Director Chris Columbus is a big James Bond fan, and he was crushed when Pierce Brosnan didn't get cast when he was offered the part during the making of this show, but they wouldn't release him from his contract. Columbus thought Brosnan a phenomenal actor. When they worked together on Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), Columbus told Brosnan he'd make a great James Bond, but Brosnan thought that ship had sailed. In 1995, MGM called Columbus telling him they're looking for the next James Bond, and Brosnan was one of the choices, so Columbus recommended him; his little contribution to the James Bond saga.

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...).
