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.
