Trivia

The jacket that Colonel Chessbridge wears during the "briefing" scenes (black with white trim) is nearly identical to the jacket worn by Number 6 in "The Prisoner" (1967). That series is a pseudo-sequel to "Secret Agent" (1964) also known as "Danger Man". See more »

Best Thing on Australian TV
18 April 2012 | by ryanpotato7See all my reviews

I first watched Danger 5 on YouTube, the 'Diamond Girls' mini web-series. I immediately fell in love. I was even more excited when at the end of the last of the web-series there was the announcement that it would air on SBS One in February!

Each week I tuned into SBS to watch this hilarious show and I was never disappointed. The running jokes were always funny, like when the Eagle headed director came in to give the team their mission and Claire would interrupt, or how when Hitler escaped he always dived out the same window. I always found it funny and never found myself checking the guide or wondering off for some tea.

If you like over-the-top stories and action, definitely watch this television show. For anyone who has seen Black Dynamite and liked it, I guarantee you will love this.
