Becker in a jackpot
2 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Sad to say I could see this one coming a mile away in terms of a solution. In this episode Joe Santos a reluctant transfer to narcotics gets set up with some heroin taken from the police property room found in the flat spare tire in his car trunk. The rest of it sadly not found and possibly on the street again.

One thing about Jim Rockford he's willing to help a friend even though he himself says it could cost him his license poking around what is now an internal affair investigation. He resists but he does start poking around in Dennis Becker's jackpot.

Helping with the poking is Stuart Margolin. This is why Rockford keeps Angel Martin around, when you want dirt this man is the best ferret available to keep poking. He does come up with two names, but James Garner finds one of them dead.

Some interesting guest stars here with Jack Kelly as a connected club owner with his fingers in a lot of pies. He's brief, but memorable as the man pulling the strings and it was nice to see the Maverick brothers reunited. Also there's Jack Carter playing a second rate nightclub comedian. Carter in his prime was one of those regular comics that Ed Sullivan would constantly feature on his prime time variety show, he was good for three or four appearances a season.

Unfortunately the solution is rather obvious about fifteen minutes into the show. Fairly obvious who set Becker up.
