Pierce Brosnan Plans His Return to TV, 'Psych' to Tackle Vampires and More

Pierce BrosnanCould a 'Remington Steele 2.0' be in the future? Maybe.

Pierce Brosnan is developing a new series with Sony Pictures TV about "an international operative and problem solver for hire," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sound a little similar to the former thief-turned-private detective?

Though the former James Bond will most likely not play the main character, he will appear in the show. This would be Brosnan's first regular TV role since 'Remington Steele,' which ran from 1982 to 1987.

I never liked Remington Steele and he was the worst James Bond ever and I'm a big James Bond fan from the first movie. He was the worst and I can't see people watching a new series with his arrogant butt in them.

Pierce Brosnan theme for his new show reminds me of the theme for The Equilizer.

It would be nice to have Pierce B. back on TV but what about Stephanie Zimbalist? They could now be the supervisors to younger investigators. They could even trade off appearances, explaining that the other one is on someplace else, so they both wouldn't have to appear as often.

What a wonderful idea! Pierce should play the main role on his new show, he is talented, handsome, and a great actor, I'd watch this show without a doubt.

How nice to see a good guy back on TV. Pierce Brosnan seems like such a good guy and when I see him on talk shows he doesn't brag like most of the others. He sang (not the best voice) on Mama Mia and I loved the fact that he did it and didn't get a double to sing for him. Good luck to him and the success of his part.

I am a little disappointed with Hallmark. Don't they realize that NBC dropped Martha Stewart for a reason?
Her show had become boring. I used to watch her show, but not the last season she was on NBC. She got to where she was almost stuttering searching for words and speaking in that monotone voice. And she doesn't know how to follow directions. I observed several instances where her guest cook would be showing how to make something and explaining the steps and Martha wouldn't do it right. She either didn't listen, or confronted the guest about why it was done that way. That didn't make for a pleasant viewing experience. She strikes me as the type of person that always has to be right. Hallmark, anybody's reruns are better than MS!!

Martha doesn't listen to anyone you see her talk to. She knows everything! She'll start explaining to her guest the way she thinks it ought to be done, and that's that.
However, she did listen to her broker a few years back and made a lovely shaw while in the Joint. And that's a good thing.

Actually, those themed episodes are planned for Psych's next season. But either way, definitely looking forward to them!

"'Psych' is planning three different specially themed episodes this next season. Look for a vampire-themed episode, a musical and a baseball movie tribute in the future"

I believe this is called "Jumping the Shark".

I was going to agree with BTDT- I also feel that doing those "themed" episodes on ANY show is "jumping the shark". Have they run out of fresh ideas? Too bad because this is a really fun show to watch. I hate theme shows. Been there, done that for as long as tv has been around.

Also, totally agree with jolly. Enough with Martha anything!
