TV on DVD Feb 15, 2011: Is that a Dead Man’s Gun in your hands? From HELL?

Dead Man’s Gun: Season 1
Cursed gun, forged in HELL (of course), brings trouble to whoever finds it in this 1997-99 western anthology series, narrated by Kris Kristofferson and exec produced by Henry Winkler.
Can’t remember where I saw it (Showcase, my guess), but I do recall thoroughly enjoying a half a dozen or so episodes of the series, shot in B.C. but originally broadcast in the U.S. on Showtime. Each episode begins with that week’s guest star finding or being handed the gun and ending up … well the gun was forged, shall I remind you, in HELL. Justice – and injustice – is served. The storytelling is occasionally over the top, but that’s part of the dramatic-music charm. Guest stars in Season 1 include: Sarah Chalke, Adam Beach, Ed Asner, Gary Cole, Stephen Lang, Kenneth Welsh, Matt Craven and bigger stars in Season 2, which is out March 15. And these two releases are for Canada only. Ha!

Here are a handful more TV on DVD releases, new this week.
Dr. Who a Christmas Carol
Spin City: Season 4
Murphy’s Law: Series 3
Leverage: Season 1
The Rich Little Show: The Complete Series

And note: Twilight Zone: Season 3 on Blu-ray is out in the U.S. this week, but not until March 1 in Canada.
