Channel D: 2nd edition, revised and extended


The second edition of Open Channel D: The Man From UNCLE Affair  is on sale at all the Amazon/Kindle virtual stores. The book has been totally revised by collaborator Claudio Poles and the author. And it was expanded to include a new chapter about the motion picture directed by Guy Ritchie in 2015. This is a sample of the new chapter:

The film directed by Guy Ritchie (...) performed poorly at box office, and has only got a reasonable ranking in DVD / Blu-ray rentals. A continuation is uncertain. Which is sad, when we talk about the future of a pop culture myth. The film is remarkable in style, time set, original soundtrack, most of the cast and the action scenes (which have always been the director’s trademark). But at least eight big mistakes have been committed at adapting the series. (That’s, of course, solely this author’s opinion).


1) There’s no UNCLE in The Man From UNCLE - Starting the story before the actual creation of the UNCLE organization was a great idea, and it should be a part of the script. But by irresponsibly and fully disregarding the series’ original concept, the film makes the audience feel cheated. There is no "UNCLE" in a movie called "The Man From UNCLE", except for the very last line, with no much meaning. (...)

Episode 6: The Green Opal Affair


The Man From UNCLE
Episode 6
The Green Opal Affair
Writer: Robert E Thompson
Director: John Peyser
Guests: Carroll O'Connor (Walter Brach), Joan O'Brien (Chris Brinell), May Heatherly (Heather McNabby)
Filmed between: 15 - 22 July 1964
Premiere: 27 October 1964
Place: Honduras (Central America)

David McCallum & Robert Vaughn

Acts:
1 - "... but he's not alive either..."
2 - "... two little kittens..."
3 - "... they may take away our heads..."
4 - "...the human time capsule explodes..."

Carroll O'Connor

The affair:
Inside UNCLE HQ in New York, new agent George Tenley is hallucinating and repeating the words "green opal Brach". Kuryakin finds out that the financier Walter Brach is heading to the Honduras jungle. Disguised, Napoleon Solo gets a job at Brach's office and follows with the team to Central America, where he finds fugitive Chris Linnel threatened by cheetahs. She tells him she used to be a housewife in Bethesda, Maryland (USA) until two days before and didn't know how she had ended up in that jungle. In his base, Walter Brach discloses his plan: brainwashing people to be put at the service of THRUSH. Solo (brainwashed) would be appointed the new head of UNCLE by Brach. Solo applies the serum on Walther Brach. One of THRUSH hunches throws Brach in the lake of sharks.

May Heatherly & Robert Vaughn

FYI: In this episode Illya appears only in the first few minutes and in the last ones. Solo declares he had a father that was a lawyer and caught birds - a reference to his son hunting "thrush". The idea to brainwash Solo was apparently a coincidence: in the same year Ian Fleming wrote his latest James Bond novel, The Man with the Golden Gun, where 007 tries to kill his boss "M" after being brainwashed by the Soviets. But Fleming's book was only released the following year. Illya is kept at UNCLE HQ, replacing Mr. Waverly as a coordinator. Leo G Carroll was still on sick-leave. This was one of the few occasions when a Latin American country is called by its real name.

Crave Preview: Batman ’66 Meets The Man From UNCLE Chapter # 6


Batman and Robin bring Batgirl to the Batcave just in time for an alarming message from UNCLE headquarters!
by Blair Marnell

The crossover that could never happen on TV is taking place in DC’s Digital first comics! While the classic Batman live-action TV series and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. were both on television during the ‘60s, their competing networks made a crossover inconceivable... until now!
Batman ‘66 Meets The Man From U.N.C.L.E. has brought together the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder with their new allies, Agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin for very good reasons. The nefarious organization known as T.H.R.U.S.H. has a new leader, and they’re recruiting some of the most diabolical villains in Batman’s rogue’s gallery.
To stop these evil plans, Batman and Robin have recruited Batgirl for her assistance. In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview from Batman ‘66 Meets The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Chapter # 6, Batgirl arrives in the Batcave and the assembled heroes get a rather nasty surprise. Has the apocalypse already begun?!
