Back to Washington, huh, Ned?
Nope. I'm off on a well-deserved vacation.

London, Paris or Rome?
[Shaking head no]

This is not a bad 'West', but what it lacks in story it makes up with in atmosphere. What's really great about it is that it stars Alan Hale and Jim Backus from 'Gilligan's Island' on the show and even plays the 'Gilligan's' theme song briefly at the end of the episode. Dawn Wells had also starred on the show earlier in it's run. And why not,both shows were on CBS. Even though Hale is a good sidekick we again miss Arte and his disguises. The spooky sets are fine and remind me of a scooby doo episode but the plot we've seen a thousand times For that reason the show is a little dry but sit back and take a three hour tour of the Wild Wild West. It's a fun episode
