08:01 am Last night I ran the Netflix disc of The Man From UNCLE, a re-telling of the 60s TV series of the same name. The old show had no character development to speak of, while this one does. The TV show had no backstory, nor did it connect at all with the real history; the movie did a fairly good job of setting the real scene in the early 60s. Not bad. Not great, mind you. I could see watching a sequel to this, though.
