ECLECTIC MEANDERINGS ON BOOKS, PULPS, NOIR, '60S SPY SERIES, SOUNDTRACKS, JAZZ, THE RAT PACK, THE LOUNGE LIFE, Y/A NOVELS, COMICS, AND ANYTHING ELSE OF MILD AMUSEMENT . . .
Never watched the film. Besides hearing so much bad stuff, I could never visualize Thurman as peel and Fiennes as Steed.I first watched the series as a young male and imprinted Diana Rigg(she was hot before the word was used) as the ultimate female. You know how us males are.
Obviously, I have the same imprint! I'm with you, Randy when it comes to Diana Rigg.
Ugh... i was dragged to the cinema TWICE to see this movie.Fiennes and Thurman were awful in the roles. Obviously you can't beat the originals, but i think Gary Oldman and Jaime Murray would have been closer to the mark.Also as much as i worship Diana Rigg, i gotta send some love Honor Blackman's way too.
I agree Honor Blackman deserves some love, but Diana Rigg turned the character into an icon.The Avengers movie was a disaster from start to finish - as with so many movie remakes of TV series. The only one worse in the spy genre was the dreck that was I Spy.
