The Revenge of King Tut
7 September 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Part two of this Jim Rockford-Ritchie Brocklemann combo episode is a bit of a letdown, but only a bit. The way they eventually pull the big con over on Coombs seems a bit of a disappointment after the promise of part one.

But otherwise this episode has a good appearance by Stuart Margolin as Angel, Garner is in top form as his Jimmy Jo Meeker character, and we find out more about the past relationship between Rockford and the beautiful Odette (Trisha Noble, doing a fine job). The joy of the confidence men when a big con is pulled off smoothly is a pleasure to behold.
