User Reviews

Solid episode of the spy series
4 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the episode begins, we see Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin entering a hotel on the Riviera when they are distracted by a couple of beautiful blond women photographing a vendor. Moments later the man is dead and so starts a struggle between the two agents from U.N.C.L.E and a group of blond Thrush agents for the possession of a formula for a rejuvenating serum. The plot provides a great sandbox for Vaughn and McCallum, and it is their interplay both with each other and the other characters that is the greatest strength of this episode. The story may be a little too campy for those who are not fans of this kind of sixties fare, but those who are fans will enjoy this hour of television.
