The Man from U.N.C.L.E - Complete Series

( 7 )

Overview

For a lot of years, from the 1980's until around 2007, the TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (1964-1968) had a frustrating history on home video. The program, which kicked off a wave of breezily-paced spy series (I Spy etc.), was available on a limited basis on VHS tape in the 1980's, and -- restricted to a narrow sliver of mostly poorly chosen episodes -- on laserdiscs in the 1990's. It was originally supposed to appear on DVD in 2005, but then a dispute broke out between the owners of the series, Warner Home ...

Overview

For a lot of years, from the 1980's until around 2007, the TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (1964-1968) had a frustrating history on home video. The program, which kicked off a wave of breezily-paced spy series (I Spy etc.), was available on a limited basis on VHS tape in the 1980's, and -- restricted to a narrow sliver of mostly poorly chosen episodes -- on laserdiscs in the 1990's. It was originally supposed to appear on DVD in 2005, but then a dispute broke out between the owners of the series, Warner Home Video, and a production company claiming that it had the DVD rights to the series. By that time, series star Robert Vaughn had even done some work for the alleged rights holder, in terms of interviews, and the whole mess ended up in court, where it was sorted out in 2007. And now we have this set -- originally available only through Time Warner -- 41 DVDs containing the complete run of the series, appended with a pair of contemporary feature film adaptations of the show, plus a ton of bonus features. It's enough to keep even those with lots of time on their hands busy for months. The film-to-video transfers are generally first-rate, although surprisingly, the oldest programs -- the black-and-white first season episodes -- are far more consistent and satisfying than the three seasons (well, two-and-a-half seasons) of color episodes that follow. It's difficult to say for certain, without having been at the transfer sessions, but the clarity of the full-screen (1.33-to-1) transfers seems to show up some of less satisfying elements of the color photography on the later episodes (except where color scheme was an essential component of a shot or scene). In one second season episode, the second unit footage of Swiss and Italian locales looks superb here, whereas the actual scene photography seems flat and dullish by comparison. In fairness, one must concede that color television shooting was relatively new in the years 1965-66, and even beyond -- it was also horrendously expensive by the standards of the time, which often resulted in corners (or attention to detail) being cut in some instances, even on hit series. And it should also be said, in regard to the photographers involved, that no one in 1965 could ever have conceived of the notion that anyone would be examining their work on this series on this level, in digital video, in 2009; at the time, they probably figured that if the stuff was rerun for as few as a half-dozen times, that would be pushing their useful shelf life. That said, within the limitations of what was done originally with the shooting, these episodes look as good as they ever did, and likely ever will. And the sound, for a change on a collection of this size, is good and loud, enough so that this reviewer had to cut the volume on his monitor, a concession that he seldom is forced to make. Each episode gets seven chapters, corresponding to the commercial breaks and other pauses in the original configuration of the shows. And each disc opens quickly to an easy-to-use dual-layer menu, offering individual episode and bonus-feature access. And that brings us to the supplements and bonuses. If you are -- or were -- an U.N.C.L.E. fanatic (as this reviewer was in 1964), the interviews with Robert Vaughn and David McCallum will prove delightful as well as informative and engaging; they look as though they're having fun doing this, as do directors Joseph Sargent and Richard Donner, and the other crew members interviewed (and it turns out that a surprisingly large part of the crew turned up as extras and in bit roles throughout the run of the series). And some of the documentaries on the guest stars and different aspects of the making of the series are informative as well. But when we get to the guy who runs the Man From U.N.C.L.E. museum exhibit, it starts to get a little scary -- that exhibit and presentation may be a little too intense and obsessive for the more casual fans of the series (which, in all honesty, lost much of its appeal and a lot that made it special in its third season, from which it never recovered). On the other hand, the wonderfully detailed Jon Burlingame-hosted featurette on the music from The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is as valuable documentary as you could have on any aspect of the series' production. The key bonus features for most viewers, however, will probably be the original full-length unaired pilot episode Solo (in color), and the feature-length release One Spy Too Many, plus the Tom & Jerry cartoon parody The Mouse From H.U.N.G.E.R.. As to the packaging, this is one of the pleasant surprises about the set. It's elaborate -- the 41 discs are housed in four slipcased units that fit into a 1960's-style spy attache case (with a secret compartment for the two bonus DVDs); and it's all easy to use, amazingly enough. Some of the discs don't come off of their spindles very easily, and one would want to be careful removing each the first time; but this is an amazingly simple-to-use set, given its size and contents, and not remotely the chore to open that many other recent "deluxe" DVD set are. The other pleasant surprise in the weight -- this is amazingly easy to carry, as the makers have not weighed it down with any massive photo books or other paraphernalia; the episode information is contained in small but mostly readable pamphlets (though whoever thought of using black lettering on a dark red background for the Season Two booklet should probably be taken off of projects like this), which fit into the back of the appropriate slipcase for its season. As to whether it's worth the asking price . . . one has to make these judgments for oneself, based on circumstances. But there are over 100 episodes in this set (three to a platter), and all of the first season and most of the second season material is first-rate; the third season is less so, thanks to an over-emphasis on humor; but the abbreviated fourth season snapped the show back to its more serious origins. So for sake of argument, that's well over 100 episodes to choose from, and even if half of the second season isn't quite up to standard, that's still close to 100 shows that are -- or something less than $2 an episode, depending upon where one gets this and how much one pays for it (as this reviewer did, incidentally). And that's not a bad bargain, especially considering the bonus features offered with it -- just seeing the unaired pilot film Solo was a revelation for this reviewer, especially as one gets to compare it here with the aired version of the first episode.

    IT'S JUST FUN!

    Here is a great throwback to another era of television drama! Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when a television "season" ran to 39 episodes, an hour of TV gave you at least 54 minutes of story, and a script could be written with wit and intelligence, and not have to apologize for being smart. And did I mention that THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. is great fun at the same time? Throughout the span of its four-season run, THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. was what it was: it was better than average entertainment, and it was definitely a paradigm of its time. The good guys were dedicated and virtuous (and a little naughty), the bad guys were villanous and completely despicable, the good guys always won and the bad guys always lost. It begs the question: How did C.H.A.O.S. survive all this goodness, but that's a question for another time. The two heroes, Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuryakin (deftly played by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum), were not just scaled down models of James Bond. Yes, they were clever and resourceful (can you think of a 1960's TV hero who wasn't?), but they were also believeable and completed their assignments with alactity and aplomb. How could you NOT like these guys? How could you not cheer them on week after week? If the stories were a little silly, even by 1960's standards, who cared? U.N.C.L.E. reinforced what was good and decent about ourselves at a time in our history when the threats our entire way of life faced were real. Still, the series wears its years well. Like a good wine, it seems to have matured since it's been in the vault, so uncork a season, pop in a disc, watch a few episodes, and transport yourself to a time of well-written, highly entertaining TV drama that didn't try to be more than it was. Yes, there are many complete sets of TV shows across the spectrum of entertainment, but there are very few that caught the tenor of their time as well as did THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. And did I mention that the series is a lot of fun?!!?

    Blast from the past!

    Even after 45 years the episodes are still fun to watch. The early tech foreshadows cell phones even before the communicators of Star Trek....
