|Too bad the movie wasn't super.|
Okay, that's not true.
Well, the Sean Connery part. And the James Bond part. And the "stars" part. But it is a spy movie.
I wasn't familiar with Ray Danton, who had the lead role in this movie. But, I suspect I've seen him in stuff. He appeared in guest-starring roles on 77 Sunset Strip, Bat Masterson, Maverick, Laramie, The Virginian, Temple Houston, Wagon Train, Honey West, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Big Valley, The Name of the Game, Ironside, It Takes a Thief, Love, American Style, Dan August, The F.B.I., Night Gallery, The Streets of San Francisco, Police Story, McCloud, Toma, Cannon, Hawaii Five-O, The Rockford Files, Switch, Barnaby Jones, and other shows.

But, I didn't recognize him. That whole, "Oh, that's the guy that was in that show that time" thing? No, it just didn't happen for me.
Guy's got a real deep, distinctive voice. But I didn't recall it. None of that "Oh, he sounds like that guy that was in that show that time" thing, either.
For some reason, he never made an impression on me. But he made an impression on the ladies. At least, that's what the script writers had going on.
|He's not in The Village and he's not Number Six.|
Secret Agent, Super Dragon is not the worst film MST3K has given the treatment, but it's certainly not the best, either.
|Minsky.||Crow's screenplay for The Spy Who Hugged Me.|
The best invention wasn't in the Invention Exchange. You see, the Bots made a robot for Joel. Only, it didn't do a log. Sort of like all the robot toys that existed when I was a kid. Still, I thought more of it than I did Frank's Virtual Comedy Club or Joel's Micro Golf.

See? Now I'm doing it.
A pretty good episode, just not up to par with the last several ones.
