DVD review: Scarecrow and Mrs. King season two
Once and future “Tron” Bruce Boxleitner was a TV staple in the 1980s, playing charming spy Lee Stetson in “Scarecrow and Mrs. King,” the second season of which is now out on DVD. Stetson, code-named “Scarecrow,” is partnered with suburban housewife Amanda King (Kate Jackson, “Charlie’s Angels”), used by the agency as a civilian asset.
While it’s a little tough to buy the premise, the chemistry of the leads makes the show work. The show, much-requested on DVD, has been coming out at the pace of one season per year.
Season two introduces some globe-trotting locations in the first half, with episodes filmed in London and Munich.
In the season’s first episode, Lee and Amanda travel to London to track down “the Mongoose,” who Lee believes is a former classmate of Amanda’s.
Jean Stapleton is introduced in a recurring role as Lee’s former mentor, British secret agent Lady Emily Farnsworth.
