THE AVENGERS: THE COMPLETE EMMA PEEL MEGASET (2013)
October 28, 2013  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment
 
The 2013 in the title refers to this new release by Lionsgate, which packages this classic Sixties British series in a very affordable, though clumsily and sparsely packaged, new reissue.  On 16 discs for under $50, it presents all 51 episodes of the 1965-68 The Avengers series – the ones starring Patrick Macnee as bowler-wearing British secret agent John Steed and Diana Rigg as his jumpsuit-wearing, very liberated female partner, Emma Peel. Young readers should know that this has nothing to do with the current movie series based on the Marvel Comics superheroes, who surfaced in comic books that same decade. Older readers already know that, and know why any Emma Peel Megaset is worth owning, and savoring.  – DB

Peel Admirer
When I was a teenager, thoughts of Mrs. Peel in her leather jumpsuit with the zippered front got me through many a cold and lonely night.
