High Wire Act
18 August 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Taking a break from her office work, Mildred (Doris Roberts) visits "Cordaro's Fabulous Funtime Circus"; there, she participates in a mysterious séance, held by ex-"Dark Shadows" warlock Michael McGuire (as Fresco Zapata). The attempt to contact the otherworldly proves to be too successful, and is abruptly terminated. Next, Remington (Pierce Brosnan) is knocked upside his head, and the Steele office ransacked. Recovering nicely, Remington and Laura (Stephanie Zimbalist) decide to investigate, by going undercover as trapeze artists, at the circus. Mildred gets to join them, as a bearded lady.

At the circus, the trio connect with manager Lisa Pelikan (as Christy Cordaro), who is wheelchair bound due to a supposed circus accident. Suddenly, Remington rescues rugged daytime soap star A Martinez (as Guy Nickerson) from what appears to staged accident. When the investigation leads to an unsolved murder, it becomes an increasingly dangerous assignment for the Remington Steele team. A stated background interest in gymnastics, and some hitherto unknown trapeze experience, helps make the story more believable.
