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. Written by

The recurring science fiction theme, where genius scientists in the 1870s invent technology which didn't exist in the real world until decades later, has come to be called "steampunk," a term coined in the 1980s. See more »
The car has numerous hidden compartments which slide out of the wall or down from the ceiling. In actuality these compartments are much too large to fit inside the walls of the car and would extend out past the sides and roof. See more »
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 »
I remember watching the reruns when I was a kid. Truly, a great show. Not just because of the sci-fi/western premise, but because Conrad and Martin were so great on the show. Of all the spy shows and movies to come out of the 60s, Conrad (James West) had to be the coolest. The great music and opening sequence are legendary. Whereas this is one of the greatest cast westerns of the 60s, its 1999 movie remake is probably one of the worst cast films of the 90s. I hope they release these episodes on DVD someday.
