by Critical Commons Manager

This episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. presents a remarkable vision of the capacity for supercomputers to transform historical knowledge into a system for planning world domination by an international crime syndicate. In the hands of THRUSH, the ultimate computer promises to make "all the knowledge of the world" available with "the push of a button," eliminating "subjective error and human frailty."
