The Aliens Are Coming!
12 August 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Solo and Kuryakin are summoned to an observatory in the Caribbean by Dr.Adrian Cool ( Woodrow Parfey ). His radio telescope has detected what appears to be a spaceship heading towards Earth. At the same time, his daughter Coco ( Nancy Sinatra ) is kidnapped. Illya gives chase, but gets overpowered. They are imprisoned in a house belonging to industrialist Simon Sparrow ( Paul Lambert ). The 'signals' from space are, of course, faked. Sparrow intends tricking the authorities into believing that aliens have landed on Earth. Their first act will be to demand that Sparrow be made world leader...

This Berne Giler-scripted episode is not too bad, and due to the presence of Nancy Sinatra was one of the first to be issued on video in the early '90's. Nancy cannot act her way out of a paper bag unfortunately, but is Meryl Streep compared to Sonny and Cher. She and McCallum sing a duet at one point, with him playing the guitar. He wrote the song, and his voice is quite good.

Nice to see Woodrow Parfey not playing the villain for a change. This was his second appearance this season; the other being in 'The Sort Of Do-It-Yourself Dreadful Affair'.

Around this time, on 'The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.', flying saucers featured in an episode appropriately entitled 'The U.F.O. Affair'. It was better than the one featured here, which resembles a triangular balloon.

Strangely, when Sparrow addresses the world leaders, he makes no effort to disguise his voice.

Things To Watch Out For - when Illya helps Coco down a drain pipe, a stuntman in a wig is obviously doubling for Sinatra.
