THE PLOT THUS FAR
Robert Wagner (It Takes A Thief) and Stefanie Powers (The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.) star in Hart to Hart: Season Three, a 24-episode collection of the stylish Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated detective drama. As Jonathan and Jennifer Hart, a wealthy and glamorous couple who always manage to find themselves caught up in mystery and adventure, Wagner and Powers charmed audiences with their lighthearted chemistry and thrilling adventures. Assisting the Harts in their jet-setting life of intrigue, the loyal and gravel-voiced servant Max (Lionel Stander) provided an earthy counterpoint to the elegance of his employers. Together, the three made for a team that viewers found irresistible.
Created by Sidney Sheldon, both a bestselling novelist (Master of the Game, Windmills of the Gods) and hit television producer (I Dream of Jeannie, The Patty Duke Show), Hart to Hart is a smart and sexy detective drama reminiscent of the Thin Man movies as well as modern mystery series such as Castle. Join the Harts on their globetrotting tour of danger and romance with Hart to Hart: Season Three.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Hart to Hart” entered into its fourth season with not much fanfare. The most memorable thing about it is when Amy Poehler and Adam Scott restaged the opening for “The Greatest Moment in TV History”. But, the show had Freeway the dog. That had to count for something. Was that even the dog’s name? Why can’t I be bothered to care?
Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers have amazing chemistry. But, this show was the TV equivalent of an airport novel. Something boring and cheap to pick up for a flight and dump by the time you get back home. There’s nothing of quality, but it passes the time. That’s all that matters.
The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp for an older show. The transfer is sharp enough. The same goes for the Dolby track. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
