TV series “Spies” – starring George Hamilton (1987)

The TV show Spies starred George Hamilton, who was fresh off his run on the very successful show Dynasty. Spies — yes, a show about secret agents — was supposed to combine humor with the drama, and to play on character of the suave, tan star itself. As People magazine said at the time, “George Hamilton is a well-dressed spook who, when he’s shot, worries more about the hole in his suit than the one in his body,” and while not particularly impressed by the episode they reviewed, conceded that the show had “possibilities.”

In the end, though, People’s lackluster review correctly gauged audience reaction to the series: Spies lasted just one short 6-episode season before getting its burn notice. – NJP
