Editorial Reviews

It was the height of the Cold War, a time when most Americans had only the vaguest understanding of international espionage. Then, in 1964, the televised spy genre exploded on the screen in the U.S. and around the world when the groundbreaking series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. pulled the covers off of the spy game in what became must-watch television for the next four years on NBC. Here is The Man From U.N.C.L.E.: The Complete Series, beautifully packaged in a 60's style high tech attach' case, complete with all episodes along with hours of viewing extras.

The Men from U.N.C.L.E. have to deal with the small fry in the two episodes on Volume 3. "The Deadly Toys Affair" (Episode #37, November 12, 1965), gets off to a fun start as a defecting Thrush scientist warns Mr. Waverly of a project by the bad guys to use poison gas. However, the scientist runs off to Switzerland to rescue his son (Jay North!) from a boarding school run for Thrush by Angela Lansbury. Solo and Kuryakin show up to try and save both the boy and his father from Thrush. Written by Robert Hill, "The Deadly Toys Affair" was directed by John Brahms. "The Minus-X Affair" (Episode #58, April 8, 1966), has guest star Eve Arden as Thrush scientist Lillian Stemmler, who has the "Plus-X" serum which heightens the senses and increases the intelligence. Stemmler also has created "Minus-X," which makes people revert to the level of children. Wackiness ensues as you might imagine. An excellent story from writer Peter Allan Fields with a less than happy ending, this episode was directed by Barry Shear. A couple of above average episodes from the Sixties spy spoof series.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Second Season Episodes! September 23, 2001
"The Deadly Toys Affair" and "The Minus X Affair" is my favorite second season episodes besides "The Foxes and Hounds Affair", "The Discotheque Affair", and "The Dippy Blonde Affair".
Episode 38 "The Deadly Toys Affair": THRUSH plans to use Bartlett Warshowsky (Jay North), a boy genius, for its own purposes. When Elfie Von Donck (Angela Lansbury), an eccentric movie star, assumes the boy's custody, THRUSH agent Noubar Talemakian (Arnold Moss) convinces her that Bartlett will do better to go to a non-American school, though he purposely forgets to tell her that the school he will be enrolled in is controlled by THRUSH. UNCLE sends Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) posing as a toy salesman, and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum), posing as a hairdresser to Joanna Lydecker (Diane McBain), to help Bartlett escape out of THRUSH's grasp. * This is a very fun and exciting episode with plenty of both Vaughn and McCallum. Angela Lansbury is perfect for the part of the movie star with her very strong foreign accent. Diane McBain is also wonderful as Illya's employer who has a crush on him. My favorite part is where Illya makes Joanna shut up by kissing her and where they escape out of the cooling storage.
Episode 58 "The Minus X Affair": When Professor Lillian Stemmler (Eve Arden) invents a drug called Plus X, which enhances all of the human senses, Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin are assigned to protect her. What they don't know is that she is actually working for THRUSH and though and first willingly, is now having second thoughts. To ensure her cooperation in having the drug infiltrate a U.S. govenment plutonium plant, THRUSH agent Rollo (Theodore Marcus) kidnaps her daughter, Leslie (Sharon Farrell).

4.0 out of 5 stars The Deadly Toys Affair/The Minus-X Affair August 5, 2000
I just recently joined the wonderful world of andthis was my first purchase. I think you will really enjoy these two episodes. The Deadly Toys Affair is about a boy genius that Thrush wants to get their hands on. It has some very good scenes involving Illya(aka David McCallum) fighting with a Thrush guy and a scene where he has to kiss a girl to shut her up! The Minus-X Affair is about a Thrush scientist who has invented a drug called Plus-X that enhances a persons five sences. She also invents the drugs counterpart Minus-X, which turns a normal adult into a babbling five-year-old. One of the cutest scenes in this episode involve Napoleon. He has to pretend that he has been injected with the drug and is singing these little nursery songs in a little cute voice! Both of these episodes are good and if you are a Man From Uncle fan you'll want to add this tape to your collection! Its a winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Napoleon and Illya are GREAT! February 16, 2001
By A Customer
Verified Purchase
I loved the Deadly Toys and Minus X Affair! Illya and Napoleon are great and I love Angela Lansbury as the actress, Elfie Von Donck. I love the first part in the Deadly Toys affair where Illya and Napoleon have to blow up the plant. I also like it when Joanna follows Illya to the school. My favorite parts in the Minus X Affair is where Illya infiltrates the plutonium plant and where Napoleon pretends to be drugged with the Minus X!
