Summary of Season 1 (1983) - 5 discs

Domestic matters make way for foreign affairs when suburban mom Amanda King (Kate Jackson) collides with secret agent Lee "Scarecrow" Stetson (Bruce Boxleitner) at a train station and is handed a mystery package, thus tumbling into a double life of after-school espionage. Scarecrow embroils the improbable Mrs. King in all manner of covert ops, while Amanda is amusingly hard-pressed to keep her curious family in the dark in this '80s spy series.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's some low-level physical violence (including punching and kicking), but no blood, along with explosions and use of firearms that result in occasional deaths. There's also light romantic tension between the two main characters that eventually results in some onscreen kissing. You'll see social drinking, too, but it's mostly in the background. The female character is often put into stereotypical roles.
