Let’s take a moment to review how far we’ve come.
There. You good? Have you reflected appropriately? Let’s continue. Some time last year we began the Remington Steele live tweets just to see how they’d go. They turned out to be some of the most fun and festive #Bond_age_TV events this side of Napoleon Solo’s snazzy loafers. So we continued and now we’ve arrived at the end of the first season of Remington Steele.
Altogether now: Awwwwwwwww.
Never fear, #SteeleTweet fans, Remington Steele returns for Season 2! Hopefully NBC will keep this character around for many years to come.
Pam has decided on our final two Season 1 episodes. Drumroll, please. Or maybe not since it’s a little anticlimactic to announce that we’re just live tweeting the last two episodes of the season.
In “Sting of Steele,” Remington Steele’s old mentor pops back into town to seek help dealing with a vindictive hood and attempts to woo Laura’s mother all in one swoop. Beverly Garland, of course, reprises her role as Laura’s mother. Any episodes with Laura’s family are must-see-TV.
In the season finale, “Steele in Circulation,” Steele prevents a man named Alfred from jumping off a bridge. It turns out the would-be jumper had “borrowed” $2.3million in currency that was slated to be shredded from the Federal Reserve to help a “friend.” The “friend” disappears. Laura and Remington attempt to find the money before the bank notices the missing loot. Familiar character actor John Doolittle (Robocop 2) plays Alfred. Prepare for a long list of classic film references. Spot all of them to win unlimited fame and Internet fortune. Maybe just a #Bond_age_ Brosrunning button. You decide.
Join us Wednesday, April 12th @ 9pm ET for #SteeleTweet Vol. 7. Embeds for the episodes will be provided. Follow along on the #Bond_age_TV hashtag, supplement with #SteeleTweet to let all the squares know what we’re doing.
