This is what seemed to have happened with "The New Get Smart", which never made it beyond its first seven episodes.
It's too bad that TNGS didn't catch on, because it held promise. Don Adams (who looked more fit & healthy here than five years earlier in the "Get Smart Again" TV-movie) and Barbara Feldon reprise their roles as Max & 99. Except this time around, things have changed: Max is the chief of CONTROL (Lord help us!) and 99 is a congresswoman with budget ties to her old organization. Actually, they are more of supporting characters for the newly-promoted antics of their son, Zachary Smart (a typically nerdy but likeable Andy Dick). Of course, Zach is just as bumbling as his Dad, but in Dick's own comic stylings. As history repeats itself, he is partnered with a beautiful, skilled & intelligent blond partner, Agent 66 (99 turned upside down..get it?), played by Elaine Hendrix.
Some new supporting players are included: Trudy, a ditzy secretary hired as a temp who thinks CONTROL is a talent agency (!!), a faceless femme-fatale now running the evil organization KAOS, Agent Zero (a master of disguise), and Agent 9 (who is really IS nine years old).
Even some old familiar faces pop up: Dave Ketchum reprises his role as Agent 13 (hiding in a bowl of cole slaw in one episode) and even Bernie Kopell guest stars as the nefarious Siegfried, unemployed by KAOS and exacting revenge on both Max & Zach.
I loved the hilarious opening credits for this series, a new variation on the old access-to-CONTROL theme, by using a car wash as cover. This series lacks the satirical zing of the old series, but it has its moments of loopy verbal comedy & goofy gadgets, 1990's style.
Who knows what this series could have accomplished if it continued? They were barely scratching the surface of Zach & 66's partnership-relationship.
TNGS is probably too obscure for the casual viewer, but definitely of interest to lovers of Get Smart.
This is kind of a cry for help. I purchased the Get Smart series several years ago and was disappointed that seemingly every other disc i watched would have some sort of glitch that would cause the DVD player(S) to freeze. This went for certain computer playing and ripping softwares as well.
I purchased this new set ( for $35+ I figured it was worth another shot). So far, DVD shrink has opened and looked at the first two seasons without any "reading error". My other purchase (Timeline- I think) produced several
What IS the best way to test a product of this size without totally binge-watching and becoming maybe a little tired of it?
