The heart shaped diamond necklace that Kate Jackson wore during most of the run of the series was purchased in 1979 just before she hosted "Saturday Night Live." She wanted something that would sparkle against the black silk blouse she wore that evening. See more »

someday on DVD?
10 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do love this show, for its sheer entertainment value. It's a little idealistic and perhaps stretches credibility at points, but so what? I don't always want to be educated when I watch TV, nor do I particularly like being grossed out verbally or visually, as the newer shows push the envelope ever farther in search of ratings... Kate Jackson and Bruce Boxleitner might not consider SMK their best work, but I think they discount their fan base. I loved Bruce in this, and in Babylon 5, a lot better than any of the drippy made for TV movies he made with his wife (sorry Melissa!) I wish Scarecrow and Mrs King would come out on DVD so I'd have a chance to watch it again. Maybe this time I'll hate it! But I doubt it. April 2005
