Top 61 Remington Steele Episode Titles [Click for the rest]
It’s steele our favorite TV wordplay joke.
Must find time to schedule a rewatch. I think Remington Steele was the first tv series I watched as it was released (that is, starting with the first episode of the first season on broadcast TV) that really woke me up as a fan.
The wonderful Stephanie Zimbalist playing a character who realized as a feminist that no matter what she did, the patriarchy was *never* going to think of her as a powerful, useful person. And what did she do? Just about the most fannish possible thing: she invented a male boss who was always too busy with some other case to work on the new client’s problem, so she was assigned to it. SHE INVENTED A FANTASY BOSS TO TRICK PEOPLE INTO HIRING HER.
And then when a guy showed up claiming to be THE FANTASY PERSON SHE INVENTED, it took months and months for her to figure out how to handle that.
