Air date: Sep 16, 1966

Season three of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. began on September 16, 1966, with the episode titled "Her Master's Voice Affair." Once again, UNCLE agents Solo and Illya come face to face with a branch of the villainous and decadent Partridge clan (not to be confused with "The Partridge Family"). This time their nemesis is Hester Partridge (Estelle Winwood), headmistress of an exclusive girl's school attended by the daughters of prominent politicians and industrialists. Actually a front for THRUSH, the school uses psychological programming to brainwash the girls into becoming assassins. The two men from UNCLE are themselves nearly eliminated when the students' killer instincts are triggered by a recording of Brahms' Lullaby. "Her Master's Voice Affair" was written by Bernie Giler.

Harlan Ellison, an unbilled script doctor on many an earlier Man From U.N.C.L.E. episode, is given full screen credit for "The Sort-of-Do-It-Yourself Dreadful Affair." Characteristically, the episode contains a science-fiction slant, as UNCLE agent Solo tries to convince his superiors that he was attacked by an invincible, bulletproof young woman (Pamela Curran). It turns out that the girl was one of several robotized killing machines created by THRUSH in their efforts to control the world. This week's "innocent bystander" is Ms. Andy Francis Jeannine Riley, the roommate of Solo's attacker, while the villain du jour is Dr. Pertwee, played by frequent Man From U.N.C.L.E. guest star Woodrow Parfrey. Also known as "The Do-It-Yourself-Dreadful Affair," this episode first aired on September 23, 1966.

Joan Collins plays a dual role as THRUSH courier Baroness Bibi di Chaussuer and brash Bronx barmaid Rosy Schlagenheimer. As part of a scheme to sabotage a THRUSH payoff, UNCLE agents Illya Kuryakin and Mark Slate (Noel Harrison from The Girl From UNCLE, exchanging "crossover" appearances with Man From U.N.C.L.E. regular Robert Vaughn), make over Rosie into an exact clone of the Baroness. The plot thickens when the Baroness waylays Rosie and takes her place. Written by Jackson Gillis, "The Galatea Affair" originally aired on September 30, 1966.

To get his syndicate-boss uncle Giulano (J. Carroll Naish) off his back, mobster Frank Cariago (Bernard Fein) concocts a scheme to wipe out all his Las Vegas competitors. To do this, he finances a "disaster" film concocted by fly-by-night movie producer Sheldon Veblan (Shelley Berman) as a star-making vehicle for Sheldon's dizzy girlfriend Ginger Laveer (Carol Wayne). UNCLE agents Solo and Illya must prevent Veblan from unwittingly devastating Vegas with an atomic stink bomb. The preponderance of comic talent in this episode all but confirms the fact that Stanford Sherman's teleplay was never meant to be taken seriously. "The Super-Colossal Affair" first aired on October 7, 1966.

Acting upon a clue in a broken liquor bottle, UNCLE agents Solo and Illya investigate possible skullduggery at a Swiss monastery. It turns out that the ancient structure is being used by THRUSH agent Abbott Simon (David J. Peter) as the construction site for a laser gun aimed at the Louvre. This week's innocent bystander is Andrea Fouchet, played by ubiquitous 1960s starlet Celeste Yarnall); also in the cast as Brother Paulus is Iggie Wolfington, who created the role of Marcellus Washburn in the original Broadway production of +The Music Man. Written by Sheldon Stark, "The Monks of St. Thomas Affair" originally aired on October 14, 1966.

UNCLE agent Illya disguises himself as a beatnik to infiltrate a Greenwich Village art gallery which is being used as a THRUSH front. The villain of the piece is gallery owner Mark Ole (Robert H. Harris), who intends to infect the world with a deadly hiccup gas. As usual, there is one "good" girl and one "bad" one; the former is avant-garde artist Sylvia Harrison (Sherry Alberoni), while the latter is enemy agent Mari Brooks (Sabrina Scharf. Frequent Man From UNCLE scripter Stanley Ralph Ross plays a minor role in this episode (he's the chubby guy with the beard). Written by John Shanus and Al Rarus, "The Pop Art Affair" was originally telecast on October 21, 1966.

Bernard Fox makes a return visit to The Man From U.N.C.L.E., this time cast as villainous munitions manufacturer Brutus Thor. Intending to murder his house guest, peace advocate Dr. Fazie Nahdi (Harry Davis), Thor transmits radio messages to his minions -- messages picked up on the fillings in the mouth of wide-eyed kindergarten teacher Nellie Canford (Linda Foster). UNCLE agents Solo and Illya fly to Geneva to foil Thor's scheme; alas, both agents are kidnapped by the villains along with poor Nellie. The script, by Don Richman and Stanley Ralph Ross, is chock-full of cute little inside jokes, such as naming Fox's butler Rhett ("Rhett Butler" -- get it?). "The Thor Affair" first aired on October 28, 1966.

Miranda Bryant (Diana Hyland), the wife of presidential candidate Senator Bryant (Richard Anderson), is kidnapped by THRUSH and replaced with an exact look-alike named Irina (also played by Diana Hyland). UNCLE agents Solo and Illya persuade Bryant to play along with his wife's double in order to find out what THRUSH is up to. Little do they know that the distinguished senator has an agenda all his own. First telecast on November 4, 1966, "The Candidate's Wife Affair" was written by Robert Hill.

Pat Harrington Jr. guest stars as nebbishy THRUSH agent Pierrot La Mouch, who seems willing to hand over a code book to UNCLE agents Solo and Illya. But there's a hitch: The agents must assist Pierrot in his efforts to win the affections of beautiful Algerian bistro owner Janine (Danielle DeMetz). Also in the cast are Jacques Aubuchon as Poe-loving villain Colonel Hamid and Abbe Lane in the gratuitous but decorative role of exotic dancer Ayesha. Scripted by Robert Hill from a story by Hill, Danielle Brenton and Norman Lenzer, "The Come With Me to the Casbah Affair" first aired on November 11, 1966.

Shari Lewis guest stars as Janet Jarrow, a young actress who is thrust into the lead of an off-Broadway musical when the star (Joan Huntington) is killed by THRUSH agents. UNCLE operatives Solo and Illya infiltrate Janet's production in order to locate THRUSH's communications-jamming computer. The climax finds a singing Janet trying to attract the attention of the good guys while enemy agents intrude upon the lively production number "I March For Love.". In another musical interlude, David McCallum performs "A Man Is a Horn on horn, flute, lute, and drum. The supporting cast includes Lennie Weinrib as long-suffering stage director Winky Blintz, as well as Leon Askin and Charles Dierkop as THRUSH heavies Machina and Adolph.

Critic Reviews for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Season 3

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

In its third season, "U.N.C.L.E." didn't just jump the shark. It pole vaulted it.

This hysterical low point is amusing in its failure, and it's no surprise that by the end of the season, the bottomed-out ratings warranted a re-boot.
