Get Smart, Again! (1989)

now this is a lot more like it, though not quite as good as the series.  most of the regular cast has been brought back, including Shtarker and Siegfried (Bernie Kopell) which really helps matters.

and thankfully it kept 99 (Barbara Feldon).  not having her in the Nude Bomb was quite the mistake.

KAOS has been bought out, and they now have a weather controlling device.  naturally, they are going to take over the world.

Max and eventually 99 are brought out of retirement to save the day.  the cast works well together, despite the lack of the Chief.  the spy gizmos are updated.  and Max, while still not the brightest bulb in the box, is still resourceful and courageous.  nice to see John de Lancie working as well.

and thank goodness they removed the laugh track from the version I watched.  I hate those.
