Judge David Johnson sleeps well at night, knowing these two crack secret agents are on the job.
Our reviews of Scarecrow And Mrs. King: The Complete First Season (published March 28th, 2010), Scarecrow And Mrs. King: The Complete Second Season (published April 20th, 2011), and Scarecrow and Mrs. King: The Final Season (published January 22nd, 2013) are also available.
Will they or won't they?
Who's watching our borders? Protecting our secrets? Keeping the predators at bay? These two people. Yep, we're screwed.
Who is Lee "Scarecrow" Stetson (Bruce Boxleitner)?
Who is Amanda King (Kate Jackson)?
The hook of the show is that these two are charged with taking down some of the toughest challenges facing United States security. And while there are some light moments, Scarecrow and Mrs. King is not a comedy, which—with this plot conveyance—is mind-boggling. I love the '80s!
Of course, the real question is: When are these two going to start making out? Well, fans, I won't get too spoilery, but rest assured, by the end of this third season you are going to see some significant traction in the more-than-friends relationship.
Until then, you'll have to stomach 22 episodes worth of ham-fisted international intrigue, an ever-present threat of Soviet spies breaching Mrs. King's kitchen, and a diabolical fast food industryâ€¦ which means our heroes must go into deep cover as burger-flippers. I can't wait for Season Four when Lee and Amanda infiltrate a discarded refrigerator.
A basic DVD release from Warner Home Video: standard definition full frame that is serviceable but looks dated, Dolby 2.0 stereo, and no extras.
Even when Scarecrow and Mrs. King isn't hopelessly antiquated, it's moronic. Still, I have a sweet spot for nostalgic incoherence.
