I am rather pleased to discover that the powers that be are about to release the complete series of The Man from UNCLE on DVD for the first time. This is a show I’ve read much about over the years and have wanted to see much more of, but over here it’s only the compilation movies that tend to get shown on TV. And even they don’t get shown that often — I’ve not seen one for over twenty years. The most I ever knew about the adventures of Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin when I was a kid was a single UK hardcover annual that reprinted one of the Gold Key issues, along with several inferior text stories.

No word on price yet–I’m sure it’s not gonna be all that cheap–but I’m definitely going to pick up this box set that looks to be just about the last word on all things UNCLE. Better start saving right now!
