4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable nostalgia., 18 Aug. 2009
This review is from: The Persuaders: The Complete Series [DVD] [1971] (DVD)
Recently bought this boxset thinking it wouldnt be as good as i remember it,but i was wrong it was just as enjoyable nearly 30 years after i first seen it as a 14 year-old.In most episodes ,certainly not all,the humour between the two leads works very well,the story lines are reasonable and with the usual cast of supporting actors for ITC the standard of acting is high.The most pleasing thing about this boxset was the splendid extras.Although only 3 commentaries is disappointing ,the documentary "the morning after"(48:50),the dutch tv programme "avroskoop"(19:43) and tony curtis interview from 1974(14:37)fill in any blank spaces.There is also top of the pops footage(2:14) and news and advertising footage(10:00),also episode trailers and titles.The final extra is an episode of the saint "the ex-king of diamonds" which is regarded as the pilot for the persuaders,where the saint teams up with an american on the riviera,which has a commentary with roger moore and others.There is also a 24 page booklet and 4 movie versions(where two unrelated episodes are strung together),this ,i think, was a waste of two discs but some may enjoy them.So all in all a very good set.
