The non-topical plots hold up nicely to the passage of 50 years. A sort of simplified "Mission Impossible". Fewer characters, less complicated parts, all make each one hour episode an enjoyable, relaxing watch. The SIA, America's top secret spy agency tasked with protecting the country's interests in handling delicate international relations, needs a thief on staff. They propose a deal to highly skilled professional jewel thief Alexander Munday (Robert Wagner) -- currently in prison. The deal: We'll get you paroled, and in return you work for us, totally under our control; we'll set you up in a mansion in Washington DC, disguised in the role of international playboy. Fast cars and pretty young women galore. "Pretty women?" says Munday? "Done!". Recommended.

One of the better American television adventures series, very much of its late sixties era but still watchable today. A catchy, memorable Dave Grusin theme, excellent production values, great guest stars (including Susan St. James, Bill Bixby and major appearances by the likes of Bette Davis and Fred Astaire), and a nice frenemy-type chemistry between Wagner and (until he left the series after season 2) the wry Malachi Throne. Probably Wagner's finest hour for series TV work.
