Underwater assignment
6 June 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Well, that's definitely not my favourite, but not the worst episode of the series, and the season. Pure espionage with no real AVENGERS spirit; at least for my own point of view. It seems to be the last of the whole show, that began - for AVENGERS series - back in 1961. If you crave for weird and funny stuff, that's exactly for you. However that point doesn't make it AVENGERS series label worth. I prefered the two previous episodes, even lousier than this one.
