TV Shows - Wild Wild West, The

The Wild Wild West is an American television series that ran on CBS for four seasons (104 episodes) from September 17, 1965 to April 4, 1969. Developed at a time when the television western was losing ground to the spy genre, this show was conceived by its creator, Michael Garrison, as "James Bond on horseback." It was one of the first television series which could be described as a science fiction Western, and possibly the earliest example of the steampunk genre. Two television movies were made with the original cast in 1979 and 1980, and the series was adapted for a motion picture in 1999 with a new cast and story.

1 Loved the original, and the reunion films, while not quite up to the series' sterling standards, were fun. On the other hand, I HATED the Will Smith movie. Even before it, my husband and I jokingly used the phrase "A Kenneth Branagh Comedy" to describe a project that seems predestined to Bone The Fish, and surely it applies here. When picking up the film's bucketful of Razzie Awards, dear Robert Conrad spoke for the show's hardcore fans when he said, "You'll never know how happy this makes me!" -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on September 2, 2013, 11:09 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Ross Martin broke his leg in a fourth season episode and suffered a heart attack. His character was replaced temporarily by other agents played by Charles Aidman (four episodes), Alan Hale, Jr. and William Schallert. Martin's character was not played by other actor's but Jim West merely had a substitute while Martin recuperated -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on September 15, 2011, 5:10 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The Boning Reason labeled "Same Character, Different Actor" is wrong; Ross Martin was the only actor to play Artemus in the series, and in the TV movies too. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 9, 2011, 8:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Great show. I was actually thinking of The Wild Wild West the other day and it occured to me that this show was almost kind of a proto-Steam Punk. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on April 1, 2011, 5:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Back in the '60s, if I missed an episode of WWW I regarded the whole week as ruined. It never boned - but when they changed the cartoon vignette which accompanied the opening credits, making the cowboy back away from the knife-wielding femme fatale instead of decking her as he had done before, I had an uneasy feeling about the show's future. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 1, 2011, 4:06 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Yeah, I always enjoyed the reruns growing up! My family and I liked what we called "The Artie Gas" episode! Doesn't Artie carefully hover over some weird liquid? Sorry, it's been years since last seeing the series! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on November 6, 2009, 9:26 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 One of the coolest shows of the 1960's! Robert Conrad in those tight pants and bolero jacket was enough reason to watch! Yummy! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on October 8, 2009, 3:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
