i forgot to see the Cherokee blood in him; however, reminded of the fact, i certainly can. This season as Rockford, finds him giving as good as he gets, physically (he always did, mentally). The best episode in this box is the one about the spiritual follower who enlists Jim's help because the bad guys are after her for some intercepted money (25, 000 ). They see her with him, and he becomes a target, as a result of that bad-guy vision. A rare episode where the female lead is not at all sexy, although she does peck his cheek a few times, perfunctorily so. The coda, is heartbreaking, as jim tries to lure her away from her new cult-job, with the offer of a coffee, and a danish, ' on me.' She bites her lip, and sticks with her task of handing out brochures for the (now) christian cult she has been latched onto, by. The look on the last shot is of the sadness in Rockford's eyes. He hadn't even aimed to try to rescue her, but things turned out that way. Such is the realism of this wonderful tv series, ranked as #3 on the all-time list of law and order/p.i. series. Included is the episode Tom Selleck filmed to try out for the idea that became the MAGNUM series.

R.I.P., James Garner (Jimbo Rockford). The only fictional thing I can stand to watch. I love it.

Lots of outdoor shots of Jim driving his car in sunny LA. That was almost 40 years ago! It's kinda nice to look back and see what a gorgeous place it was, and why everyone wanted to move to LA then.

James "Jimbo" Rockford investigates all manner of evil. He has a smart mouth and fists to match. No one gets over on Jimmy. You will love it! :)

Jim Rockford, an ex-con pardoned for an armed robbery he didn't commit, is a private investigator specializing in closed cases. His office is his oversized trailer next to the Malibu pier. His pricey fee of $200 a day plus expenses makes it hard for him to attract clients, but he is well worth it. He is sometimes assisted by his father Joseph (a.k.a. Rocky), his best friend Sgt. Dennis Becker of the LAPD, his lawyer/girlfriend Beth Davenport, and his former cell-mate Evelyn "Angel" Martin.
