I have no idea. Didn't know that Austin Powers was a bra gun enthusiast. Not that I'd put it past him.

There's a later scene in Austin Powers (didn't care for the sequels) where he takes on some babe-bots and their bosom firepower seemed major. Fortunately, our hero overcame all !

"Bosom firepower," makes me feel warm and fuzzy. Not really so much.

I wonder if Austin Powers is amusing in England? Hope so.

Mike Meyers is a very talented guy. After watching a minute of a re-run, complete with brassier guns I still chuckle. It's good to be a chuckle head once a day.

Glad you enjoyed the scene ! I'm actually a Brit, but having been in the US for ages, can't be sure of the Brit view, though suspect no problem. I found the sequels offensive, but might just be me. Still, really enjoy the original Austin Powers -- perfect for me !

My knee-jerk attitude is too often to hate EVERYTHING. This makes for less than an ideal life, but I never promised me a rose garden.
I had the great good fortune to spend my middle two years in high school in England. I learned boatloads, it was a wonderful experience.

My problem with the two sequels was the excess of "humor" based more on embarrassment (even a little disgust) than wit. Wit goes over well in England, many highly successful witty shows over time. To me, too many efforts these days seem to rely on "potty humor". Shrek engages some in that, but there's sufficient wit to balance it. Haven't watched the sequels yet, though I understand the first is again the best. Some good examples of "British" humor are the BBC comedies "Are You Being Served?", "Keeping Up Appearances", "As Time Goes By", "Waiting For God" and "Chef". More off-kilter examples are "Red Dwarf", "Fawlty Towers", "Black Adder", and "Monty Python's Flying Circus".

Humor dependent upon the embarrassment of others isn't funny. It actually crosses the next border into the actual pain of others lately. When the top is corrupt the bottom slowly follows suit.
I'm unfamiliar with some of the entertainments you mention, of the ones I know I rate "Black Adder" as the most full of laughs.

I liked Red Dwarf the first time around, but it doesn't age well. Or maybe I'm not aging well.

I've been tempted to buy the complete set of Monty Python on occasion. Trouble is that there's more annoying fol de rol and less really laughingable material. Always something.

I tended to find their efforts to be hit-or-miss. That's why I used the expression "off kilter" above, they were usually reaching deeply into the land of the absurd and that's far from mainstream Brit humor, "Red Dwarf" was kind of uneven too, but it's quirkiness was part of the appeal. If you ever have the opportunity to check out "Have You Been Served?", definitely do -- it's a true classic.

"The Avengers" embodies a healthy dose of Brit humor -- plots, sets and dialog. My favorite has always been the Mrs. Peel episodes, but that was partly due to Dianna Rigg ! But that's really a different flavor of show (spy Vs spy -- as is "The Prisoner"). The more mainstream shows deal with more real-life characters in more real-life situations. Truly excellent writing!

I got the entire box set of "The Prisoner" a while ago. It was definitely ahead of its time, it's less amusing as an antique.

"Secret Agent/Danger Man" (also Patrick McGoohan) gets well reviewed, but it seemed a bit of a slog when I bought the box set. However, I suspect the slog aspect comes significantly from watching episode after episode back-to-back. As I understand, many didn't care for "The Prisoner", perhaps a little too demanding of the viewer (a far cry from James Bond), "The Avengers" is easily more accessible, though multiple episodes back-to-back is still punishing after awhile.

Diana Rigg was indeed a toothsome lass. Oops, Dame Diana Rigg, where are my manners?

Dianna broke free of the type casting to go Shakespearean in "Mid Summer Night's Dream", a marvelous effort as I understand! I'm not clear what happened afterward, but the last I'm aware of is her being the host for Public TV mystery theater, which was always excellent! I was sorry to observe the aging of Patrick MacNee and Dianna, but I guess that's the way life is for real people. I will always hold a warm place in my heart for both those thespians !

Here's an odd thing....I am more unhappy/saddened seeing the greats of motion pictures and television age than I am in seeing my own face wrinkle...
