Storyline

Maxwell Smart is a bumbling secret agent, assigned by his "Chief" to foil KAOS' latest plans for taking over the world. Invariably, Smart's bumbling detective style lands him in hot water. Lucky for him, his faithful assistant "99" is there to bail him out. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Best Spy/Spoof TV Show Ever!
23 April 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Nobody on earth is as funny as Don Adams playing Maxwell Smart, Secret Agent 86 of Control. Control is the secret agency created to fight the evil Kaos organization whose goal is ruling the world or destroying it, depending on which episode. They're were lots of jokes and gags in each show making it fun to watch.

99 (Barbara Feldon) and the Chief (Ed Platt) help Max through everything. They always wonder how a goof like him became a spy. Max's performance is outstanding. One minute he's bumbling around and the next he's in a knife/gunfight with 2 Kaos agents. Max's "sorry about that chief" line is his best and most popular catchphrase. The funniest thing is when Max takes a job as a cover. He takes it so seriously that you can't help but laugh. Imagine the whole world in jeopardy and all you can think about is finishing your shift pruning trees! Max is also very cheap which is so hilarious. He gets overtime after six!

99 and Max grew closer as the series went on. You could actually feel some chemistry between them, that's probably why the show lasted for so long. Most people were hoping that Max would finally just kiss 99 and stop trying to avoid her like the plague.

Larrabee (Robert Karvelas) came into his own later in the series as a total idiot. The Chief and Larrabee had some funny scenes, the best in my opinion being the one where they are locked in a vault together! Hymie is a monotone talking robot right down to the "T". His superhuman strength and zany sensitive male side help Max defeat many Kaos enemies.

As for the bad guys, Siegfried (Bernie Kopell) and Shtarker (King Moody) are probably the most devious and have the most appearances of Max's enemies. But Leadside, Dr. Yes, Mr. Big, Mr. Snead and Mrs. Neal, and The Groovy Guru come pretty close to naughtiness. "If only they could have used their talents for niceness."

If you have a chance turn on TV Land or whatever channel plays Get Smart and watch it! You will thank me.
