    Overrated and overhyped

    If you like to be scared, if you like to laugh, and if you like to learn a thing or two at the movies, this absolutely cannot be missed.

    Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.

    It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.

    Between the mostly comedic Moonlighting and the dark, gritty crime shows of the 21st century like CSI and Criminal Minds, crime series' like this portrayed the scathing wold of diabolical crime and murder without being too grim and intense, unlike crime shows of the past couple decades. Wagner's Jonathan Hart was a superhero level fighter, and also a refined gentleman, very manly but too humble, dignified, and willing to show his feelings to be macho and Jennifer was just as plucky, self-reliant and quick-witted; the quips and cute jokes made this show much more lighthearted than other crime shows, especially today's. Their laid-back, fun-loving butler gave a good amount of the laughs with his comedic deliveries. They were very wealthy and lived a glamorous lifestyle but didn't lose sight of what mattered in life and wouldn't hesitate to help anybody. Which is why they were amateur detectives in the first place. Their wealth, plucky resourcefulness, and street smarts gave them clearance to go on any caper and often made them targets for the nefarious villains. I have wondered why they never had children, I did think that was somewhat sad: one time there was a young boy who claimed to be Jonathan's son, a situation that came together by one of Jonathan's old loves and an unstable father where they were both very kind, devoted and protective parents who grew attached to the boy in season 1. Another attractive quality of the show is their cute little shaggy dog and how he was written as one of the family and one of the detectives. Most shows don't seem to write animals as that versatile and central to the story unless the show is about the animal. The episodes write suspense together nicely with creepy two-faced characters and setups and the culprits evil deeds and preying so close by all the noble, likable heroes.

    Spoiler warning: Don't get too attached to the Harts' friends. Pretty high mortality count by the end of most episodes!Seriously, it's Nick and Nora Charles Lite, but with Spelling Productions you're expecting something profound or fiendish mystery plot twists? But Spelling always knew how to entertain, and he also had a knack of hiring top acting professionals. The charm and talent of the three leads here (the dog Freeway isn't bad either) is obviously the biggest factor in the show's success. And Spelling did have a knack for great opening sequences, and Hart to Hart is no exception.So if you're looking to unwind from the pressure of a tough day, turning on Cozi or Hallmark Mystery to spend a couple hours with Jennifer and Jonathan and Max wouldn't be your worst choice for diversion.

    The series Hart o Hart is great to watch. I think the power in this TVseries is that the Harts love each other and there butler very much. People like to see that. Its working relaxing. I know that in this series the friends of the family are getting less, but if you watch Jessica Fletcher and more other detective series, you have the same problem. Just enjoy the show. I saw that de McMillan and Wife is coming on DVD too. I hope it will be done with this TVserie also. All episodes are just relaxing to watch. Nice cars, great home lovely people....etc. etc. No, I think it is a good TVseries. Now the next problem is to get this on DVD in Europe. The forget us sometimes .....Ntsuno

    Maybe I'm easily pleased but Hart to Hart was a wonderful show. Perhaps I would only admit to watching it after drinking a huge quantity of beer but it was very watchable indeed.The lovely Stefanie Powers was Jennifer Hart, Robert Wagner was Jonathan Hart. Their butler was Max played by the late Lionel Stander. Together, they travelled around the globe always attracting the attention of the wrong people. There was plenty of action and intrigue but despite all the danger, Jonathan and Jennifer loved each other and everything was held together by their butler Max.It wasn't the best show ever but it'd be hard to find someone who didn't enjoy it.
