4 stars out of 5 -- "This penultimate batch of episodes bubbles and sparkles with wit, drama, excellent characterization and good stories."
This classic detective series successfully marries comedy with drama to create an Emmy-winning formula. The ever-charming James Garner plays the title character, Jim Rockford. Formerly imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Rockford now makes a (meager) living as a private eye living in Malibu--in a mobile home. Specializing in reopening closed cases, the aloof ex-con's investigations involve frequent run-ins with thieves, killers, and the police. With an irreverent wit and frequent beatings that separate him from other detective characters of the day, Rockford remains one of TV's most memorable men. This release includes all 22 episodes of the fifth season. Guest stars include Tom Selleck, Ed Harris, John Pleshette, and Harold Gould.
