Artemus Gordon: Jim... I am simply appalled. How can you even consider leniency at a time like this? This woman tried to kill you. She tried to kill both of us.
Jennifer Wingate: I've turned over a new leaf. That must count for something.
Artemus Gordon: Besides, do we know how many other monstrous crimes she may have committed?

Artemus Gordon: W-Well, on the other hand, I mean, there is no need to be vindictive, either, you know. Poor little thing.

The Blind Megolomaniac Captain
15 January 2013 | by souther02See all my reviews

One of my favorite Wild Wild West episodes. Actually, all of the First Season(CBS) shows were my favorite. All in black-and-white, and all those shows are on a set now.

Action, suspense, comedy, mystery, sexy, super-criminal, drama. That sums up this show, and most of the Wild Wild West shows. Artie, Jim's partner is responsible for most of the humor, but much more. Artie is very intelligent, an explosives expert. Artie sadly is the SS agent who gets left out of the romance a lot, but not always. Jim is the one with the knack for the ladies. Although I like women, it is obvious that Robert Conrad is very virile. He worked out a lot, and developed quite a physique in a time when different drugs and drinks were not available on the market to make a man develop contour.

I am not going to tell you anything about the episode. It's a must see, almost a comic book story, but still a TV show with great story. Exceptional production and post-production, and desirable to older set, because the program was really a family show. There was not extreme violence or content. Plus these first shows, not to downplay the later episodes, were very well-made, to inspire interest. In that sense they remind me of The Avengers. Those very early shows starring Honor Blackman, that now command a very high price, were complex. But all the shows from both of the 60's programs were, at least to me, much more entertaining than hour TV adventures from later on.
