Ultimate DVD - 04/01/2008 4 stars out of 5 -- "From the 1960s, this is a surprisingly entertaining Western series starring Robert Conrad and Ross Martin as Government operatives who deal out justice on a daily basis."
While following in the tradition of conventional Westerns like GUNSMOKE or HAVE GUN WILL TRAVEL, the innovative 1960s television series THE WILD WILD WEST tweaked the genre by infusing science-fiction elements and James Bond-like espionage plotlines. As dashingly handsome secret agent James T. West (Robert Conrad) and his master-of-disguise sidekick, Artemus Gordon (Ross Martin), investigated crimes in the late-1800s Wild West, the series distinguished itself with anachronistically high-tech gadgetry (a pioneering style that would later be come to known as "steampunk") and an odd assemblage of villains that included the delightfully demented dwarf, Miguelito Loveless (Michael Dunn). Eccentric and visionary, the series is resurrected in this collection of remastered episodes from the third season.
