The opening words of the opening commercial were so tender sounding it made me really uncomfortable. I was just like "Whoa! Calm down Paul!"

 

 

Also, to make the Echidna thing extra gross, especially if you're a fan of Sonic the hedgehog... Knuckles is an echina.

The Avengers are here! Get ready for weird stuff like teddy bear suits, a clone of Emma Peel, a mute Eddie Izzard who says only one line before his impending death, and how the whole thing got butchered before its release.

I don't remember it being all that bad but then again i don't remember any of it after re-watching the trailer.

 

Guess I am the Tom Hanks, Mr short memory of the group. It's from SNL if you don't know.

Guess I got a Ronald Reagan thing going on here.

I guess I am the Tom Hanks the mr short term memory of the group.

I didn't think it would really be that bad either, but then I was like okay all this shit just happened with 0 explanation so the action must be starting and it must be almost over... NOPE IT HAS ONLY BEEN 25 FUCKING MINUTES AND IT'S A 90 MINUTE MOVIE SOMEONE KILL ME

I have a lot of jumbled, annoyed thoughts about "The Avengers" so I'm glad it's next. Perhaps I will get my nerd notes into some coherence by next week. It does feel VERY long. Like even rewatching so clips I'm like, "Is this over yet? I have seen Ralph Fiennes be more attractive without a nose."

 

Did anyone out there watch the Avengers TV series? It was before my time. I have seen pictures and clips, of course. I always thought Diana Rigg's Emma Peel was sexy. But also that she was very cute and more light-hearted than this? Like Uma Thurman seems like she's in pain a lot. There is zero fun happening. Is it just because her heels are much higher than Diana Rigg's? Or is the characterization markedly different?

This episode contained more information about frog penises than I care to have. Congrats, Amy!

This is all I read out of this, because of reasons...

Yep, me. It was extremely camp and fun, so appealled enormously to kids back in the early 70s when I remember it from. Though I always picture it in my head in black and white as that was what our TV set was back then. I only remember the late 70s remake version with Joanna Lumley (from Absolutely Fabulous) as Purdey in the Emma Peel sidekick role, in colour.

 

ITV seemed to specialise in churning out very arch, swinging London type shows about playboy crimefighters and spys that frequently ended in 'ers' back then. The Avengers, Ther Protectors, The Persuaders, The Champions. Usually with a token famous Yank for overseas sales.

I was mentioned, and commended with "Interesting" and "Great point", so no Powerbomb this time...

There was also Dempsey and Makepeace in the 80s, a tough New York City cop comes over to London, and is paired with an upper class, well to do police detective.

They ended up getting married in real life after doing this show together.

Glynis Barber is still fucking gorgeous, in fact shes even hotter looking now that shes in her 60s.

Do you remember, or maybe I should say, have you even heard of, as I wouldnt have thought youre old enough to remember, Sapphire and Steel?

Starring Joanna Lumley (again) & David McCallum - another time defier - as crimefighting aliens with special magic powers. If the team did TV shows then that would be a prime candidate.

This show was played absolutely straight as if they were acting in Brideshead Revisited or something. Possibly the most baffling show ever.

Jam packed with cod scientific bollocks and blatently made up on the spot over complicated jargon and made on such a low budget that I cant recall any special effects whatsoever. Im sure there must have been some but I cant remember any. Any action that required a decent amount of SFX, took place off camera with the a head shot of either Sapphire or Steele (I dont remember or, frankly, care who was who) vebally describing what was going on in the most overcomplicated way ever.

"Oh no, if that tractor beam reaches the flux capacitor then the womble count will reach ten thousand on the jazzmag scale. If we dont wankle the tuppingham adaptor to furlong the muckley resistor it will reach critical mass and we will be blown to kingdom come before Scotland Yard get here! Oh the colours, such beautiful colours! What an amazing sight!!"

 

It made Doctor Who seem like Interstellar.

I didn't watch it, but I saw clips of it on one of those I Love The 80s knock offs (I was born in 1983, and on a quick google search, it ended in 1982).

 

And Glynis Barber is still ridiculously hot

This woman is 60. It's like there's a mold of women like Glynis Barber, Nigella Lawson and others who just kept their looks.

Sorry just edited my post before seeing your reply.

 

Though you never really need an actual reason to post pictures of Glynis Barber (or Nigella, come to that)

I haven't listened to the mini yet, but I am watching The Avengers right now...

 

Sean Connery just said, "You know, one should never fear..." *eyes Uma Thurman up and down* "...being wet," and my soul vomited in its mouth a little.

Just listening now.

I often listen to the show in the bath, while having a bath. And have been known to fall asleep in the bath too. Though not while listening to the show happily enough. Baths are awesome, weary limbs get rested not like showers where you just get wet.

If a bath is a torrid summer affair in Paris with Scarlett Johansen, then a shower is a quick knee trembler up that alley beside the bookies with that old slapper who brags about sucking off Lemmy after a gig at the Ulster Hall in 1981 and is now resistant to penicillin.

I remember seeing this movie in the theater in high school. Strange Days and Pulp Fiction were two of my favorite movies at the time, so I was REALLY excited about Fiennes + Thurman. I actually saw it twice because I was convinced I had missed something and that was the reason I didn't like it.

 

(Note: the same thing would happen the following year with The Phantom Menace, except I re-watched it about 5 times)

This was my first (and definitely last) time watching The Avengers. If you haven't seen it yet I'd recommend watching it dubbed in a foreign language that you don't understand. The story you make up as you watch it will be far more coherent.

There were waaay too many times where I actually had to look away from the screen because Sean Connery was a disgusting human with disgusting dialogue.

 

I can't wait to find out which line you put in your signature because there were maybe 6 or 7 I wrote down in my notes as being A+ (and by A+ I mean how did this writer get hired ever again after this was made?!)
