This story in today's Boston Globe (Chaotic times call for superheroes over spies
) caught my eye:
In the '60s, secret agents were the kings (and, occasionally, queens) of popular culture, reigning over both big screen and small. There was no more fantastic a four than, say, Sean Connery's James Bond, Robert Vaughn's Napoleon Solo ("The Man From U.N.C.L.E."), Diana Rigg's Emma Peel ("The Avengers"), and Michael Caine's Harry Palmer ("The Ipcress File" and subsequent films).
And I thought to myself that Shadow Unit
, and especially our beloved betas, provide the best of both worlds. Wonder how long it'll take for the first movie options?
