Let's face it - This TV Western from the mid-1960s certainly could've been a whole lot better.

Not only did I find that the scripts were often really weak and the stories borderline stupid and ludicrous, but the episodes (at an hour in length) were just too long and dragged-out to hold my undivided attention.

Not only that, but I also found that I took a somewhat strong disliking toward actor Robert Conrad who played Federal Agent, James West.

At best, Conrad was only a mediocre actor. And besides that, his West character (even though he was a pretty good brawler) was too much of a fop (with his immaculate, colour-coordinated outfits) for my liking.

Had Conrad's character been more of a rugged, cowboy-type dude (rather than a fashionable dandy), then, perhaps, The Wild, Wild West would've appealed to my sense of masculinity a whole lot more.

VERY GOOD compilation (28 episodes) of 1st season of James Bond goes Wild West television series which aired from 1965-1969.
Kind of whack plots integrating some odd twists that add to the fun. I had forgotten how handsome and talented an actor Robert Conrad was.

Actually the first year of WWW (shot in b&w) is very well made with some very well crafted moral adventure stories, and without all the camp that followed the rest of the seasons. Quite good 4 out of 5 stars
