After Remington Steele ended, Pierce Brosnan made some big miniseries and a couple of very good movies for television. In the two that I've seen, he plays a college professor - he's a woman's perfect fantasy of one for sure, plus his accent makes him sound erudite.
In this movie, "Murder 101," he's Professor Charles Lattimore, teaching students to write a murder story while he tries to reconcile with his ex-wife, who caught him cheating with one of his students. When a beautiful member of his current class is murdered, Lattimore finds himself a prime suspect. He has to find out who's framing him - and there is more than one possibility and more than one murder to complicate the situation.
"Murder 101" has a few twists in it and makes for an above-average experience. If you like it, try to see the TV movie where Brosnan plays an English professor, "Victim of Love," which costars JoBeth Williams and Virginia Madsen. Both films make for good suspense and good viewing.
