I'm a bit too young to remember the original, but I have to say from the trailer this looks like a great update on an old idea.   thumbsup

I was a little too young to care about the original series and I'm bored by spycraft and fisticuffs and car chases and explosions and all of that silliness. Cold War nostalgia might merit a new look, though. I miss the USSR.

I was very impressed with that trailer.  Really looking forward to this now.

And did we ship Hugh Grant to Siberia for a decade or something?  Where the hell has he been?  Good to see him again.

I watched the original when it was rebroadcast years later on a local cable channel.  I quickly became a Man from U.N.C.L.E. junkie as a teenager.  Hell, I even sought out and read the novelizations that were released.  David McCallum's Illya Kuryakin was the man. Napoleon Solo only less so. 

I really hope Richie plays up the silliness and fun of the original series.  And I hope they don't hand TOO many emotions to Illya.  It was always fun seeing him struggle with the "heart on the sleeve" approach to life exhibited by Americans on the show.

The original Man from UNCLE was awesome.  I watched re-runs of that show in the 70's as a kid; loved it.  Hopefully they don't screw it up with a reboot.  The trailer looks promising.

Doesn't seem particularly great from the trailer.

We need another Snatch or LS&TSB.
