5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, thrilling and erotic... very much like an Avengers episode itself, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bright Horizons: The Monochrome World of Emma Peel: 1 (The Avengers on Film) (Paperback)
Length:: 3:01 Mins

Bright Horizons is the finest, most comprehensive book ever complied on Series 4: the Emma Peel Monochrome era of The Avengers. The specialist interpretation of each episode is absolutely breathtaking in its stunning detail.

Written with immense knowledge, virtuosity and enthusiasm the 26 chapters have new innovative approaches and methodologies.

The collection of Avengers experts, from diverse backgrounds and disciplines assembled by acclaimed Avengers connoisseur, writer and editor Dr Rodney Marshall, for this exciting new and innovative project, is unsurpassed in its scope. The forward is beautifully written by original Avengers scriptwriter maestro Roger Marshall.

'A Touch of Brimstone' - re-edited in slow-motion -
Music: Thunderball instrumental by John Barry

For Avengers fans worldwide - these are two of the best books you'll ever read on The Avengers Series 4. The book contain new perspectives and analyses, have terrific, thundering narrative drive, pace, verve and panache.

If you are a passionate Avengers aficionado and fan of Patrick Macnee as the suave John Steed and the beautiful Diana Rigg as the voluptuous Mrs Emma Peel, and/or a devotee of sublimely acted and crafted, exotic and erotic thriller television at its very best - then this are the book for you.

As an Avengers fan who remembers watching this fabulous series when it was first broadcast in 1965-1967 I believe the books are important, unique and meticulously well researched documents on The Avengers... the collection of compositions are enchanting symphonies of extraordinary, inspired intensity and love for their subject.

They capture the fantastic quintessence of the unique Avengers style... yet also with distinct echoes a'la Hitchcock/Ian Fleming/Francis Durbridge - b/w thriller television film noir and the color of fantastic escapist yet also compelling serious television drama. The combination of which makes this Avengers on Film book series infinitely enjoyable, splendidly joyous works you will want to read and re-read for many years to come.

So step into the incredible world of Avengerland and enjoy this really wonderful book covering all 26 episodes of the Mrs Emma Peel season 4 - real must buys for Mrs Peel/Diana Rigg Avengers fans.

Bright Horizons is stylish, thrilling and erotic, very much like an Avengers episode itself.
