The Alexander the Greater Affair (1) - S2-E1

Character mistake: When Alexander organizes the human chess game in his courtyard, the "pieces" stand the wrong way on the board, with a dark square in the lower right hand corner. That corner is always a light square. (00:22:50)

Plot hole: Bad guys tie lousy knots. Solo's bonds at the end are so loose that he easily slips his feet free to stop the swinging blade. And the rope across his chest does nothing to pinion his elbows or lower arms. He could have reached up with his hands to catch the blade at any time. (00:44:30)

Continuity mistake: Parviz starts the blade swinging while he's standing directly behind it. In the very next shot, he instantly "jumps" to a position on one side instead. Probably a wise move. We're just not sure how he did it so fast. (00:44:10)

Audio problem: When Parviz realizes Napoleon stole his gun, his mouth doesn't move when he says "My pistol." (00:20:35)

Napoleon Solo: My name is Napoleon Solo. I'm an enforcement agent in Section Two here. That's operations and enforcement.
Illya Kuryakin: I am Illya Kuryakin. I am also an enforcement agent. Like my friend Napoleon, I go and I do whatever I am told to by our chief.
Alexander Waverly: Hmm? Oh, yes. Alexander Waverly. Number One in Section One. In charge of this, our New York headquarters. It's from here that I send these young men on their various missions.

Trivia: "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'s" original working title was "Solo," and its lead character was named for a spy with a minor role in one of Ian Fleming's early Bond novels. U.N.C.L.E. producer Norman Felton had a handshake agreement with Fleming to use the name and to develop "Solo" as a TV spy series. But the Bond film franchise had other ideas, reneged on the agreement on Fleming's behalf, and sued, forcing the title change. Felton prevailed only in retaining the character's name: Napoleon Solo.
