99 and Script in Labor
2 February 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

The birth of the Smart twins should have been a memorable highlight of the 5th season. Instead, the story is stretched into an unsustainable two-parter that is NOT one of the better fifth season shows.

Way too much time is wasted on scenes where Max "rehearses" getting 99 to the hospital, using tiresome fast motion driving and a lot of really predictable stuff involving wrong hospitals. Buried in all this is a really interesting KAOS bad guy, Simon the Likable (Jack Gilford, who was starring in a popular series of Cracker Jack commercials at the time) a agent who people could not help but like. There's also a good scene where the Chief tells Larabee they've tracked a KAOS courier to the bus terminal and will get him for sure unless they get some sort of bad break ("Smart is at the terminal Chief." "That's it!" "What's it, Chief?" "A bad break."). Simon's powers are used pretty well and Gifford is great pretty much just smiling and looking friendly.

But again and again the writers fall in to the "make Max TOO dumb" trap, such as when he takes Simon's trench coat instead of his own and thinking Simon's map is his, drives 99 to the secret KAOS headquarters instead of the maternity hospital. I mean, he mapped out the route and we saw him practice it in this same episode! I know it's "Get Smart", but it makes no sense for him (and certainly her--99 is no dummy) to get to a place that CLEARLY is not their hospital, yet they accept it unquestioningly.

I'm sure they expanded it into a two-parter for sweeps, but this episode would have been MUCH better as a one part episode and a lot of the fat could have been cut out.
