How Many TV Spies can I Eye This Year?

Quite a number of television shows have appeared throughout the years featuring spies of all sorts. From 24 to The Wild Wild West, only a handful (including the latter title) have been developed to film. The appeal for this genre certainly hit an all-time high from the mid 60’s to early 70’s, and from there on, the odd program would emerge to re-ignite interest. I’m a huge fan of Chuck, and not since then has a new series of a similar calibre emerged.

From that past era, the list of properties to film includes The Avengers, The Saint, Get Smart, I Spy, La Femme Nikita and Mission Impossible. A few were developed to simply be spy comedies and others were modernized for amping up the action, especially Mission Impossible. A few stayed within context for the time. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is one such release. Both these films saw recent releases, and to say which one is better is a tough choice. Reviews are offered to investigate both on its own merits.
