The map upon Mr. Waverly's office wall is incorrect in numerous cases. For example, it shows Canada and Newfoundland to be 2 separate states, which they were until 1949. Other errors include the lack of East Pakistan and all of Indo-China is depicted as one nation by the name of 'Siam'. This map appears in various episodes. East Pakistan was founded in the late 1940s, and Siam split up in the 1950s; Siam then became Thailand. See more »
The next harvest is scheduled for the 20th. Today is the 17th. That gives you three days.
Exactly three days; that's a relief. I thought it was going to be a rush job.

Every two-part episodes of this series was re-edited for theatrical release in Europe. Each of these films include scenes filmed especially for theaters, often including additional violence or innuendo, while the TV versions also include scenes not released theatrically. These movies are listed separately in the IMDb. See more »
I know the last user thought the episodes were just average, but you cannot judge very early 60's TV by today's standard and technology. The show was very cool, and so were Napoleon and Illya. Heck, that is why there is still a huge following forty years later.
Yes, the shows look as if they were filmed on back lot. They were. The pace and budget did not allow for on location scenes. Look at old Star Trek and you will see the same limitations.
Many shows were intended to be funny or at least tongue in cheek. The episode with Joan Collins is a riot. The agents are trying to get a low class woman to pass off as a lady. This episode, The Galatea Affair, is a take on My Fair Lady and introduces Noel Harrison as Mark Slate. OF course you will remember that his father had the task of transforming Liza Doolitle in MFL.
Try the very early pairing of Shatner and Nimoy in Project Strigas or The Ultimate Computer Affair, another great MFU episode. There were over 100 of them in this popular 60's show.
