I'm currently early in season 2 of TMFU via Netflix. To be honest, I haven't been that impressed with the show so far, though it's had its moments. I'm somewhat dreading season 3, but I'm morbidly curious to see exactly what the show became.
I thought The Man from UNCLE was quite good in its first two seasons. Remember, they were basically trying to do James Bond on a weekly TV budget. I liked the premise of a covert international organization that transcended global politics, with an American and a Russian agent working side by side at the height of the Cold War.

I loved the gadgets, the pen-radios, the headquarters with the secret entrance in a tailor shop. And that car that showed up in a few episodes was pretty cool too, though I've heard it was a bitch to drive.

Let's see, am I forgetting anything? Oh yes -- the women!
