A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
A housewife, Mrs. King, is handed a package by a secret agent who is being pursued by bad guys. The secret agent, Lee Stetson, then has to track down the housewife before the bad guys do. Later episodes involve similar plots as Stetson and Mrs. King are teamed up together.Written by

I'm going to take a look at his apartment.
You grab a cab. Get on back to the Agency. You take my computer key card and start tracking down who owns this building. Leases, parent companies...
You know this is what always happens. I always have to go back to the agency.
We have to divide the workload Amanda.
I agree with you let's divide the workload. You follow the paper trail and I'll follow Zorbel.
Do you think you can break into Zorbel's place?
Call me a cab.

I didn't get into this show until a few seasons went by. But once I did get into the show, I found that I really liked the characters portray by Bruce Boxleitner (Lee Stetson aka Scarecrown) and Kate Jackson (Mrs. King). Scarecrow was a suave American spy -- an American James Bond and Mrs. King, a divorced housewife who ended up becoming his partner with the perfect cover....a suburban divorced mom.
Mrs. King wasn't your gorgeous Bond girl....she was more of a pretty all-American girl next door/mom. There was something about her sly intelligence mixed with the slightly husky voice that I always found very appealing. With these two very attractive early 30 something actors playing off of each other, I always thought there was a sexual/romantic tension that radiated off the screen. I was very happy when the two characters got married and became a husband and wife team.
The plot lines were a bit beyond belief, but the way the two leads played off of each other made it fun to tune in.
