Bottom of the barrel

That's for me the worst AVENGERS episode sever. First, no AVENGERS spirit at all. Second, even for another series, this remains a flat, tepid episode, even shot mostly in France; my country. But that's not the point. I guess that's the influence of other countries than UK that explains the nullity of this plot. But that remains agreeable to watch, not that boring. That's the only good point. But, please, forget the AVENGERS.
