The Summit-Five Affair - S4-E1

Audio problem: When Napoleon and Illya are caught in the steam room, and Illya is trying to pick the door lock, Napoleon's mouth doesn't move in sync with the words when he says, "Make it work. Try forcing it." His mouth then stops moving entirely while he's still talking, and then starts moving again when he stops. (00:40:40)

The Summit-Five Affair - S4-E1

Audio problem: When Helga is trying to bargain with Mr. Beldon in exchange for confessing to be the Thrush double agent, Mr. Beldon comments, "We have exactly five minutes before..." A completely different voice has dubbed over the word "five". (00:32:50)

The Quadripartite Affair - S1-E3

Plot hole: Solo blows open the ceiling vent of Illya and Marion's cell, and she stands on Illya's shoulders until Solo can reach her and pull her out. This leaves Illya with nothing/no one to stand on, no way to reach the vent and no apparent way out of the cell. But he's out just the same in the next scene, with no explanation as to how. (00:42:40)

More quotes from The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

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.
