Quotes

Laura Holt: What are you doing?
Remington Steele: I'll tell you what I'm *not* doing! I'm not driving in circles trying to elude people I don't know, who want to kill a nice little nebbish, for reasons I don't even understand. I'm also not about to sit in that car while Sheldon looks at me like I'm Babe Ruth and George Washington all rolled into...

Remington Steele: ... yes, information? I'd like the number of the Central Intelligence Agency... No, that is not a residence.

11 out of 10, it blows away the scale
30 June 2004 | by (BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

Remington Steele was a mixture of mystery, comedy, romance, and so much more. i wasn't born when it originally aired, but i watched the reruns on some obscure television network. it was all magic. the way the show carries itself, the way it goes through each episode. there is always an air of mystery about Steele, which we don't actually find out until the very end. there is also the never ending question that always comes up, no matter how 'bleak the situation,' does he or doesn't he love Laura? Of course we all know, but Holt herself won't admit it. As the episodes and seasons go by, the characters develop even more. All in all, this show really does blow away the scale, and i give it a 11 out of 10. although this show did have some weak moments, what show doesn't? i know I'll be first in line when they release the DVD(if they ever do...).
