If you're looking for a Man from U.N.C.L.E. parody, look somewhere else. This is a parody of that series in name only. Arne Sultan's script has CONTROL getting the help of a top agent (Alan Oppenheimer) from Israel's Y.E.N.T.A. to spot a top KAOS killer who is trying to protect a visiting Arab prince. As such the show is heavily laden with some tired borscht belt kind of jokes that owe a large debt to a series of comic novels written by Sol Weinstein, who parodied James Bond with the adventures of Oy-Oy Seven in "Loxfinger" and "Matzoball" and other similar titles. I love Arne Sultan, but Weinstein did it first and did it better.

The non-YENTA stuff in this episode is actually pretty funny, especially a bit where it appears Max has accidentally killed three CONTROL agents sent to help him, thinking they were KAOS killers. Agent 13 (Dave Ketchem)has some good lines and its nice to have 99 back from "Matchgame" or wherever she went the last three episodes.

In fact if not for the tired and forced YENTA stuff, this would have been a terrific episode. Too bad they didn't do a all-out parody of UNCLE. Both shows were on NBC--they might have gotten some interesting cameos. That might have been a classic.
