  • The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

    The ads for the re-make are running on television as we speak. It appears to be James Bondian, to say the least.

    I thought it was "James Bondian" back in the 1960s when first a TV series.

      BTW - the two main characters are lame, to say the least. Nothing at all like Vaughn and McCallum.

        I see they're placing it in the early 1960s;

          I hope they don't do to the The Man from U.N.C.L.E. what they did to The Sweeney.

          Maybe some things shouldn't be re-done.

            Catch the trailer in the link above. There looks to be no org such as U.N.C.L.E. as in the TV series and Solo/Kuryakin to look to be very freindly with each other. Solo is CIA, Kuryakin KGB, a reluctant alliance towards a common enemy, this is quite different from the TV concepts.

              Maybe they could muck it up like they did with The Avengers when they did that series as a movie...

                Most things should not be remade.

                  I'm surprised that isn't set in the present time. The worst remakes I feel were Starsky and Hutch and the Avengers( not Marvels) but the one with Raplhe Finnes in it.
