User Reviews

A classic show!
24 October 1999 | by jimbo-142See all my reviews

"The Persuaders" is one of those rare television shows that very few people know about or talk about (because they made so few of them and they are rarely shown anywhere, especially in the United States). But this is a must-see for anyone who likes action, adventure, and comedy. Moore and Curtis are perfect and so very, very funny. And it's got one of the all-time best opening themes ever (written by the legendary John Barry). "The Persuaders" is available on video so I suggest you try to rent it. This is one heck of a great show! Don't miss it!
