After a deadly plague kills most of the world's population, the remaining survivors split into two groups - one led by a benevolent elder and the other by a maleficent being - to face each other in a final battle between good and evil.
This spinoff from "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." features the adventures of sexy spy April Dancer, who works for an international agency called the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement, which is dedicated to protecting the world from evil doers such as those who work for THRUSH. April's sidekick is the Brit Mark Slate, and their boss is the crusty Mr. Waverly. Written by

Leo G. Carroll, by appearing as Waverly in both UNCLE shows, became one of the first actors in the history of TV to play the same continuing character in more than one series. See more »
The map upon Mr. Waverly's office wall contains numerous errors. Among these are the depiction of Canada and Newfoundland as two separate states, the omission of East Pakistan, and the conglomeration of all the states of Indo-China into a country named Siam. This map appears in numerous episodes. See more »

Even by the standards of the 1960s, "The Girl from U.N.C.L.E" is synonymous to me with "bad spin off." "The Man from U.N.C.L.E", a fun and intelligent '60s spy show, did not deserve this kind of treatment. Is it any wonder, after viewing it, that the famous female spy of this decade was Emma Peel from The Avengers and not April Dancer?
The lead character, played reasonably well by Stephanie Powers, is April, the first female spy from agency U.N.C.L.E. This sounds typical and fun, if a bit cheesy, but the problem is that April is the Nancy Drew of television characters. Almost every episode ends with April being rescued from evil people by her male partner, Mark Slate. This not only begins to get boring after a while, but it makes April an unsympathetic ditz. Even worse, the plot line of quite a few episodes revolves around April ALMOST GETTING MARRIED to a BAD GUY!!! Of course, the heroic, manly Mark Slate will come by to rescue her at the last minute from this TERRIBLE FATE!!!!
Sure, there is such a thing as a good spin off. This isn't it. Leave this one to collect dust in the corner, and watch the original series.
