Trivia:
When this series aired on Fox, it was only the second time a live-action TV series had aired on four different mainstream TV networks (the first was "Tom Corbett, Space Cadet" (1950)). The original series seasons 1-4 aired on NBC, season 5 aired on CBS, the 1989 reunion movie Get Smart, Again! (1989) (TV) aired on ABC, and this new series, as previously mentioned, aired on Fox. Since then, no other live-action television series has accomplished this feat.See more »

I was laughing so hard I set off my seizure alert dog, 10 December 2014
Author: rooprect from New York City

Without a doubt this is the best reboot of any show I've ever seen. By "reboot" I don't mean "remake" as in the excellent "Battlestar Galactica" (2003). I'm talking about a linear continuation of a series after its demise. An unfortunate example would be "Galactica 1980". And who could forget--try as we might--"Three's a Crowd"? The formula was generally to bring back 1 main actor, cut the budget (starting with writers' salaries evidently) and market itself to whatever nostalgic fools there were left in the audience.

While "Get Smart" 1995 may be guilty of that last bit, I'm happy to say that the show was phenomenally good. Not only did it bring back the incomparable Don Adams as Maxwell Smart and the still gorgeous Barbara Feldon as Agent 99, but just as importantly it brought back the original spirit of the show: the quippy 1-liners, the sight gags, and the subtle intelligence that made the original "Get Smart" such a riot back in the late 60s.

I'm not sure who the writers were, but they must've studied the old scripts carefully, because the humor doesn't miss a beat from 25 years prior. "Get Smart" always had a wonderful dark humor and sarcastic wit coupled with a shameless absurdity that would fly at you so fast you could miss some great laughs if you blinked. Take, for example, the following dialogue (not exact but close enough) which is delivered at lightning speed:

MAX: I can't believe you got our $15 million budget approved by Congress. NINETY-NINE: I didn't. They turned me down. MAX: Then how did you get it? NINETY-NINE: I did what everyone else does, went to the National Endowment for the Arts. MAX: Brilliant. NINETY-NINE: We just have to hang some pink curtains in Utah.

And then immediately on to the next gag. The sight gags are very funny, too, as in the old show, usually centering on some preposterously stupid hi-tech gadget that goes awry. Like when Max attempts to use his cufflink phone (microphone on one arm, earpiece on the other) and struggles for a minute before switching arms and muttering: "Wouldn't you know it, I always grab a lefty pair."

The title of my review is absolutely true. I was laughing so hard that literally my dog freaked out and thought I was dying.

The acting... Don Adams and Barbara Feldon need no review; they're as great as they ever were. The 2 newcomers, Andy Dick and Elaine Hendrix, I initially approached with skepticism. But by the 2nd show I was convinced that no one else could've played their roles. Andy Dick is "Zach", Max's somewhat incompetent son. But he plays the role with remarkable restraint--not being over-the-top goofy, but actually coming across as a real human being who just happens to be a bit of a moron. His partner is "Agent 66" (Elaine Hendrix) who is both the brains and the beauty of the team, and somehow the writers always find creative & tasteful ways to show off her cleavage. Like the bullet bra.

I'll say one caveat. Don't base your entire opinion on the pilot episode which, while funny, is the weakest of the lot. This is simply because it has to set up the characters and setting, while the later episodes can jump right into the fun. I haven't seen them all, but my favorite so far is episode 2 "Casino Evil" not only because it's a nonstop bullet storm of great gags, but it features the fabulous Terry Kiser (he is probably best known as the corpse in "Weekend at Bernies", but if you're a fan of Three's Company, you'll recognize him as the "linguine & clams mobster" as well as the psycho boyfriend who almost causes Jack's heart to fail (because "God forgot to wind it").

To sum up, if you're a fan of the old Get Smart, then run don't walk to your nearest video store to pick this up. If you've never seen the old Get Smart, then you can probably compare the humor to the Zucker-Abraham-Zucker masterpieces "Airplane!" & "Top Secret!" The only thing bad about this series is that it came to an end.
