Take a shower, Jim
7 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those very entertaining episodes that had just about everything to keep my interest, especially the great cast assembled. I wouldn't say Rockford was a secondary character here, but even he was bested by the performances of Michael Ansara(Joey), James Luisi(normally Chapman, but Burt Striker here), and Eddie Fontaine(Sweet Tooth London), who also starred in 3 other episodes; Ansara was great, as he played a former inmate trying to go straight with a legitimate, but failing restaurant, and he enlists Beth to get Jim to help keep it afloat. Striker and Sweet Tooth both have their hands in the pie, as the former seems to be in organized crime, and the latter is a loan shark, who lent cash to Joey, but won't give him anymore; watch a few solid scenes with Angel as well. The Firebird gets to smoke a Monte Carlo, and then does the same to a very ugly Buick, and there's a nice shot inside the trailer. No one gets murdered for a change, but Rockford eventually figures out a way to con Striker in a clever, though probably unrealistic, plan to get $250,000 to Joey so he gets to keep his restaurant. I forgot to mention a funny moment when Rockford(Jim Taggart)and London ride a Ferris wheel together discussing a new loan for Taggart's "client", but London refuses; there's something about a 70's amusement park which takes me back. As I've said in other reviews, I would recommend a newer fan watch this great show starting with episodes in 1976, and remember, Rockford won't dance with anyone unless he showers first, especially if he's hiding in a sewer waiting for a suitcase full of money.
