    RIP Don Adams (Maxwell Smart)

    The star of Get Smart, Don Adams, just died.
    I know Get Smart is well liked on these forums, and I really loved watching repeats of it as a kid. It really was a great show and Adams pulled off the absolute stupidness of Smart so well.

    Did you know he was the third man on the moon?
    Would you believe the sixth?
    Ok, how about a girl scout with a box of cookies?

    He did died at the age of 82.
    If if was 85... he could have said this....

    That's horrible news. My favourite was "That's the second biggest arrow I've ever seen". Also, did great work on Inspector Gadget. I loved that as a little kid

    What about his shoe-phone. That was arguably the coolest appliance ever on TV. Also, even after years of seeing it, I always used to laugh at the intro of the show, when he got his nose caught in the elevator doors. Classic!

    Yeah, it's a shame. Lived to a decent age though. I loved "Get Smart" - one of those early shows that everybody could quote a few repetitive lines of. The schtick didn't get much newer, but it stayed reasonably funny. And I loved the Chief ("call it a lucky guess, Max").

    There's apparently a new film being made of the series with Steve Carell (from the awful, American version of "The Office") in the lead, which will probably be awful.
