  • Proof positive that "Get Smart" would not fly on the air today.

    9.1
    It's a shame that shows like this would be crucified by the PC police today, since it's great comedy. But the constant use of "Orientals," the ditzy portrayal of the princess and, of course, the Craw could never be done on a modern TV series, not without incurring wrath from Al Sharpton and his ilk.



    The episode itself is not all based in ethnic humor - Max's scene where he is outfitted with his equipment is terrific, as is the final scene where 99 gives the Chief an impromptu dance lesson.



    But this episode is remembered (and rightfully so) for the Craw ("Claw"), the very Asian KAOS agent who is foiled by Max. His answer when asked why he has kidnapped so many blondes ("All Americans look alike to us") had me rolling on the floor. And the continued mix-up over his name ("Not the Craw! The CRAW!") never got old.moreless
