Although Laura is head of the Remington Steele Agency, her partner, a suave and handsome stranger with a checkered past (played by Pierce Brosnan), has taken on the name of Remington Steele (a man who doesn't exist!) to attract clients who might otherwise balk at hiring a woman for dangerous jobs. Of course, "Remington" plays his role to the hilt, even though he tends to be something of a klutz at times. Plus, our hero is never at a loss for a clever quip -- usually one stolen straight from one of the many vintage Hollywood movies that he has committed to memory. New in the second season is future Everybody Loves Raymond co-star Doris Roberts as the agency's secretary Mildred Krebs. A former IRS agent, Mildred had been fired after generously helping Remington beat a tax evasion rap. Now she is determined to get even with him simply by hanging around and making his life miserable. Missing from the action is Laura's first partner Murphy Michaels, who, after being upstaged by Remington once too often, has quit to form his own agency. The season begins with the two-part "Steele Away With Me," which at one point draws parallels between the story at hand and a typical James Bond movie (several years before Pierce Brosnan took over the role of Bond in the character's theatrical features). Later cases involve a sabotaged aircraft company, a client who doesn't know his own name, a poisoned TV dinner coming between a pair of popular commercial actors, a boxing manager who may or may not know something about Remington's murky past, the solving of a decades-old circus mishap, and a make-believe mystery that becomes all too real. Among the classic movies invoked by Remington in the course of events are Casablanca, Spellbound, Rocky, and The Greatest Show on Earth. Especially worth noting is the episode "Woman of Steele," which co-stars Pierce Brosnan's then wife, the late Cassandra Harris. Hal Erickson, RoviRead Less
