Storyline

By order of President Grant, Agents James West and Artemus Gordon must bring Russian prisoner Rimsky to Vladivostok, Siberia, in exchange for American Vice Consul, Millard Boyer. When he tries to escape, Rimsky falls to his death forcing Gordon to disguise himself as Rimsky to complete the exchange. The Russian contact arranging the exchange has West and Gordon imprisoned with the Vice Consul instead. There, they learn that Rimsky should have returned with 5 million dollars in extortion money from wealthy Russian immigrants. Now, the corrupt Russians are waiting for Rimsky and their cut of the ill-gotten treasure. Written by Tiff Banks

Goofs

Around the time Rimsky is delivered to West and Gordon on the train, a sniper is scoping out the train from a platform, looking down into the train through the windows. Since the windows in the train car are below head level, there is no way the sniper could have looked DOWN from the platform into the train car and seen West's head. See more »

Despicable Nicky
2 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

John Astins character is the lowest and most glibly evil since Night of The Skulls. His noxious murder of Chekov as his sister in law dryly and amusedly looks on is infuriating. His death is a pleasure to watch but her hanging would have been nice to mention. Really this type of real evil set this show apart and may have gotten it canceled early. Nicky always bothered me a lot. Perhaps that is a compliment to his creators. Some depictions of evil haunt one for life because of what they represent. Astins Tour De Force performance does this incredibly well. So I love him and hate Nicky. Love hate syndrome. Anastasia is also a La Belle Dam Sam Merci from hell. S/M hits the prairie once more.
