DVD Talk Review: "The Man from U.N.C.L.E: The Complete Season 1"



Warner Home Video released The Man from U.N.C.L.E. - The Complete Series to DVD back in 2008 but it was mighty pricey then and now. I'd only seen bits and pieces of the series through the years - for some reason it and other MGM-owned shows like The Outer Limits rarely if ever got syndicated in the Detroit market where I grew up - and I didn't dare chance it on a series I wasn't certain I'd like.

Further, the general consensus was that this 1964-68 spy series went downhill in a big way during its third season, having been influenced by the camp and self-parody of the phenomenally if briefly-popular Batman TV show, as well as the ballooning if increasingly silly ‘60s spy craze. (U.N.C.L.E. recovered somewhat for its more serious final fourth season.) Others, like the great pop culture essayist Mark Evanier, loved the show as a child of the ‘60s only to be terribly disappointed upon revisiting it as an adult.
