"This DVD for I Spy marks one of the better episodes -- Sophia. Scotty's visiting his adoptive daughter, and finds she has a lout for a boyfriend. There's some humorous moments in Rome. In Rome Take Away Three, Culp showcases his talents in transforming Kelly Robinson from a happy go lucky tennis player to a hard agent. There's little humor and some good drama here. Real spy stuff. In Tonia, Cosby gets to play the spy pawn with a girl who is being used by the Italian Communists. Good drama, and mix of humor for this episode. In One of Our Bombs is Missing, the episode mirrors a real life event that had happened in 1966. The agents are looking for an Atom Bomb that had been swiped by Italian villagers after a USAF bomber crashed in the mountains. There's too much humor for this episode. It seems to be modeled after Italian "over the top" acting, too. The U.S. Air Force really did have a B-52 that went down off the coast of Spain, in 1966, and lost something like four H-bombs that had to be recovered. If you are a fan of the show, this is a good DVD. If not, there are others that showcase the I Spy TV show better. Namely I Spy - So Coldly Sweet or I Spy Sparrowhawk."
