Product Description

Scarecrow and Mrs. King: The Complete Fourth Season

A single mother in suburban Washington D.C. discovers she has a talent for espionage work when she meets a dashing undercover agent--but balancing her duties as a spy with her responsibility as a parent proves constantly entertaining in this romantic-adventure series.

Amazon.com

By their final season, Amanda King (Kate Jackson), a mother of two, and Lee "Scarecrow" Stetson (Bruce Boxleitner), a former ladies' man, had become Agency colleagues, but they continue to keep their relationship under wraps--otherwise, they wouldn't be able to catch the bad guys. And with the Cold War in full effect, there are plenty of Eastern bloc operatives with dodgy accents to keep them busy. The year begins with a two-parter in which Stetson pretends to fall for a Soviet spy, but when the plan backfires, Amanda has to prove that he hasn't been "playing footsie with the Russians," as their boss, Billy (Mel Stewart), puts it. Once they put that business behind them, Lee proposes, and the two make (secret) plans for the future. After awhile, though, Amanda's mother, Dotty (Beverly Garland, delightful as ever), and others start to catch on.

In the meantime, Lee receives damning information about his late parents, who also worked in intelligence, and sets out to clear their names (Jackson directed this episode, which features film noir-like flashbacks starring Wendie Malick). Other cases involve terrorists, kidnappers, art thieves, shady toy manufacturers, and Dotty's gambling-addicted boyfriend (though the actors who play Amanda's sons still appear in the credits, they garner minimal screen time). In the process, evildoers poison Lee, shoot Amanda, and manipulate Billy's memories in scenarios involving familiar faces like Dennis Haysbert and Blair Underwood. If Francine (Martha Smith) assists with most operations, Dr. Smyth (Myron Natwick) hinders more than he helps--Lee describes his high-blown speech as "verbal fruit salad." Due to Jackson's health problems, which contributed to the show's demise, Smith fills in for the final three episodes. In retrospect, Scarecrow and Mrs. King was a sweet, sincere series that shares much of the same romantic appeal as Remington Steele. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Yes, some would wonder why I rate Scarecrow and Mrs. King at five stars. True, some of the plots are a little corny and trite; true, the eighties-style wardrobe can get a little garish; true, some of the sets aren't the best; however, the acting and the dialogue amply make up for any trivial shortcomings antagonists of Scarecrow and Mrs. King can contrive. All of the main actors do a superb job in making a very simple and humorous story come to life. The interaction between Lee and Amanda particularly flares with delightful warmth of varying degrees. One of the most alluring aspects of the series is the development of their relationship. I have seen the first two seasons and find myself pleasantly addicted. The third and fourth seasons, though, I have yet to see. Naturally, my anticipation of their release on DVD is great, and I am issuing a plea to Warner Bros to release the remaining seasons as soon as possible.

This season was to be the best, but real life interrupted and changed the script. Kate Jackson had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and had been in severe pain, and was very ill from it. She soldiered on for her fans. By mid season she just didn't have it in her to continue, hence the entrance of Francine to a more prominent role in the series. No spoilers here, however it was still a good season all things considered.

I would love for them to bring this back, you just don't see shows like this anymore. Everything has to either be over the top dramatic, or over the top comedy...very few shows combine them both as well as this show did.

One recommendation...If you like this show...try Covert Affairs.

This episode is one of the all-time great ones. Full of passion, and quite intense, it is a highlight of this amazing series.

Why on earth are all kinds of no-good old TV shows made available on DVD, but the one and only truly great series of the eighties is left out?????

It’s always a joy to see the final season of an older TV show hit DVD since sometimes it takes forever. Warner Brothers didn’t make us wait super long for the final season of Scarecrow & Mrs. King. They’ve released one a year for four years now.

Romance is definitely in the air in season four since Lee “Scarecrow” Stetson (Bruce Boxleitner) and divorced mother of two Amanda King (Kate Jackson) have secretly started dating. They are keeping their relationship a secret since they both work for the Agency, a secretive spy branch that seems to track foreign agents in America but all over the world (think combining the FBI and CIA while running parallel to them). Among the people they aren’t telling are their boss Bill Melrose (Mel Stewart) and fellow agent Francine Desmond (Martha Smith). Amanda’s family doesn’t even know she’s a spy, so they definitely can’t tell her mother Dotty (Beverly Garland) or her two sons Phillip and Jamie (Paul Stout and Greg Morton).

Of course, all this romance comes with danger as the two work cases that involve national security. Lee’s past comes back several times as a Soviet spy tries to get revenge in the two part opener. He also learns something about his parents who died when he was a boy. One of Lee’s contacts appears to die, only he might have faked his death. Amanda, meanwhile, is finally on her way to becoming a full blown agent – that is until a photo from her past threatens her status as an agent at all. The duo attempt to track down a man who has found a way to contaminate Washington DC’s water before terrorists get a hold of him. And even Amanda’s mother gets into the act in one episode when her new boyfriend is not who he claims to be.

About two thirds of the way through the season, Lee and Amanda marry.

So glad Amazon has this available for Prime members. Frankly, this is why I chose the 1 month trial membership and I will probably keep it now. Scarecrow & Mrs King was one of my favorite shows when I was growing up. Love that Seasons 1 & 2 are out on DVD and now I can stream seasons 3 & 4 while I wait for the next DVD release. Thank you Amazon!

This is without a doubt one of the best collections around - I loved it in the 80s and I still love it now. I really hope that Warner Bros intends to issue Seasons 3 and 4 or I will be devastated!!!

I cannot express how happy I am that this is finally available! There are so many excellent episodes at the start of the fourth season. I know, later on the series falls a bit when KJ is barely on screen and there is no season/series finale in which we finally get to see them admit everything to Mother and the boys, Billy and Francine (that's what fanfiction is foe) but considering Kate' circumstances (cancer battle) at the time, it's forgivable. I only wish TV then was like today in the sense that, nowadays, they would've gone on hiatus and finished/aired once she'd had time to recover. I haven't given up hope for some sort of reunion special movie (Dr. Quinn got like 48 of those!) but in the meantime, I am super happy to have this to complete my set. Watching the old VHS tapes I made in high school just aren't the same... and I'm thrilled to finally see all the scenes syndication cut to make room for more (stupid) commercials. <3 SMK
