Storyline

A farming hub has more business than it can handle, including giving Rockford the business. The PI's car breaks down near the boomtown, after a source Rockford contacts in a divorce case steers Rockford there. While his car is being worked on, Rockford is quickly entangled between an underage motel worker and her jealous cop boyfriend, and in a double-cross over a narcotics deal. Is it just another tricky day for unlucky Jim, or is bucolic New Pastoria a sunny sin city ? Written by David Stevens

The Kathie Browne Episode
1 October 2009 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

"The Rockford Files, Pastoria Prime Pick" (1975) is better known as the Kathie Browne episode. Browne is generally in the running for the most beautiful of the "Star Trek" girls, she played Deela in the "Wink of an Eye" episode.

Jim finds himself in trouble with the law in a small California town. Browne plays the town's sly mayor. The town has ingeniously taken the concept of a speed trap to its ultimate conclusion and soon after his arrival Jim is up to his neck in more criminal charges than you can shake a stick at.

There is no humor to speak of other than the opening message from Dennis on Jim's answering machine. But it is a slickly written and original plot which makes for enjoyable viewing.
