Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.
This Week: Remington Steele‘s “Blood Is Thicker Than Steele”
Tread Perilously adds Remington Steele to its rotation with an episode they had to call “Blood Is Thicker Than Steele.”
Laura Holt and Remington Steele are hired to protect the children of a rich ex-patriot whose dubious dealings with the Greykirk Corporation make him a star witness in a federal case against the company. Pretending to be tour guides, they try their best to escort the kids to meet him at the Phoenix courthouse, but with the older son hot for Laura and Remington Steele going to war with the younger daughter, their 48-hour trip becomes a trial all its own.
