https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?series=tt0054518&view=simple&count=250&sort=user_rating,desc&ref_=tt_eps_rhs_sm

These are the episodes of The Avengers ordered by IMDB rating, I was wondering what observation you can make on this list.

Episodes with famous guest stars do are clearly doing better.

Lost season one episode do quite well for some reason.

The five worst rated episodes are Tara Kings and not videotaped era episodes.

Couldn't agree more with Too Many Christmas Trees being number one!

I agree with where Homicide and old lace ended up! There were many classics that were far too low though. Who was that man I saw you with, They keep killing Steed and My wildest dream are all 5 bowler classics, so it's very surprising that they failed to make this particular top 100. Not many Tara fans voting here, although Interrogators is in 5th place. I was also surprised to see so many Dr Keel episodes near the top, episodes that no longer exist. How can we tell how good they really are? Unless the people voting here have maybe heard the audio recreations. Two of my least favourite Mrs Peel episodes did well here in 11th and 12th place! It's great to see that exactly half of the top 20 are from season 4, the best season of television ever made. My fave is Hour that never was, followed by Cybernauts, but Too many Xmas trees is a worthy winner. Very Happy

It's a strange list, to be sure. I suspect there's lots of wishful thinking for lost episodes (and a smaller polling sample) propping up series 1. Strange that the existing ones are so much lower, in fact.
