Hanging a jury with reasonable doubts
25 September 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The usual high quality of a Rockford Files episode is spoiled here as the premise of this has juror James Rockford hanging a jury with reasonable doubts. It's a case of drunk driving and the defendant is Mills Watson. A young woman was allegedly run down by Watson, later Watson and his sister hire Rockford to get to the truth.

First thing there's no way that a private eye would get to serve on a criminal journey. My job with NYS Crime Victims Board got me turned down time and again for criminal cases, imagine what District Attorney would pass on James Garner for a criminal case. I imagine even in a civil suit one of the parties would object.

Of course Rockford's PI instincts are correct would you have a story if they weren't. But the bad guys aren't dumb either, it was a pretty fool proof scheme and they delay Rockford with a plant in pretty Margaret Blye. What she does you have to see the story for.

But this is an incredibly flawed premise.
