Trivia

Goofs

There are no bullet impacts in the sand during most of the strafing runs in the desert, but in a couple of the shots there is, so there should be impacts seen from most of the runs. See more »

Most Well-Written TV Series Ever
27 February 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is far and away the best detective series ever on television; in fact the only TV series that I like even better is Garner's earlier show, "Maverick." The writing and acting are in a class by themselves, and the viewer gets an anti-establishmentarian feast of people in authority acting like asses in every show, exactly like real life. Every episode of this series is its own little masterpiece. And if you see some real similarities between this show and "The Sopranos," it's because "Sopranos" creator David Chase wrote many of the later "Rockford Files" episodes. This is one of the rare network series that never insulted a viewer's intelligence, and features some of the best writing you'll ever see anywhere. Period.
