Description

In this hit spoof on the spy genre, Robert Vaughn and David McCallum star as a team of secret agents battling the global crime organization THRUSH. Under the aegis of the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.), the dapper, suave Napoleon Solo (Vaughn) and the equally dashing Illya Kuryakin (McCallum) jet to exotic locations, defending the world from evil, chaos and bad taste. Premiering in 1964, this successful series also starred Leo G. Carroll as Alexander Waverly and featured guest stars such as William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy (of Star Trek fame), Kurt Russell as a young stowaway marked for murder, Ricardo Montelban and longtime comedy favorite Ken Murray. From trying to save the world from fear gas to trying to save themselves from a pack of bloodthirsty cheetahs, this spoof brings the spy game to life with vigor and vibrancy. You may even forget it's in black and white!

The American "James Bond"

Did you know that Ian Fleming came up with the name Napoleon Solo? Did you also know that he gave up any and all rights he might have to The Man from U.N.C.L.E.? All true. If you really want to know what this show is about, see episode 25, "The Never Never Affair" with future agent 99, Barbara Feldon. It is exactly what the show is supposed to be about. One more thing, think about skipping all the other seasons. For some reason color destroyed the ability of the writers of this show to write good scripts. But if you HAVE to, buy just one episode from the season you are thinking about. You'll see why rather quickly. BUT the first season (all 30 episodes) are among the best scripted shows of any year (including up to 2008). Enjoy

Got it on DVD, but am so happy to be able to download it off of iTunes, too!!!

One of my favorite television series of ALL TIMES. A fun spy series, which combined the best thing possible, the wonderful imaginations of the creators and writers of the shows, and the public's need to believe that there was an organization out there fighting for the 'Greater Good' of ALL the world's population. (I have heard stories of people, who in the 1960's, went on the tour of the United Nation's building and asked to see the 'second basement' of the building). At a time when tensions between the U.S.A. and Russia were high, this show broke ground with having an American agent being partnered with a Russian agent. (Apparently, when the pilot episode was viewed, they were told to get rid of the 'chief'--a crude way of meaning the Russian character. Thankfully it was misinterpreted, and they kept Illya Kuryakin!!!) Also, if iTunes continues to list all the seasons of this show, viewers will be able to see a wide range of stars--many of whom are now gone, and others who were just beginning on their rise to stardom. Definitely worth watching!

WOW!!! This is MAJOR!!!

I can't believe that iTunes aquired this series. This is one of the best shows of the sixties, if not all time. I will definitely be acquiring this show. Now if we could get Sea Hunt, Batman, The Green Hornet, The Twilight Zone and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
