"Missed it by THAT much…"

RIP, Agent 86.

Get Smart was always one of my favorite shows growing up. Don Adams was a comic genius. And Barbara Feldon’s Agent 99 was my second love (after “Half Pint” from Little House on the Prairie, natch). I think that show fueled my life-long love of the spy genre, though later spoofs (e.g., the Austin Powers movies) left me pretty cold. RIP, Mr. Adams.
