Emma Peel’s numerous WTF expressions.
cinemaocd said: We recently downloaded The Avengers. We watched Mr. Teddy Bear but I wasn’t really feeling it. What episodes to you rec for a newb?
I’d say to start with an Emma Peel B&W ep if you haven’t already seen them.
1. Death at Bargain Prices
2. The Cybernauts
3. Town of…
Thanks so much for these! I will take this into account. I like Honor Blackman a lot, though I admit my previous viewing is limited to Green Grow the Rushes. What I’m saying is that I like Green Grow the Rushes a lot.
Death at Bargain Prices and Town of No Return are tops. for Gale I also like the episodes mentioned but I would add the Charmers… but I haven’t seen it in a while…

Okay so do you remember the time that Matt Fraction described Clint and Kate’s relationship as ‘The Avengers (UK) of The Avengers (US)’?
Obviously I thought that was pretty badass, and had a jolly time drawing dapper-as-fuck!Hawkeyes.. it just took me awhile to figure out how to get Clint and Kate rocking a believable Steed and Mrs. Peel vibe. (If Clint’s suit looks familiar, congratulations, you get the other half of the joke.)
Starry-eyed gratitude to an archer (yes, that one specifically :D ) who very graciously provided reference images and general archery consultation. Seriously, this was way less cool before I begged him for input. Thank you, Archer!
Musical inspiration: Tank! (yeah, no, I couldn’t resist) And if you’ve read all the way to the bottom and are still confused, Hawkeye. Matt Fraction. David Aja. It’s a thing. Read the thing. Thank me later.
A plastic arrow narrowly misses her head and she immediately goes, “Ah! Steed’s here!”
“This, Steed, is what we call: Britain.”
“Fascinating, Mrs. Peel.”
