Did You Know?


While the notion of time as a dimension or property of space (space-time) had not yet emerged, a literary tradition of time travel was already well established, going back almost 2,500 years. The earliest known depiction of a mechanism for voluntary time travel was the 1887 novel 'El Anacronópete' by Enrique Gaspar y Rimbau. See more »


In the dueling scene, West and Jack are using sabers, but their fighting style is for foil/epee. See more »


Artemus Gordon: By the way, what is your name?
Jim West: James. James West.
Artemus Gordon: How do you do, James? It's an odd thing, but I have this ridiculous feeling that you and I have done all this before. Isn't that ridiculous? Well, it was fun while it lasted, wasn't it, James?
Jim West: It's not over yet. I've gone to too much trouble to find you.
Artemus Gordon: You, have too much trouble to find me.

The First Fantasy Island?
19 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ricardo Montalban in another of his great characters plays a mad Magician seeking to get his legs back,if you see this it wont take long to figure out it could have been the pilot to Fantasy Island,the time travel aspect of going back in time to kill General Grant is quite campy and vague as in most West episodes,but I found it to be a quite interesting episode.

Weird Scene... After the opening scene James West is riding his horse though town stopping at a saloon,if you look closely you'll see an airplane fly over in the distance..OK! it could only have been Dr. Loveless who invented just about everything before anybody.
