In this New Year’s Eve episode of Spy Rewind Matthew and Jeff welcome a special guest. Oscar winner and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. superfan Robert Short join them to take a look at “The Adriatic Express Affair” a New Year’s Eve-themed episode of the classic 60’s spy show.
They discuss how Bob would explore the sets of U.N.C.L.E. as a kid, his family connection to the show, and some of the ways U.N.C.L.E. broke new spy tv ground. Plus we talk about terrible double entendres, questionable spy gadgets and why you should probably avoid starting a cognac-based fire in your jail cell! All that and more in this episode of Spybrary.
