Anyone else loving this on Friday nights?  Kind of repetitive (some evil mastermind tries to kill Steed and Mrs Peel, or make them kill each other, they get the tables turned, the end) but Diana Rigg is hot and the show is still entertaining forty years later.  It was so ahead of its time; it reminds me of Buffy; they even have killer robots and end up switching bodies.  I guess it really has all been done before.

It's not on this Friday.  Anyone know why?

Yup the Avengers is excellent, the one last week with Peter Cushing was one of the best ones too. Along with the Prisoner its one of the pinnacles of 60s TV, great writing, great actors, great everything. And Diana Rigg is beyond hot, although I try not to remember that she is infact an old lady now.

The ones I have seen all seem to be the colour later Mrs Peel episodes.  It is a shame as the earlier black and white ones are superior and they didn't feel the need to dress Diana Rigg in bright ill fitting catsuits just for the sake of showing the fact it is in colour (also The Hellfire Club episode is in black and white).
