Crazy Credits

Ross Martin is credited as playing "Bernard Havitol" during the opening credits. More accurately he should have been credited as "Havitol/Bernard" as they are two different characters both played by Martin: William Havitol, the villain, and Dr. Hinkley Bernard, who is later impersonated by Havitol.

The Night of The Wonderful Woman
6 December 2007 | by (Omaha, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

As a huge fan of THE WILD WILD WEST I was especially eager to see "IRAC is Missing" as this episode featured Ross "Artemus Gordon" Martin as guest baddie Bernard Havitol (a surname in the great comic tradition of fiends like Dr. Victor Von Doom). And it was great to see a couple nods to Martin's past role, from his disguising himself as a poor man's Einstein with a thick accent to his creating gadgets like the anti-Rover mechanized dog that, in a surprisingly scatological scene, drops a couple bombs on Diana's office rug. Martin was wonderful to watch and I was delighted by the homage to Arte. (WWW aficionados will recognize Bruce Lansbury's name in the credits and safely assume these winks to fans were not by happenstance.)

What detracts from the episode is what in general detracted from the last two seasons of WONDER WOMAN. Diana Prince strides around without her glasses and looks so obviously like Wonder Woman it is absurd that Steve Trevor doesn't recognize her. In a later scene, an abrasive Diana seems to forget that she's Steve's assistant and talks to him like he's reporting to her. Trevor was relegated to the fringe of this story anyway, which is a shame since Lyle Waggoner's presence lends the show a firmer foundation. I think these later seasons suffer from a lack of a stable supporting cast.

What hurt my overall appreciation of this episode in particular are nagging questions that maybe should not even be asked when watching escapist fun like WONDER WOMAN. But c'mon already. Why would a genius like Havitol trust vital legwork to a couple of bumblers, one who can't even keep his glued-on moustache from peeling up? And why would that same genius house his world-dominating supercomputer in an old mill where all the electricity comes in on a few very exposed aerial power lines? When Wonder Woman severs them to stop the power to the bomb Havitol left behind, why does the digital display still show up? If the power was cut it should have simply went dark (but then the swipe from--oops--homage to GOLDFINGER wouldn't have worked).

But even if you overlook those holes in the story, how does anyone explain how Rover opened the door and climbed into the front seat of Diana's car? If this wasn't a DC character I'd demand my no-prize!
