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 showed up and assumed the identity of the nonexistent Steele! 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 a classic film buff and would make constant references to films of the 1930's and 1940's 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. 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. And it was always fun as little tidbits of Steele's past were discovered by Laura. Season one had one of the best episodes (Vintage Steele) as the tables were turned and Steele got a glimpse at Laura's past!
The overall quality of the show improved with season two as Doris Roberts was added to the cast as Mildred Krebs, and two other characters were lost.Read more ›
there are three shows on one side and two on the other which makes it easy to damage
My only reason for giving only four stars is the box. The double side DVD system is not to my liking. It gives a 'cheap' touch to a glamorous series. It also makes it very easy to damage the discs and the extra material is spread all over the discs, which is sad since it is very nice extra material.
I have an European edition of the first season, which is of much higher quality. I will definitely buy the rest of the seasons as they are released in Europe to have a better Remington box. But the series is just great!
