Product Description

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. - The Complete Series

Amazon.com

For Baby Boomers, owning a season or two of a fondly remembered TV series on DVD is enough to satisfy any nostalgic yearnings. The Man From U.N.C.L.E., though, warrants the full-series treatment. It's a wild '60s flashback to the Espionage era that was ushered in by Ian Fleming's James Bond adventures. According to a series retrospective that's just one of this cleverly packaged set's prodigious extras, Fleming himself was recruited to create a spy series for American television. His contribution was the name "Napoleon Solo," the moniker of a crime boss in Goldfinger. That movie, which would kick Bond and spy mania into overdrive, had not yet opened when viewers were introduced to Robert Vaughn's Solo and David McCallum's Illya Kuryakin, agents of the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. This covert agency operated out of Del Floria's Tailor Shop in New York under the command of true Brit Alexander Waverly (Leo J. Carroll, playing much the same character he portrayed in North by Northwest). The Man from U.N.C.L.E. offered a bit of hope in Cold War America that an American and Russian could work together to stop a common enemy, THRUSH, a ruthless organization bent on world domination. The intriguing conceit of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was to give audiences an empathetic surrogate who would be plucked from their humdrum lives for whirlwind adventures with Solo and Kuryakin. In the pilot episode, Patricia Crowley guest-stars as a housewife who acts as bait to foil the plans of her former college boyfriend, who is plotting the assassination of a world leader. In a series benchmark, "The Never-Never Affair," a pre-Get Smart Barbara Feldon stars as an U.N.C.L.E. translator who unwittingly becomes involved in actual espionage. Seasons one and two are the series' best, with a stellar roster of guest stars ("The Project Strigas Affair" features the first onscreen pairing of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy), stylish direction by directors who would go on to some renown (Michael Ritchie, Richard Donner), smart scripts, and great action (a movie theatre shoot-out in "The Never-Never Affair"). In its third season, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. adopted Batman's campy and absurdist tone with shark-jumping results While this season has its share of groaners (in one episode, Sollo watusis with a gorilla), several "Affairs" stand out. Jack Palance and Janet Leigh as a long cool woman in a white dress are great villains in "The Concrete Overcoat Affair." Harlan Ellison wrote the witty "The Pieces of Fate Affair," in which he takes some sly digs at television and literary critics (a THRUSH operative is a book reviewer). Joan Collins makes like Eliza Doolittle in a dual role as a Bronx stripper and a countess in "The Galatea Affair." The series went back to basics in Season Four, but by then, The Avengers was a bigger hit and the writing was on the wall for this once trendsetting series. This lavish box set affair contains upward of ten hours of bonus features, including the unaired series pilot, a series retrospective, an interview with a reunited Vaughn and McCallum, dossiers on each season's guest stars, one of the U.N.C.L.E. feature films edited and expanded from a two-part episode, segments about the great gadgets and cool music, U.N.C.L.E. designs and blueprints, and season-specific booklets.This definitive box set does full justice to a series that had such an impact on popular culture (as witness the bonus Tom & Jerry cartoon, "The Mouse From H.U.N.G.E.R."). More than a blast from the past, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is still a potent blend of "cloak and swagger." --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars The Home Stretch Affair . . . August 15, 2008
Format:DVD
Fans had been waiting for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. to come to DVD for years, when Time Life finally released a megaset containing all four seasons (105 episodes) and extensive bonus materials, late in 2007. This boxed set is still currently being sold by Time Life for $249.95. Last week, Amazon was apparently selling this same `briefcase' set at a presale price of $139.95, which was a fabulous buy. This week however, the set is now listed as `unavailable' for preorder, and there is no sales price listed. This is not the first time Amazon has pulled this collection off the shelf. We will soon see what Amazon's price will be. Keep your fingers crossed, Best Buy's presale price for the set is $179.99.

Time Life also had exclusive rights to Get Smart, which is only now beginning to be released to the general public. Fortunately, it appears that the U.N.C.L.E. set will be made available much, much sooner. Rather than wait, I got my set through a private sale some months ago. It is a very attractive collection, and while the cardboard briefcase packaging is pretty cool, you may not want to test its durability, as 41 DVD's do weigh quite a bit. Each season is arranged in a separate binder, that can easily be stored like a normal multi DVD set. Two bonus discs are in cardboard sleeves. The photo of the contents of the set is a bit misleading, as some items are shown more than once.

Image and sound quality is very good for a program of this age, and all the episodes are subtitled. Series creator Norman Felton's original concept was to bring a James Bond like character to American television. He even consulted with Bond creator Ian Fleming in the development of the series, and it was Fleming that supposedly came up with the name `Napoleon Solo'.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Why not on DVD Affair" February 28, 2004
Format:DVD
The Man from UNCLE was the first and at times the best secret agent TV show on during the sixties.Cashing in on the James Bond craze of the mid sixties it went from cult show to top of the ratings in 1965 to losing it's focus on what made the show great
and eventual cancellation in January 1968.If you weren't around during this time believe me this show was much more popular than Star Trek. If this show had continued in reruns on syndication and promoted the way Paramount promoted Star Trek in the last 35 years we would be talking about UNCLE the Next Generation and UNCLE the Motion Picture. The only reason I can think of why all of the episodes (over 100) are not on DVD along with the inferior spinoff Girl from UNCLE is the poor management history of MGM who own the rights. If they are reading this why don't you put these out as soon as possible and generate yourself some cash revenues. You might want to tie-in David McCallum now on CBS's Navy NCIS with the promotion.Oh by the way Star Trek fans I wasn't putting it down I was just stating the facts and what can happen when something fans care about is promoted (Star Trek) or ignored (UNCLE).
I am updating my review from early 2004. At the time, I believed that MGM had the legal rights to "The Man from UNCLE" but learned that was no longer the case. That is not surprising with the long history of bad business practises MGM has had over the last thirty years. Norman Felton the producer of the show believed that he held those rights and hired Ember Entertainment to represent him. Plans had been made to release the first season set of DVD`s at the end of July 2006. When that was announced Warner Home Entertainment jumped in and stopped the release claiming they own the rights since they had acquired MGM .
