Good Value For the Money I paid!
You Only get a few episodes of each Series!
If you are a serious about collecting each series in its entirety,
then keep looking.The manufactures advertising is somewhat misleading.

What's Inside the Box? Nov. 11 2008
By Richard Ball - Published on
This is a 14-DVD set from A&E with selections from four "cult TV" Brit spy/adventure shows: The Prisoner, The Persuaders!, The Champions, and The Protectors. OK, The Prisoner isn't exactly a spy show, but then, what is it, anyway? The problem is, the box doesn't tell you what's included. It just says that it includes "debut episodes" from each of the four series, contains 14 DVDs, and runs for approximately 38 hours and 30 minutes. I contacted A&E and asked them exactly what the contents were, but they couldn't tell me -- but they could and did ask me if I wanted to buy it for $199!

Dec. 2008 Update: The product is now listed on, complete with a full list of contents. A&E has also provided a full description of contents. Based on contents, I would upgrade my rating to ****. As is usual with A&E offerings, don't expect subtitles.

This megaset contains:

* The first 13 episodes of The Persuaders!, which equals "Set 1", a $36 value (as of Dec. 2008). If you love Roger Moore in the Saint, you will like him in The Persuaders!. Series features the world's largest telephone answering machine. Near the end of the series, see a cameo appearance of Mr. Moore's young daughter. An enthusiastic glove-wearing Tony Curtis crosses the pond as the improbably named Danny Wilde. He runs circles around Roger Moore who, by the end of the series, had Bond, James Bond, on his mind.

* The first 15 episodes of The Champions, which equals "Set 1", a $72 value (as of Dec. 2008). A bit more zing than The Persuaders!, this set will help you get in touch with your heightened super-powers. Darth Vader, or, at least, the actor who played him, makes a guest-appearance. A bit like the Avengers.

* The first 26 episodes of The Protectors, which equals "Season One", an $80 value (as of Dec. 2008). Robert Vaughn escapades his way across Europe in these 30-minute slightly out-of-focus episodes.

* 3 episodes of The Prisoner -- a great way of sampling this series, but you really need to buy the complete set so you can join the rest of us in being upset with the final episode.

The megaset is a good deal and a sensible buy, because, if you like what you see, you can complete your sets by buying the second set in each of the three respective series (The Prisoner excepted).

One final problem: it is called "The Spy Collection" on the box, but is listed as "The Spy Collection Megaset" at Amazon and as "Cult TV Spy Collection" at A&E.

spy collection May 3 2009
By Patrick J. Faeser - Published on
Verified Purchase
If you're not a completist and you get this box set for 45 dollars or under, then you've found a great bargain full of wonderful TV spy entertainment from the late 1960's/early 1970's. It contains 14 dvds featuring four episodes of the Prisoner, the first season of the Protectors (26 episodes), and half or so episodes of the Persuaders and the Champions (13 and 15 episodes respectively). Enjoy!

Excellent value, excellent quality April 3 2011

The Spy Collection Megaset (The Prisoner / The Persuaders / The Champions / The Protectors)
For six bucks, who can complain? These disks are full of clear, first rate transfers to DVD as opposed to the grainy
mess you usually expect from such collections, these look like they were made yesterday. This set is a bargain. Do the math-
over 38 hours of early British spy series for this price is a steal. It may well satisfy your urge, or serve to whet
your appetite for more of a certain series -ether way, you wont be sorry.

The Persauders/Protectors worth the price. March 15 2011
By Bela - Published on

First I have the complete collection of the Persauders one of the best
tv series ever made! Curtis and Moore made a great team. This series
should've been on for years. I got this set for The Protectors and
The Prisoner which I haven't seen since I was a kid. The Champions
I don't recall but would like to see it. I thought this was a great
package for the price to see these shows again. If your a fan of
these kind of tv shows this is a great package to start with.

Fun 60s and 70s escapism when you're in the mood June 21 2011
By Patty St. George - Published on
Verified Purchase
England was home to many super-cool spy shows in the 60s and 70s. My favorite is "The Protectors" but I also enjoyed "The Persuaders". I had never seen "The Champions" and I remembered not getting "The Prisoner" when it ran in reruns when I was younger. I would agree with others who have said that "The Prisoner" is not really a spy show and I admit that I still don't really get it. But The Champions was fun. While the production quality is primitive, the episode topics ring hauntingly true today and it's fun to see Dr. Alan Quartermaine in his prime. "The Persuaders" is just a fun romp through southern France and London with Moore and Curtis and if you enjoy that, you'll find this part of the collection fun. As mentioned, "The Protectors" is, for me, the best in terms of locations, plots, action/adventure and production--a more laid back Man From Uncle with a new crew. Fun when you're in the mood to escape a little.
