Autocratic Ruler Loveless Nearly Ruins Wests Spring
1 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This particular episode is rich in themes of irony. It is an interesting combination of folks behind the camera as Richard Donner (director later of Superman The Movie) & Gene L Coon (Producer Star Trek) put together a well constructed story.

Loveless in his first episode without Voltaire(Richard Kiel) instead enlists the help of a large woman Miss Kitten Twitty in a plot to rule the world. First, West checks Kitten into his hotel and carries Loveless up to her room. Loveless then proceeds to drug West & make West think he has shot Artie. This sequence is haunting but foreshadows both Donner & Coons later work in direction & production.

From here the plot graduates to Loveless ultimate conquest plan which is only foiled when Kitten figures out that Loveless is not the man he has told her he is. The show highlights the challenges Kitten faces and is very well done.
