watched some 16th dvd from "Mega Box" the other night. Hope a Complete Blu-Ray boxset for US market is pursued, someday!
Blu Ray ? I have season 4&5 region 2.
All of the Emma Peel and Tara King episodes are streaming in HD on Amazon Prime. The color Emma's still have the pitched-up soundtracks, but are at the proper 24fps speed. Very strange.
John Huston recommended the Canadian actress. Apparently Linda Thorson came up with Tara King name herself.
That evokes a lovely mental image of John Huston, whisky and cigar in hand, sitting in front of the TV watching The Avengers every week.
Well he was in Casino Royale anything’s possible I guess.
Steed a little bit cheeky in that scene.
If I binged on prime Diana Rigg, I'd have a boner that will never quit.
I'd get the Tara King DVD set if it was re-issued. I did get the Emma Mega set.
I can relate to this thread; I was madly in love with this gal when I was a teen :
Prolly not nearly as kickass and flematicaly charming and elegant as Emma Peel (whose show I also watched and enjoy) but man was she attractive ! Watched all of the episodes, but never gotten around to getting the DVDs though. Unobtanium.
April Dancer ?
Yeah was miffed when the show ended, only one season.
Anybody get The Complete Avengers ( suitcase)?
The original cast SNL seasons sets came out a while ago (the first five seasons). You can still buy them.
They were all B&W episodes to me, because we never got a color TV set until after the series had ended.
I agree. Growing up with B&W, there are just some thing that I think look better and work better in B&W rather than color.
To me, they should have never made an Outer Limits TV series in color. Old 1930's horror movies worked so much better in B&W.
In B&W, it is all about the story, not the color effects.
I really enjoyed the old TV shows in B&W, like The Man From Uncle, The Avengers, The Outer Limits and The Wild Wild West.
I don't think that I ever saw any Avengers TV shows since I saw them when they originally aired, so I don't even remember any of them off the top of my head. Maybe I would recall one that I had seen before, if I were to see it again?
Some really good stuff back in those days...
It was very cool to see Diana Rigg and guest star Julian Glover both show up decades later in Game of Thrones:
Tell me about it ! And she was a great a go go dancer, which I found very sexy. She wore mini skirts with those beautiful legs..............don't get me started ! This thread made me want those DVDs, badly
Is there more than one dvd ?
It's a 4-DVD set with all 29 episodes . Can't get them locally, or download them for that matter
No region 2.
My BDP is multi-voltage, multi-region and multi-norm. No biggie.
Thanks for the heads-up. A great addition to the playlist.
I, ahem, found the Girl From Uncle eps not so long ago, having cherished memories of seeing the odd one many years ago, and I still have a tie in paperback from when you could pick them up for pennies (no offers entertained, sorry), but even allowing for the considerable powers of erm Stefanie, I was sorely disappointed. Poor production values.
