  • This episode is basically one long chase scene. It has some great camera angles and it keeps surprising you. The bad guy looks alternately evil and perhaps a bit too old for all the running. Still, it is engrossing.

    It was midnight and I was about to go to sleep when this came on. It was so simple and efficient in its story-telling that I had to stay up and watch the whole thing. The premise is about as simple as you can get. A man is given a whole bunch of money to do one thing, "Kill Peter Gunn" It is not long before the man is sitting in the backseat of Gunn's car and ordering him to drive to a deserted spot to be killed. They end up at a deserted mine and from that point on the show is about 15 minutes of pure chase. Will the laconic Gunn escape the laconic killer?
