      Noel Murray AV Club What's striking isn't how ahead of its time the series was, but how of its time... A pervasive Cold War anxiety runs through every one of The Wild Wild West's tightly plotted, tightly framed season-one episodes. Rated: A- Dec 4, 2018 Full Review

      Peabarter _ Sooo entertaining and Conrad and Martin did such a great job in the lead roles. A western theme with an espionage and government agent, theme plus sci-fi, and advanced technology way ahead of its time for when this originally aired. I've watched the first episode and I'm hooked. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/11/23 Full Review sean s There were a few TV shows that my little brother and I looked forward to seeing after getting home from grade school in the early to mid-1970's. This was one of them. They would have been re-runs by then, but we watched them over and over again as we did Gilligan's Island. I figure that the last time that I have seen any of them was 1975. Recently, I decided to watch all four years from start to finish as I get the time. I am half way through year one and really like revisiting this. The first year is black and white, and I know it went to color at one point. I am looking forward to that. As a kid, I remember being fascinated by all the gadgets, action and weirdness of the whole deal. Like many of those old theme songs, this one still vibrates in my memories. It is strange that when I heard the theme music on the first episode, I felt for a little bit that I was sitting down on my old couch after biking home from 4th grade or so. It was a strange feeling to be transported back so long ago if even for just half a minute or so. The shows are written and directed by different people, so some are better than others, but they are worth a watch. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Post a review
