Patrick Macnee, aka John Steed, hosts this look at the famed British cult spy show. Handpicking six of his favorite episodes, Macnee adds commentary and anecdotes to each episode. All three of the original Avenging lasses--Honor Blackman, Linda Thorson, and Dame Diana Rigg--are featured in the programs. Each actress brought a different dimension to this series, long considered one of the best ever produced. But at the center of it all is Steed--daring, debonair, dashing, and downright delectable. This collection is a must-own for die-hard AVENGERS fans or those looking for an amiable introduction to the series.
