Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is a spy drama from the 1960s, so cultural differences are prominent throughout the show. Female characters factor in but definitely tend toward the traditional, usually cast as devoted housewives, accommodating flight attendants, and self-deprecating coworkers. Despite the collaboration between American and Soviet agents, the political setting hints at the Cold War tensions of the time as well. You'll see plenty of shooting and some dead bodies but no blood, and perilous predicaments are mostly short-lived and end happily for the good guys. Wink-wink moments between men and women will go over tweens' heads, and there's no sexy stuff beyond that to worry about.
Some kissing and lots of wink-wink moments shared between adults. Some women are shown in swimsuits. Flirting in the workplace, as when a man calls a woman his "little agent provocateur."
Shoot-outs and chase scenes, and some dead bodies shown but not bloody. People are handcuffed, held prisoner, and knocked out by gas. Explosions and fires.
The series runs with the concept that evil organizations operate throughout the world, killing those who get in their way. There's a lot of duplicity at play, on both sides of the divide between right and wrong. Women feature prominently in the stories, mostly upholding gender roles of the time but sometimes demonstrating abilities that are less traditional. Characters from far-flung nationalities collaborate for the good of the whole world.
