LOL! You're all right!
I do love Emma Peel--she's the embodiment of sexy + independent + cool. I loved that she was the one that beat up 18 bad guys while Steed poked at the air with his umbrella. And I did love the catsuit. I totally want to be Emma for Halloween sometime.
(Random: I thought it was hilariously fitting that Niles and Frasier Crane idolized Steed growing up.)
