Pretty darn good show
2 August 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

"Secret Agent Man" - think Get Smart with 90s sensibilities. The formula is the same - every week some evil organization threatens the world - and our two agents "Monk" (Costas Mandaylor) and "Holliday" (Dina Meyer) are off to save the day - with the help of a completely-hip and smarter-than-both-the-agents black "Q" named "Davis" (Dondre Whitfield).

Keeping the "Get Smart" analogy going, "The Chief" is named "Brubeck" (Paul Guilfoyle)

The differences with "Get Smart" - Monk's "weakness" isn't being a clod it's women. Holliday is pretty much like "Agent 99" - she's fashionable, buttoned-down, business-woman type that plays a very-rye straight-man for much of the show's humor (as well as being just amazing to look at). Unlike "The Chief" - "Brubeck" is an upper-crust, tea-drinking, breaucrat-on-steroids, with absolute dictitorial powers over the lives of our heros and a large lazy streak who always has complete confidence in the eventual success of his agents.

"Davis" is the somewhat snotty "who you gonna call?" keeper of the cool gadgets - the ones the agents always loose, break and destroy - and he gets in trouble for it (and often takes it out on the agents).

The action is good, the humor is smart (if somewhat predictable) - the editing is very sexy. However! The best part of every episode is the bevy of amazing-looking and very fashionably-(un)dressed women guest stars (think Paris-runway super models)

Lately, the frequent guest evil-doer is the former agent "Prima" (Musatta Vander).

All and all 7 of 10 - a good 60 minutes of mind-numbing sexy time wasting for when you're not doing anything important.
