One of the best episodes EVER!
26 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This reran on a local indie station today, (Sept 26, 2006) and it brought back a lot of fine memories! Even though the basic plot premise was a little weak, stellar performances by Roger E. Mosley and Stuart Margolin really highlight a lot of fine writing! This is VINTAGE Rockford! Classic lines include: Even as Jim was telling his dad that Angel Martin knew to keep his mouth shut, Angel was spilling his guts to the feds "It was the ROCKFORD GANG! R O C K F O R D!" And Mosley's soliloquy as a loan shark, "You don't get no terms!" is one of the best in TV drama EVER! And Angel, ever in search of a free haircut, gets his in the end!
