HART TO HART: THE COMPLETE SERIES REVIEWED
“Hart to Hart” was a show that always seemed to be on when I was a kid. People younger than me might remember it from the Adam Scott opening credits recreation. But, he chose to target Season 4 instead of Season 3. It’s not like there was a ton of difference. It’s still a show about rich people doing whatever they want with their dog and their manservant. Hell, Batman should’ve showed up just to complete the Rich Bastard Fiction Trifecta.
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.
Watching all five seasons of the show at one time is pretty impressive. Impressive in the sense that it plays like the longest pilot that will never end. The Harts never grow, but they also don’t have any real adversity. They just exist on this continual loop of discovering weird shit on what seems like a prolonged rich people spree. Your parents will love this. Hell, they probably still want to name their dog “Freeway”.
