Introduction:

The Emmy-award winning spy-spoof series is back! You can catch Agent 86 Maxwell Smart (played by Don Adams) bumbling through 30 more memorable cases along with his girl Agent 99 (played by Barbara Feldon). And when he messes up, there's sure to be hell raised by their Chief (played by Edward Platt). The entire series can be fond in GET SMART - THE COMPLETE SERIES released by Time Life and HBO studios. In this review season two will be discussed!


Memorable Episodes / Notable Guest Stars:

Memorable episodes this season include: "Anatomy of a Lover" in which a brainwashed Hymie attempts to kill the Chief. "A Spy for a Spy" in which so many kidnappings take place -- no one is left! "Rub-a-Dub-Dub Three Spies in a Tub" is the on where Max and 99 are kidnapped by Siegfried. "Island of the Darned" is the one where 99 and Max are stranded on an island controlled by KAOS. "Someone Down Here Hates Me" is the one in which KAOS puts up a reward to kill Max. "How to Succeed in the Spy Business Without Really Trying" in which Siegfried saves Max and 99 and wants to defect and finally "A Man Called Smart" Parts 1, 2 and 3. Plus many more memorable episodes!

Guest stars this season include Bernie Kopell as Siegfried, Robert Karavelas, King Moody, Dick Gautier, David Gauthier, Gordon Jump, Howard Morton, Vic Tayback, Alan Oppenheimer and more!


Packaging:

The seasons are packaged individually but come together in a larger collector's set. Time Life basically re-created the famous phone booth that Smart disappears into during the opening credits. You flip down the first part, open the second part and then open the phone booth doors to reveal the sets.

The second season set is orange in color and features a shot of Barbara Feldon as 99 and Don Adams as Smart on the cover. There's a clear casing type cover that goes over the cardboard flip-fold set. There are five discs in this set.

The discs themselves have a plain background design, for this set they use orange mixed with red to kind of create what looks like flames (bad explanation but you have to see it -- looks cool). Disc 1 contains episodes 1-8. Disc 2 contains episodes 9-16. Disc 3 contains episodes 17-23. Disc 4 contains episodes 24-30. Disc 5 contains all the bonus features included for this season.


Menu Design and Navigation:

The menu immediately pops up and you see a few video clips from the show playing with the menu selection options on the bottom. Each disc has a different colored menu but a similar design. There is a Play All option, which plays all of the episodes on the set. There is also an "Episodes" selection which takes you to another menu (this is all "animated") that lists the episodes you can watch on the disc. The last selection is "Commentaries" which takes you to a sub-menu that lists the episodes with the commentary on that particular disc and you can choose the episode that way with commentary.


Video and Audio Quality:

Once again, the video is fantastic -- colors are bright and vibrant, as much as possible, and remember, the series is over 40 years old! The audio itself is fine. Not much can be said about it. Each episode is uncut and is around 25 minutes in length with chapter skips available.

DISC 5

Special Features:

All of these special features can be found on Disc 5 (except audio commentary!)

* Audio Commentary by Bernie Kopell (Siegfried)
Although the insert that comes with the season lists a Bernie Kopell commentary on "A Spy for a Spy" that's not the case at all. The commentary track can be found on "How to Succeed in the Spy Business Without Really Trying" This is located on Disc 4, episode 2 on the disc.

* Audio Commentary by Leonard Stern ("Get Smart" Executive Producer)
This can be found on "A Man Called Smart" Part 1 only and is found on Disc 4, episode 5 on the disc.

* "Get Smart" Executive Producer Leonard Stern Interview (31:57)
Basically what the title says -- an interview with Executive Producer Leonard Stern--a very good and lengthy interview. Watch it!

* Featurette - Barbara Feldon: Real Model to Role Model (14:38)
This is a featurette about Barbara Feldon and her turn from a model to a role model.

* 1967 Emmy Broadcast
A. Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actor in a Comedy Series (1:32)
B. Outstanding Writing Achievement in Comedy (1:32)

* Bloopers (2:39)
A bunch of bloopers from the series and what I believe to be the second season

* "Get Smart" Reunion Seminar from 2003 (4:54)
This is a brief clip from the Get Smart reunion seminar.

* Don Adams' 75th Birthday Celebration (53:02)
A lengthy special feature showcasing Don Adams' 75th birthday celebration at the Playboy Mansion

* NBC Broadcast Standards Memos
These are 31 screens featuring what it says -- NBC standards memos.

* Interactive Bonus Feature - "Agent 99's Purse"
You can basically "look through" 99's purse and highlight certain items to get facts about it! Very unique and cool!


Final Comments:

Another fantastic release! I can't believe there are still three more seasons to get through and still such an amazing wealth of special features! I really wish more companies would take the effort to get the stars involved. Sad thing is a lot of stars aren't even aware their shows are being released! Again, Paul Brownstein did an excellent job putting together another good quality set, something that he is very known for. Not much else to say except that you obviously need to buy this set if you are a fan of GET SMART! That's an ORDER agent!


Final Numbers (out of 5 stars - How our point system works)

Video Quality: 4.5/5
Audio Quality: 4.5/5
Special Features: 5/5
Menu Navigation/Design: 5/5
Overall: 4.5/5
