Trivia

The Dodge City exterior set from CBS's _Gunsmoke (1955)_ is unrecognizable in its redress as the San Francisco waterfront in the opening act. At least not until West enters the familiar Longbranch saloon interior. In one of the more creative uses of the Dodge City sets, a seedy waterfront bar is created using what appears to be the Dodge livery stable. See more »

Goofs

During the kraken's attack on the U.S. Navy lieutenant, a wire helping to suspend a tentacle is clearly visible. 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.
