3.0 out of 5 stars "A Return to the Past Affair"., 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E. [DVD] (DVD)
It's time to get that old retooled and upgraded Walter P38 out of the armoury... well perhaps not. At least one can rekindle fond memories of being a member of the United Network Command for Law & Enforcement fan club, by digging out my old membership card from an even older wallet gathering dust in a bedroom draw. At the same time, thinking about the good old days of Thursday nights on the BBC, where nothing and no one would be able to prise me away from the TV. I never missed an episode of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. In fact the only other member of the family in the living room on a Thursday evening would be my sister. She never missed Top of the Pops, and sometimes she would stay and watch Napoleon and Illya saving the world from T.H.R.U.S.H. and on occasion others who were all set on world wide havoc and mayhem, but more often than not she would disappear to her bedroom.

Having said all of that this particular "affair" does not compare well with the past TV series or indeed the other made for TV films either. Perhaps it's my age, perhaps it's the storyline, which is not I fear on a par with my memories of a brilliant spoof TV series of my mid to late teens. The first years of going out to work for a living. Hence a somewhat middle of the road rating. It's ok but not great. I will keep it in my collection, but it'll be sometime before I watch it again, if ever.
