The main character always wears the coolest Oliver Peoples sunglasses.

I would never lose a $400 pair of sunglasses either.

I think the most amazing part of it all is that he never loses them in every episode.

They always teach you why and how you do things in the spy world.
I always need answers to life’s most difficult questions, like:

  • How do I make my car bullet proof simply by using a phone book?
  • How do I interrogate prisoners to get the answers I am looking for?
  • How do you deal with bullet proof cars?
  • How do you create a shape charge to enter a safehouse?
