  • An Artemus Gordon Adventure!

    No wonder this is Ross Martin's favorite episode. With Artie front and center, he reminds us that he can carry a series and be a leading man of romance and action. He has the right amount of panache, derring-do, and humor, and it makes you wish he had more "solo" episodes as the series went on. The episode itself is classic "West:" megalomaniac, crazy plan, comic relief, a beautiful girl and some brawls. Ida Lupino makes for an ideal villainess, and her plan to turn corpses into human time bombs is perfect for the show.

    Artie gets the girl (almost), saves the day and socks the bad guys. Of course, Jim turns up to help, but this is Gordon all the way, and as such it's one of the best episodes of Season 2.
