Scarecrow and Mrs. King:
The Complete Second Season
Review by Suzanne 4/1/10
I loved this show! I was in college at the time and really
enjoyed it. Of course, having handsome Bruce Boxleitner as the star didn't hurt.
There were two other similar shows on the air at the same time: Remington Steele
and Moonlighting. I watched all three! They all had a couple that worked
together to catch bad guys, but they also were falling in love (and trying to
deny it) at the same time. Eventually all three couples did get married, and
their shows ended after some great seasons filled with action, romance and
adventure. Actually, Hart to Hart was another similar show, but they were
already married, so they didn't have that "will they or won't they" component
that these did.
I would say that "Scarecrow" was more mysterious than
Moonlightin and funnier than Remington Steele. In some ways, it was probably
less critically acclaimed and more predestrian than the other two shows, which
took more chances and had slightly better writing. But the shows were still very
enjoyable, and no less so than in this second season. More characters were
introduced, and the duo grew closer. I can't wait for seasons three and
four to come out on DVD, too!
The show is very family-friendly and anyone should enjoy it.
Even though it is an 80's show, it is not very dated. It is a fun, All-American
spy show with romance, humor, and plenty of action. I remember I was pretty
disappointed when they canceled the show.
It does not have any extras or features, which is too bad, since
the stars are still alive and kicking! It would have been nice to hear what they
have to say. The quality of the sound and video is very good, and they do
provide a nice little booklet with all of the episodes and their short
