Product Description

Scarecrow & Mrs. King: The Complete First Season

Amazon.ca

Scarecrow and Mrs. King proves there was life for Kate Jackson after Charlie's Angels--and for Bruce Boxleitner before Babylon 5. Jackson's divorcée, Amanda King, a pretty lady with an '80s perm, lives outside D.C. with her sons, Jamie and Phillip. At a train station, she meets Boxleitner's Lee "Scarecrow" Stetson, who convinces her to do a "life or death" favor. The delivery to the man in the red hat doesn't go as planned, but King ends up cracking the case and a new team ensues. Scarecrow's boss, Billy (Mel Stewart), thinks a housewife will make a perfect decoy, though fellow agent Francine (Martha Smith) has her doubts. As she says about her colleague, "His methods might be unorthodox, but Scarecrow always delivers." Unfortunately for the apprentice agent, she can't tell anyone about her new career, not even her mother, Dotty (Beverly Garland, great value), who looks after the boys when she takes on assignments, offering different excuses every time. In Scarecrow, however, Amanda finds a friend as well as a partner--and a possible love interest, to judge from their longing glances.

If Scarecrow and Mrs. King bears comparison with Remington Steele, the cases that deal with the domestic arena help to set it apart, with perpetrators ranging from cooking-show hosts to cosmetics titans. The more dramatic episodes don't work as well, mostly because they feel like retreads from The Rockford Files (executive producer Juanita Bartlett has written for both programs). Also, Jackson is a deft comic actress, but her crying scenes don't quite convince. Still, it's a minor complaint about a light entertainment that wasn't aiming for documentary realism. Plus, it's the chemistry between the leads that led to three more seasons--and Boxleitner's GQ good looks certainly didn't hurt. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I absolutely loved this show when it was on the air and I still love it to this day. I thought I'd die before they put it out on Dvd - really what was the problem??? Anyway finally got it on dvd thankfully and it is just a joy to watch again. Granted it was a different time - 1980's spies and political scene was a bit different but it still holds up as a well done show. An intelligent capable housewife getting into spy business and mixing with real agents and bad guys. As we learn she can hold her own in most situations just using common sense and natural intuition. The show is funny, dramatic and enjoyable. If you want strict realism and dark drama look elsewhere this show is a great one and is worth purchasing. It is a family show and alot better than most out there now. Truly enjoyable to watch.Looking forward to season 2 on dvd!!

The two biggest questions I had before purchasing this was "would it be as good as I remembered it" and "has it dated"? It's been twenty seven years since it was first released and I have to say that "yes, it's just as good as I remember it" and "surprisingly little". The chemistry between Bruce Boxleitner and Kate Jackson is brilliant - and that sort of thing just doesn't date.

The show holds up well, video quality is very good but for some reason the audio is ridiculously low. I have to crank the volume on the TV to full but still the sound level is much too low. Routing the sound through my home theater does help somewhat but I still need to turn up the volume excessively to hear the dialogue properly. Other DVD's in my collection are fine so I can only assume this particular set has very low sound volume. Not sure why? Anyone else have this sound level trouble?

Love this show - it is still fun to watch and I was thrilled to get it on dvd. I hope they release the later seasons too as I'd love to buy them - now if I could. This show was made in 1980s seems a long time to wait but I'm happy to now own my season 1 dvd . Season 2 soon please...

Originally I was just going to get one season of this series to see if I remembered it from TV days, but then I got hooked on it and bought three Seasons. I will get the last one when the price comes down a bit. Kate Jackson is so good and natural in this show, Bruce Boxlettner is a bit stiff but very handsome. Beverly Garland is excellent even in her small part as mother.
