Has the world ever seen as refined a pair of heroes as THE AVENGERS? in addition to brilliantly absurd storylines, deadly traps and daring rescues, THE AVENGERS offered the world a unique combination of old-world style -- the suave Patrick Macnee as John Steed, and "kinky" British pop culture -- the exquisite Diana Rigg as Mrs. Peel. "Escape In Time" First aired 28 January, 1967 When a mad miscreant whips up a time machine, it takes THE AVENGERS no time at all to show him the "era" of his ways. Look for the "kinky" scene of Emma in medieval stocks, accused of being "designed to drive a man to lust," as well as two extremely rare clinches between the enigmatic colleagues. Directed by John Krish, Written by Philip Levene. "The See-Through Man" First aired 4 February, 1967 When an enemy agent purchases a secret "invisibility" formula, it takes the perceptive Avengers to see through his plans. THE AVENGERS deals with the Cold War with and aristocratic detachment. The repartee between Steed and Soviet Ambassador Brodny illustrates Steed’s contention that "we’re the best of enemies." Directed by Robert Asher, Written by Philip Levene."Escape in Time" finds the intrepid John Steed and Emma Peel hot on the trail of villains who are offering criminals the perfect escape from modern law: a one-way trip to the past, where they can lose themselves in history. Philip Levene´s smart script and Avengers designer Wilfred Shingleton make the time-transport scenes convincing in a very economical way--travelers go to sleep in a room at an opulent, old country house and awaken in that same room furnished in the style of the Georgian or Elizabethan ages, etc. When Mrs. Peel takes a trip back to what she believes is going to be 1790, and is confronted by a masked executioner from an older era, it´s yikes time. Levene also wrote the second episode on this tape, "The See-Through Man," in which a discredited inventor (the delightful Roy Kinnear) sells his formula for invisibility and Steed and Emma believe enemy agents may be using it. Not one of the pantheon episodes, "The See-Through Man" is still quite enjoyable, particularly in its tag scene, which finds our hero and heroine pushing Steed´s old Rolls after it fails to start. --Tom Keogh
