Man From U.N.C.L.E.: The Complete First Season (1964 -
1965/Warner DVD Set)
B- Sound: B- Extras: D Episodes: B
the wake of the new film being released, the debut season of the
classic television show The Man From U.N.C.L.E finds it way
onto DVD with this highly collectible season one box set. Spanning
an impressive ten discs, all 29 episodes are included and are a must
for fans of classic television! The critically-acclaimed spy spoof
television series features Robert Vaughn, David McCallum, Leo G.
Carroll and many guest stars in each episode like William Shatner &
Leonard Nimoy and was a landmark in the Spy television genre that
paved the way for Mission Impossible and other great shows.
As a Star Trek fan, it was very cool for me to see Shatner and
Nimoy in a different light on this show as well! The special effects
are fun and some of the plots featuring everything from fear gas to
escaping cheetahs that will keep you on your toes the whole time!

Affair, The Quadripartite Affair.
Two features The Shark Affair, The Deadly Games Affair, The Green
Three features The Giuoco Piano Affair, The Double Affair, and The
Project Strigas Affair.

The Dove Affair.

Gazebo in the Maze Affair.

great performances and interesting writing, the show holds up well
and remains to be a very cool watch. I personally love watching
classic television shows, as you will see from my recent review of
Batman: The Original Series (seen elsewhere on this site) and
other classic programs. Though not on Blu-ray disc yet, the show has
been remastered and looks and sounds as good as the DVD format will
in standard definition with a 1.33:1 full frame aspect ratio and a
lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 track. No extras on this release, but three
more seasons are ahead.
that the new film is being released, this is a great time to dig back
into the old series for the first time or to revisit it. Thanks to
Warner, we have a nice set here that features the episodes in
chronological order and without commercials to get the best
experience possible. Recommended.
