When Rockford is being interviewed by the federal agent early in the episode, the agent attempts to tape record the conversation. He presses the "Play" button on his recorder, but he does not press the "Record" button that is right next to it. Tape recorders of that era, however, all required that both the "Play" and "Record" buttons be pushed simultaneously in order to record a conversation. See more »

The trouble with this episode
22 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those episodes, while solidly written as usual, didn't have that certain something to draw me in and keep my total interest through the duration. Beth's cousin, Warren, played by a familiar face in Ron Rifkin, gets himself in trouble because he's wrongly charged for a murder he didn't commit and Rockford is reluctant to take on the case because he thinks Warren's a "turkey", but he can't say no to Beth and her puppy dog eyes. I don't quite recall the exact reasons why Warren was being played the patsy, but it didn't have the hook to garner(no pun intended)my complete attention, and the portrayal of the real murderer Gareth Hudson, played by actor Paul Jenkins, who was slightly vanilla compared to scores of others on this great show. There were some fine moments, perhaps the best being when Rockford and his dad, Rocky, had a bbq dinner outside the trailer near the beach; I always try to look for small moments like these which help humanize the characters. I also felt this episode featured some cool scenes of an angry Chapman, which is always good. The final scene is a pretty funny one, which has Beth tell Jim that her cousin is a "turkey." Back to Warren, he was practically missing from entire latter half of the episode.
