THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. The Odd Man Affair 1965
This is the 29th episode of 1964 to 1968 spy series, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. The series ran for a total of 105 episodes. The first season was filmed in black and white with the remainder shot in colour. Robert Vaughn plays agent Napoleon Solo while David McCallum plays Illya Kuryakin. Leo G Carroll plays Mister Waverly, the boss of the secret agency known as U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law & Enforcement) Their main enemy is THRUSH, an organization out to take over the planet.
UNCLE agents Vaughn and McCallum are sent to England to stop a meeting of terrorists. The only way for them to infiltrate the meeting is by having former UNCLE agent Martin Balsam pretend to be one of the terrorists.
Balsam though turns out to anything but an expert at the job. It is only with the help of ex O.S.S. agent, Barbara Shelly that the group gain entry to the meeting. One of the terrorists, Ronald Long, is trying to push the group to ally themselves with the Eastern Bloc countries. UNCLE's job is of course to "suggest" that this would not be a good idea.
Long tries to bump off Agent Balsam by planting a plastic explosive device hidden in a small lapel button. Balsam however is warned by Vaughn and switches the bomb back to Long. Long of course sets off the bomb destroying himself and the plan to lead the terrorists to loin the Eastern Powers.
Though by no means a great episode, it still fills the bill as a passable time-waster
