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.]]>
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

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.Read more ›
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.
