Hello! I'm Lee and I've just joined.

I've been a big Avengers fan since my early teens, catching the season 4 repeats on C4 and falling for its absolute charm and magic.

A few years later, Central, my local ITV station in the Midlands, began showing The New Avengers. It was on really late, but we had a neighbour with a video and they taped it for me. I've still got those old VHS tapes (with all the accompanying Central continuity greatness - for those who are into that sort of thing Very Happy )

My tastes in the programme have shifted a lot over the years, but I think my favourite seasons are 3 and 4 - there is a certain off-the-wall quality, but is slightly more grounded. I love episodes from all over its history, though, some more the more wacky as well as the more serious.

I'm looking forward to discussing the series we all love with you all!

Regards,
Lee

Hiya, Lee.

Welcome to the forum.

It's a relatively quiet place these days but we have a core number of members who pop by regularly to keep things ticking over.

There's a thread in the TV section called Dead Duck about how we feel interest in the show is going these days.

Hello from me. I'm another with a collection of VHS off-airs, in my case from Southern.

Thanks for your welcomes.

Glad I'm not the only one who has kept things on VHS - I've also got the C4 repeats from 93 for Honour Blackman.

I think for me, I've kept them also because of the continuity. The way ITV has gone, these are now pieces of history.

Would love to see how Granada and Southern packaged the programmes.

I'm ashamed to say I junked all of my off-air VHS recordings years ago after they started going furry. I figured the DVDs were more complete and easier to access.
Welcome aboard, though, Lee. Always good to have another voice in our conversations.

Cheers, Dissolute.

Nice to be able to chat with someone on the other side of the world.

So when was The Avengers first shown over where you are - and how did you find out about it?
