Favorite Guest Star: Jean Stapleton. Wish we had seen more of her in the series. I just loved her character. She was brilliant as Lady Emily Farnsforth and had great comic timing. I would have loved to have learned more about her taking Lee under her wings when he was a rookie. Oh, the stories I am sure she could have told. ~ The Legend of Das Geisterschloss and The Three Faces of Emily
Favorite Baddie: Addi Birol (Wortham Kimmer). He was perfect as a Saudi terrorist who kidnaps and tortures Amanda to get information from Lee. Creepy, slimy, and played very convincingly. ~ Night Crawler
Honorable Mention Baddie: Curt Hollander (Walter Gotell). Such a great baddie, cool as a cucumber under pressure. Just pure evil. He was also fantastic as the baddie in some of the James Bond films ~ Service Above and Beyond
Character Who I Would Have Liked To Have Seen More: Leatherneck (Billy Ray Sharkey). The Agency's Quartermaster, Motor Pool, and Christmas Decorator ~ Over the Limit, The Eyes Have It, Wrong Way Home, All the World's a Stage, and Santa's Got a Brand New Bag
Honorable Mention Character Who I Would Have Liked To Have Seen More: Augie Swann (Louis Welch). Lee Stetson's very likable snitch. . . I mean information broker. ~ Double Agent, Murder Between Friends, and DOA: Delirious On Arrival
Favorite Brushes With Royalty: Princess Penny aka Princess Penelope Celana Charisse Khan (Jane Kaczmarek). I loved the genuine friendship Amanda develops with the Princess. Too bad we did not see her in other episodes. I would have loved to have seen the expression on her face when Amanda told her she married Lee. ~ Always Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth
Honorable Mention Favorite Brushes With Royalty: Princess Sophia Valosky (Hildegard Knef). Who other then Amanda would bring meatloaf and a poppyseed cake to a princess? ~ Waiting for Godorsky
Favorite Not Too Bright Character: Zinoviev (Lee Bergere) who mistakes Amanda as the Scarecrow. What a ruthless sweetie. "You should learn from her, my boy. She's the best." ~ Saved By the Bells
Favorite Comic Performance: Kate Jackson in DOA: Delirious On Arrival. Her delivery of the lines "Why is this thing not loaded?" and "Why didn't you tell your mother you were spies?" and "Lee, you missed the cartwheel" are just classic SMK.
Favorite Supporting Character. This was hard to choose, since I believe "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" had a fantastic ensemble cast; however, Beverly Garland as Amanda's mother, Dotty West edged out the competition in this category. Kate Jackson and Beverly had great chemistry together and I loved Beverly's comic timing, as well as her ability to be caring and sensitive when the scenes required her to be. "Calms again, Dear?"
"Hey. . . it's me."
I live in the shadows of the Olympic Mountains, in the State of Washington and I love camping, boating, hiking, and hanging out with my husband, our three boys, and two Bernese Mountain dogs.
