Did You Know?


When Max is riding in the police car after the trial, the framing of the shot is set too low. You can clearly see that the car has no dashboard and the steering wheel is just mounted on a stand. See more »

Run Away
3 December 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Though Adams does a nice job directing himself, this "Fugitive" parody is a bit disappointing and not up to the shows usual high standards.

The episode starts with Max in a bank, trying to get a loan while being watched by a one-handed man (Allen Jaffe). The sequence goes on a long time without any jokes of note. Later, the one-handed man returns to rob the bank assisted with a man in a Maxwell Smart mask. It's all part of a KAOS plot as the Max doppleganger shoots and kills a guard (who incidentally is the only witness to the shooting) and suddenly Max is wanted for murder. At the trial people like the bank manager (who clearly did NOT see the Max double shoot the guard) testify they saw Max do it. This is all kind of sloppy writing.

Max escapes from the police, and goes on the run looking for the one-handed man in the hopes that he can clear himself.

Milton Berle makes a unfunny cameo as a clerk in a seedy motel, while the Chief and 99 are given precious little to do in this one. The ending is just about as flat as the beginning, only it has the virtue of not being as long. Too bad, because this should have been a GREAT parody show. It's only through Adams consistently good comic performance as Max that makes this episode even worth bothering with.
