some good and quite a few not-so-good,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Protectors: The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
this isn't gerry anderson's most successful live-action series, U.F.O takes first place in that regard.
even so, there are some good episodes from "the protectors" but most of them can be found in the first series from 1972/73 as the second series is a real letdown with some pedestrian stories and acting. for me, 26 episodes would have been preferable to 52. also, the rather grainy footage doesn't help either.
the supporting cast is very good but most of these I.T.C shows do contain some highly gifted and reliable actors. i loved seeing the likes of derren nesbitt, ian hendry, nigel green( in his last t.v appearance before his untimely death) and patrick troughton amongst others. they add something to the series.
robert vaughan is quite effective in the lead and he is well supported by the other two regular characters. i like the catchy theme tune as well.

I must admit I dont remember many of the episodes off hand but do remember enjoying them. The one I really like is the First Circle with the late Ed Bishop who starred as Commander Straker in the gerry Anderson series u.f.o.
