Brought the entire run of The Saint as there was a sale on the Network site for the Jubilee. First couple of episodes make it look as if, much like The Persuaders (and most of his 80's Bond films) the plots aren't going to be worth very much but Sir Roger is just awesome enough to make the whole thing watchable. Even if it did sound suspiciously like he was trying an American accent in the second episode. Hell, for the first episode he spends most of it just knocking back free cocktails in a pub before pulling Shirley Eaton without even trying.

I don't have the slightest clue what he does though. IIRC the book version is a thief, but there's been no indication yet in the show what has made him "The famous Simon Templer!".
