DANGER 5: SEASON 1
And many others....
The DANGER 5 crew is ( from top left clockwise )... Tucker ( Sean-James Murphy ), Jackson ( David Ashby ), Claire ( Amanda Simons ), Pierre ( Aldo Mignone ), and Ilsa ( Natasa Ristic )
The Australian television show called DANGER 5, takes place in some sort of "what if" alternative universe.
Hitler is still alive and causing mayhem every chance he gets. He's hell-bent on ruling the world, and only DANGER 5 can stop him.
DANGER 5 is a live action tribute to men's adventure magazines. It also seems to have been influenced by 1960s spy shows, and a few other things.
Season one of DANGER 5 is apparently composed of seven 25 minute episodes. They are as follows...
PILOT ( AKA DIAMOND GIRLS )
We're introduced to the DANGER 5 team. Their mission is to stop Hitler at all costs.
Tucker: "He never misses a chance to see Madame Giulietta and her sinful thighs"
Tucker: "They call us danger 5"
I DANCED FOR HITLER
Hitler is stealing most of the world's monuments, but for what purpose?... For EVIL REASONS dum-ass!
Colonel: "Shut up girl!"
Rene: "Son of a whore!"
Pierre: "I burn for you!"
Dog robot: "Sexy bitch mode activated"
LIZARD SOLDIERS OF THE THIRD REICH
Hitler is using dinosaurs in his latest quest for world domination, and DANGER 5 must stop him.
Tucker: "How dare you sneak up on me, with that willy-nilly improvisational gibberish!"
G.I.: "It's as big as a house, get out of here!"
Flying reptile: "Bleed!, bleed!"
KILL-MEN OF THE RISING SUN
Japanese planes are controling Chinese skys with the help of Hitler. So it's up to DANGER 5 to stop them... Oh, I almost forgot to mention that Japan has disappeared!
Tucker: "Hey Claire, I won, I'm the winner"
Claire: "You can't treat me like one of your opium harlots!"
HITLER'S GOLDEN MURDER PALACE
The team goes to Hitler's Moroccan casino to stop him from producing gold guns.
Ilsa: "American arsehole"
Jackson: "I'm banging her Rommel... I'm banging her Rommel... I'm banging her Rommel"
Claire: "Who needs a gun, when you have imagination?"
FRESH MEAT FOR HITLER'S SEX KITCHEN
Hitler takes over the PALOMINO whorehouse in Switzerland... Fun times for all!
Pierre: "Lemon San Diegos?, I don't believe I've tried those before"
Nazi evil doer: "What's a matter Burger, you a fruit or something?!"
Hot nazi babe: "Screw me, you American dog!"
The DANGER 5 team goes to the no longer "lost" city of Atlantis. Their goal is to obtain a weapon that might defeat Hitler.
Killroy: "What's a matter Tucker, chicken?"

DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
I fucking love it!
DANGER 5 is incredibly clever, funny, and sexy!
I also love their use of miniatures and stop motion animation.
Everyone involved with DANGER 5 did a truly outstanding job.
There are some "running gags". They involve, Hitler jumping out of a window, retro style TV commercials ( integrated into each episode ), and recipes for alcoholic beverages.
The DANGER 5 DVD was released by SBS in Australia ( which is region 4 territory ).
Even if it was a "region free" or "multi region" DVD, I would not buy it, because I've had nothing but problems with those types of discs.
Anyway, several people have posted complete episodes on YOU TUBE.
I'm happy I was able to watch the entire season... Now, if they would only release a REGION ONE DVD....
