* FanService: The writers often found excuses for Stefanie Powers to not have many clothes on. Example: her clothes get burned in a accident so she can only wear a man's shirt; she's forced into dressing as the member of a harem; an explosion covers her in black, forcing her to take a shower.

* IdiotBall: In his [[https://uncleepisodeguide.wordpress.com/spinoff-the-girl-from-u-n-c-l-e-1966-67/ episode guide]] to the series, William J. Koenig identifies this as one of the show's major flaws. DependingOntheWriter, the protagonists sometimes act like the competent, highly-trained spies they're supposed to be, but all too often "April and Mark spend a lot of time flailing about against adversaries who really ought not [to] be much trouble to take out. "

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: "The Montori Device Affair" was originally set to be another RequiredSpinoffCrossover pairing April Dancer with Illya Kuryakin, but it didn't pan out (thus making Kuryakin/David [=McCallum=] the only one of the main characters/cast members never to appear on/with ''The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.'' - Stefanie Powers was never on ''The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'', but her character was).
