Definitely better, but...
12 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode starts Season 4 on a much better note than the previous one! Season 3 was for the most part just awful.

Summit-five is the annual meeting of the worldwide UNCLE heads and has been put in jeopardy due to a double-agent in their midst (not one of the heads) who may expose it's whereabouts and time to THRUSH who would of course kill them all and rule the world!

I won't go into the plot in too much detail but is pretty standard stuff. Illya and Solo get taken captive and a la James Bond get sent down an elevator into poisonous gas to kill them...which does not work, amazingly enough.

The (spoiler ahead!!!!!!) four heads of UNCLE who are to be killed are marched out onto a wooden bridge so three guys with submachine guns can kill them from 150 feet or so away! Surprisingly enough they are saved at the last second.

I may sound cynical and probably watch too much of these programs but it never fails to amaze me that they don't simply shoot (or attempt to) Solo/Illya/Four heads immediately (they could have killed one or two of the other Heads as no one would probably ever notice). I DO enjoy the show so I will keep watching!
