Brace yourself for a riveting adventure replete with dry wit and deadly weapons, a dashing hero and a dazzling heroine. A smashingly sexy international sensation, THE AVENGERS was one of the most successful and influential British television exports in history. And now it’s back, better and bolder than ever! These digitally remastered 1967 colour episodes feature the exquisite Mrs. Emma Peel (Dianna Rigg) and the impeccable John Steed (Patrick Macnee) matching wits with the most twisted of villains. This collection includes the first six episodes aired on American television: FROM VENUS WITH LOVE: Steed is shot full of holes--and Emma sees stars. THE FEAR MERCHANTS: Steed puts out a light--and Emma takes fright. ESCAPE IN TIME: Steed visits the barber--and Emma has a close shave. THE SEE-THROUGH MAN: Steed makes a bomb--and Emma is put to sleep. THE BIRD WHO KNEW TOO MUCH: Steed fancies pigeons--and Emma gets the bird. THE WINGED AVENGER: Steed goes bird watching--and Emma does a comic strip.

Review:

The long-running Avengers series added some extra gloss to its look and feel by filming in color starting in 1967, making the inimitable, eccentric atmosphere of the show complete. That production change coincided with some of the best writing the program ever enjoyed. So it makes sense that those late-1960s episodes of The Avengers have been packaged to help us forget the botched 1998 feature film version of the show. Set 1 includes a mystery about killer phobias, "The Fear Merchants"; the time-travel story "Escape in Time"; the feathery spy tale "The Bird Who Knew Too Much"; the invisible-villain yarn "The See-Through Man"; and the comic-book spoof "The Winged Avenger." --Tom Keogh
