Storyline

The Rockfords work with Sgt. Becker to solve Rocky's friend's murder. When 6 tractor trailers from the same depot are hijacked by a gang, there must be a connection with the killing, but who desperately needs tons of ladies' underwear, grapefruit and dynamite ? The proud Rocky resents Jim taking care of him, making the slew of hit-men even harder to combat for Dennis and a very confused LAPD. Written by David Stevens

Trivia

The man who puts the dynamite into Jim's car, and with his accomplice, chases Rocky up the hill behind Jim's trailer, is famed stuntman Terry Leonard (Raiders of the Lost Ark, others). He is uncredited in this episode. See more »

Goofs

About half way through this part 2, Rocky, who is hiding out in Jim Rockford's trailer with Jim, peers outside and asks Jim are the men in the green Chevy. The two shots we get of the green Chevy are actually a 1974 Oldsmobile Delta 88 4 door hardtop, not a Chevy. See more »

Quotes

Jim Rockford: This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Angel: Hey, Jimmy, it's Angel. Don't pay no attention to my other message. You're out of it. You're clean, no trouble at all. Just ignore the first message.

Rockford on the warpath
6 May 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Picking up from where we left off in part one, this episode begins with both James Garner and Noah Beery, Jr. nearly being blown up when someone puts a bomb in the Firebird. Of course the Firebird is totaled. But trying to kill both Rocky and himself and demolishing his beloved car is too much for anyone to handle. Rockford is officially on the warpath.

It's all about several truck hijackings of disparate items and the trucks themselves are not recovered. Until the very last minute the collective intelligence of Jim Rockford, Rocky, and Sergeant Dennis Becker can't figure it out, but it has something to do with a particular trucking company and its president Scott Brady.

The gimmick is quite a clever one and the ironic thing is that if the bad guys weren't so paranoid about Rocky seeing a meeting he shouldn't have seen they might have got away with it. Make that probably got away with it. Because Beery would have thought nothing of what he saw.

You have to see this one just to see what was trying to be pulled off.
