If you liked Rockford Files, you might like this, too!
An ex-cop, ex-oil-rig worker, Tom Stone, (Chris William Martin), is sprung from jail to go undercover by a an amateur boxing champion mountie, RCMP Corporal, Marina Di Luzio, (Janet Kidder), to investigate an oil rig scam in Calgary. The mountie is a commercial crime specialist from Toronto and the two of them work on getting the "bad guys."
This series is somewhat reminiscent of the Rockford Files (RF) in its pace, tone and incidental music. The connection with RF becomes clear as this series is directed by Stuart Margolin who also stars as Tom's buddy, Jack Welsh. Welsh, a surly fellow who enjoys his scotch and cigars, is originally from the US.
Another similarity to RF is that Tom lives in a trailer, but with no beach.
Marina and Tom get along with plenty of friction between them which makes for humorous instances. For example, when Marina is trying to set Tom up with a wire and insists, in spite of his protests, he has to take off some clothing, someone walks in on them and gets the wrong idea.
All in all this is a promising new series and should make for some great viewing!
