This Blog is a journey through all 88 episodes of the 80’s TV show Scarecrow and Mrs King. I will be working my way through each episode in their original airing order [mostly! but may deviate from time to time with explanation! 😉 ]
I am walking through the episodes with the aim of not jumping ahead with Lee and Amanda’s story- but focusing on where Lee, Amanda and the story are at in each episode as we go along.
Be sure to subscribe to receive the update posts.
I hope you will join me and share your own thoughts on Lee Stetson, Amanda King… and the world of SMK!

You just never know what SMK fun will come up at Just Walk With Me!!
Edited to add: A fellow smk fan (LeesMolly) published a comment asking for clarification about jumping ahead/not jumping ahead etc. A great question. I’m going to share here my reply as I think it may be helpful.
Firstly – SMK is for FUN!!!!! So no stress here please – if anyone slips up, it’s okay we make mistakes, and we can help each other to not jump ahead and have fun together 🙂
The blog doesn’t go beyond where the walk is up to.. so (for example) if you are in a blog post about Pharoah’s Engineer, you can refer to events in Unfinished Business, as the walk is beyond that episode now. However, if you were going to start in depth discussion of events in Unfinished Business- you’d be better off heading to blog posts covering that episode and having that discussion over there. So just keep that in mind. You can also share in your comment a link to your comment located elsewhere if you want to.
…A little history on JWWM…
This blog is a work in progress, and has evolved over time. I started out with not a clue (lol) and over time, have adjusted things to support the discussion of episodes as the walk continues – as this blog is a little different to say online forums, and it’s main focus is to walk through the episodes.
A major adjustment was the decision to not talk about events in the show beyond where the walk is up to. This adjustment has had it’s upsides and downsides..
I can see how it can be frustrating to not be able to discuss future events when something comes up… [Hopefully once the walk is complete, this will no longer be a frustration.]
Also, it’s tricky to discuss two or more episodes in depth if you want to take a deep dive as commenters. [If something is burning and you really want to do a multi episode deep dive – why not write a blog post about it and I’ll publish it for you?]
I’m thinking not jumping ahead is working overall though – I am trying to write to walk unspoiled – I haven’t watched upcoming episodes in YEARS (on purpose) – I genuinely forget the plot lol. (I’m sure that’s obvious from some of the weird things I say in blog posts haaaa!) It helps me to write episodes with fresh eyes!!
Not jumping ahead helps keep the focus on the episode being walked through. Before this change, episode discussions ended up going way off track – I don’t remember specific instances of this happening now as it was probably a decade ago lol!! but to illustrate: Someone (maybe even me back then lol) would make a comment that they thought X about If thoughts could kill – because in Burn Out Y happens – then someone would be curious about this and say something like ‘Really? that’s interesting! I don’t think Y happened in Burn Out – what do you mean/what’s that based on?’ then, you end up talking about Burnout and not If Thoughts Could Kill.
BTW this explains why there are early posts from me referring to future events and not following today’s rules – the rules changed over time.. so always keep in mind when reading this blog that it’s organic and a living thing! lol.
This blog is not a reference guide to episodes that is unchanging and authoritative. Nope.
My thoughts on the episodes are not fact, they are just my thoughts – and I like to put out there what I think and that can change over the course of one episode as I experience the episode unfolding. That’s what this blog is: the experience of walking through each episode… and through the 88 episodes together
