TV Shows - I Spy

I Spy is an American television secret-agent adventure series. It ran for three seasons on NBC from 1965 to 1968 and teamed Robert Culp as international tennis player Kelly Robinson with Bill Cosby as his trainer, Alexander Scott. The characters' travels as ostensible "tennis bums", Robinson playing talented tennis as an amateur with the wealthy in return for food and lodging, and Scott tagging along, provided a cover story concealing their roles as top agents for the Pentagon. Their real work usually kept them busy chasing villains, spies, and beautiful women. It is regarded as the first dramatic television series to feature an African-American actor (Cosby) in a lead role.

1 Never boned, though the storylines got a little more far fetched towards the end of the series. Robert Culp was perfect as the tennis star playboy who moonlights as a super spy. However, what I really loved was Bill Cosby. He did a great job in a serious role as the young and handsome Alexander Scott. He was suave, witty and dapper, almost the antithesis of the sweater wearing, jello eating family man persona he would later become. In fact, you almost can't recognize him except for his voice. The show filmed in exotic locations and used intelligent writing, making it ahead of it's time. The last show to remind me of this show was Alias, but even that was filmed exclusively in L.A. An excellent show that launched Cosby's career beyond stand-up and made the buddy spy genre popular. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 9, 2010, 5:21 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
