In the book, Son of Origins, Marvel Comics editor Stan Lee revealed that the Man From UNCLE TV series was the inspiration for Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD.

Throughout the run of the series there was a large globe of the world used in the UNCLE office. However, it didn't appear to be current as it seemed to be from the middle of WW II. The colors for Europe seemed to reflect the conquests by the Axis powers, as well as the occupation of parts of China and southeast Asia by Japan. See more »

I know the last user thought the episodes were just average, but you
cannot judge very early 60's TV by today's standard and technology. The
show was very cool, and so were Napoleon and Illya. Heck, that is why
there is still a huge following forty years later.
Yes, the shows look as if they were filmed on back lot. They were. The
pace and budget did not allow for on location scenes. Look at old Star
Trek and you will see the same limitations.
Many shows were intended to be funny or at least tongue in cheek. The
episode with Joan Collins is a riot. The agents are trying to get a low
class woman to pass off as a lady. This episode, The Galatea Affair, is
a take on My Fair Lady and introduces Noel Harrison as Mark Slate. OF
course you will remember that his father had the task of transforming
Liza Doolitle in MFL.
Try the very early pairing of Shatner and Nimoy in Project Strigas or
The Ultimate Computer Affair, another great MFU episode. There were
over 100 of them in this popular 60's show.
