Wearing a breathing device can be a big disadvantage! (inspiring scenes from the Avengers)

This post will be a little different…

The bad news: There are no female scuba divers in this one, not even any woman at all.

But…. but… I think many of you will find this interesting nonetheless 😉

Some weeks ago I finished the Emma Peel episodes of “The Avengers” (the 60s TV show, not the superheroes).

No scuba women to be found there… but I did stumble upon two very interesting scenes!

In both scenes a man is wearing a breathing device (gas mask/FFM) and in both cases that becomes a massive problem.

Why that? And why is this inspiring? Check it out….

Here is the video:

(unlisted on Youtube as there are no frogwomen in it…)


Watch the video before you continue!

Ok, let’s start with the man with the gas mask who emerges from the closet…

There should have been gas in the room which should have knocked Steed out, but Steed found out about it.

So, no gas in the room and this actually gives Steed an easy opportunity to put the sneaky gas mask attacker to sleep.

He pinches his air hose thereby denying him any air. The attacker tries to get the gas mask off but Steed manages to prevent that.

So the attacker passes out.

I really like this scene a lot! Very inspiring….

Steed is thinking really quickly here as he immediately grabs the air hose of the guy, good job.

Now imagine the same scene… with a female attacker…. in color…. and with some sexy suit maybe 😉

Damn…. that would be even (much) more awesome!

In the second scene, Steed is the one with the breathing device and that quickly becomes his downfall!

The guys wrestle him down, turn off his air, and make sure that he can’t get the mask off…. nice thinking!

Very interesting that the producers have two very similar scenes like that in that season!

Maybe they had some kinks for such things 😉

It’s a little odd how quickly Steed passes out but ok.

Also, the air hose isn’t even connected anymore to the mask at the end… they cheated there.

But the principle stays the same….

I am thinking about having such a “stop the airflow” scene at the surface as well in a future video 😉

And then with a frogwoman… of course!

Wanna know the title of the movie?


(the scenes can be found in episode 5 and 15 of season 4)
