| Entertains despite a handful of bad scripts/Why it was only one season
Outstanding music, charming young leads, game guest stars, exciting stunt work, colorful fashions and sets (mostly)triumph over some scripts that weren't ready for filming(Did THE Richard Matheson really hack out the Atlantis Affair(partly redeemed by April besting the villain in a sword fight in Act 4)?). Maybe somebody else rewrote his script. Airing a spinoff of a NON Top Ten show(Season 2 Man from Uncle barely edged Girl's ratings nemesis Daktari) against 2 established shows, Daktari and Combat, might have been too high a hurdle even with consistent scripting. Plus the outre fashions and sets that look so good now on DVD would have been lost on the tiny analog black and white sets many/most had in 1966/7 whereas Daktari and Combat seem more amenable to B&W. Plus was America ready for the first(?) female-American-starring one hour action adventure series? Audiences chose Gomer Pyle over the prior year's very entertaining half hour Honey West. Also it took SEVERAL seasons for Avengers(which this series is unfairly comparted to) show's scripts to become more consistently entertaining and even a couple of the Ms. Peel series were clunkers-and they only filmed 14 eps a season. "Moulin Ruse Affair" a favorite-fun to watch ancient Burt Mustin DEMOLISH Uncle HQ(great stunt work)! Dave Grusin's "Muffin" soundtrack is sublime and is best heard uninterrupted on the probably out of print Volume 3 CD of Uncle soundtracks-the Girl from Uncle album has a less robust orchestration(but a lovely Girl from Uncle theme not heard in any episode). RIP April and Mark
