Rockford gets mushy
28 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While this episode isn't close to being one of my favorites, the acting is very strong, as James Garner and Kathryn Harrold(Dr. Dougherty)carry this episode with solid performances and have decent chemistry together. This is more of a mushy episode, with too many kissing scenes between the 2, but it did have a tinge of suspense as the blind doctor is being stalked by someone. It turns out that Danny Green/Jackie Tetuska(John Pleshette)is the stalker, but we find this out much too soon in the episode, and I'm still not positive of the motive, but Rockford beats the guy up in a decent scene. Rocky, Dennis, and Angel all have cool scenes, and I have to admit I enjoyed the scenes Rockford had with these 3 more than those with Harrold. The best scene to me was the opener, which had Rockford and Angel walking on the sunny beach while tossing a football to each other; Angel wanted to borrow the Firebird, but was rebuffed because the mess he left in the car the last time he borrowed it. Also, the weasel Angel wanted to steal the football for his nephew, but Jim would have none of it. I've gotten slightly off track here, but this was still a typical solid episode in the latter years of this great show, and while it's not a favorite of mine, I think the majority of folks would still enjoy it.
