Right now, nothing appeals to me any better than "The Avengers," so that's what you're going to get on this fine Wednesday, March 2021!
"The Cybernauts" was the third episode from the fourth season of "The Avengers," and aired March 28, 1966, almost exactly 55 years ago, and it's still just as good as the day they made it!
Not even a shotgun can stop the mayhem!
Steed remarks that this would be a good shotgun for shooting chandeliers!
Something big is at the door!
And after the death and destruction, another pen is at the scene of the crime!
This gal is supposed to be pretty tough, but Mrs. Peel disposes of her easily!
This is a pretty funny moment that made me wonder if it was in the script or impromptu. Mrs. Peel is dusting the room, and then she dusts off Steed a little bit too.
Try and wrap your brain around this fact. KISS have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but neither Patrick Macnee or Diana Rigg do!!
The guy in charge of all the mayhem is Dungeon Hero Michael Gough, as mean Dr. Armstrong! Shame, shame, Michael Gough also does not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
The big Cybernaut robots under Dr. Armstrong's control are tuned in to anyone who has one of his guidance pens on them, so he kindly gives one to Steed!
Boy, would I like to have this table full of toys!
Steed finally gets to meet the big guy while he's in his dormant state, but that doesn't last for long!
I love all the monitors in Dr. Armstrong's lab!
They plant the homing device pen meant for Steed on the maintenance man robot, and the two Cybernauts duke it out!
Dr. Armstrong loses his shit! He can't believe he's been foiled by John Steed and Mrs. Peel!
The two robots beat each other senseless, and become comepletely non-functional, and Mrs. Peel can't believe she was able to push the hit man robot over with one finger!
I'll be back on Saturday with the followup episode they did in 1967 that's in colour, that was called "Return Of The Cybernauts," so stay tuned
