Originally, the character of Remington Steele was supposed to be a figurehead, comic relief to be used in support of star Stephanie Zimbalist. Bronsnan became so popular that his part became more significant. See more »

Detective shows with male/female partners were big in the 1980s ("Scarecrow & Mrs. King," "Moonlighting," "Hart to Hart," etc.), and of all of them, "Remington Steele" was the absolute best. I was totally hooked on this show in high school, and for good reason! Stephanie Zimbalist and Pierce Brosnan are both not only terrific actors, but they had the best on screen chemistry ever. The premise of the show was clever, the writing was intelligent and the characters were real. An episode could bring you to tears ("Red Holt Steele") or keep you laughing throughout ("Steele in the Chips"). Above all were the romantic episodes ("Steele Away With Me," "Steele At It," "Love Among the Steele," etc.), where the writers would keep the audience guessing -- will they or won't they *finally* get together? Oh, and Doris Roberts was great as Mildred Krebs, even when she was FOREVER interrupting Steele and Miss Holt at the most inopportune times. I'm totally thrilled that this series is finally coming out on DVD. I'll even buy the Fifth Season, even though it was totally disappointing, as I *have* to have the complete set! I highly recommend this show to everyone.
