Review of Season 5 on Blu ray.

http://spyvibe.blogspot.com/2014/11/avengers-debacle.html




¶ According to the review, the Blu-Ray edition of season 5 is terrible.

¶ Let's wait for the UK edition. But when will they release season 4 on BD, for Pete's sake?


No date set at the moment. The proposed release dates for Season 4 on BD has been postponed. No other news available, unless someone knows any different...wink



I still wonder if they are going to release The Avengers BD (UK/season 4) this year—circa Christmas?






¶ I have the feeling the UK Blu-Ray of season 4 will be available in 2015, circa February.

¶ On the good news front, The Avengers will surface in the UK on February 23, 2015.
What a relief!

Seems the last release was back in 2004. You try could try the Network releases in the UK or the Umbrella releases in Australia. Both are still available.

Perhaps Shout Factory might pick it up. They seem to be dipping into British shows with Stingray and Fireball XL5.

Looks to me like yer average box (as far as I can tell by the pics). The best season for my money, this season & the next (colour) one will do me. I hope picture & sound are up to snuff. All these great sixties shows, & looking so good on Blu-ray! If Lost In Space happens & The Saint starts coming through, that would only leave The Man From UNCLE for me.

Me too. Hate cheap cardboard packs that get tatty quickly with a passion.

I must admit, I like a nice neat amray case. The six-disc Alien Anthology is a good example, neat & a thing of beauty. When The Game Of Thrones finally come to an end, I'll get rid of the various shaped boxes & buy a neat case of the whole thing...if I have the money.
