    One i loved as a kid in the '70s, to see it now it would probably be lame but its been so long all i remember is that i loved it lol, was a show called "A Man Called Sloan", Starring Robet Conrad, of "Wild, Wild West" & "Baa Baa Black Sheep" fame. Him and his partner Torx{I think thats what his name was, not sure}, an African American dude who had a Robotic hand that could do all kinds of neat things, would go on a cool new mission each week. One of the neat things about the show was that there was a "Q" like character in it who made neat little toys for his robotic hand and each week he got a new attachment for it. I loved the show but it didnt run very long.

      I remember those. Also "Mission Impossible". Recently, I think "Alias" & "Le Femme Nikita" would also count. I hear they are going to be making a "Mr & Mrs. Smith" tv show soon.

        Thanks men good id's.........

        completely blew off MI and of course that was Landau and Bain ala Space 1999 (slaps himself)...

        probably because that puzwatty Cruise has made a bundle off of it and i despise the twerp. Should have quit pissing and moaning about his dysfunctional youth and joined the crotch...this way he could have avoided meeting Fat Rosie

        anybody give up Kidman is braindead ....but i digress....

        Didnt know the one about Bob Conrad..KGP.. but i love the guy.

          How about "Reilly, Ace of Spies" w/ Sam Neill--I think it was a BBC production that aired on PBS in the US

            I never watched spy dramas much, but Getsmart was always watchable.
            Life is change. Built models for decades.
            Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
            I didn't for a long time either.

                Danger Man (with Patrick McGoohan) was called Secret Agent in the US. Had a great theme by Roy Orbison.

                The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman were both agents. Not very good shows, but...

                    "MI5" and another one from Britain a few years ago called "The Professionals". I don't recall much about the series (it was in the 80's and that era is pretty much a blur ) but I know one of the guys was ex SAS and did a movie called "The Final Option" or something like that based on the raid on the Embassy that made the SAS world famous (not that they weren't before...)

                    Added: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075561/

                    The Professionals ran from 1977-1983. This series chronicled the lives of Bodie and Doyle, top agents for Britain's CI5 (Criminal Intelligence 5), and their controller, George Cowley. The mandate of CI5 was to fight terrorism and similar high-profile crimes. Cowley, a hard ex-MI5 operative, hand-picked each of his men. Bodie was a cynical ex-SAS paratrooper and mercenary whose nature ran to controlled violence, while his partner, Doyle, came to CI5 from the regular police force, and was more of an open minded liberal. Their relationship was often contentious, but they were the top men in their field, and the ones to whom Cowley always assigned to the toughest cases.

                      Scarecrow and Mrs. King with Kate Jackson and Bruce Boxleitner. Divorced mom teams with a government agent. Rather tongue in cheek and lasted for four seasons. (Don't know why.)

                      It Takes a Thief with Robert Wagner. Cat burglar Alexander Mundy strikes a deal for a pardon by working for a government agency.

                          Oopsy, my mind is failing me. The theme song for Secret Agent was by Johhny Rivers, not Roy Orbison.

                            You forgot this one guys

                            Mainly Aussies would know of this TV series.

                            Spyforce

                            (1971-1973)
                            WWII Australian Spy/Commando Action TV series

                            Redmond Philips - Col. Cato
                            Jack Thompson - Erskine
                            Peter Sumner - Gunther Haber
                            Katy Wild - Lt. French

                            I remember as a kid watching it, it had island jungle fighting against the japanese and heaps of action.
                            It used to be my favorite show on TV, but its been so long since I watched any episodes I can't really remember them.

                            If the Producers brought it again out on DVD I would buy them.

                            Cheers,
                            Dave

                              Do PIs count? Or is spying different than investigating?

                              Charlie's Angels
                              Magnum, PI
                              Remington Steele
                              Love. Where does it come from?
                              from The Thin Red Line
