The return of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. franchise has been a mixed blessing in the Risky Fuel household.
Particularly because one half of Team Fuel (Sarah) has a deep, borderline “problem” level crush on the original television show’s thoughtful, mysterious Russian spy character Illya Kuryakin, who was played by David McCallum.
In the film reboot Kuryakin is entirely different, a musclebound lurch played by Armie Hammer.
Sarah’s having a hard time accepting the new version of Illya, which may be putting her at odds with a whole new generation of U.N.C.L.E. fans.
She wrote about this quandary in her first piece for The A.V. Club.
