Harlan Ellison actually wrote some really dreadful TV
6 May 2017 | by jungophileSee all my reviews

Yes, believe it or not, the great Harlan Ellison, who wrote the classic Star Trek episode "City on the Edge of Forever" , as well as the unforgettable "Demon with a Glass Hand" from The Outer Limits wrote this pitifully cheesy Man From U.N.C.L.E. episode. I guess he was trying to attain that campy Batman type vibe with this quotidian exercise in mediocrity.

All the "funny" scenes don't work, the dialogue is campy and forced, and the whole premise is just plain silly. I only watched this stupid show because I thought Ellison had higher standards and would not disappoint, even with a spy spoof show like Man From U.N.C.L.E. Well, I was soooo wrong.

Give Harlan some credit where it is definitely due, however; the episode title is perfect!
