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>

I remember loving the theme song...
14 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

..and that's about it. I haven't thought about this show for quite some time, only to be reminded of it while looking over the credits for Rod Taylor (someone whom I have always felt resembles Robin Williams...or does Robin resemble Rod?).

At any rate, it's interesting to see that of the few credits posted, the writers for the theme song are listed. I believe (if memory serves) that Crystal Gayle sang it.

I remember now that Kirstie Alley and Greg Evigan were the stars along with Rod Taylor. Post Star Trek 2, Pre- "Cheers," and very very Pre- Pier One commercials, Kirstie Alley proves here that she is definitely a star in the making
