Since NBC cancelled Remington Steele after the fourth year, the truncated fifth is often dismissed as a contractual obligation. When word got out that Brosnan was to be 007, renewed ratings justified a stay of execution (otherwise, he'd have donned the Bond duds sooner). At least Brosnan and Zimbalist weren't tied to a full season, but rather three two-hour movies. Most fans consider these episodes the weakest, because of the bickering, the bogus wedding, and Jack Scalia's meddling Tony Roselli. Still, they do tie up several loose ends, like the identity of Steele's father, in a tidy fashion. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

As the season opens, Laura Holt (Stephanie Zimbalist) returns to England, trying to keep Steele (Pierce Brosnan) from running afoul of Scotland yard. He's masquerades as an assassin while looking for clues to his past -- and a murder happens. But even back in America, their problems don't cease -- and some of them are very funny.
Among other things, the agency investigate a wrestler, missing experimental pigs, faux obituaries, a body that fell onto a airline luggage carousel, a self-improvement spa where "accidents" keep happening, tell-tale butlers, missing caviar, and deal with an inept would-be detective whose latest scheme gets a man killed. Steele and Laura are even declared dead -- and Mildred (Doris Roberts) is the prime suspect in their "murder."
And on the personal front, Laura finds a doctored photo of her in a porno, Steele apparently gambles away the agency, and Mildred becomes a radio star. But the fourth season takes a nasty turn when Steele finds that he'll be deported unless he gets a green card -- and it seems that Laura is the only one available...
The fifth season was done for contractual reasons, and the stars didn't want to do it, since it led to them losing out on roles they wanted. So, they only did a trio of movies, which rather hastily wrap up the threads of the series -- mainly Steele's past, Steele and Laura's relationship. It's very light on detective work, but it does give us a satisfactory finale.Read more ›
For those who haven't seen the show, season four continued the excellent plot lines and easy banter between the stars. The truncated season five was made up of three two-part episodes. I could have done without the Roselli character put in as a rival love interest for Laura. This may have influenced my rating of this set, but you aren't allowed half star rating so I went with the five star rating.
They did however bring a conclusion to the series and that is what's important. Now I can pull out the season one DVDs and start watching all over again.
Highly recommended for season four. Season five is a reserved recommendation but since they are packaged together you don't have a choice.
I just had an additional thought. Since all the stars are still alive, I'd like to see a 2 hour made for television movie that takes place 20+ years later. Maybe with the children grown and ready to take over Remington Steele Investigations.
