Sexist and stupid, 7 July 2004
Author: nimbleweevil from Kentucky

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.
