Retro is all the rage these days. Whether it’s music, clothes, or technology, the times, they aren’t a-changin’ as we grow more nostalgic about the days of yore. That’s why it’s even cooler to see classic TV tropes make their way onto the newest form of entertainment and storytelling: web series.
This is where DANGER 5 comes in. The brand new web miniseries is everything we loved (and laughed about) from shows like The Avengers, Mission: Impossible, Thunderbirds are GO! and several other classically campy series from the 60’s. Here’s a brief synopsis.
Set in a bizarre, 1960’s inspired version of World War II, action comedy series DANGER 5 follows a team of five spies on a mission to kill Adlolf Hitler.
Danger 5 is the finest group of special operatives the Allies have to offer; Jackson from the USA, Tucker from Australia, Ilsa from Russia, Claire from Brittain, and Pierre from Europe. In each episode, Danger 5 unravels another of Hitler’s Diabolical Schemes as they travel across a myriad of exotic locations.
Don’t let the expensive worlds fool you, this series is more a spoof of those shows than anything else and it hits it right on the nose. The series is currently in its second week of a five part miniseries “The Diamond Girls.”
DANGER 5 comes from the creative geniuses who brought the Internet Italian Spiderman a few years back. After years of silence, creators Dario Russo and David Ashby have decided to stick to the hokey 60’s satire with a charge into the spy genre.
