Fans of Pierce Brosnan's James Bond—and who isn't?—will be both shaken and stirred to see the actor already so suave and endearing in this screwball mystery series (1982-87). The first season's plots now seem flabby, though the chemistry between Brosnan and soigné Stephanie Zimbalist remains potent and the repartee sparkling. In a couple of making-of featurettes, Brosnan recalls his role and the series fondly, but Zimbalist is MIA.
