Goofs

Artie measures the height of the air inlet for the bubble which appears to be about 10 inches high. He then converts that to real feet with a slide rule. But multiplying the scale by 10 (inches) shouldn't take a slide rule - just move the decimal point over one place. Slide rules, in fact, don't keep track of the decimal point; you would multiply by 1 and move the decimal point over one place. See more »

Watery West
1 May 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I've always loved the stories of this show when they take place in San Francisco down on the water front. Of course it's not really San Francisco but a Paramount set in LA but the atmosphere they achieved was wonderful.

Add to that a sea monster destroying ships, Arte in his sea man disguise, West using ancient diving equipment and Ted Knight from the Mary Tyler Moore Show lurking around as a doomsayer and you've got yourself a wildly entertaining show.

The show was also written by Stephen Kandel who wrote episodes for just about every TV show that ever existed from Batman to The Incredible Hulk.

Unfortunately this was his only Wild Wild West script but it's a good one.
