Mr. & Mrs. Smith review: The rare reboot that gets it right

The journey to bring Prime Video’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith to the small screen was fraught with challenges, including major recasting and a two-year delay. Despite these obstacles, the series, developed by Donald Glover and Francesca Sloane, surpasses expectations. Glover and Maya Erskine’s chemistry as the titular characters is undeniable, adding depth to the reboot while paying homage to the original.

John and Jane Smith, two strangers forced into a marriage by a mysterious spy agency, navigate their new relationship amidst thrilling spy missions. The show cleverly blends adventure-of-the-week stories with overarching relationship dynamics, creating a compelling narrative that keeps viewers engaged. Erskine’s portrayal of Jane’s composed yet enigmatic nature contrasts beautifully with Glover’s portrayal of John’s blend of caretaker and romantic.

While Mr. & Mrs. Smith excels in character development and humor, it could benefit from deeper exploration of the espionage aspect and the agency they work for. The season finale sets up intriguing possibilities for future seasons, promising more revelations and action-packed adventures.

Overall, Mr. & Mrs. Smith is a refreshing reboot that successfully revitalizes the beloved franchise with a modern twist. With its stellar performances and clever storytelling, the series is sure to captivate both fans of the original film and new audiences alike.
