I got my first set of discs from Blockbuster yesterday and I'm enjoying watching John Steed and Emma Peel fight exotic crime.
If you've never seen the show before it's a treat. It's a '60s spy thriller with witty dialogue and some far-fetched plots. A precursor to shows like Moonlighting and Remington Steele, the Avengers was made during the hey-day of 007, cold war and strange gadgets.
Just like The Prisoner, here is a bunch of links to get you caught up.
