The first season of the WILD WILD WEST follows
the adventures of James West (Robert Conrad) and his
sidekick Artemus Gordon comes as an unlikely pair of
Secret Service Agents who work to protect President
Ulysses S. Grant and investigate federal crimes in
the old west. The 7-disc set is packed with 28
digitally remastered episodes, rare footage, audio
commentaries and a special introduction to each
episode from Robert Conrad.
James West and Artemus Gordon are two agents of
President Grant who take their splendidly appointed
private train through the west to fight evil. Half
science fiction and half western, the Artemus
designs a series of interesting gadgets for James
that would make Inspector Gadget proud. A light
hearted adventure series.
"Elaborate little subterfuges" and "intricate
dramas" await the suave and dashing frontier 007,
James West (Robert Conrad) and his partner, master
of disguise Artemus Gordon (Ross Martin), courtesy
of a gallery of rogues and flamboyant villains with
grandiose schemes of world domination.
I do not like gimmicky packaging - especially
when it is prone to damage the discs. This complete
set comes in a rather large box - 11" x 8" x 2 ¾".
The box itself is pretty heavy duty - reminds me a
bit of the candy boxes people like to give.
Wild, wild laughs, adventure and special-effects
wizardry abound when megastar Will Smith reteams
with the director of "Men in Black." Smith is agent
James West, leading sidekick Artemus Gordon (Kevin
Kline) and a sexy adventuress (Salma Hayek) on a
perilous assignment: stop Dr. Arliss Loveless
(Kenneth Branagh) and his contraption-driven plot to
establish a Disunited States of America.
