Rockford and the Rattlers
6 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the rare episodes revolving mainly around Angel, who ends up getting himself married to avoid trouble with the woman's family, who have a criminal history. Avery Schrieber(you might remember him from the Doritos commercials)guest stars as Azie Boyajian, who knows what Angel's up to and considering Rockford is his "friend", naturally the Boyajian's want both of them dead. Angel and Regine(a name you'll hear constantly)get married, and Jim is the best man, and a few scenes later Angel tells Rockford that she left him; this whole sequence seemed slightly rushed in what is otherwise another solid episode. The woman, in a not-so-great performance is played by Elaine Heilveil, whose name is misspelled in the opening credits, but I digress. There's a scene with her and Angel in Jim's trailer at the end, where she admits that she wanted him to physically get hurt by her brothers; that was a head scratching moment to me, as she had no emotion at all and it seemed a rather silly thing for a grown woman to say to someone she recently married. Back to the more important aspects of the story, it turns out that the Rattlers were a motorcycle gang and one of the members(now a used car salesman)accidentally killed a member or 2 of a rival gang, and the bodies were buried in this landfill currently owned by the Boyajian brothers. Rockford(James Garner again limps badly with his bad knees)eventually figures everything out, and the 2 goons get arrested after trying to get both he and Angel.

The whole gang is here, including Becker, Chapman, Beth, and a few scenes with Rocky. Gerald McRaney plays a minor part as he deals with an undercover Rockford persona. Lastly, you may recognize the voice on the phone in the beginning of the episode as Jackie Cooper's, who recently passed away and has a wide range of acting credits.
