Now, does this look too good to be true or what?
Eye-busting retro design, bizarre concepts, nostalgic stop-motion dinosaurs!
What Danger 5 seems to be — in case you haven’t heard of it and haven’t guessed from the trailer — is an online action comedy series parodying ’60s TV/film adventure frolics and … anything else that comes up.
Set in a bizarre, 1960s inspired version of World War II, action comedy series DANGER 5 follows a team of five spies on a mission to kill 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 Britain and Pierre from Europe. Each episode Danger 5 unravels another of Hitler’s diabolic schemes and travels across a myriad of exotic locations spanning the globe. The action and offbeat humour never relents as Danger 5 mounts a series of thrilling missions which include discovering Josef Mengele’s perverted Antarctic death circus, busting down Erwin Rommel’s golden murder casino and posing as exotic dancers in an attempt to take out Hitler at his own birthday party.
Danger 5: The Diamond Girls is coming to YouTube on 21st November 2011 (at 10 pm Australian EST), in gloriously gaudy colour on the Dinosaur Worldwide Channel, courtesy of SBS Australia.
