The Abominable Snowman Affair - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: The first time we see the tomb being sealed, the bricklayer has built the wall up to shoulder height. When the camera shot reverses angles, the wall is suddenly only waist high. (00:41:15)

The Abominable Snowman Affair - S3-E13

Plot hole: Solo gets a letter from Waverly admitting him to forbidden Chupat. If it's that easy, why doesn't Illya get the same privilege? So that we can see him reduced to the humiliating and pointless ruse of sneaking in wearing an inflated yeti costume. Definitely U.N.C.L.E.'s "jump the shark" episode. (00:01:00)

The Abominable Snowman Affair - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: The cinder blocks used to seal the tomb change color. Initially, they're black. But when the wall collapses on the bricklayer, they've turned white. (00:41:00 - 00:45:00)

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.
