Scarecrow is coming!

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit how excited I am that Scarecrow and Mrs. King is finally coming to DVD. I've been waiting for this one, perhaps my favorite series of the 80s, for years. Granted, Masterpiece Theatre it ain't, but everything about this series, starring Kate Jackson and Bruce Boxleitner, is adorable, and a little escapism is good for the soul. In one episode, Mom Dotty (Beverly Garland) tells housewife-turned-spy Amanda that her poppyseed cake is her Sistine Chapel. Well, Scarecrow is the Sistine Chapel of escapist 80s TV fare.

It's scheduled for release on March 9, and is available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
