A popular dramedy of the early '80s, REMINGTON STEELE starred a young and dashing Pierce Brosnan before he became 007. Stephanie Zimbalist co-stars as Laura Holt, a beautiful young private eye trying to get her business off the ground. Unfortunately, she finds that female P.I.'s don't receive a lot of business, so she invents a male superior for whom she "works," and renames her business after him. Suddenly cases come pouring in, but Laura soon finds herself confronted by a handsome thief who calls himself Remington Steele; he cons her into a partnership in which she does the work and he "takes the bows." This works well for business purposes, but the two are constantly at odds, creating an exciting sexual tension and much opportunity for humour. This collection of episodes comprises the entire first season, including "Thou Shalt not Steele," where the partners face off over whether or not to provide security for a "cursed" painting; "Steele Trap," which finds the P.I.'s trapped on a tropical island; and "Vintage Steele," where Laura and Remington try to solve the case of a body that keeps turning up and disappearing at a local winery.
