Great followup series to Sheldon Leonard's I Spy
21 February 2008 | by eljefe320See all my reviews

Not a classic lost series but a very entertaining show that certainly deserved a better fate. As Leonard talked about in his book, Cerusico appealed to a young audience. However, an NBC executive was mad at him for not agreeing to do a fourth season of I Spy so to get even with him they scheduled the show Sunday night at 10PM when the young viewers wouldn't be watching. So the show ran 16 episodes and hasn't been seen in the US again. Easily could have had a nice 3 year run. The scripts were about equal to a typical I Spy episode and Cerusico was extremely likable in his role. Whitmore was solid as always in the role of mentor/father figure. As with Leonard's previous show, there was a nice mix of drama with touches of humor to lighten the mood.
