Secret Agent Man undoubtedly was a wonderful TV hit series. I remember watching it at the year of 2001 with crap shows like (Relic Hunter), (Mutant X), (Special Unit 2), (The Lost World), and (Sheena)..(Yes, I was THAT loyal !), and all of the above was nothing compared to this show and its skill, intelligence, sensuality and cheerfulness.
It was the perfect formula to make a real unique fun show : a comic espionage plots with all the parody of BOND movies, done by a good imagination which's full of creativity, fast pace, a slight soft sex, and nice TV action. Barry Sonnenfeld invested the distinguished private world of his global hit (Men In Black) 3 years earlier and put some kind of the Mission:Impossible's details in the mix, with the rare erotic sexuality of the 1960s (where the bond-era started) and all of its verbal or visible humors.
I've never missed an episode and I was so sad when it stopped after episode number 12 (The Breach)..and angry too with having all of the previous stupid shows again with incomprehensible too many seasons too !!.. So the question which's still without any answer till now is : Why on earth did they cancel it ??!!
I won't end my comment without referring to some of interesting things brought by (Secret Agent Man) : Britney Spears is having all of her success by scientific secret developed in the special intelligence !, the striptease shooting bet, machine to vision the ladies as naked (in "The World Is Not Enough - 1999" Brosnan had glasses to see what's under the clothes like the hidden weapons, the underwear.. BUT HERE it's totally another experiment !!), there were unforgettable episodes such as : Like Father Like Monk, Supernaked, WhupSumAss.. (Did you notice the names ?..so crafty !), and there was unspoken about nudity.. Yes ! At that great episode (Supernaked) Rhona Mitra was killing men by getting nude (ALL NUDE !) and kissing them (What a way to go !!) and if you watched it then you already understood the scene in which the evil guy (who controls her) says to the camera while she was walking in front of us with her butt naked (..and they're saying there is nothing good on TV ?!).. WAW.. Who can forget THAT ?!..No ..the real Question would be who can cancel that with a cold blood ?!
Finally, due tribute to the gorgeous cast : the funny (Dondre Whitfield), the more than sexy (Dina Meyer), the strong male and the one and only Secret Agent Man (Costas Mandylor), really what a bunch with a luckless career made them stray in the world of TV and Cinema, and that bad luck they are having was the same of what this good show had also. Alas.
