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.

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.

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 video has not been remastered. Still good quality though. I enjoyed the show when it aired and it is fun to revisit. Technology has advanced and obviously dated the show. However, it is pleasant to watch a good show without today's added (and unnecessary) profanity, sex, political and social agendas.

1st 3 seasons are great...but what the heck...do they not realize that this whole show is built upon the secret and unfulfilled attraction of the 2 main characters...and upon Ms. King being a novice in their relationship...Season 4 is a whole different show that does not interest me. They could have still "advanced" the relationship and the show by having them get closer and having her family find out more about the two of them, while keeping the whole premise and attraction of the show in tact. A show about them talking about buying a house and horses and being all over each other is not interesting...that kind of explicit relationship is all over tv and is not what made the show great in its 1st 3 seasons.

I've ordered each season as it came out on DVD and have watched this last season a lot more slowly as I do not want to get the the final episode! I'm sure it'll be a set that I watch again after a time. Wish there were more seasons! Sad to see "Amanda's" role slimmed down so in some episodes of Season 4, but realise it was necessary because of her health issues. Still, great show, great season!

While other kids my age watched Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles, I raced home every day from school to catch re-runs of Scarecrow and Mrs. King. I am so pleased that I now own the complete series and I enjoy watching these when I am tired of all the junk that can be found on TV.
