He's Not Heavy, He's My Sultan
28 May 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few "Get Smart" episodes actually credited to creator Mel Brooks, and its a funny one.

Max must guard the visiting Prince Sully before he does the traditional weigh in before becoming monarch of his country. They value heft there and expect the Prince to be 300 pounds or more. KAOS wants to get the Prince and force him to lose weight, which they feel will throw the Prince's country into well, chaos.

Leading the KAOS team of athletic babes is Mary Jack Armstrong (Karen Steele, familiar as one of "Mudd's Women" on "Star Trek"). She's attractive and tough throughout. She and Max do a funny variation of the old poisoned drink bit, where each of them keeps making the other look the other way while they switch drinks (at one point Max asks "Do I have to?"). Ed Platt gets a funny moment with Mary Jack as well at the show's ending while Max gets a great gift from the Prince before the final fadeout.

A superior episode.
