My Favorite Tara adventure
17 June 2010 | by (Georgetown, KY) – See all my reviews

I'll try not to use the word "atmospheric" more than 3 or 4 times here, but atmospheric it is. There are some problems here in the amount of happenings in one night's time, though. How can anyone write a diary in an hour that could be aged enough to fool the President of the Gas Light Ghoul Club? Try that with the Jack The Ripper fans and see......no, wait...that was indeed done with some of the fans wasn't it? Steed's solving of the mystery clue was certainly obscure (fever of living???), his finding a costume shop open late at night was fortuitous, and his fight with the villain wasn't one of his best. Still, this was one of the best episodes of the entire series and had most of the elements that made The Avengers the show that it was. Did I mention this was atmospheric, atmospheric?
