Sure it is outdated, but so are westerns, but people still watch them. You have to take in the context in which era it was made. We are no longer fighting those Ruskies, but we were then. You can tell by my name why I like the show. By this time Steed is just the brains of the crew with Gambit and Purdey being the brawn. He is still your classic Englishman of that era,polite, charming and well spoken. As with the first series the cars are really fine, but I wish they had chosen some other color for Purdey's MGB. I wonder if anyone noticed that in the seventh episode, the one called 'To Catch A Rat', the man who played Flyer was Ian Hendry? He was the star of the original Avengers series in 1961, with Steed as the co-star. For whatever reason he left the show after the first season and Steed became the star.
