5.0 out of 5 stars Missed it by that much July 3, 2009
Smart. Maxwell Smart. The dumbest spy in the world, who fights on behalf of the forces of goodness and niceness, and succeeded in making democracy vs. communism a lot more entertaining. And the first two seasons see this classic spy/comedy series blossom from a solid comedy to a brilliant one, even as it adds supervillain nemeses, KAOS masterminds, and the occasional overweight Arab prince.

Don Adams is Agent 86, Maxwell Smart, a not-so-bright spy with an endless arsenal of strange devices and odd sayings. The bumbling spy at a top-secret government agency called Control, which is responsible for keeping the free world free. Backing him up is his beautiful partner/love interest Agent 99 (Barbara Feldon) and his long-suffering Chief (Eward Platt) who puts up with Smart's constant mistakes.

Together with 99 and the Chief (and his faithful dog Fang), Max battles the forces of badness and rottenness -- namely, the anti-Control called KAOS. Among the enemies the Control agents face: the dwarfish "Mr. Big," the fashion forces of evil, a likable killer robot, a Chinese mastermind called the Claw, and explosive paintings. And that's only the first season.

The second season starts off rockily, with KAOS reprogramming Hymie to murder the Chief, and soon they step up their attacks against CONTROL: KAOS's new leader Siegfried (Bernie Kopell) kidnaps the Chief, and Max responds by kidnapping KAOS's top assassin... unfortunately sparking off a bunch of revenge kidnappings, until nobody is left at either organization.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Shows Like This Anymore April 4, 2012
I grew up watching reruns of Get Smart with my parents--and I can honestly say that it's one of the funniest spy parodies out there, with Don Adams as the bumbling Maxwell Smart. Admittedly, my parents lived through the Cold War era with the rise of the spy thriller genre, James Bond, etc., and some of that backdrop is necessary to get the most out of Get Smart. To truly enjoy a parody, you must understand what is being parodied. And Get Smart skewers every trope, every over-hyped cliche of the Bond films and the Cold War with comedic precision. Whether fighting the forces of evil KAOS or his own incompetence, Maxwell Smart, like cream, always rises to the top.
The first season is very entertaining, but you get a sense that the writers and cast are finding themselves, so to speak. Not so with season two--it starts off right out of the gate with hilarious episode after hilarious episode. Both of them are worth watching for the full experience.
Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious for kids born after 2000 April 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
The humor still resonates although the 10 year old set does not get the shoe phone gags. The cone of silence is invoked daily in our house. My daughter laughs and laughs and laughs at this. Nice, clean entertainment with no commercials and no overly sophisticated tween/teen stuff.

Got this for my brother who is hard to buy presents for because he usually buys whatever he wants on his own. We watched and enjoyed this show as kids. He seemed pleased to receive it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get Smart Season 1 and 2 December 26, 2011

This product was clearly a bootleg copy. I called customer service and told them how upset I was to get a bootleg copy so they shipped another, and guess what...exact same thing...bootleg! I bought this from Amazon direct, not from a reseller. I emailed Amazon to report it and requested someone call me...no one has done so. I guess I'll call HBO next since it's their licensed product that is being bootlegged and resold and Amazon doesn't seem upset about this.

Sorry About That Chief. No series has propelled as many sayings into popular culture. Made in the 1960's this series still is funny even on its umpteenth re-run. Why? Read more
