The series aired from1964 to 1968 on NBC and quickly became one of the top shows on TV. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the TV series, and in fact it was before my time as well, U.N.C.L.E was a spy movie inspired by the political chaos of the Cold War, a time when spying was core stage as the world's strongest powers confronted each other.

It was innovative, sharing a world of spy agents working on behalf of powerful nations in seek for defense, control and or information.
