We love watching tv shows from the 80s on DVD! I found a new favorite one to watch in our house and it’s called “Scarecrow and Mrs. King: The Complete First Season.” I love this show! It’s funny and full of action – a winning combination to watch.   The show stars Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5) and Kate Jackson (Charlie’s Angels) as Scarecrow and Mrs. King.  Amanda King is a single mom living in the suburbs of Washington DC until one day, she runs into a handsome stranger, agent Lee Stetson (aka Scarecrow) who shoves a package into her hands, giving her instructions to give it to the man in the red hat.  Little did she know that she would be dodging bullets and helping to unfoil assassination plots.  She also doesn’t expect to be drawn to this handsome stranger and helping him to solve cases left and right.  I think it’s a winning tv show on DVD to watch and look forward to more seasons to come!

“Scarecrow and Mrs King: The Complete First Season” was released today, March 9th 2010 by Warner Home Video.  The DVD features all 21 episodes from the show’s debut season in a five-disc Collector’s Set.  The set retails for $39.98.  This Emmy Award-winning popular action series first aired in 1983 on CBS and lasted for four successful seasons! 

“Fans have been asking for Scarecrow & Mrs. King to be released on DVD for several years,” said Rosemary Markson, WHV Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. “We are delighted to finally bring this wonderful series to consumers. Kate Jackson and Bruce Boxleitner as Amanda and Lee are one of television’s most charming and memorable couples, and we know fans will be thrilled to own this complete season one release.”

    lol You know, I love these old shows but am just way too embarrassed usually to watch them. They just look SO DATED. lol I just can’t believe I wanted to actually sport the huge feathered bangs at one time.

    This was one of my favorite shows. I always watched every show. I even remember a lot of them. lol

  4. I LOVED this show when it was on… I would love to get it on DVD and watch it again. I had such a huge crush on Bruce Boxleitner and Kate Jackson was always my favorite “Angel.” I didn’t know this was coming out on DVD… I’ll have to ask Santa for this for Christmas.
    Thanks for the review.
