The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. makes list of 15 worst spinoff series

Entertainment Weekly has come out with a list of the 15 worst spinoff series. The only spy series, and one of the oldest series on the list, is The Girl From U.N.C.L.E., which ran in the 1966-67 series.

We’d excerpt except there’s not much text. Essentially, it says Stefanie Powers’s April Dancer comes across as a weak character, suffering in comparison to Diana Rigg’s Emma Peel, who could be seen on The Avengers at the same time. You can see what EW has to say BY CLICKING HERE. Once there you can click around to see the rest of the list, which includes Joey and After M*A*S*H.

  1. Completely disagree !
    Just love some ‘ over the top ‘ Girl scripts ( the demented ‘ Mother Muffin Affair – guest -starring Napoleon Solo & Boris Karloff ! – , or the slightly more serious Galatea Affair ) .
    People tend to forget it was indeed a Camp series ( like Batman ) , not to be taken too seriously .
    Stephanie Powers got it perfectly ( ok , so Noel Harrison is not so well cast as Mark Slate but heck , no casting can be perfect ) .

  2. The Galtea Affair was a Man From U.N.C.L.E. episode, originally written as having Solo and Kuryakin, then revised to have Mark Slate take Solo’s place. The two “crossover” episodes (Girl’s Mother Muffin and Man’s Galtea) aired the same week. (All this for the uninitiated.)
