Yes, of course Robert Vaughn was Napoleon Solo, the man from UNCLE. But he was also badass private op Harry Rule, cunning con artist Albert Stroller, the last of the Magnificent Seven, and so much more.
THE WEST WING and STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION are essentially the same show. They’re both optimistic at heart, filled with good people sincerely trying to do their best. No doubt about it, they have a lot in common. But the REALLY fun part is finding parallels between the characters.
Marvel’s Doctor Strange is exactly the kind of superhero movie we all wanted to see back when the ads were promising that we would “believe a man can fly.” The mystic warriors here do a lot more than fly, and it’s all visually stunning.

My favorite thing about Strange is the idea that he’s the guy in the guard tower. He is the one that keeps Earth safe from all the weird psychedelic hell-demons trying to infiltrate our reality and do Bad Stuff.
