TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 4 November 2010
Having only vague memories of this series, I decided to read the mostly favourable customer reviews here, and after seeing the great offer on Amazon I thought I'd take a chance on it, and its great! All the glowing reports about this series are spot on.

Lead character Agent 86 - Maxwell Smart (Don Adams) is brilliant, with his great facial expressions and mannerisms, (not to mention that wonderful voice) He basically bungles his way through his assignments with pure luck - and the assistance of the delightful Agent 99, (Barbara Feldon) who helps him to keep one step ahead of that fiendishly subversive organisation K A O S.

With James Bond-style gadgets also on hand, this brilliantly spoofs the likes of The Man From U. N. C. L. E.
There's a continual flow of witty one-liners and delightful sight gags (with writer Mel Brooks involved, what more can you expect)
Back at headquarters waits Smart's Chief of operations, (a great performance by Edward Platt) Also, lets not forget agent K13, the canine called Fang.

As various new characters are introduced, the great standards are maintained throughout the entire series. Its all good clean fun that anyone can watch and won't be offended by swearing, sex or smut.

There are loads of special features on each of the 5 series, including guest spots on TV shows, plus TV advertisements and bloopers.

All episodes are in colour, (except the pilot) and the picture and sound quality are great, with English subtitles.
All 138 episodes are over 5 series, with each 5 disc series stored in a single-size dvd case, which means that the size of the boxset is kept to a minimum.

Superb quality, great jokes (even if they keep repeating them!). The Chief and his numbered agents ("Agent 86 - you're twice the man agent 43 ever was.") fight against the distributors of nastiness, KAOS. Good, clean fun from an era when Good always won, even if Good was a bit stupid! I bought series 1 firstr, and then bought the whole set becauseit is such outstanding value. Great to see it in colour as well (I used to watch it in B&W). A small warning: kids of today will find it a bit dated, but who cares! Dad loves it!!!

It's not often a film makes me laugh out loud, but this one did several times. Steve Carrell at his absolute best. I don't know anything about the original series on which this was based, but it certainly didn't spoil my enjoyment of the film.

Remembered the film being much funnier when I was younger. Still sort of entertaining.

Just when you thought you couldn't watch one more slick spy spoof, a really good one comes along. Steve Carell is a genius and Anne Hathaway is almost as funny, as well as convincingly playing a "serious" agent.
