money than the peddler ever made. There is no indication what the job is. The man was wearing a beautiful gun. The peddler decides to take his place. He arrives in town saying he is the hired man and finds out that he, a meek and oft-frightened man, has been hired as the town marshal.

Viewers will enjoy seeing how he handles his job. He faces gun fighters and brawlers. He has dealings with a prostitute and naively thinks she is a "nice" woman, and she turns out to be nice. His deputy forces people to pay protection money and he needs to deal with this. He discovers that the casino owner is rigging his tables. He needs to stop a bank robber who is racing out of town and has to deal with his deputy and the casino owner who try to ambush and kill him. All this and he can't shoot the dead man's fancy gun.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow great concept and delivery May 30 2013
By peter richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Being a western buff from childhood and a regular cowboy action shooter with real guns ,I was thrilled to discover Dead Man's Gun.
This has certainly proved an unusual concept with only the gun as a connection to each episode and a variety of temporary owners who attach themselves to it and discover there are consequences that will change their lives -for the good or the bad results.
I was pleased that each episode is for the hour rather than thirty minutes so you can get involved with all characters.
I got excited to find ,too ,that a second season is available and now await it's arrival. Life is good. Having many gun books I am trying to ascertain what model the gun is. Friend and I are going for a Remington and a further search may reveal the truth.
Am interested to know as well how each episode can enfold with different presentations as well as suburb actors.
Part of the fun is identifying from their early movies and the movies that followed the making of this television western/mystery. Thanks heaps for entertaining myself and family. Pete R.
