5.0 out of 5 stars The avengers are needed, 20 Jun 2006

This review is from: The Avengers : The Definitive Dossier 1965 (Box Set 1) [DVD] (DVD)
Firstly the avengers is a classical british series , that is full of bowler hats ,leather catsuits, adventure and comedy. This 1965 set is the emma peel years (by many the best). Diana Rigg plays an excellent avenger by giving her qualities of intelligence, elegance , wit, sport, beauty . She is what i call a "complicated" quintessential lady. then offcousre there is steed (Patrick MacNee), the perfect gentleman whos eemingly has a thing for emma although this is never mentioned in black and white. There chemistry on screen is first class. 1965 is one of the best with fantastic episodes which really sum up all the graet things about the avengers. Very much worth the money!

4.0 out of 5 stars Early Avengers, 25 July 2002

This review is from: The Avengers : The Definitive Dossier 1965 (Box Set 1) [DVD] (DVD)
These two DVD discs contain the very early Emma Peel episodes dating from 1965. On the whole, most of them are rather good. The Cybernauts is quite funny, although it wasnt meant to be at first! Best episodes are The Town of No Return; Death At Bargain Prices and The Master Minds. Fans will have their own choice though. Once again, picture is very good, and more than acceptable sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cybernaut - The Best Avengers Episode, 18 July 2014

This review is from: The Avengers : The Definitive Dossier 1965 (Box Set 1) [DVD] (DVD)
This is the best season of 'The Avengers', and Diana Rigg is the best Avenger girl. For a start, the production values of this season is far superior to whatever went before it, and the stories in this season is superior to what followed after. This is as a good as 'The Avengers' gets, and this particularly box set has the best episodes. What makes this box set, and indeed the series, stand out is 'The Cybernaut' episode. It doesn't get any better than that. The music is the best that you'll get in any 'Avengers' episode, the performances of the actors are at their best, and the pacing of the episode is superb. It is the best in screenwriting, direction, performance and music composition. Clearly, this is a masterclass in how to write, direct, act and compose music for good television. In essence, it is cinematic television, or televisual films. Anyone who appreciates good television, good writing, good direction and good acting must watch this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars a rare piece of televisual magic..., 26 April 2002

I bought this as I remember this series being shown on channel 4 in the early eighties, and seemed to remember liking it. What a fabulous series, with this particular dvd being a real gem. The later series (also available in colour) is also great, but this one seems to benefit from being in black and white. If you like your classic tv, you'll LOVE this.
