Kick-ass Avenger style: remember Purdey, Gambit and Steed? Talk about The New Avengers here!

People can't seem to let go the image of Diana Rigg when they're watching the Avengers, and so the comparison between her and Joanna is constantly made, while they obviously played very different roles. I love both series a lot: they're different, but quite good.
Strange though that nobody seems to bother to compare Diana to Honor, who was - after all - the real first Avenger girl...

I also laughed a lot in DIRTIER BY THE DOZEN, when Gambit tries to warn Purdey that she's actually standing on a minefield, he suddenly shoots on the ground, then Purdey looks at him as if she was gonna kill him and says "Mike Gambit !".
I was literally out of control, I couldn't breathe while watching THREE HANDED GAME with Gambit's jalousy, in his car while Purdey prefers teasing him by "flirting" with the other agent, in front of them.
It was so good, really !

It's in fact rather Gambit/Steed focused, and even though they do doubt each others loyalty, it shows that their professional relationship is based on mutual trust.
Bonus points for Gambit calling Pudey's mother, and basically forcing her to ask him to dinner, haha.
