Shocked when I saw this. Robert Vaughn passed away. I feel sad. I liked The man from U.N.C.L.E. Now my fantasy ep of NCIS with RV being on with DM will never take place.

I didn't know he had passed until I saw a memorial on ME TV a couple of days ago,

which is what happens when I don't get on this site as much as I should. Thanks for posting this.

Man From Uncle is on Heroes and Icons now, very early in the morning. Heroes and Icons must be a companion network to ME since the nshows go back and between the two. Superman is on H&I also.

My husband and I were sad to hear this. Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a show he enjoys. I watch it, but not with the relish that others do.

Man From Uncle was a good bit like The Wild Wild West, IMHO.

Government agents take on villains that want to rule the world; partners with a wry sense of humor; lots of action.

Don't you mean vice versa, since The Man From U.N.C.L.E. did come first?

Well, I wasn't thinking in terms of who came first. They are both eternally young to me. I was 10 years old when WWW first came on and I don't even remember the first year of Man From Uncle, I don't think we could receive the broadcast out in the country, we didn't have a NBC provider. Our one local channel did show some NBC; I remember Bonanza being on. But, it was primarily a CBS channel. I think that's one reason I enjoy classic TV so much. I missed some of it.

But, anyway, I was just comparing the content of the shows. Not when they came on. WWW is also like Brisco County, Jr. although 25 years separated them.
