The Ball Gag Hall of Fame (part 2)

The Ball Gag Hall of Fame (part 2)

Last week was the feature films. This week, our spotlight's on the best scenes from the small screen.

Quick: who was the first damsel in distress to appear ball-gagged in a mainstream TV episode? We're pretty sure it was Michelle Bronson in the 1992 Tales from the Crypt episode "King of the Road." We've included that scene here—though mainly for its historical value, since the two shots in question lasted less than four seconds total.

In the intervening 29 years, of course, television series have given us plenty of longer, better ball-gag scenes to rival the movie scenes that we highlighted last week. We've assembled 20 of the best ones here for your enjoyment. As always, if you can't find your favorite in our collection, let us know and we'll see what we can do!
