i have had a lot going on lately. a lot of personal stuff that i just need to process so when it came my turn to pick a show it kind of slipped my mind. a quick aside no matter what you are going through – you can make it. you are stronger than what ever it is. trust me. i have been dealt some real damage, and i am still kicking. anyway.
The Rockford Files ran from 1974-1980 for 119 episodes. It starred James Garner as Jim Rockford an every man private detective. it was a departure from most of the cop/detective shows of the time. Rockford would get beat up, would lose fights, get arrested, and always be involved in general mayhem.
The show used an answering machine (no voice mail in those days) during the opening credits and the message changed from show to show. also of note was the theme song for this show. Mike Post and Pete Carpenter put this one together, as they did for many of the tv shows during the era.
i won’t do this one justice unfortunately in my writing, and i have not watched all of the episodes in years. some are obviously not going to hold up to now because of cell phones and the like.
Try out a few shows and see what you think.
