Hello everyone! 🙂
Would you believe I’ve just seen the complete original series of ‘Get Smart’ from the 1960s on DVD?! Well, I have!
I’ve enjoyed seeing Mum’s Christmas present! Yes, I know! It’s not Christmas now! This is July! But my parents and I have spent seven months watching this brilliant spy-comedy series of ‘Get Smart’ on DVD. We took our time watching this series and now we’ve seen all 138 episodes! And loving it!
‘Get Smart’ is an American spy-comedy series starring Don Adams as Maxwell Smart, also known as Agent 86! It also stars Barbara Feldon as Agent 99 and Edward Platt as the Chief of CONTROL. I’ve enjoyed the missions of Maxwell Smart and the fight for peace between CONTROL and KAOS in all five seasons of ‘Get Smart’. They’ve all been very exciting and funny!
There’s so many episodes that I’ve enjoyed from this series. I liked the ones with Hymie the robot, Fang the dog secret agent of CONTROL, even the ones with Siegfried the German agent from KAOS! I also love the cone of silence! I love some of Maxwell Smart’s catchphrases like ‘I asked you not to tell me that’ and ‘the old (such and such) trick’!
I really loved the comedy banter and camaraderie of Maxwell Smart, Agent 99 and the Chief. The trio work so well together. I like how the Chief gets easily annoyed with Max’s stupidity in scenes and how 99 referees between them. Don Adams, Barbara Feldon and Edward Platt are so fantastic.
I also love the romantic aspects of the series between Max and 99. I like how the romance gradually develops throughout the series, before they married in Season 4 and eventually have twins in Season 5. This is an aspect of ‘Get Smart’ that’s at the very heart of the series between Max and 99.
‘Get Smart’ is a great spy-comedy series on DVD! I’m pleased my family and I took our time with watching this series from last Christmas in 2015 to this year in July 2016. I was saddened and astonished when we finished the series with ‘I Am Curiously Yellow’. Highly recommend this series!
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
