    I have to go with Sydney Bristow from Alias. It was cool to see a female spy, I loved her disguises, and the mysteries on the show were so interesting.

  2. Laiq on August 2nd, 2010 1:46 pm

    So sad I cannot enter, damn not being in the USA

  3. Tricia on August 2nd, 2010 1:52 pm

    TECHNICALLY he’s not a “spy” per say, but he worked for the CIA just the same. MARSHALL from ALIAS. He was smart, sly and extremely intelligent. Alias is definitely becoming a cult classic and his comic timing/relief definitely helps!

  4. Olddarth on August 2nd, 2010 2:04 pm

    Showing my age but no tops Sean Connery as Bond, James Bond.

  5. AJ on August 2nd, 2010 2:04 pm

    Harrison Ford’s Jack Ryan though I love Sidney Bristow & Piper Perabo’s Annie Walker too…

  6. Strunkette on August 2nd, 2010 2:06 pm

    I know it will be on here a lot but Sydney Bristow. “ALIAS” is still my favorite show of all time. The pilot episode was absolutely fantastic and still one of the best ever. It is crazy how obsessed I was with the show and everything about it.

    “Covert Affairs” is one my favorite new shows. Not just for being a tiny bit of the old ALIAS but for bring Chris Gorham back to my tv in a role I love! I feel that Piper Perabo has finally found a role that suits her really well. I’m really digging this show and hope more people watch.

    Does Jason Bourne count? He was spy-ish. If not then I’d say Sydney Bristow from alias to make things simple.

    WWJBD = What would Jason Bourne do!?

  8. Jules on August 2nd, 2010 2:25 pm

    I have to say I really love Jason Bourne from the Bourne movie series. The movies touch on his former life as a CIA assassin, but mostly about who he was and what was going on with his former life was always entertaining to me and these type of action movies never got me before until this one. Plus Matt Damon is pretty hot. 🙂

  9. Don on August 2nd, 2010 2:35 pm

    I gotta say the Saint. Simon Templar was the best…he just didn’t give a frak about what other people thought and did the right thing.

  10. Shannon on August 2nd, 2010 2:37 pm

    Well I’m going to be a total geek right now and say that my favorite spy is the one that first got me interested in spies to begin with and that would be ‘Harriet the Spy’ from the original books not the movie.

    After that my favorite adult spy has to be a toss up between Sydney Bristow (Jen Garner from ‘Alias’) and now Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie from SALT)!

  11. makila on August 2nd, 2010 2:47 pm

    How about a burnt spy? jeffery donovan from burn notice.

  12. Maggie on August 2nd, 2010 2:55 pm

    I know I’m not original in this thought, but Sydney Bristow from Alias was amazing, even when her plots were totally wackadoodle (but what’s a good spy show without unreal situations?).

  13. Ele on August 2nd, 2010 3:05 pm

    Hmmmm. This is a really tough question…..

    I think I’m gonna have to go with Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond.

  14. Lori Smith on August 2nd, 2010 3:09 pm

    I would have to say Magnum PI, Tom Selleck is great!!!

  15. David Wade on August 2nd, 2010 3:21 pm

    That would have to be “Matt Helm”. Despite Dean Martin’s attempt at making Matt something he never was, the original books have not yet been made into a credible movie, (although Leo DiCaprio is supposedly attempting to do that as we speak.)

    Matt Helm, from Santa Fe, New Mexico, written by Donald Hamilton.

  16. Lorrie on August 2nd, 2010 3:26 pm

    My all time favorite spy is Sydney Bristow from Alias. Even if the stories were a little out there.

  17. CandyMaize on August 2nd, 2010 3:39 pm

    I’m really enjoying Covert Affairs … but all-time favorite spy? Going to have to go classic and say James Bond.

  18. Katrina on August 2nd, 2010 3:57 pm

    Favorite spy of all time? Sydney Bristow, hands down.

  19. Caitlin on August 2nd, 2010 4:20 pm

    My favorite spy is from a new book series I found written by Brett Battle, the main characters name is Jonathon Quinn, and he also has some awesome spy partners.

  20. Huei Ming on August 2nd, 2010 4:23 pm

    My favorite spy of all time would have to be Severus Snape (from the Harry Potter Series). He’s my favorite spy (and double agent) for several reasons. However, the main reason he is my favorite spy is because he was a spy out of love and he always kept his loyalties true to Dumbledore. 🙂

    *he also wouldn’t be my favorite spy because he’s from Harry Potter and I’m obsessed…. psh…. that couldn’t possibly be it….

  21. Maria E. on August 2nd, 2010 4:28 pm

    I do love me some spies… Michael Westen, Sydney Bristow, Bryce Larkin, Auggie Anderson…

    But I’m gonna have to go with a classic here. My favorite would have to be Sean Connery’s James Bond.

