Trivia

Rather than build a set for the UNCLE headquarters, the production used the office building of the production company. This was to save money on building that would not get enough usage if the pilot did not 'go to series', which is exactly what did happen. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the opening gambling sequence, the guard grabs Andrea Markovitch, slaps her, then rears back to slap her again. Solo grabs his arm and gives the guard a little slap. This must be Hollywood's way of trying to reduce violence on TV because the original Napoleon Solo would have slugged the guard with his fist. See more »

Everyone's favorite UNCLE
7 February 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Back when the old Man From UNCLE series was going I thought it was a radical concept. Here we had as the top agents an American and a Russian in an agency run by a British man to the manor born all cooperating against a conspiracy to rule the world headed by some evil folks. Detente a generation ahead of its time.

Leo G. Carroll has passed on, but the United Network Command for Law Enforcement has another titled Britisher in Patrick MacNee heading it. A master criminal Anthony Zerbe has escaped and who better than the two guys who borough Zerbe in back in the day to get him.

So Robert Vaughn and David McCallum are recruited from the lives they now lead, Vaughn as Las Vegas gambler and McCallum as fashion kingpin. Zerbe has also stolen a thermonuclear bomb and plans to blow it up unless he gets a hefty sum of cash. UNCLE's nemesis THRUSH is back in action.

It was nice to see Vaughn and McCallum back in their old roles. Hard to believe that the kindly old medical examiner from NCIS was something of a teenage heartthrob back in those days, but The Man From UNCLE gave McCallum some short lived bubblegum popularity.

I can see why this version failed though, it tried for satire and fell on its face. No wonder this was not picked up to revive the series
