Rockford meets Moe Greene
16 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of many 2 part segments that appeared frequently in this great series, and it's probably one of the better ones at that, as it revolves around a friend of Rocky's(Strother Martin)who's basically kicked off his land and ends up in a mysterious mental hospital and declared senile and crazy. The Rockford foil, played superbly by actor Scott Brady, is behind this scheme in a real estate scam to acquire the man's property, for which exact reason I can't quite recall. Alex Rocco, who played Moe Greene from the Godfather, also has a few scenes as another crooked figure out to get T.T. Flowers' land, as he helps Muellard(Brady)work around the man's daughter and his own wife, played by Karen Machon, who's led to believe that her father belongs in the hospital, but it's obvious she's wrestling with the decision, and her emotions are conflicting; she gets herself beat up by thugs because she won't let the plan take place without objections. I found Martin's character slightly annoying, and Brady's that much better and more interesting than the bumbling Flowers; that being said, I was more impressed with him during the latter half. James Garner was typically solid as usual, and he always adds his talents, Rocky has many nice scenes too, and a few by Beth and Dennis, plus the Firebird, which explodes in fire in a crash.

Since no episode is perfect, one thing that sometimes bugs me is when Rockford throws one goon into another to escape impending danger, and it happens here too. I guess it could happen in real life, but not sure it's realistic. I still highly recommend this episode, as the writing is terrific in what may be considered Rockford's best season.
