Angel diversifies
9 January 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of The Rockford Files has Rockford's prison buddy Angel working a new con. And it's just Rockford's luck that he happens by and has none other than the KGB tape him as he passes Angel working this particular con on somebody. And it's a real beauty knowing Angel.

Stuart Margolin whenever he's playing Evelyn 'Angel' Martin always dominates the episode. In this story he's masquerading as a hit man and the con is that he takes the up front down payment money and skedaddles. Of course James Garner's warnings about the downside of this particular con game go unheeded.

That is until Margolin is nearly killed, another man is killed and Garner and Margolin are blamed for the murder. Before it's all over the LAPD, Naval Intelligence, the KGB and some loopy church are all involved. And you won't believe what it's all about.

What I like about this one is that Angel finally gets himself some long overdue payback in the end. You have to see this Rockford Files episode to know what I mean.
