Product Description

Private investigators Laura Holt and Remington Steele are back, spanning the globe and uncovering murder, mystery, and intrigue wherever they go! From the exotic isle of Malta to the Emerald Isle of Ireland, and from the sultry French Riviera to the smoking hot Las Vegas Strip, no puzzle is too perplexing, no job is too dangerous, and no setting is too glamorous for the pair of super sleuths from the Remington Steele Detective Agency in the thrilling third season of Remington Steele!

For its third year, the Remington Steele Detective Agency decides to take a well-deserved rest on the French Riviera (season premiere "Steele at It"). Laura Holt (Stephanie Zimbalist) has a hidden agenda. She's hoping to strengthen her relationship with Steele (Pierce Brosnan), but they soon get caught up in a To Catch a Thief-styled caper. In an attempt to help a friend, Steele briefly returns to his criminal origins and swipes a jewel-encrusted dagger (which he was intending to return), but it takes Laura to extract him--and loyal assistant Mildred Krebs (Doris Roberts)--from the chaos that ensues. After that fiasco, the private eyes decide not to mix business with pleasure--despite the obvious attraction between them. So the romance cools a bit, but the most highly-rated season heats up with more exotic locales (and a greater emphasis on humor). After France, the trio travels to Malta ("Maltese Steele," "Puzzled Steele"), Las Vegas ("Diced Steele"), and Brosnan's native Ireland ("Steele Your Heart Away"). As with the second year, there's a new title sequence (a James Bond-type graphic replaces the movie house scenario). Naturally, some things remain the same, such as Steele's frequent film references, i.e. The Thin Man ("Gourmet Steele"), Arsenic and Old Lace ("Let's Steele a Plot"), and The Producers ("Springtime for Steele").

Guests during the 1984-1985 season, include Ray Wise ("A Pocketful of Steele"), John Larroquette ("Breath of Steele'), Geena Davis and Jean Smart ("Steele in the Chips," co-written by Zimbalist), and Zimbalist's father, Ephrem, as Steele's old pal, Daniel Chalmers ("Blue Blooded Steele"). Several living legends also drop by, like Yankee greats Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford ("Second Base Steele") and the glittering Hollywood trio of Dorothy Lamour, Virginia Mayo, and Lloyd Nolan (fan favorite "Cast in Steele"). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

The debonair ex-con-man and strait-laced detective return in the third 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, and this season solidifies its tight storytelling.

During a trip to the Riviera, Laura (Stephanie Zimbalist) decides to go the distance with Steele (Pierce Brosnan) at last -- only to have him enmeshed in a web of blackmail, murder, and a precious dagger. Needless to say, that puts a damper on her romantic plans. Questions about his past crop up again when he turns up in Ireland, suffering from amnesia, after trying to discover his origins.

But Steele's past isn't the only thing on these detectives' minds: a no-calorie cookie, a dead body that has to be kept hidden, restauranteurs trying to kill a savage critic, teenage pickpockets, baseball camps, obnoxious neighbors, Maltese treasure, and three aging movie stars ask for help in finding out who is trying to kill them.

The comedy is still firmly in place: There are sinister plots centering on murder, embezzlement and Steele's attempt to redeem a teenage pickpocket, who reminds him of himself many years before. But woven in those is plenty of barbed humour, such as corporate bigwigs scrabbling on the floor for a fat-free cookie.

Having gotten a solid formula in the second season, "Remington Steele" chugged along with more odd mysteries. Okay, few of these mysteries resemble real crimes (a comic strip inspires attacks on the cartoonist?), but they are often funny, witty and intelligent.

We only get a few hints about Steele's past -- he may be from Ireland, but not much more than that.

Mystery and film lovers were delighted when Remington Steele returned for a third season. This stylish show filled the void for those fond of the light mystery and romance Stanley Donen had brought to the big screen. Season three was fun in the extreme, offering lovers of sophistated television all the fun they could handle.

Pierce Brosnan and Stephanie Zimbalist were back in September of 1984 and so was the opening theme by Henry Mancini. The season opened with a bang on the French Riviera and before the season concluded the attractive stars would become involved in cases that would take them from Ireland to the Island of Malta.

Steele's references to classic films reached new heights when three huge stars from Hollywood's golden age appeared in "Cast in Steele." There was an episode where Laura had to travel to Ireland to help Steele recover his memory, and another which took place at a baseball camp. "Steele in the Chips" was a wildly fun episode involving the formula for a no-calorie chocolate chip cookie.

Guest stars like Lloyd Nolan, Geena Davis, Jean Smart, Virginia Mayo, Dorothy Lamour, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. (Stephanie's dad), and Michael Constantine, who appeared in two episodes, added flair to an already great show fans had grown to love.

"Remington Steele" was never about the guest stars, however, but rather Steele and Laura themselves. Brosnan was terrific as the debonair man of mystery with a somewhat shady past and Stephanie Zimbalist was truly wonderful as the founder of the detective agency that couldn't get off the ground until she invented Remington Steele. The anticipation of their romance kept viewers coming back each week just as much as the mysteries.

I'm so glad that the release dates between each season isn't taking forever.I have bought the first 2 seasons and passed them on to friends to watch.We have all enjoyed watching this great show with our kids and not having to fear them seing the kind of graphic violence and gore that so many shows feature today.I've just pre-ordered season 3 and I am really looking forward to enjoying it.I'm really hoping they will also release the further seasons of Hart to Hart in as timely a fashion.Hart to Hart and Remington Steele are two classic T.V. shows I remember fondly from my childhood.It's so great having something for the whole family to enjoy avaliable at last.Now if only they'd release Scarecrow and Mrs. King on DVD.

I thoroughly agree with the many reviewers who have praised this release and Remington Steele in general. I've been watching TV from its early days in the 1950s through the present and am convinced that Remington Steele was as good as general audience TV gets. No its not Shakespeare, but I don't think that most of us who watch TV really want weekly doses of Shakespeare. Remington Steele was a suberbly done combination of action, adventure, and romantic comedy with very good scripts and fine acting by attractive and appealing people. It was -- and still is -- consistently entertaining and no other series was better. I agree that the addition of Doris Roberts as Mildred Krebs made the second and third seasons (as well as later seasons not yet available on DVD) even better than the first season, and I thoroughly enjoyed the first season. If you are a fan of Remington Steele you've probably already bought the DVDs of the first two seasons and you'll love this third season too. If you've never seen Remington Steele or have forgotten how good this show was, please do yourself a favor and get this DVD set now. And, like so many other Remington Steele fans, I beg the studio to give us the remaining seasons on DVD as quickly as possible.

I've only got Season 2 (we watched Season 1 from the library) which I bought when the library's copy had some problems that cleaning didn't fix. Unfortunately, the Season 2 I bought had more problems then the library copy, so I exchanged it. The second Season 2 was almost 100% problem free,... Read More
