Product Description

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play. 

Jim Rockford (James Garner), one of the most laid-back PI's in TV history, is back with The Rockford Files: Season 5.

Rockford is the kind of guy who'd rather avoid the fight and go fishing instead. An ex-con pardoned for an armed robbery he didn't commit, Jim usually finds that the cases he takes on turn out to be must more serious than he first thought...

5.0 out of 5 stars 30 years past and still the master 30 Nov 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Whilst you tire of some detectives by the end of series 2 Rockford just seemed to get better as time went on. Series 5 has more excellent stories and plots; so unbelievable they could just be true. It's just a pity the great and underrated James Garner had but a few more episodes to go after this series. The acting as always is excellent and despite the lack of Beth Davenport to bail him out of his problems with the law, the remaining regular cast members support Garner very well indeed. The series seems to leave no body untouched with its merciless ribbing of CIA/FBI/POLICE whilst also outlining the main characters flaws perhaps something that undermined the series overall success, Americans tend to favour the winners and Rockford tends to solve the case but somehow lose out, perfectly depicted in one of the best episodes here White on White and Nearly Perfect with Tom Selleck providing great support as Lance White. Some great deals on these box sets and something you can dig out at least once a year and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 23 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just love James Garner...he plays Rockford with ease, wit, intelligence and humour. The plots are easy to follow and funny. Yes there may be some repetition in tales of morality, i.e good versus evil, but they are enjoyable and watchable tales. It wiil take you back to the 70s....the clothes, the cars, the gentle action and the dodgy language. Enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rockford Files - excellent series 29 Dec 2010
For any fans of the Rockford Files this is excellent viewing. Still as good as when it was originally made. Jim Rockford gets into all kinds of situations and always manages to get himself out!!

3.0 out of 5 stars ROCKFORD FILES SEASON 5 9 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been watching the series from the beginning and find that the newer seasons are not as interesting as the older ones. I think the writers where running out of ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rockford Files series 5 8 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had already bought series 1 to 4 at an average price of 8 each, series 5,6 and 7 were too expensive at around 22 each so I waited and as soon as I saw series 5 at 8 I bought it. This is an excellent buy at that price, I am waiting now for series 6 and 7 to come down to around the 8 mark and I will buy those too. Must be one of the best Detective Series ever on TV, even if it is 1970's/80's.
