One Flew Over the Rockford's Nest
22 August 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Terrific episode with a great guest cast. Jim is hired to find out about the disappearance of a man who was just released from prison. This leads him to a private club that caters to top LA city officials. He is quickly found out and is drugged and sent to a psych hospital under another name, in another state. There he's surrounded by a number of amusing patients--one guy who thinks he's James Bond (John Fiedler) another who thinks he's Doc Holiday, and James Bond's real nemisis--Oddjob (Harold Sakata) is also seen here in a rare appearance as John Doe. James Garner's brother Jack also shows up in a larger than usual role as the sheriff.
