Spy Rewind – Get Smart in the Golden Age of Spy TV (163)

Get Smart Review

In this episode of Spy Rewind, Double O Section‘s Matthew Bradford and SpyWrite‘s Jeff Quest take a look at the groundbreaking and Emmy winning spy tv comedy, Get Smart.

They discuss whether all spies need a shoe phone, the importance of being self-assured for comedy, and why the movie reboot was such a misfire. Plus, 99 sings, and Matthew gives us the writer's bible description of Maxwell Smart! All that and more in this episode of Spybrary.

Get Smart in a nutshell – Maxwell Smart, a highly intellectual but bumbling spy working for the CONTROL agency, battles the evil forces of rival spy agency KAOS with the help of his competent partner Agent 99.
