Poised to keep the scales of justice well-balanced, The Avengers has delighted audiences with its audacious antics and impeccable style since 1961.This classic of British television paired the dapper super-agent John Steed with brilliant and capable women.

With intriguing comments and specially recorded introductions from Patrick Macnee, the original John Steed, these episodes feature the best of The Avengers leading ladies.Mrs. Emma Peel, Mrs. Cathy Gale and Ms. Tara King -- independent, glamorous and resourceful -- represent the very essence of The Avengers adventurous appeal.Each of the six classic episodes included here are Patrick Macnee's favorites, collected together complete and uncut for the first time.

Mr. Teddy Bear: An assassin named Teddy Bear kills a colonel, and The Avengers prove they aren't to be toyed with.A chimp's fingerprints and a dead informant make for a "knockout" of a predicament for Steed and Cathy.

Don't Look Behind You: When Cathy is invited to a mysterious house for the weekend, nothing is as it should be.A man seeking revenge for his arrest plans to kill her, underestimating John Steed's impeccable intuition and timing.

Death At Bargain Prices: When Emma discovers a mysterious lab in Pinter's Department Store, The Avengers go shopping for clues.Once the store itself becomes a giant atomic bomb, it's time for Steed and Emma to check out.

Too Many Christmas Trees: The Avengers battle telepathic influences and a Tale of Two Cities nightmare in an attempt to retain top secret information.But an all-out fight in a mysterious hall of mirrors makes for more than a few Oliver "Twists" for Steed and Emma.
