Kick-ass Avenger style: remember Purdey, Gambit and Steed? Talk about The New Avengers here!
Maartje wrote:The latest episode I have seen is Complex. The Canadian episodes are - unfortunately - at the bottom of my list of favorites, but this is a rather good one. The plot isn't spectacular, but the idea of a demolishing building that kills everything and everyone inside it, is good material for an Avengers episode I think.
Maartje wrote:Hm, so they've basically remade an episode, which one? (I can't tell because I simply haven't seen enough Avengers episodes...) Forward Base is quite good too, although I think I prefer this one, partly because of the humor in it. Poor Gambit, patiently waiting alone in his cell while having to endure cliché 008 jokes, haha. ''Gambit, you are WHERE?''
Khell wrote:You know, burn me at a stake but I also do love "Emily". There's just so many cool moments in there. And stuff like -
Steed: "I'll get the eggs."
Purdey and Gambit exchanging perplexed look.
Purdey: "Well, if you weren't gonna ask him, I certainly wasn't."
Or my favourite from that episode:
"If you'd won any more you wouldn't have been able to walk."
Yup. Definitely love that one. Not one of the best but still, I'm very fond of it. Especially the cat - sorry, car in the hat ...
Philippa wrote:Don't worry, I love Emily too! It's just a fun episode. The only one of the Canadian episode I don't like is Gladiators.
And it's funny, I'd never made the connection between Complex and the other episodes you mentioned Timeless. But it is true, there's an automated house in both this one and The House That Jack Built (brilliant episode btw ), nicely spotted!
Philippa wrote:Series 3 is great, which episode do you like best so far?
Philippa wrote:Yes, The Nutshell is a great episode!
And keep an eye out for Don't Look Behind You, one of my favourite Cathy episodes
Philippa wrote:Series 2 is especially hard to sit through. But series 3 is very strong, with a lot of great episodes, and only a few weak ones in my opinion. But then again, I'm a big fan of Cathy, so maybe I'm biased
Philippa wrote:I completely agree with your choices. Target and Faces are 2 of my favourites as well, and I can never decide which one I like better. Target is especially great for the action scenes which you pointed out, and of course Purdey/Gambit angst.
And Faces is actually just hilarious, great Purdey/Gambit dialogue, and of course Terry and Lolita. Those scenes are just priceless, and I can imagine that Joanna and Gareth had so much fun recording those scenes
