5.0 out of 5 stars Sophisticated Fun 12 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Unless Gary Cole's "Midnight Caller" series is ever released on VHS or DVD this is the only television I'll be reviewing. I have this episode but they are all good and since several are fortunately still available here on Amazon.com I would like to use this as a review for all of the series.
This was a truly stylish television show that tapped into the kind of Stanley Donan light mystery romance that was then, and still is, missing from the movies. Pierce Brosnan and Stephanie Zimbalist were perfectly cast and the show only got better with each season. The Henry Mancini theme music captured the feel of this light and sophisticated show tinged with humor perfectly. It was as evocative and as much a part of the show as his "Peter Gunn" theme had been decades before.
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 nonexistant Steele, both around town, and with clients. An uneasy alliance was formed that 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 constant references were made to films of the 30's and 40's he would recall pertaining to the case they were working on.
This series was fun and sophisticated entertainment that always made you feel good, light entertainment at it's best. It would be nice to see this translated to the big screen someday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Steele is my favorite episode 6 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Vintage Steele is a great episode, it is nice to see Laura having a secret or two of her own. The episode deals with her former live-in,Wilson, who after finding a dead body at a winery his bank is sponsoring, goes to Laura for help. You get to see another side of Laura , a " wild side ", that you normally do not get to see..she does a strip tease down to her teddy ! All in all a very enjoyable episode. Sting of Steele is 2nd on my list of favorites. Stephanie's dad Efrem , guest stars as Daniel Charmers , Remington's former mentor and friend. Beverly Garland ( from My Three Sons )guest stars as Laura's mother , Abigail Holt, the interaction between Laura and her mother is great. Daniel seeks Remington's help after a scam goes wrong and Daniel enlists Abigail's help as well as showing a little romantic interest and Laura does not approve !

3.0 out of 5 stars Steele searches for gold and helps an amnesiac 20 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
These are not some of the best episodes of the series. However, they belong to the first and second seasons respectively, which saw some of the best Remy moments. In 'Steele's Gold', Laura and Mr.Steele are involved in a search for gold, old Indian ancestors and a murderer. They once again spend a night together(romantic moment included), but that's all. Not many filmic references can be found, which can be regarded as negative(bad luck movie buffs)or positive, it is not such a pastiche as others, it all depends on the way you look at it and your personal taste.'Altared Steele', on the contrary, is a kind of pastiche of Hitchcock's 'Spellbound' and the story of a black widow, together with a poligamous husband. As I said, it's fine but not the best. Only recommended for Remy fans. If you are simply curious, I may recommend rather 'License to Steele', 'Thou Shalt not Steele', 'Tempered Steele', or'Vintage Steele'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laura and Remington at their best ! 19 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This video is an absolute "must" for all Remington-Steele-fans.Laura and Remington are giving their best in perfectly structured dialogues and especially in these two episodes the tension created is unbelievable."Tempered Steele" might be the better one,as the plot goes more in to depth,but however,the quality of both of them is equal.If you love Steele,you need to have these episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The premier "Remington Steele" episode! 16 Feb 2002
By Priscilla Stafford - Published on Amazon.com
"Try this for a deep dark secret. There great detective Remington Steele, he doesn't exist! I invented him. Follow. I always loved excitement so I studied, and apprenticed, and put my name on an office. But absolutely nobody knocked down on my door. A female private investigator seemed so... feminine. So I invented a superior. A decidedly masculine superior. Suddenly there were cases around the block! It was working like a charm. Until the day he walked in. With his blue eyes and mysterious past. And before I knew it, he assumed Remington Steele's identity. Now I do the work and he takes the bows. It's a dangerous way to live, but as long as people buy it, I can get the job done. We never mix business with pleasure. Well... almost never. I don't even know his real name!"
-Laura Holt (Stephanie Zimbalist)-
This is how some of the episodes began, with this introduction by 'Remington Steele's' assistant, Laura Holt (Stephanie Zimbalist). Now you know the whole story behind Remington Steele. The Remington Steele series were about the cases Remington Steele (Pierce Brosnan) and his associate Laura Holt (Stephanie Zimbalist) cracked many difficult and complicated cases. Also starring were James Read as Murphy Michaels as their co-worker (only in the first season), Janet DeMay as Bernice Foxe their secretary (only for the first season), and Doris Roberts as Mildred Krebs (for the rest of the seasons). Showing occasionally was also Stephanie Zimbalist's father, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as Daniel Chalmers, an old friend of 'Remington Steele'.
Anyway, this episode is the premier episode which explains almost everything about how Pierce Brosnan got to be Remington Steele. When Laura Holt is hired to proved security to some gems, she meets a mysterious Ben Pierson. But she gets the surprise of her life when Ben Pierson is not only not the real Ben Pierson, he has assumed the role of Remington Steele! Does he know her secret, that her superior Remington Steele doesn't exist? And who is he really? Could he actually be a murderer and a thief? * Great episode, and I just loved the banter and chemistry between Pierce Brosnan and Stephanie Zimbalist. And you've go to admit, Pierce Brosnan is a great suave and sophisticated Steele!

4.0 out of 5 stars Conflict at it's finest! 16 Dec 1999
By Jeffrey L Gillespie - Published on Amazon.com
Steele's Gold has it all.... intrigue, plot twists, verbal conflict between Steele and Murphy, Steele and Laura, Laura and Murphy... Top this all off with an unexpected ending and you have one of the most fun filled Remington Steele episodes ever made. The episode contains a masquerade party, a search for gold, and of course murder attempts around every bend. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of one of the greatest detective series 12 Sep 2000
By E. A Solinas - Published on Amazon.com
The first of the Remington Steele series!
Laura Holt is an able, intelligent detective, but sexism spills over when her agency is neglected because she is a woman. So, she invents a fictional superior named "Remington Steele," a man who no one ever sees.
Her business bustles until a man comes into her life, calling himself Remington Steele--the problem is, she doesn't know where he comes from, who he is, or what his real name is. "Steele" is handsome, sophistocated, worldly, debonair, and apparently gleans all of his life knowledge from an encyclopedic memory of old movies. But he also guards his secret past like gold.
Laura has no choice but to keep the man as a sidekick, despite the fact that he is hailed as a genius when she does all the work. Adding to the oddity of the situation is the fact that she is fast falling in love with him.
Stephanie Zimbalist and Pierce Brosnan reportedly didn't like each other, but they project a sizzling screen chemistry.
Brosnan manages to give a difficult character depth and an intriguing mystery, exuding precisely the cultured warmth that is needed. But Steele is clearly a very emotional man as well, whom Laura has a good influence on.
Zimbalist creates a very feminine career woman, a great role model. Laura is no Bond-babe. She is very pretty (not the standard Hollywood "pretty"--a natural prettiness) but is independent and strong-minded. You can sense her unhappiness when she is discounted as being a female private investigator.
First part of a really enjoyable series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sets up the premise for the entire series. 28 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
One of the best TV detective series of the '80's or 90's, Remington and Laura are great together, great plots, thrilling mysteries and sexual tension. These two were a class act.
