What can you tell me about a show that used to come on in the 1960s featuring Robert Vaughn and the man who plays on NCIS? It seems like it was a spy show.

Yes indeed, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (United Network Command for Law and Enforcement) was an extremely popular TV spy series starring Robert Vaughn as suave Napoleon Solo and David McCallum (who now plays Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard on NCIS) as his Russian sidekick, Illya Kuryakin. The two super-agents were a hot prime-time crime-fighting team for almost four years.
