2018 Australian 6-episode series which we HIGHLY recommend both for spy geeks and people that don’t care much about tradecraft but enjoy a solid human drama. Watching these characters unwind and reveal their true characters under the duress of multiple intertwining espionage threats was a real treat for both of us. ALSO!!!! It is our first episode featuring a guest with actual expertise in the field, author and ex-intelligence officer Francis Hamit. Really excited about this one.

Spy entertainment news and alerts, plus our quick takes on Homeland. The critically acclaimed Showtime original tv series wrapped its 8th and final (???) season last year. We watched just a couple episodes of the first season and have some thoughts that might help you decide if you want to get on for the ride (if you haven't already).
Our next regular episode will be Pine Gap, a 6-episode series from Australia that we HIGHLY recommend, and work has begun on a deep dive into Judas and the Black Messiah (2021).

We are getting goofy again with this one. The Get Smart TV series capitalized on the Bond explosion of the 60’s with the first witty and parodic take on the spy genre, and 50 years later Warner Brothers decided to see if there was still gas in that tank. Yammering Lew and Lon Lovett join us to discuss the 2008 version of Get Smart. We have fun with it.

Spy entertainment news and alerts, plus our quick takes on The Courier. We went straight to the theater for this one and we recommend it highly for spy geeks!
The next regular episodes will be our Get Smart (2008) treatment; we will have some fun with a spy comedy, and following that we are VERY EXCITED to have an actual military intelligence expert to help us break down Pine Gap.
