Another good episode of the New Avengers
29 May 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Yes, another topic in the pure line of the previous AVENGERS schemes. Espionage, of course, but brilliantly done, with of course the "new touch" which the producers could not avoid. But for the rest, you have a pretty effective, awesome western atmosphere which sometimes reminds me WESTWORLD - the movie, not the series. Purdey is terrific as the so convincing gunlady.
