very entertaining

This episode of the great Rockford Files has nary a dull moment, and has many entertaining scenes and fun performances right until the conclusion. An old acquaintance of Jim's stole $500,000 a few years back from his old employer, and the statute of limitations is about to expire(3 years), and he needs Jim's help to return the money after years of being sober and true to himself; it turns out he's wary of returning the stolen money himself, because he knows the authorities will ask questions. There are some great shots of houses on the beach, a nice scene with Rocky, and plenty shots of the Firebird. Other than entertaining, it's also a good-looking episode, and all of the scenes are filmed during the day. Oddly enough, I don't recall seeing the trailer, but I digress. There's great chemistry between Jim and Dennis(the latter yells at Jim, but in a funny way)when Jim suspects correctly that a crooked detective is also involved in "re-stealing" his friend's money, yet Dennis is in denial about it, although deep down he probably thinks Jim is correct. The last scene with Charlie(Jim's friend)is an odd one, but it worked for me, as he finds out that the irs wants $250,000 for the 3 years worth of him hiding the money. Soon after, we watch as Charlie starts to scream on the beach in a somewhat confused state, and then the show ends abruptly. I liked how cryptic the episode finished, and we're not sure if it was meant to be funny or sad.

Perhaps(I agree with the other poster here)the only aspect I wasn't terribly impressed with was the character of Sandy, who doesn't add too much for my taste. Supposedly, she and Jim were a couple(not needed here)and her father is Charlie. Their relationship is hardly explained, and their scenes together didn't exude much excitement from me.
