I will always remember my mom (passed away last year) and me staying up after the evening news to watch reruns of the New Avengers back in the 80s. Later I discovered the originals and fell in love with them. I have never seen anything prior to Mrs. Peel, however. As a huge Game of Thrones fan, I'm embarressed to admit that I didn't realize, until very recently, that Diana Rigg plays Olenna Tyrell. I know she's pushing 80, but in my heart she will always be Emma Peel.
The other night the wife and I were watching "This is Spinal Tap" and during the party scene who is one of the guests? I shouted from the living room, "Holy crap! It's Count Iblis!" The wife ran in from the kitchen, took a look at the screen and said, "oh, yeah!" :lol Again, my wife is the best!
