I'm just moving this from the other thread:
I was really little when I first saw the Avengers. It was the type of show that would come on if the baseball game was rained out.
I was too young to get the banter, but thought Emma Peel was something special.
Then ~20 years later I come home from a late night out, turn on the TV flip through cable channels and see the Production card for the show--I hadn't seen that since I was like five, but knew instantly that it was the Avengers. Great episode too. I'd really like to see more of them.
I still have an emotional letdown when I hear something about "Avengers coming to netflix" or something when I realize they are talking about the Marvel human waste.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.
