I Spy

I Spy logoA pair of American operatives work undercover as a tennis pro and his trainer. Kelly Robinson is the man with a racket, Alexander Scott is, among other things, a polyglot. The creation of the Cinemobile for location shooting enabled far-flung episodes in Hong Kong, Europe, Mexico, etc. The writing is of a standard that would be very difficult to match in any circumstances, or as Scott & Robinson might say, the wonderfulness of its marvelousness is only equal to the marvelousness of its wonderfulness.

Or a snobbish big sister who hogs the bathroom and grosses you out whenever she kisses her boyfriend? Perhaps kid sister is a tattletale and always reading your diary. Maybe big brother spends too much time bouncing a basketball and not enough time with you ... or on his homework (as his report cards full of C's and D's attests). If any of the above (and much more) were true, this mean-spirited clone of The Newlywed Game was for you. Three sets of siblings usually brother-sister (and nearly always stereoptypical) competed in I'm Telling, a Saturday morning entry hosted by actor Laurie Faso, answering questions about each other in ...
