Wild Wild West -- pretty girl #3


I can see that this lady is quite attractive, but there was always something about her that repelled me. Partly I think it's because she just wasn't that good an actress, but there was something else. Even in a still photo, she still doesn't work. There's something that's just a bit off, though I'm not sure what it might be.

UPDATE: Now having watched three episodes, one thing I'm noticing quite clearly is that the Artemus character was much less important in the first season. He got a lot less screen time than I remember from the later seasons.

UPDATE: And here's #4, from episode 4:


Interesting how much overlap there's been with original Star Trek, isn't it?

1 There's something off about her face.  Like its sculpted just *slightly* wrong for human.

2 In terms of what we expect from the "pretty girl" stereotype, I think her jaw is too strong. That may be the problem.

3 I hadn't thought about it before but you are right about the pretty girl types in Star Trek and Wild Wild West. They both tended to cast for the same type. IIRC, Star Trek would always have a single significant girl every week, but they would make up by occasionally having gaggle in an episode. Star Trek did have an advantage in that they could show more with their costumes. Early fan service.

4 The first one up there was in the ST ep about Apollo. The second one was in the Halloween episode (I think it was called "Catspaw").
