"The Man from U.N.C.L.E."

At least the first 2 or 3 shows rec'd: hilarious; and the outfits/hair alone are worth it.

"T.H.R.U.S.H. is an orgnization that believes the world should have a two-party system: the masters and the slaves." Need I say, this perfectly describes our current skull+bones regime.

Plus, Solo + Kuryatkin are hot.

The opening of this video is cringe-ful; but it gives an idea.

Note it resembled Star Trek in positing that an agent from a putatively enemy nation (Kuryatkin, from the U.S.S.R.) could collaborate for good. Unfortunately it also resembled Star Trek in imagining women as little more than objects to be rescued for subsequent plunder.

And note how totally the Mission Impossible theme ripped them off.
