REVIEWER: lyall carter
The cases of a female private detective partnered with a former thief who assumes the role of a fictitious detective in the business.
Pierce Brosnan was the first Bond I ever encountered in Tomorrow Never Dies. One of the reasons he got the role: Remington Steele.
Laura Holt gets no respect as a private investigator, so she makes up a fictitious boss named Remington Steele - and business starts flowing in. The only problem is a dashing and mysterious thief who assumes the Remington Steele identity and who, surprisingly, is really good as a P.I. - especially when paired with Holt.
Remington Steele was made in the 80’s and it feels like it. The pace of the episodes are slower than most modern TV shows but that’s not to say that Remington Steele isn’t entertaining. It is - with twisting plots and interesting guest characters.
But the heart of the series is the relationship between Holt and Steele - flirty, humorous and filled with heart.
Although showing its age a little, Remington Steele is still as entertaining as ever.
