THE WILD WILD WEST's second year is the essential and definitive season of this awesome, super-cool show. The series at this stage achieved a colorfully artistic peak and gave us the most fondly remembered and most often syndicated episodes of the entire four season run. Although some first year shows benefited from the gothic atmosphere created in part by the black & white photography, the second season's abundance of colorful circuses, carnivals, toy factories, magic shows, Victorian interiors, jewel-bedecked "aliens", harem dancers, and many other things too numerous to list, gave us a phantasmagorically mod and pshycedelic wild west universe to romp in. The stories are also the best in the series and the episodes as produced are each a virtual masterpiece of 1960's TV. This is the season that most fans think of when they remember THE WILD WILD WEST as one of the most awesome and cool shows of all time. Each season contained great episodes and all are must-haves for anyone who likes the show. But if you only buy and/or watch one season of the WILD WILD WEST, this second year is it. Discover for yourself exactly what I mean and you'll have a blast doing it. The fantastic plots are too numerous to list, as are the superb guest stars(OK, a few: Boris Karloff as an east Indian Maharajah, Ricardo Montalban as a paraplegic with an impossibly mind-blowing secret, and Richard Pryor as a mute magician's assistant). You'll experience how time travel is believably worked into a very well-done episode. Once again, I must stress that this set is pretty much IT when it comes to action-adventure television. Have fun seeing how fast you can pick out "Arty" in disguise...and...Enjoy...'Nuff said.
