Episodes Series 6:

The Forget-Me-Knot
 

Brief: Brief: This last volume contained a bonus third episode on the final video cassette. This was the Series 6 opener, The Forget-Me-Knot. This release marked the first time that Series 5 had been issued as a complete set anywhere in the world (albeit in four sets) and also set the trend for the next decade during which all releases of this season would erroneously (though understandably) include this Series 6 episode. The Avengers Declassified was instrumental in ensuring that the episode was finally placed correctly, on the Series 6 set, when The Avengers was remastered and reissued on DVD by Optimum/Studio Canal in 2010.

All episodes were missing their 'The Avengers in Color' front tags.
