Timeless classic! So stupid, it's funny!
Not as funny as some shows of that time - seems a bit over-acted at times, but I guess that was the point.
This is a priceless classic, in my opinion. Kinda like a very old-fashioned and therfore more tame version of Archer, this series comes up with the craziest ideas and manages to walk the fine line between humour and stupidity so well, that it is absolutely hilarious. Some of my most favourite recurring things are the cone of silence, the shoe-phone and Maxwell trying to trick someone ("You are surrounded by 50 men!" *bad guy doesn't believe it* "Would you beliiieve... 20 men?"). If you enjoy this show I can only recommend the movie to you - they managed to capture the serie's spirit wonderfully and didn't lose the humor.
Immediately thought of (1) "James Bond - Goldfinger" (1964) and then (2) "Austin Powers - Goldmember" (2002). Considering the episode was years before "Goldmember" was ever conceived of, I'm pretty sure the "Get Smart" guys may have been spoofing on the James Bond film released a couple of years earlier.
This show is crazy and very funny in 1965-1970, great comedy. I am going to rewatch he series now 2019.
