[singlepic=77,320,240,watermark,right]Today, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., the complete series, was released on DVD in a nifty looking attaché case that contains all 105 U.N.C.L.E. episodes that aired during the show’s original run from 1964 to 1968. The four seasons come in boxsets of their own with included 4 8-page booklets, and tons of extras. The briefcase is not sold in stores and is exclusive to Time Life for $249.95 (or “five easy payments of $49.99”). I have no idea when the individual season box sets will be released in stores.

Some of the early development of the show was done by Ian Fleming who famously came up with the main character’s name, Napoleon Solo which derives from Goldfinger. Some of Fleming’s handwritten notes on the show which includes plots and characters are included in the DVD’s bonus features.

Here’s a review from MonstersandCritics.com and another from the LA Times.
