This is every woman's fantasy! Amanda King was newly divorced, looking for work and trying to talk herself in believing that the man she's dating is the one for her.
While taking the weatherman boyfriend to the train station one rainy day, she is swept up litteraly buy a man in a waiter's suit who shoves a package in her hand and tells her to please help him, that it's a matter of life and death. Something in his face makes her say yes and when she sees him attacked just seconds after she takes his package she knows this is more than just a pick up line!
The man turns out to be Scarecrow, an intelligence operative for the Agency, a secret government organization that is responsible for saving the world from the forces of evil, (which in their day were the Russians, East Germans, and other communist countries)
Amanda falls in love with the danger and excitement of the job as well as the dashing Scarecrow, who tries to resist the housewife with a station wagon and a mortage, but just can't seem to get her out of his system.
Through four years they have a lot of adventures, some of them so funny you still remember them even 20 years later. And who can go to Washington DC without visiting the SMK spots?
It was fun watching them fall in love but as is the case once the actual marriage took place, lots of the magic went out of the relationship. The device of keeping the marriage secret was illogical for two sane people and the show fell apart.
