imagine the rockford files meets a southern California mayberry
I was sorry to see this show go off the air. It was at a changing point in sitcoms, on the eve of seinfeld, but not quite.
Jim Garner, shady, but loyal to his people, constantly bickering with the ever beautiful Corinne Bohrer over what was right and wrong.
This show, if given time and a slight recasting in secondary characters, would have easily given us a flavor of Rockford for the 90's.
The casting was fine in Jim's district office. Two beautiful girls, one made a bit less sexy than her true beauty, and Jim.
The mayor's office was a shambles and no one there fit the wonderful little city that Jim represented.
I've recently seen this show on tape and it was shows like this one that would easily have once been seen on a lively 1970's Saturday night. Certainly this show , given a full season to percolate, would have fit right in with the "Mary Tyler Moore show" and "bob newhart".
Times have changed and we likely will not see this type of show again. Too bad.
