    I saw in WH Smiths today that they have brought a Man From UNCLE box set. Which looks very nice bit on checking what was the episodes see they are not from the regular series (well they were but they were the two parters that they realised as movies). Which are The Spy With My Face, One Spy Too Many, The Karate Killers, Helicopter Spies, and How To Steal The World.
    Anybody know why thy did not include the best of the movies To Trap A Spy. ?

    I did also note they did not include The Spy With The Green Hat, which I was not to taken with.

    My guess: Volume 2 to follow. There were, in total, 8 feature films. I forget all the titles.

    Mmmmmm not bad for 5 movies albeit TV movies from a TV series. I think The Spy With My Face is the best of the bunch.

    Another guess: Maybe Warners/Turner don't have the rights to the other three.

    Frustrating, though!

    Especially if, some time next year, all 8 come out in a different set, such that you have to buy them ALL again, in order to obtain the missing three.

    hmm tempted (especially for £20) this was my favourite show as a kid, I always wondered why real people didn't have names like that.

    I think they mentioned on the box you could also go to a site and download some other episodes.
    I wonder if they are open to every one ore you need a code of the DVD’s for it. It would be nice to see some of the rarely shown B&W episodes from the first season which were more serious and had more tension rather than the spoof it later became.

    The Man from UNCLE owns :)

    I used to watch it loads when i was little, and i was thinking about buying the boxset the other day 'cos I've been watching Hustle with Robert Vaughn and it brought back all those memories.
