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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

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
