Storyline

Each week there would be a new top-secret mission. The spy organization would bring in new operatives to accomplish specific tasks during the mission-of-the-week. Instead of highly-trained agents, they would find a civilian who was an expert in a field. For example, if the job involved somehow planting a bug in a persons house, they might employ a plumber who would be able to figure out how to get the bug in via water pipes). The episodes usually started with a briefing of the new spies, which helped the viewer figure out who could do what. Written by Dan Newcombe <abbk@maristb.marist.edu>

Fun show
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a big Rod Taylor fan, I got a kick out of this show just for his appearance alone. It was a fun, offbeat concept, and really should have been given a chance to survive. Its run was so brief, I don't think it was ever made available to DVD and as far as I know, has never been rebroadcast anywhere, which is a shame. Kirstie Alley was really gorgeous too, a long way away from the tabloid 'fat-joke' fodder she became. I thought the only weak link in the cast was Evigan, a standard issue pretty-boy whose acting left no particular impression. He wasn't awful, just kind of blah next to Rod and Kirstie. Most of the guest stars were quite good. This was made during the height of Reagan's attempts to reignite the Cold War. Spy shows were making a comeback, but the trend was fairly short lived. All the same, 'Masquerade' was one that ought to have lasted for a while.
