Sam Rolfe wanted to leave the meaning of UNCLE ambiguous so it could be understood as a reference to "Uncle Sam" but, under pressure from the U.N.O., the producers added an end card reading, «We wish to thank the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement without whose assistance this program would not be possible.» U.N.C.L.E.'s archenemy was a vast organization known as THRUSH (originally named WASP in the series pilot movie). The series never explained the acronym THRUSH, but 'David McDaniel' in his MGM authorized novel "The Dagger Affair", revealed it was the Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity, See more »
The map upon Mr. Waverly's office wall contains numerous errors. Among these are the depiction of Canada and Newfoundland as two separate states, the omission of East Pakistan, and the conglomeration of all the states of Indo-China into a country named Siam. This map appears in numerous episodes. See more »
This show was born from the potential from it's parent show, The Man From UNCLE, in a fantastic episode called "The Moonglow Affair." However, due to some mysterious fluke the producers changed the actors in the lead. This was a fatal flaw: not due to the actors, but their chemistry was very far off.
The plots of "Girl" were troubled and not very interesting. Even the supposed 'best' episode, "The Mother Muffin Affair," (starring Boris Karloff in drag), is at best a meddling excuse for a show. Such a disappointment.
If "Girl" can prove anything, it's that sometimes even the best of intentions can bear no fruit. A real shame, too.
