Mr. & Mrs. Smith is an action thriller series created by Francesca Sloane, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Donald Glover. It stars Donald Glover and Maya Erskine.

“Mr. & Mrs. Smith” is Prime Video’s new bet to prepare for Valentine’s Day. This time, it follows the movie starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The series features two new protagonists, Donald Glover and Maya Erskine, who have a different starting point from the movie: they don’t know each other, they are a newly recruited spy couple, and they will have to face exciting situations.

The series has a similar premise to the movie, but it is more comedic and has some very funny moments.

The second episode introduces John Turturro and his peculiar obsession with puppies, which is quite entertaining.

Plot

Two individuals, unaware of each other’s existence, find employment at a covert intelligence organization promising a life of intrigue, prosperity, global exploration, and a luxurious residence in Manhattan. However, there’s a caveat: they must assume new identities and enter into an arranged matrimony as Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Smith. As husband and wife, John and Jane navigate perilous missions while also facing the challenges posed by their blossoming relationship. The intricacy of their cover story intensifies when genuine emotions begin to develop. Which poses the greater risk: espionage or matrimony?

About the series

It is a series with less action than expected, more comedy, and a romantic touch that will surely please romantic viewers. The premise is not new: mixing already established genres and creating something relatively new.

“Mr. & Mrs. Smith” is not innovative in its premise (it doesn’t even seem to try, given its title), but it stands out in terms of pace and script: it is not a crazy spy series or a romantic series, but it has elements of both and, with good touches of humor, it reaches the desired point without drawing too much attention.

It is a series that takes its time in developing its characters, it is more intimate and romantic than one would expect, and it has a smooth pace in some moments. The two main characters are always portrayed from their sensitive and intimate sides.

It is a good series on Prime Video that adds to its family entertainment catalog without trying to shock or offend anyone.

“Mr. & Mrs. Smith” knows how to please and charm, without surprising.
