THE AVENGERS SE­RIES FIVE

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Rated -

Re­lease Date: OUT NOW!

1967 | PG | Blu- ray The dig­i­tal restora­tions of The Avengers’ first run in glo­ri­ous colour fi­nally make it to Bluray. NB: some guides con­sider these 24 episodes to com­prise both sea­sons five and six. The sto­ries them­selves in­creas­ingly step fur­ther into the fan­tas­tic and tales like “Epic” and “The Winged Avenger” are de­light­fully ab­surd. We said: “Per­haps too many episodes fol­low a too- sim­i­lar for­mula, and some of the scripts don’t quite have the pace and in­ven­tion of the best of sea­son four. But this is tele­vi­sion that doesn’t come along very of­ten: bold, orig­i­nal and vi­sion­ary. It could only have been made in Bri­tain and it could only have been made in the ’ 60s.”
