The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E.


The UNITED NETWORK COMMAND for LAW ENFORCEMENT

Agents Napoleon Solo (American) and Illya Kuryakin (Rusian) work for U.N.C.L.E., a secret intelligence service working under the auspices of the U.N. Their immediate superior is Mr. Waverly (British), and they operate out of a secret base beneath the streets of New York City, and accesses through several cover business such as Del Floria's Tailor Shop and the Masque Club.

U.N.C.L.E.'s primary nemesis was THRUSH, an organization dedicated to taking over the world. Like U.N.C.L.E., THRUSH used up-to-date spy equipment and advanced technology to complete its conquest.

The show lasted four seasons, with the third season going a less serious route. After a drastic drop in ratings, the producers went back to a more serious tone but the show didn't last much longer after that. It did inspire one spinoff, The Girl From U.N.C.L.E., and inspired a successful series of novels, comic books, and a reunion movie.

James Bond comes to TV! The adventures of Naploeon and Illya, the Men from UNCLE, were exciting and a breath of fresh air in 1964. A strong comraderie between the two leads (Robert Vaughn & David McCallum) and the wise counsel of UNCLE's #1, Mr Alexander Waverly, always meant the world was in good hands against the evil Thrush.
