Remington Steele - Season Two
Frequently Bought Together

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.

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.

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

If I could give this show a 100 stars, I would. Love and obsessed with Pierce Brosnan, and his character on the show. Debonair, charming, sincere and goofy all at the same time. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sapna Hira
This series is right up there with Moonlighting. Pierce Brosnan develops his acting and comedic chops and the rest is history. Never seen it? Get it! Seen it but don't own it? Read morePublished 6 months ago by Ivanhoe
