Watched and tapes the CNN special on The Sixties, the TV episode. Not one mention of MFU. Not even a fast shot. Even The Prisoner had a quick cut.

This makes me soooo angry. How can they continue to ignore a show that had such impact! Don't tell me Tom Hanks wasn't running around the backyard with his U.N.C.L.E. Special when he was a kid!

And just walk up to any Baby Boomer today and say: "Illya Kuryakin." Even if they didn't watch the show, they know who that is!

It was referenced on "Mad Men" for God sakes!

I went on CNN's site and complained, but someone bombarded the site with links to something about the Middle East and so my comment got buried.

Damn. Dissed again!

I feel like going all Maleficent on them: "What? We weren't invited?"
