The usual (contact information below)
Food Theme:   

Join James T. West, Artemus Gordon, and the Laser Rangers Saturday May 7, starting at 4:15 p.m. ("fannish time," so don't look for precision), for a marathon viewing of The Wild, Wild West  episodes.

Actor Michael Dunn played Dr. Miguelito Quixote Loveless,
mad scientist evil genius.
Jim and Artemus, you may recall, are President Grant's agents, fighting evil with a marvelous array of ingenious gadgets, and based out of a private train.

This month's Captain Laser, Bill Ostrander, has promised two "Dr. Loveless" episodes, as well as "Night of the Juggernaut," among the six selections.  

The steam-powered Juggernaut will be featured in one of
the episodes to be viewed Saturday.
The most likely schedule is watching three episodes before supper, and the other three afterward.  The food theme for supper is barbeque (what else?).

The TV series ran for four seasons, 1965-1969.  Robert Conrad played James West, and Ross Martin played Artemus Gordon.
