Storyline

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, Artemus designs a series of interesting gadgets for James that would make Inspector Gadget proud. A lighthearted adventure series.

Trivia

Miguelito Loveless' middle name is Quixote. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series various characters mispronounce "cavalry" as "calvary", confusing a pair of near-homonyms with Latin origins. Cavalry means soldiers on horseback. Calvary means an object shaped like a skull. The most (in)famous "place of the skull" (Calvariae Locus in Latin) was a Jerusalem landmark where convicts such as Jesus Christ were crucified during Roman Empire times. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits as originally designed for the pilot (and included on the season 1 DVD) show the animated cowboy knocking down the woman trying to stab him. In the first season as aired, the cowboy kisses the woman, who dreamily turns away instead of trying to stab him. Later episodes reinstated the cowboy knocking the woman down. See more »

Western/ Horror/ Steam-punk
28 March 2004 | by (Louisville,Ky) – See all my reviews

I loved the "Wild, Wild West" TV series that blended horror , the western & Steam-punk on many episodes. Robert Conrad was James West &Ross Martin was Artemus Gordon, "Man of a thousand faces".It had different stories each week but there were recurring villains- Dr. Miguelito Loveless ( What a great name for a villain !) was played by Michael Dunn ( Star Trek's" Plato's Step-Children") &Count Manzeppi (magician turned assassin) was played by Victor Buono. "Wild, Wild West" was the closest TV ever got to capturing the flavor of comic books. I hope you will someday get to see this series, perhaps on DVD. There are a few episodes out on video. I particularly recommend " The Night the Wizard Shook the Earth", the first Dr. Loveless episode. I loved the Dr. Loveless episodes & the 2 with Victor Buono as Count Manzeppi. Quintessential "Wild, Wild West "episode- "Night of the Vicious Valentine" that deservedly won guest-star Agnes Moorehead an Emmy.
