Storyline

V.H. Adderly, a former James Bond style operative for I.S.I., is given a desk job in the Department of Miscellaneous Affairs after losing function in his left hand- the result of torture by enemy agents. He hates the mundane assignments he is given, thumbs his nose at protocol, and somehow manages to dig up a threat to national security or a spy at every turn. Melville Greenspan, his boss, is an insecure life long pencil pushing bureaucrat, who seems concerned only with not making waves and making sure that the proper forms are filled out. He is afraid that Adderly's snooping will result in his being fired. Mona is the efficient department clerk/secretary, almost bored with her work and longing for excitement (and a date with V.H.). She often covered for Adderly, and would occasionally help him on assignments, sometimes with Greenspan's permission. Written by Steve Yudewitz <z004790b@bcfreenet.seflin.lib.fl.us>

It's been a long time since I thought of this show
23 August 2004 | by (Alamogordo, USA) – See all my reviews

It's been a long time since I thought of this show. I was watching the Chuck Norris movie "Hit Man" and saw Ken Pogue. I remembered that I used to see him in some Canadian show about a spy that had much the same feel as another favorite, "MacGyver". I couldn't quite remember what the show was until I searched this site.

Now I remember more about it, such as the pencil pushing boss and the slightly daft secretary. I see that it went on for a couple of years and hope that it will show up again in syndication, such as TVLand or something.

I don't remember lots of specifics, but I do remember I tried never to miss an episode.
