Product Description

Product Description

James Garner is back once again in Season 2 of The Rockford Files, playing the role of Jim Rockford, a private investigator, who gets caught up in situations he’d rather not be in. An ex-con pardoned for a crime he didn’t commit, Jim is occasionally aided by his Father (aka Rocky), but would rather run away from a fight and spend time fishing than be involved in anything over his head!

From Amazon.co.uk

The second Rockford Files set begins at the beginning. That's because the double-length pilot ("Backlash of the Hunter") appears as an extra. In this episode, Jim Rockford (James Garner) explains to guest star Lindsay Wagner, "I only handle criminal cases that are closed." The first Rockford file also introduces his errant father, Rocky (Robert Donley, who'll soon be replaced by Noah Beery Jr.), detective buddy Dennis (Joe Santos, The Sopranos), and squirrelly pal Angel (Emmy winner Stuart Margolin) with whom he did time at San Quentin (before being granted a full pardon). Season two highlights include the two-part "Gearjammers," in which Rockford discovers his dad's secret life, "Chicken Little Is a Little Chicken," in which Rockford helps Angel fake his death, and "The Hammer of C Block," with Isaac "Shaft" Hayes as a former cellmate who just can't get his name straight—he thinks it's "Rockfish." (The Oscar-winning Hayes also contributes an original number called "Gandy's Theme.") Even when the episodes are less memorable, Garner's easygoing Oklahoma charm and potent chemistry with his co-stars, including lawyer/ex-girlfriend girlfriend Beth (Gretchen Corbett), makes each one worth watching. Like most Stephen J. Cannell programs (Baretta, 21 Jump Street, etc.), The Rockford Files never had any difficulty attracting famous (and soon-to-be-famous) guests. The second year claims such notables as Linda Evans ("The Farnsworth Stratagem"), Stefanie Powers ("The Real Easy Red Dog"), Blair Brown ("The Girl in the Bay City Boys Club"), Rob Reiner ("The No-Cut Contract"), and Louis Gossett Jr. ("Foul on the First Play'). The only other bonus feature is a short, if informative interview with Cannell, who reveals that the character of Joseph "Rocky" Rockford was modeled after his own father. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

About the extras - the Amazon write-up is not entirely accurate. The Pilot for Season 1 was on the First Season set; hence it is not included here.

The US Season 1 set included an interview with Garner (not on the UK Season 1 set) that is included with this set, together with the interview with Steven Cannell (also on the US Season 2 set but not the US Season 1 set) as mentioned. Thus you get two interviews as extras with this set.

Highly recommended.

The Rockford Files, was in my opinion, one of the best detective series of it's generation. James Garner was a wonderful actor and he made the series his own. He was Rockford. Combined with Noah Beery as "Rocky" as well as the various guest this mad it a must to watch. I am delighted that I purchased it. Delivery was swift.

A good series, I don't think there was a bad one, it was my favorite 'detective' series and it brings back great memories of the 70's. Good quality DVD recordings.

22 episodes for just £7.50 of one of my favourite 1970's shows isn't to be passed by. The laid back Jim Rockford as usual finds himself engaged in all manner of scrapes, sometimes with bad guys, often with the law as he tries to make a living from his beach bound trailer. The circa 50 minute episodes have a nice warmth to them, with Jim getting into plenty of car chases and dinners out with female clients but there's often trouble just around the corner. This show is a warm memory of the 1970's and was a staple of Early evening viewing, nothing to offend here.

Several running gags appear regularly - the phone message on the answering machine at the start, clients staggered at the $200 a day fee (plus expenses, all itemised), Dad Rocky trying to get the better of his son over finances, the gun that's always found in the biscuit barrel... If you like Kojak or Starsky and Hutch this is cut from similar cloth and an easy way to pass 50 pleasant minutes

This proved to be the best birthday present ever.

Having watched them in the 70s this collection, with the very first episode (the wrong Rocky!) was a joy to revisit, chuckling under a rug together. Amazing car chases, and prospect of more hilarious, dodgy technology, hoodlums and nail-biting predicaments. The sets, costumes and cars and the acting - all marvellous!

Each episode is worth $200 a day, hahah! but pity he's gone - what a legacy...

I bought the DVD collections 1-5 for my dad for Xmas and he loved them. Well worth it. The quality is great.
The only negative thing I can say is I was unable to buy the 6th and final season as it was only available as a US import which was no good.
