    His show combined the secret agent fad with the Westerns craze. And it was never successfully imitated.

    I liked him in both “Wild Wild West” and “Baa Baa Black Sheep”, another good one gone. RIP.

    I have "Wild Wild West" and "Black Sheep Squadron" on DVD. He was one of the great actors of his time.

    I like all his shows, even High Mountain Rangers.

    Will miss him.

    It also had some fine looking women on the show for an impressionable young lad like myself.

    I thought the remake with Will Smith was a joke and highlighted how good the original was.

    I read an interview with Conrad where he said he had been studying martial arts (Kajukenbo and Shotokan) for seven years before the Wild Wild West series and he continued to study until late in life. He did most of his own stunts, one of which put him in the hospital. Another interesting tidbit is he studied Flamenco dancing for the series to improve his footwork.
