Amazon.com has announced The Rockford Files Season Three DVD collection will be shipping February 27, 2007 for a price of $27.99.
Series about an ex-con-turned-private-investigator named Jim Rockford who would rather run away than fight and would rather go fishing than work. He isn’t a coward, and he isn’t lazy–just a bit on the cautious side, that’s all. And he bears a very strong resemblance to Western TV hero Bret Maverick. Rockford is sometimes aided (and sometimes deterred) in his cases by friends Dennis Becker (a police detective), Angel (his cowardly former cellmate) and pretty Beth Davenport (his lawyer).
I can’t wait for this collection to arrive at my door. I will probably have to cancel class that day so I can get my fill of 1970s detective television.
