Many excellent sites already exist for The Avengers, (including David K. Smith's excellent The Avengers Forever, with whom we are now partnered to provide you with even more information), but The Nitpicker's Guide is different.
No matter how hard you try, or how good you are, at something,
you're going to make mistakes now and then. This site is an attempt
to chronicle all the "goof-ups" and oversights that occured during The
Avengers run (there were plenty in the first few years of the series as
older production technology and budget constraints made editing and
re-shooting almost impossible).
Rest assured, by no means do I mean to imply anything derogatory toward the series, or its producers or stars. On the contrary, I'm one of the series' biggest
fans with the 1963-64 Cathy Gale and 1965-66 Emma Peel seasons being my favorites. The Nitpicker's Guide is just a way to have some fun and maybe give you something new to
watch for the next time you view a particular episode.
The site will constantly
be a "work in progress" as I will be adding more as time goes on.
I currently own all of the episodes from the Cathy Gale and Emma Peel seasons as well as a select number of episodes of The New Avengers, and the lone available David Keel episode. A&E, in North America, is now releasing the Tara King series, so I will
review and post those as I am able to acquire them. If you have noticed
a nit that is not already mentioned here, or have any comments about the show, or something on this site,
please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Avengers"!
I look forward to hearing from you!
In the meantime, Happy
- Sam McCallie
