The Avengers... No, Not That One, The Other One


Does anyone remember the original "Avengers" from the 1960s? The British TV show starring Patrick MacNee and Diana Rigg? It was stylish and very, very cool. An unlikely pair of crime fighters, the eccentric John Steed and sexy, intelligent Emma Peel got involved in the most fascinating capers, sometimes bordering on sic-fi. It was cleverly written and slyly acted. Every time I hear about "The Avengers" now, that's what I remember.

Yes, I do...used to watch it in Germany as a young girl. Loved that series. The series was called, translated from german into english, with umbrella, charm and Billycock hat. I also was a big fan of Al Mundy (Robert Wagner) in "It takes a thief" and Roger Moore in "The Saint".
