Rockford or Rockfish?
8 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very entertaining episode with several faces you should recognize, including Issac Hayes, Dionne Warwick, and Tony Burton(Rocky, The Shining), and there are some popular musical acts also mentioned, such as Donnie & Marie and Frampton. This deals with the music industry(as if you couldn't tell)and Theta(Warwick)is kidnapped for some reason regarding an old stereo set, and a very angry Gandy(Hayes), who's in love with her, hires Jim to help him locate her. They make a decent team together, although I don't think Hayes was a great actor, and they're mostly at odds on how to handle things. There are some cool moments, especially how Gandy calls Jim "Rockfish" several times; when he says "Rockford" later in the show, Jim's surprised face is enlightening. Another great moment is at the end when Angel disguises as a record executive, to Gandy no less, and Jim catches him in the con; this is a great scene. Lastly, Jim does his famous J-turn with the Firebird, which is always a plus to this reviewer.