  22. Stephanie P. on August 2nd, 2010 4:45 pm

    It’s hard to pick one so I’m gonna go with one probably no one else will mention: Bruce Boxleitner’s Lee Stetson from Scarecrow & Mrs. King. I’m too young to have watched when the show was originally on, but I grew up watching it in syndication. Love it still!

  23. EL on August 2nd, 2010 4:58 pm

    Before Bond, before Bourne, there was Robert Culp’s Kelly Robinson and Bill Cosby’s Alexander Scott. ‘I Spy’ defined the spy game for a whole generation of post-World War II spyficinados. Throw in the tight knife-leg trousers and the hot tennis whites on the court and baby, you got yourself a Great Game.

  24. Emily on August 2nd, 2010 5:25 pm

    I’d have to say Annie from Covert Affairs. Quite simply because it’s the only spy type show I’ve watched – no James Bond, no Alias, etc. But Covert Affairs caught my attention from the previews, and I’ve been hooked since episode one.

  25. Tammy R on August 2nd, 2010 6:24 pm

    ” wow all the answers so far take me back, ive enjoyed all of them, but my favorite of all time will allways be Sean Connery-“Bond,James Bond, and now Burn Notice i wont miss an episode! “Covert Affairs so far very enjoyable!

  26. K on August 2nd, 2010 10:39 pm

    My favorite is from Alias too, but not the spy everyone’s been picking so far. I have to go with Irina Derevko. Lena Olin was fantastic on the show, and her character added a great additional level to the series. Plus, she pretty well bested every other spy she encountered.

  27. Lynn on August 2nd, 2010 10:59 pm

    James Bond, baby!

  28. Natasha on August 3rd, 2010 12:07 am

    SpyDaddy, aka Jack Bristow on Alias. He was just an all-around awesome bad-ass.

  29. Montsinya on August 3rd, 2010 1:02 pm

    Sydney Bristow is the queen and she’ll always be, but I’m going retro and giving props to both Scarecrow and Mrs. King.

  30. Casey on August 3rd, 2010 2:54 pm

    I’m going to go with the Not a Spy -Spy- Not a Spy- Then a Spy again himself, Chuck Bartowski. He may not always consider himself a spy, but the fact that he has spy secrets imbedded in his brain makes him a spy in my book!

  31. Kyle on August 3rd, 2010 4:24 pm

    Just to be different, I’ll say Agent Cody Banks 🙂

  32. Brett on August 3rd, 2010 4:32 pm

    As far as TV goes…Sydney Bristow, Chuck Bartowski, Scarecrow (and Mrs. King).

    One often overlooked and under-appreciated movie spy… Michael Corben (aka Richard Grieco in “If Looks Could Kill”) which just happens to co-star Burn Notice’s very own Gabrielle Anwar. (BTW this movie really needs a blu-ray release.)

    Back on topic, I’m really digging Covert Affairs too!

  33. Jillian on August 3rd, 2010 5:29 pm

    Sydney Bristow! Because she had a fabulous assortment of undercover wigs! Oh… and she was a lovely mix of tough and tender. 🙂

  34. CJ on August 3rd, 2010 7:51 pm

    Sydney Bristow, my girl rocked!

  35. Linda on August 3rd, 2010 11:16 pm

    I have to say my current fave is Annie on Covert Affairs. But I have other favorites too like Sarah on Chuck. I guess I like women who can pack a punch! Makes me feel my gender can be powerful and kick some butt!

  36. Grant on August 4th, 2010 12:19 am

    Michael Westin

    By far the best spy.

  37. Dawn on August 4th, 2010 5:04 pm

    I’ve got to go with 007. Though when I read Casino Royale, I found James Bond to be kind of douchey, so only movie Bond!

  38. Elizabeth on August 6th, 2010 1:19 pm

    What about Tony Almeida? He was one of my favorite original characters on 24, and when he went rouge, I was hooked. It ended kind of lamely for him, but still a great character!

    Other then that, hands down, John Casey from Chuck. He’s got some of the best one-liners and he’s a serious spy who is seriously hilarious.

  39. Amanda Johnson on August 6th, 2010 5:42 pm

    Sydney Bristow because she was a girl and was smart. She helped me get addicted to serialized TV

  40. eleanor rea on August 16th, 2010 9:47 pm

    i love this show i watch all of them even if i have to record them

  41. Merle on October 10th, 2014 5:25 pm

    Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Many thanks,
    However I am going through troubles with your RSS.
    I don’t know the reason why I am unable to subscribe
    to it. Is there anybody else having similar RSS issues? Anyone that knows the answer will you kindly respond?

  42. Rosie on August 17th, 2015 4:37 pm

    It has to be Amanda King. Actually, she would be the perfect spy . . . the type that people would underestimate, let alone suspect of being a spy. And she has brains and intuition, as well.

  43. new technology products on September 20th, 2015 7:31 am
