The Baron: The Complete Series
DVD: Pristine condition for a set this old. No gliches. 8 discs in 1 1/2 " wide cardboard boxed set.
Story: Made by ITC (The Saint w/ Roger Moore and Secret Agent/Danger Man w/ Patrick McGoohan) Simialar adventures of a spy for MI5/art dealer. Good supporting cast -- look for Jeremy Brett before he became S. Holmes. The series gets kudos for being the first action series based on John Creasy's jet set hero, the Baron (nickname, not title) who breaks espionage rings and brings criminal to justice. I gave Danger Man 5 stars, the Saint 5 stars -- why only 4 for the Baron when it's similar and in colour. First, I own all 3 sets. Steve Forester (The Baron) lacks the class and suave sophistication of Roger Moore whether in The Persuaders or The Saint and the wit and presence of Patrick MacGoohan. The stories are similar, but Forester simply can't carry the show. He's good. Moore and MacGoohan are great!
Suggest you buy the series, The Saint and Danger Man/Secret Agent Man, then decide if you want this set. too. If you like the stories in the former you will like the action packed adventure stories of the baron. The 3 are similar except for the presence of the leading man.
