The Rockford Files - Backlash of the Hunter




Actor James Garner died recently and I remembered that I felt warm towards his Rockford Files character from the days when I used to watch television as a child. He was more modest than most detectives and lived on the cheap as I recalled, so I downloaded the first series to see if it's the sort of thing I could relax to without thinking to much.

I watched the first episode from around 1974 last night and it was spectacularly badly written with plot holes wider than a crack hookers spread, and characters that would do well in the yearly pantomime at the Southampton Gaumont. 

But still, it was kind of enjoying to watch and the guest star of this first episode is Lindsay Wagner, a stunning American babe from that period in the 70's when things were a lot less complicated than they are today and women were a lot slimmer. 

She now does new age spiritual retreats which I think is the perfect way for a beautiful lady to age gracefully and make a contribution. 

There's lots of episodes up on Youtube. 

Share the love.
