UK distributor, Network, always has something exciting to check out. We often refer to them as the Criterion Collection for retro action. In fact, Network has beefed up their Youtube channel with a large collection of trailers, including spots for their upcoming Blu-ray Retro Action series. Three volumes of classic British spy-show compilations will be released in Hi-Def on February 28th! Here is a trailer for Retro Action Vol 2, which sports thrilling moments from The Saint, The Prisoner, Danger Man/Secret Agent, Man in a Suitcase, and Gideon's Way. It's worth seeing just for the baddie wearing a Fez and an eye-patch. Priceless! Check out their Youtube channel here.

  1. These are nice collections for those who don't have the cash, or the patience, to sit through the full sets. Here you just get one or two episodes of the same show and also can pick and chose other shows you might not be familiar with, but want to see more after getting a taste.

    I'm in Miami filming episodes 4 and 5. Show prmieres April 14th at 8 on ABC.
