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. This kind of entertaining film is missing from today's teen driven box office. Come to think of it, it is missing from the 'reality' driven television of today as well.
This was something really special in television. Every one of the episodes was enjoyable so you might as well start here and pick up the rest as you go. It is refreshing, a reminder of what television could, and should be....
