Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
In addition to being one of the more clever romantic mystery series of the 1980s, Remington Steele made a star of handsome, dashing Pierce Brosnan, whose light-footed turn as an accidental detective proved a perfect shaking-and-stirring ground for the role of James Bond. The show's gimmick was deceptively simple: The eponymous investigator played by Brosnan was really just a front for plucky private investigator Laura Holt Stephanie Zimbalist, forced to invent a male counterpart to satisfy clients who were reluctant to entrust cases to a young woman. Brosnan's Steele is himself a man of mystery, a dashing if honorable thief who -- recognizing Holt’s ruse and beguiled by her beauty and spunk -- adopts the "Steele" name and joins the team. Beyond that, Remington's writers spiced up the show by making Steele a movie buff whose constant allusions to classic films not only reflected his pop-culture erudition but also sparked ideas or prompted action that saved the day. Even the episode titles were clever, each one involving a play on the title character's name. "Thou Shalt Not Steele" is notable for its casting of Brosnan's then wife, Cassandra Harris, in a key guest-star role. In "Etched in Steele," Holt, Steele and their Season 1 partners, Bernice Janet DeMay and Murphy James Read, try to learn who killed a famous female author of steamy romance novels. "Steele's Gold" is quite an offbeat installment, revolving around the theft of an old prospector's map and the detectives' trek through the desert in search of a lost gold strike. The best episode of the 1982-83 group is probably "In the Steele of the Night," which focuses on Laura's reunion with fellow co-workers -- a reunion in which old grievances are aired and murder rears its ugly head. This unusually ingenious hour won a 1983 Edgar Award the mystery world's equivalent of an Oscar for Best Episode in a Television Series.

    Remington Steele Is Not James Bond

    Being a fan of James Bond movies and having seen Pierce Brosnan as "JimBo" before his portrayal of Remington Steele, the similarities in characters were quite apparent. However, R.S. is a dorkier version of Bond (though he is still quite debonair). While some lines are cute, many are just plain corny. But if you're up for simply ogling Brosnan's gorgeous hair and relishing his British accent, this is your series. As far as the quality of the DVDs, the picture quality is good but sometimes the sound cuts out (mostly at the beginning, when the scene previews play).

    Outstanding TV Series

    Remington Steele was so much fun to watch!! Clever plots, great writing and wonderful leads. Stephanie Zimbalist and Pierce Brosnan had such wonderful chemistry. I have bought the entire series and I can watch it over and over. Why don't they make tv shows like this anymore??

    Watch Remington Steele - You will love it!

    Remington Steele is full of fun, romance, and sheer wit. The actors are quite entertaining and the plots are fun to watch. Totally recommend this TV program!

    what about Stephanie Zimbalist?

    Loved, loved Remington Steele. The chemistry between the two main characters was excellent and very entertaining. Which brings me to the question about the dvd package itself...where is Stephanie? She was Remenington Steele? I understand that Pierce Brosnan has become very successful, but back then he was unknown. Credit should be given to both actors. Can't wait for the second season to be released. Outstanding series!!!

    Very Entertaining!

    This show is very entertaining. My family is delighted that it is out on DVD. It is funny, mysterious, and the chemistry between the actors is great.
