Long DescriptionThis boxed set dips deeper into the vaults for seven vintage, rarely seen episodes from "The Avengers"' second season. For series devotees, these episodes, shot on video, have a crude fascination. At this early stage, the fledgling series was more serious with less way-out stories or bizarre characters. Three of these episodes rank as among the best costarring a pre-"Goldfinger" Honor Blackman as Cathy Gale, Steed's resourceful and often leather-clad partner. "The White Dwarf" is an early dabbling in science fiction, which would become this series' stock in trade in later years. Is a white dwarf star on a collision course with Earth? Can worldwide panic be avoided? Leave it to Steed to vow to "have a good time while there's still time to have it." In "Six Hands Across a Table," Steed must sink a scheme to control British shipbuilding launched by none other than Gale's new lover. In "Brief for Murder," Gale is a very "delicti" corpse as Steed goes undercover to entrap the Lakin brothers, two elderly defense lawyers with a gift for acquittal. "A Conspiracy of Silence" and "Killer Whale" are average episodes. Of special interest to "Avengers" buffs are two episodes costarring Julie Stevens as Venus Smith, a perky jazz singer whom Steed unaccountably recruits to help him. "Man in the Mirror" is one of the worst in her brief tenure with the series, while "A Chorus of Frogs" is perhaps her best. Venus is the entertainment on a ship on which Steed has stowed away to investigate a smuggler's death. Still, you might want to fast-forward through her two songs. "--Donald Liebenson"

Over the past few months, we have been making some very big changes to the site. You have already seen some of the cosmetic changes but the bulk of the changes have been behind the scenes.

The biggest changes have all happened on the database side of things. We have changed the way we collect, review and display the information for each product.

Although most people won't care about the changes that happen in the background, some of those changes also come with updates to the user interface beyond simple cosmetics.

We hope to have the new version out to the public in the next few weeks and by the end of this year for sure. But we would like to offer a few users the opportunity to try out the new site in the testing environment.

Basically, we would like a few people to just play around in the test area and if something isn't working as expected, just let us know.

If this is something you might be interested in, please contact us. We will set up a user account for you and then you can test.

Just keep in mind, as people are testing, we will continue to make improvements so the test site may change a little from day to day.
