Noticed that a few people have been talking about The Man from U.N.C.L.E. TV show now that it's been released on DVD this week. I should check out that DVD, it was a terrific show.
Everyone is saying now, though, how cheap and cheesy it looks compared to how they remember it. They have a point. But I remember seeing this show on CBC in reruns late at night, and also on YTV, and thinking it was cheesy THEN.
Seems to me this show fit right in with Batman and the rest of these Sixties TV shows -- it was kind of tongue in cheek.
Anyway, thought I would provide some Man from U.N.C.L.E. links here and here. Also, here's the open for The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. starring Stefanie Powers.
