A Rockford with hardly any Rockford
8 April 2006 | by (South Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

This episode features none of the supporting characters and Rockford appears in only a few scenes. The episode is mainly a chance for David Chase to write about New Jersey mobsters. Except this episode isn't anything like "The Sopranos". The biggest problem is that the two protagonists (the "Coupla Guys" in the title) aren't very interesting characters. They're just a coupla guys. There's not much too them. They aren't interesting. You can't tell if they are good or bad.

Rockford shows up at the Newark Airport and gets his car stolen, his luggage stolen, his watch stolen, and later his wallet and plane ticket home stolen. This kept James Garner in one set of clothes which likely made it easier on his work schedule.

I've often wondered if this was a failed pilot. If so, I am glad it was. There is no way an interesting series could have come out of this clunker of an episode.
