This review is from: Get Smart - HBO Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
A show I fondly remember from childhood.Basically a spoof of the many popular spy shows and movies of the era.It's probably unfair to say but Don Adams portrayal of the title character Maxwell Smart is really what carries the show . Max is the world's worst secret agent obvious to everyone but himself,yet one way or another he manages to win the day Adams creates what should be a very irritating character ,the voice alone gets many people,his exaggerations WOULD YOU BELIEVE.. followed by some outlandish claim .Yet Adams injects a certain charm into Max which has everyone rooting for him.Some may say and rightly so the show's writers Mel Brooks and Buck Henry are the force behind it's success but when I first seen this over 40 years ago
Max and his antics stuck firmly in my mind and today remain still.There are a couple of run of the mill docs and commentaries by Mel Brooks and Max side kick in the show Barbara Feldon as extras.If your a fan you'll probably own this already if you've just a passing knowledge of the show you could do worse than invest in this set it's still fresh and funny Get Smart you won't regret it...
