Product Description

As Laura and Remington continue to fight crime, and their growing attraction to each other, Laura catches tantalizing glimpses into her partner's mysterious and very private past. For Remington is always reluctant to accept cases involving any of his old acquaintances, no matter what side of the law they're on. Yet despite the secrets, the twosome know they need to be able to trust each other completely after a series of investigations puts them directly in the line of fire.

Amazon.com

For Steele's sophomore year, Murphy and Bernice are out and Mildred Krebs (Emmy-magnet Doris Roberts) is in. She gets pulled into the orbit of private investigators Laura Holt (Stephanie Zimbalist) and Remington Steele (Pierce Brosnan) when she audits their agency in the two-part season opener ("Steele Away With Me"). Krebs follows the duo to Acapulco, where she helps with a case, and ends up abandoning the IRS for the more glamorous world of detective work. Other changes include a revamped title sequence and a new loft for Holt when a failed assassination attempt results in the destruction of her home ("Red Holt Steele").

While Krebs represents a welcome addition, wily quick change artist Major Descoine (Guy Boyd), who is introduced a few episodes later ("Steele Framed"), is another matter. He'll get away the first time only to return towards the end of the season ("Elegy in Steele") to bedevil Holt and Steele again (much like the slippery Murdoc in producer Lee David Zlotoff's MacGyver). As usual, Steele continues to derive mystery-solving inspiration from cinema classics like Casablanca ("Red Holt Steele") and The Man Who Knew Too Much ("Steele Sweet on You"). Romance between the two continues, as well, but the detectives are too professional to rush anything.

The second season also provides Holt with more clues about Steele's mysterious past, like his stints as "The Kilkenny Kid" ("Steele Knuckles and Glass Jaws") and "The Great Savini" ("High Flying Steele"). As for Steele, he gains a slick new means of transportation: a 1936 Auburn Speedster ("Love Among the Steele"). Guest stars include future primetime staples Delta Burke and Jane Kaczmarek ("Altared Steele"), Jeffrey "Principal Rooney" Jones ("A Steele at Any Price"), and (briefly) Miguel Sandoval ("Steele Eligible"), who will go on to work with writer/producer Glenn Gordon Caron (Moonlighting) on Medium. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Customer Reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed season 1, but I forgot how much better this show got in season 2.
A. Hansen
Stephanie Zimbalist and Pierce Brosnan are perfectly cast as PI Laura Holt and the boss she conjured up, Remington Steele.
clervaux
The series was always delightful because it was fun, done with panache and done with a little tongue in cheek.

With the first season recently released, we get a holiday treat with season 2 of Remington Steele to be released less than four months later in November. While season one is my personal favorite, this season is still strong, making this one of my all time favorite tv series. Gone are James Read and Janet DeMay, but Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) joins the cast permanently. Now that Remington and Laura have an established working relationship, we get to see them working more in tandem while they explore their relationship. Fortunately, the mysteries are still strong. The chemistry between the leads is even stronger.

Red Holt Steele, one of the best episodes in the entire series, appears in this season, blowing up Laura's house from the first season and preparing the way for her well-known loft apartment that becomes so familiar throughout the rest of the series. Another of my personal favorites, Love Among the Steele, explores the history of an Auburn speedster.

Format: DVD
The debonair ex-con-man and strait-laced detective return in the second season of "Remington Steele." This smart, funny detective series was one of the last of its kind, wonderfully odd and full of sometimes all-too-realistic crimes to be solved. The second season is, if anything, more polished than the first.

Things have changed a lot since Laura Holt's (Stephanie Zimbalist) fictional boss came to life, in the form of a nameless thief with a taste for the good life (Pierce Brosnan, pre-Bond). Now the wild detective cases continue, with a new ally: Mildred Krebs (Doris Roberts), an IRS agent who decides to join in on the thrilling ride. Too bad she doesn't know the truth about Steele.

The agency deals with a bunch of new, strange crimes: An amnesiac bigamist who is about to be murdered, international art thieves, mystery weekends, poisoned TV dinners, babies and boxers, aging jewel thieves, tracking down the jewels that Steele once tried to steal, and criminals in the circus.

Sure, there's comedy -- Laura and Steele have to deal with Laura's sister's marital problems at a dental convention, where someone is trying to steal a set of false teeth. But more dangerous cases abound -- Laura's house is bombed, and Steele is stalked by a mysterious enemy who is determined to see him dead... except that he never offended this man.

Time polished the rough edges of "Remington Steele" -- the second season flows more gracefully than the first did. Things have settled into their necessary grooves; don't expect as much "what's your name" demands and inter-office bickering. Just more character devopment and wild cases.

The most notable change is that Bernice and Murphy are no more.

Remington Steele 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.
