This review is from: The Avengers: The Complete 50th Anniversary Collection [DVD] (DVD)
"The Avengers", along with "Danger Man" and "The Prisoner", was always my favourite TV series from the 60s when I was a lad. This DVD set provides the full set of surviving episodes of the show; this includes all the Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman), Emma Peel (DIana Rigg) and Tara King (Linda Thorsen) episodes. The Emma Peel/Tara King episodes were on film instead of videotape meaning their quality is better - indeed, they look as if they were made yesterday such is their quality. For those who haven't seen it before it is an action/adventure series that remembers humour and romance, and keeps its tongue firmly in cheek. The humour is typical British understated humour with more and more fantistical stories that simply make the show iconic. The disks are full of an excellent set of extras. The packaging could be better though I can extract the disks reasonably easily but they are a tight fit. Expensive, but worth the price if you remember this series with affection.
