It's a flashback to the 60s and free love baby!
Gregory Abdur Rahman
Stories were vapid, devoid of plot, interesting characters and weak production values even for the time.
Trum
They are great guys I like it that the good guys always win at the end.

Though "The Gazebo in the Maze Affair" and "The Yukon Affair" are something like a two part episode, "The Gazebo in the Maze Affair" appeared in UNCLE's first season while "The Yukon Affair" appeared in UNCLE's second season. If you read on you'll find out why I'm only giving this volume only 3 stars.
Episode 27 "The Gazebo in the Maze Affair": A long time ago, Napoleon and Illya stopped the plan of Squire G. Emory Partridge (George Sanders) to control a small country in South America. Now he wants revenge. He kidnaps Illya and lures Napoleon to his manor in Eastsnout. He captures Napoleon and wants to have Napoleon and Illya convince Mr. Waverly come to Eastsnout to try to bring UNCLE down. They refuse though and Partridge, together with his wife Edith (Jeanette Nolan), torture Napoleon and Illya. Peggy Durance (Bonnie Franklin) helps them escape fortunately. The only thing is, the dungeon is right in the center of a maze in which it is filled with all sorts of deadly traps.* Great episode with a great plot. In the second season of UNCLE, they made it so Partridge returned again, in The Yukon Affair. I definitely prefer this first one with Partridge though. The part when Napoleon, Illya, and Peggy are trying to get out of the maze is really exciting, especially with Partridge, his henchman, and a wolf looking for them.
Episode 43 "The Yukon Affair": Sqire G. Emory Partridge (George Sanders) has returned and has acquired in Alaska a large quantity of Quadrillenium X, a very heavy metal with high magnetic powers which THRUSH wants. Napoleon and Illya are sent there to try to stop him but are immediately captured by Eskimos, but are saved by the chief's daughter Murphy (Tianne Gabrielle). Partridge and his niece Victoria (Marion Thompson) again capture them though.

The first episode is another best from the first season of Man from UNCLE. Gazebo in the Maze Affair is about a man, Emery Partridge who lures Illya and Napoleon to his place to have revenge on when UNCLE had foiled one of his plans to control his own country in South America. The second episode is the Yukon affair, where Partridge returns, this time working for THRUSH to obtain a very rare and heavy metal in the Yukon area. Illya and Napoleon are sent to stop his plans. The first episode is lots of fun with lots of Illya, but the Yukon affair, though very funny, has a very weak plot.

Why 5 stars you may ask? This volume really shows us the dichotomy that existed between the First and Second Seasons of "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." television series. "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." was a great extension of the James Bond cinematic phenomena created in the 60s. "The Gazebo in the Maze Affair" and the follow-up "The Yukon Affair" couldn't be more different in tone. But that's what made this series so dynamic. George Sanders steals both episodes.

This isn't one of the high points in the UNCLE series. The titular computer doesn't act as much more than a McGuffin and the plot is so thin that the writers had to desperately pad out Napoleon Solo walking across a courtyard to fill in screen time. This one needed wither another subplot to carry it or having the producer throw up his hands and change the format to half an hour.

In 1965, Napoleon Solo was one of my TV heroes. Obviously my standards were not very high. Contrived, and incredibly weak plot, unbelieveable and idiotic villians, poor editing, no minimal attempt at a good story line, just a video feed of attratctive women and two men who were teen age girls' crushes of the time. At least the dfemale lead had a nice wardrobe. Someone needs to show Napoleon Solo the right way to handle a pistol. . .

The first show on this video is the sparkling Gazebo in the Maze affair, featuring the talented George Sanders as Squire G. Emory Partridge. This one is a classic example of how good this show was to begin with. The dialogue is crisp, and not to be missed are Jeanette Nolan's wacky Edith Partridge and Leo G. Carroll in biking attire! Written by Dean Hargrove, who should've done more episodes, this one has the kind of dialogue in it that made the show so popular. Illya is kidnapped by the Squire, who has a grudge against UNCLE, and it's Napoleon to the rescue (well, sort of, since he promptly gets captured as well). The classic line from this one is when they are escaping through the maze, while being chased by a gamekeeper and a very large, nasty looking wolf. When the gamekeeper accidentally is attacked by the wolf, Illya murmurs, "bon appetit!" Definitely a keeper!
The second title brings back the squire, minus his wife, for a less clever episode. It's okay, but it definitely lacks the sparkle of the first. However, Illya manages to kiss the cute little Eskimo, and both agents wind up in the hospital. Not as clever or as imaginative as the Gazebo affair, but not as silly as some of the third season episodes, either.

I grew up watching these TV shows. They were much better than anything we have to suffer through now. These had very little "Social Justice" crap in them. These TV shows were fun and entertaining without any ridiculously presented PC. For a buck-ninety-nine the episodes are worth it.
