Remington Steele – Steele Belted television review

Today’s Throwback Tuesday post takes us back to the 80s detective show Remington Steele. While Laura (Stephanie Zimbalist) ignores the break-in at Steele‘s (Pierce Brosnan) apartment as someone from his nefarious past coming to call, she has a harder time ignoring the attack on her partner (especially after the names of those involved correspond to a current case). The firm’s current client is a recently-paroled ex-con (Andrew Bloch) who Laura believes someone in framing for the theft of valuable gold coins. Although Steele’s initial involvement on the case doesn’t help the client, who gets charged for murder, he does sniff out a suspicious character in the man’s lawyer (Barry Van Dyke) who has turned the head of Ms. Holt.

Nancy Drew #3

Nancy Drew #3 comic reviewChapter 3 of “The Case of the Cold Case” continues following Nancy‘s discovery of a body in the caves around Deadman’s Cliff. Happy to discover the out-of-contact Nancy is alive and unharmed, her friends finally demand some answers allowing writer Kelly Thompson to catch everyone up on why Nancy has returned to Bayport and what mystery Pete needs her help to solve.

The issue offers the classic trope from Nancy Drew, Scooby Doo!, The Three Investigators, and the Hardy Boys stories as the local police seem reluctant to accept the deductive abilities of the teenage girl and quickly dismiss clues that could help them solve the case. It looks like this one is up to Nancy and friends.

Take Two - Shadows of the Past television review

When their new client becomes the latest victim of a serial killer, Sam (Rachel Bilson) and Eddie’s (Eddie Cibrian) case for a missing woman gets more complicated. Over the objections of a cop with grudge (Colin Lawrence), Eddie is allowed limited access to their case. “Shadows of the Past” fills in a few more details of why Eddie’s career as a cop came to an end and grudges on both side that make it hard for him to work with the department. Putting those aside, our plucky detectives find the killer… although the more they dig into the case they more they believe the real killer may still be out there and delivered the LAPD the perfect patsy to close the case prematurely. Solving their original case, and finding the missing woman, leads them to the truth.
