Did You Know?


When Loveless' uncle is introduced to West, his name is given as "Doctor Liebknicht". Translated literally from German, this is "love-not" (although in German, "nicht" is spelled without the 'k'), which means the same as Loveless. See more »


The leather strap holding down James West has almost split in two even before he "cuts" it. See more »

Herr West Gets Tickled
13 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of the West series is about humor & a wink of the eye. While this Loveless episode is not as large an action episode as some, it does twist the plot along with a Tickle, a parrot & a grin. It is entertaining which is what this series is all about and has some clever gadgets & touches.

The opening sequence is Loveless funeral where he appears to be dead in his casket at a funeral home when West & Artie come in. Then, they get in a fight with some folks at the home and start a huge fire which appears to incinerate the body. While it is never explained, how Lovelesses body gets out of this situation, it is no surprise to veteran West viewers that he does escape even though he is lying there dead.

The valuable clues that lead to the Loveless will and to the introduction of West & Artie to his twin brother are quite entertaining. As usual, Loveless has more in mind than it originally appears including setting himself up to perform brain surgery on Jim West. Fortunately, Artie comes in to help West out of the situation before the knife can get started.
