The Nude BombEdit
It is misleading to try and wedge "The Nude Bomb" into proper "Get Smart" continuity. It is clearly a separate reality and should be treated as such.Darth Prefect (talk) 13:45, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
- You really think it makes more sense that Max somehow split up with 99, went to work for a different agency, then got back together? That makes more sense than a separate continuity? What about Larabee? Per: "Get Smart Again", he was in the Control offices since Nixon was president, yet he's in "The Nude Bomb". It just doesn't work. Nor should it. The producers of the movie ignored the history of the show and the producers of the TV Movie and subsequent series ignored "The Nude Bomb". It clearly does not fit and was not meant to.

There are inconsistencies within the original series as well. You just have to work with what you have. And, yes, I do think it makes more sense than having two Maxes in alternate timelines. It's a fifteen year gap; anything could have happened in that time.--ChrisAU (talk) 16:46, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
- Fan theories should have no place on this wiki. The creators' intent is clear. In this day and age, with reboots and alternate realities galore, that makes a lot more sense than believing that the Max and 99 we know from television would ever break up, even for the shortest period of time.

I'm not so sure the intent is clear. Yes, there were departures from the series but I highly doubt that it was their intention to create a new, completely different character. (And 99 was on the point of leaving him in one episode.) But I think there's room for some compromise. I've left The Nude Bomb as a separate listing on the Main Page but I've changed the heading to "Feature film". Also, I've added notes (and a link) on several pages acknowledging the disagreement. If you wish, please do write an article elaborating on your objections. More points of view can only improve the overall result. Of course, the wording of the link doesn't need to be the title of the article.
