Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The final season (1968-69) of this beloved sci-fi/western/mystery series finds James T. West (Robert Conrad) and Artemus Gordon (Ross Martin) up to their heroic necks in evil geniuses and steadfastly devoted to keeping post-Civil War America safe. Chugging across the country in their custom rail car, the Wanderer 1, West and Gordon battle all manner of criminal masterminds bent on imperiling the nation or just plain making a tidy illicit profit. Fans of vintage TV will find many familiar faces here, such as: future Mary Tyler Moore anchor dork Ted Knight as a raving preacher in "The Night of the Kraken"; singer-songwriter Jackie DeShannon in "The Night of the Janus"; Jackie "Uncle Fester" Coogan in the midseason two-parter "The Night of the Winged Terror"; and Gilligan's Island denizens Jim Backus and Alan Hale Jr., who figure prominently in "The Night of the Sabatini Death." Michael Dunn returns for his final series turn as Dr. Miguelito Loveless in "The Night of Miguelito's Revenge." Fans will especially appreciate "The Night of the Fugitives," and not just because of the guest turns by veteran heavy Simon Oakland and muscleman Mickey Hargitay (Mariska's dad). This episode, the season's seventh, was actually the last episode shot during the third season, as Conrad suffered a concussion when a jump-and-swing-from-a-chandelier shot turned into a fall-from-the-balcony shot, and production shut down while he recovered. This six-disc set collects all 24 episodes of the final season, an action-packed throwback to the glory days of tough-guy TV.
Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
One of the most intriguing TV spin-offs of the 1960s spy craze, The Wild Wild West was a genre-bending espionage-western starring Robert Conrad in his signature role as West -- James West, the frontier 007. With his partner, master of disguise Artemus Gordon Ross Martin -- the "Q" to West's Bond -- he foils diabolical plots and fights the bad guys. One nemesis is the diminutive Dr. Miguelito Loveless Michael Dunn, who makes a memorable first impression in "The Night the Wizard Shook the Earth." And that's Richard Kiel, more popularly known as Jaws in The Spy Who Loved Me, as Loveless's menacing, mute henchman, Voltaire. Like The Avengers, The Wild Wild West could get downright bizarre, such as in "Night of the Puppeteer," in which West defends himself before a jury of marionettes, and "The Night of the Druid's Blood," featuring Don Rickles as a sinister magician. Among the more traditional episodes is "The Night of the Double-Edge Knife," in which Cheyenne Indians are blamed for a series of attacks on railroad workers. Guest stars include Leslie Nielsen playing it straight as an embittered Army general, Katharine Ross, Elisha Cook Jr., and John Drew Barrymore Drew's dad. Political correctness probably dictated use of the tamer animated opening credit sequence in which West merely kisses a knife-wielding femme fatale into submission. But the original opening, in which West clocks his attacker, is included as an extra feature. Conrad's audio introductions for each episode are fun, but he's a little too free and easy with spoilers. After the debacle that was the Will Smith feature film, it's great to have the original series available on DVD. Go West, old fans!

    Steampunk!

    This series was rife with anachronisms and lasted only three seasons!
