Storyline

Jonathan Hart was a self-made millionaire--the CEO of Hart Industries, a global conglomerate. His gorgeous wife Jennifer was a freelance journalist. They were both amateur sleuths, and in every episode found themselves up to their eyeballs in murder, smuggling, theft and international espionage. They also managed to find time to snuggle together, as they loved each other very much. Max was their loyal, gravelly-voiced butler, cook & chauffeur, and Freeway their pet canine.

One of the best shows of the 80s
20 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm into my forties now and I love watching old movies and TV shows that were playing when I was a kid. I recently purchased the first season of "Hart to Hart" on DVD and plan on buying the second and all the other seasons if they ever release them. Stefanie Powers, Robert Wagner were class acts and gave the show just the right chemistry. The running themes of the show seemed to be beautiful people, beautiful places and feel good emotions. The Harts were always dressed in the height of fashion whether they're being chased through a swamp by Mexican police or paying a visit to the local pool hall. The quality of the filming, the lighting, the sets are combined to produce a visually stunning effect, one that you won't find in today's shows. Compare that with today's boring reality shows working in restaurant kitchens or getting a makeover with a little scripted drama thrown in by some pimple faced, self absorbed automaton. "Hart to Hart" wasn't trying to push an agenda either it was just pure entertainment. Sometimes I wish they would remake this show but I know that with today's standards and writing it wouldn't be as good as the original and probably end up canceled within a few months.
