Upsetting The Chess Board With Zapping Effect
13 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Irving J Moore directed a lot of episodes of Wild Wild West. This Dr. Loveless episode is one of the under rated ones by many. It starts with a shocking bank robbery being pulled off by a phony funeral set up. The opening is set up for shock value quite effectively.

Artemus gets a lot of work in this episode as he gets shot at one point in the episode, and towards the end he gets shocked by a large electrical jolt.

Once again, Dr. Lovelass is going to try and take over the western part of the United States. This time he is training an army of his own to perform the take over. West & Artemus blunder into his plot entirely by accident because of some robbery money which one of Loveless army members mistakenly spends. The mystery for West & Artie is that in spite of a huge series of robberies by these bogus bandits, this one bill is the only one which has shown up to be spent anyplace.

This is a solid effort & the Loveless escape at the finish is a light humored touch.
