This first novel differs from the [[Get Smart|televison series]] in two major ways: the substitution of evil organization [[FLAG]] for [[KAOS]] as its adversary, and the siting of [[CONTROL]] Headquarters in New York City, perhaps due to the fact that the book would had to have been written before the series had started airing and before final details had been nailed down. In fairness, the dialog at the end of the [[Mr. Big (Episode)|pilot episode]] does state that KAOS has been destroyed and, although it is clearly stated that CONTROL Headquarters is in Washington, much of the episode's action takes place in New York. Interestingly, two years later, in Episode #63 "[[The Spy Who Met Himself]]", it is established that CONTROL maintains HQs in several cities, including New York, thus providing some validation after the fact.

This first novel differs from the televison series in two major ways: the substitution of evil organization FLAG for KAOS as its adversary, and the siting of CONTROL Headquarters in New York City, perhaps due to the fact that the book would had to have been written before the series had started airing and before final details had been nailed down. In fairness, the dialog at the end of the pilot episode does state that KAOS has been destroyed and, although it is clearly stated that CONTROL Headquarters is in Washington, much of the episode's action takes place in New York. Interestingly, two years later, in Episode #63 "The Spy Who Met Himself", it is established that CONTROL maintains HQs in several cities, including New York, thus providing some validation after the fact.
