The final season of the Rockford Files arrived on DVD today.  I’m pretty jazzed, as I now know how I will spend my weekend.

My plans for the weekend

  1. Watch Rockford
  2. Eat grilled cheese sandwich
  3. Watch Rockford
  4. Watch Rockford

Here’s what Amazon has to say about the final season.

Private eye Jim Rockford (James Garner) begins his final year–not counting eight TV movies–by trying to hang on to his beachfront property (“Paradise Cove”). That matter settled with the aid of legal eagle Mariette Hartley, with whom Garner made a series of Polaroid commercials, Rockford proceeds to tangle with socialite Lauren Bacall (“Lions, Tigers, Monkeys and Dogs”), rival P.I. Tom Selleck (“Nice Guys Finish Dead”), and hooker-turned-hairdresser Rita Moreno (“No Fault Affair”). All his closest companions are along for the semi-final ride: Angel (Stuart Margolin), Lt. Becker (Joe Santos), and his father, Joseph (Noah Beery Jr.), who continues to needle his son about settling down. “When I’m ready, Rocky–not when you are,” Jim replies.



Guess what came in the mail today?

I received the Rockford Files Season 5 in the mail today. What makes this season extra special is that if features Tom Selleck as the Lucky Detective. No matter what happens, he always comes out on top, much to the chagrin of Jim Rockford.

Rockford Files DVD Season 5

Rockford Files is the best TV Show of all time

The Rockford Files is the best television show of all time.  It started in the mid to late 70s and for the next eight seasons followed the adventures of L.A. Private Eye James Rockford as he stumbled his way from one problem to the next.

Along the way he hooked up with many memorable characters including his father (also James), Angel Martin, Gandy (played by Isaac Hayes), and more.
