IMITATION SPY GIRL!

THE AVENGERS' UMA THURMAN/EMMA PEEL (I DON'T THINK SO)!

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.
