Rockford Files, The Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 Never boned, but I think his Firebird had to be a "same character / different actor" deal. That car would literally be exploded by a bomb one week, and he would be back driving it the next! Now THAT'S cartoonish, but it was the 70s....everyone was doing it. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:22 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 As long as I commented on "The Real World" earlier, I might as well say this now.....I think I'm in love with Beth Davenport. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Always loved the theme song to this show. I was a child (and a Hotwheels collecting fool) when this show was in it's Prime-Time heyday and to this day, every time I hear the opening theme to The Rockford Files, for some reason I get this crazy association with one of my all-time favorite Hotwheels cars: 'Funny Money' a purple hot rod version of an armored car with stylized orange and green flames down the sides. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 5, 2012, 1:16 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Jimmy, Jimbo, the world's most coolest detective show! If only "McGiver" or some other detective show could reach this peak! Jimbo, you are the Man! -- Submitted By: (smaxie) on May 21, 2010, 2:50 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I liked The Rockford Files when it was on prime-time TV, and I still watch reruns. The only thing that really bugged me was that after the first few times he gets beat up you would think Jim might think twice about answering his door without looking first. -- Submitted By: (Rvbuilder) on October 27, 2009, 1:20 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I liked how Jim was a persistant detective in finding out the info (and it was fun to imagine what his reactions would be upon hearing his callers' messages on his then-cutting edge answering machine). Even though James Garner himself produced this, he wasn't afraid to let Jim be somewhat flawed. Occasionally, Jim would do underhanded stuff that would backfire on him- yet he remained a genuinely likable character! Before I forget, I like how Jim treated his elderly father Rocky- not as a nuisance,nor as someone with whom he a zillion unresolved issues but as an actual friend. The updated movie they did about 20 years after the last show was almost entirely forgettable but it was cool that Jim actually was STILL upset over Rocky's death despite being on the verge of old age himself (and they paid tribute to performer Noah Beery, Jr.). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2009, 3:45 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I have watched every episode. Not one is poorly done. Money is the cause of the death of this entertaining series. I expect the government to suppress shows of that era on grounds they subvert the morals of the young. Until then, watch and enjoy. -- Submitted By: (johbru) on June 14, 2009, 8:41 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
