      You're quite right, John. They pretty much started that practice a year or two ago. Litigious, ain't they?

      You are correct, sir! Thanks for the reminder!

      Hmmmmmm. I wonder if there's any connection between having a 'new set' and having a 'new crew'?

      Hmmmmmm. The MOONROCK novelization doesn't cover it, either? Seems like in a lot of the TV novelizations of the time (U.N.C.L.E. included) certain 'explanations' were often included for readers of the books, that were never (or almost never) mentioned in the actual TV shows.
      >... By the way, there's no such thing as S.E.A.R.C.H.
      I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. When I typed that, I was referring to my mentioning to Leslie Stevens my amateurish comic book, NOT the TV show.
      >... TV Guide used to say things like "SEARCH headquarters" or
      >"SEARCH is hired to..." but that was always wrong. Search was >the final name of the show, but it had no other significance >except part of the Probe division's job description was "the >search and recovery of that which was missing." And that was >when it was called "Probe".
      Yes sir. Understood. I agree

      But do I recall the phrase 'Search Division' being used once or twice, in kind of a throwaway capacity?
