While we’re excited to reach this milestone in the #SteeleTweet. Season 2, you guys! There is a downside to progress, however. And that casualty is Murph. Poor Murph has left us. Poor Bernice has left us. But focus on the important part. Murph will forever remain in our hearts. In his stead who will become the Remington Steele whipping boy? Only time will tell.
Season 2 opens with a two-part episode called “Steele Away with Me” and the arrival of Doris Roberts as Mildred Krebs, a former IRS agent who’d been obsessed with tracking down “Remington Steele.”
Will we learn more about Remington’s past? Will Laura and Remington continue their flirtation? Will Laura wear some more amazing hats? You’ll have to tune in to a brand new season of #Bond_age_TV presents REMINGTON STEELE to find out. You’ll also need to keep your classic movie radar finely tuned during these episodes because there are new fewer than five references.

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.

We’re approaching the end of Remington Steele’s first season and as much as we’d like to jump ahead for the first appearance of Doris Roberts in Season 2, we’ve got some unfinished business.
The end of Season 1 ramps up the blossoming on-again/off-again romance between Holt and Steele. The pair begin to ask more probing questions about their respective pasts. This, of course, provides character development for our two leads — but also showcases some of the swagger Steele developed once the showrunners started producing episodes of a successful prime-time network show. And the character development and progress of the long-term relationship between Holt and Steele depicts late-season momentum knowing that there would in fact be more seasons of Remington Steele. Volume 6 of #Bond_age_TV presents Steele Tweet serves up a pair of such episodes in “Steele In the News” and “Vintage Steele.”
In “Steele In the News” our detectives investigate evildoings at a television news program. Logically, you’ll hear references to Foreign Correspondent and Network. The episode itself is perhaps most remarkable for the appearance of Richard Moll (Night Court) as a pimp. It’s a good episode — don’t get me wrong. But Bull plays a pimp, you guys.
Next up, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share “Vintage Steele” — an episode that takes place in and around a winery when a corpse pops up in a vat of wine. Holt and Steele must determine the corpse’s identity in order to find their killer. It just so happens that the dead guy is none other than the Abbott of the St. Costello Monastery. You can probably figure how that reference plays out within the show’s knowing reference to classic Hollywood.
