Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Remington Steele's fusion of whodunit mystery and screwball comedy burst onto television in 1982. After struggling to get clients to hire a female detective, Laura Holt (sultry Stephanie Zimbalist) invents a fictional boss named Remington Steele, whose dashing manly name draws in work. But while protecting some South African jewels, Holt runs across a mysterious thief and con-man (an elfin, baby-faced Pierce Brosnan) whom her client assumes is the nonexistent Steele--and when the case is resolved, the accidental detective decides he likes the work and sticks around, infuriating Holt with his arrogant ways and tantalizing her with his dashing good looks. Murders may occur at a winery, an island sex club, or a college reunion, but just about every episode plunders plot elements from classic movies like Bringing Up Baby, The Third Man, and The Trouble with Harry (even the theme song was written by film composer Henry Mancini). The writers openly acknowledge this influence by having Steele use ideas he's lifted from movies to solve crimes. The constant allusions to old films should be annoying, but the show demonstrates such a rich affection for the classics that these tips of the hat actually mesh with Remington Steele's world.

Remington Steele has become best known as Brosnan's launching pad (he later become James Bond in GoldenEye and its sequels), but Zimbalist was every bit as crucial to the show's success; her mixture of glamor and toughness gives the show a distinctly adult sexiness and grounds Brosnan's boyish charm. The dialogue sometimes slipped from arch camp to sheer cheese, but even at its most ridiculous (say, a scene where Holt and Steele question homeless bums while dressed in formal evening wear) Remington Steele remains an eminently watchable show, thanks to zippy plotting and the chemistry between Zimbalist and Brosnan. Some episodes clearly implied that the pair had become intimate, yet that didn't defuse their attraction. Even when the stories became a bit silly, the mutual respect and desire between Holt and Steele never lost its sophistication. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Before he was Bond... he was Remington Steele...Private eye Laura Holt (Stephanie Zimbalist) grudgingly accepts a new partner when a mystery man (Pierce Brosnan) assumes the identity of her fictitious boss, Remington Steele. Together, the two battle crime as as their feelings for each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Try this for a deep, dark secret.... April 6, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As one of my top three all time favorite shows, Remington Steele has it all: mystery, romance and humor. While the mysteries were strongest in Season 1--"In the Steele of the Night" won an Edgar Award--the series stayed pretty strong until near the end of the last full season. We won't even mention the follow-up "movies" that comprised the final season. It's fun to watch this first season and see familiar faces from film and TV before they became stars, such as Annie Potts, Delta Burke, Sharon Stone, and Pierce Brosnan himself. Don't miss nepotism at its best with guest appearances by Stephanie Zimbalist's father, Efrem Zimbalist Jr, and Brosnan's first wife, Cassandra Harris. Also, don't look for Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) yet; she didn't join the cast until the second season after James Read and Janet Demay left.

A list of season one episodes follows.

1. Licence to Steele
2. Tempered Steele
3. Steele Waters Run Deep
4. Signed, Steeled and Delivered
5. Thou Shalt Not Steele

8. Your Steele the One for Me

13. A Good Night's Steele
14. Hearts of Steele
15. To Stop a Steele
16. Steele Crazy After All These Years
17. Steele Among the Living
18. Steele in the News
19. Vintage Steele (top fan favorite)
20. Steele's Gold
21. Sting of Steele
22. Steele in Circulation

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mystery and Film Lover's Delight! April 15, 2005
Format:DVD
This was a truly stylish television show that tapped into the kind of Stanley Donen light mystery romance that is missing from the movies today. Pierce Brosnan and Stephanie Zimbalist were perfectly cast and the show only got better with each episode. The Henry Mancini theme music captured the feel of this light and sophisticated show tinged with humor perfectly. It was as evocative and as much a part of the show as his "Peter Gunn" theme had been decades before.

Laura Holt (Zimbalist) couldn't get her private detective agency off the ground in spite of her skills until she invented the phantom agency head, Remington Steele. Business was booming and everything was going swell until Pierce Brosnan shows up and assumes the roll of the nonexistent Steele, both around town and with clients. An uneasy alliance was formed that to the delight of fans moved more and more towards the romantic as time went by.

Brosnan's Steele was debonair and stylish, his past a shady mystery ala' "To Catch a Thief." Each season Laura discovered new things about his past in Ireland and his exploits in other countries. Steele was also a film buff and would make constant references to films of the 1930's and 1940's he would recall pertaining to the case. It made all us film buffs who knew just what he was talking about feel like we were insiders, and was one of the many charms of this wonderful show.

Brosnan and Zimbalist were a terrific screen couple in the tradition of all those ones we remember fondly. One could say they were our generations Nick and Nora Charles. There was a fun anticipation for viewers as week after week we watched the two become involved in a mystery while they danced around their growing affection for each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've seen the DVD set and its pretty sweet June 29, 2005
Format:DVD
Emblazoned across the cover for the Fox season one release of the popular 1980s show "Remington Steele" is a tagline that reads "Before he was James Bond he was ... Remington Steele" with a shot of reigning big-screen James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan in the title role. In fact, the actress who originally had top billing on the show, Stephanie Zimbalist, is nowhere in sight on any of the promotional materialS or final cover art.
Such is the power of Hollywood marketing, for it was Brosnan, not Zimbalist, who became the break-out star for the show, with Brosnan receiving more fan mail than the studio had ever received before for a single actor.
The plot for the fall 1982 show centered around Zimbalist's character Laura Holt who, as a female detective, found it impossible to be taken seriously (this was, after all, the early 1980s). In order to resolve this troubling set of circumstances, Holt invents a (as she puts it) "decidedly masculine superior."
All seems to be going well until (in a quite obvious tip of the hat to 1959s "North by Northwest") the character appears in the shape of Pierce Brosnan, who answers a page for the fictitious Steele so that he can escape from two thugs.
Assuming the role of Remington Steele on a permanent basis, Laura and he embark on a series of adventures that for this set are in the shape of 22 full-frame episodes that echo the plots of well-known classic mysteries-from "Murder on the Orient Express" to "The Maltese Falcon" to "And Then There Were None," a personal favorite of mine.
It was these intriguing mysteries and the one-upmanship banter between the two leads that makes the show such a joy to watch.

It is so hard to go back to the early 80's and watch Pierce Brosnan be so hot, yet so young at the same time. To watch the late70's & early 80's style of clothing and not shudder. Read more

Have lost some of my enthusiasm over the years. Doesn't quite live up to the writings of today's mysteries, but I still enjoy watching them somewhat.
