Handsome, charmed PI Lance White (Tom Selleck) may speak lines that sound like they're from a 1940s B movie, but everyone is so attracted to him they hang on his every word. That is, everyone except ...

Series about an ex-convict-turned-private-investigator named Jim Rockford who would rather run away than fight and would rather go fishing than work. He isn't a coward, and he isn't lazy -- just rather on the cautious side, that's all. And he bears a very strong resemblance to Western television hero Bret Maverick. Rockford is sometimes assisted (and sometimes deterred) in his cases by friends Dennis Becker (a police detective), Evelyn "Angel" Martin (his cowardly former cellmate) and pretty Beth Davenport (his lawyer).Written by

Rockford drove a Pontiac Firebird Esprit, not a Trans-Am as is often thought (though they are very similar). Although the colour of the car was referred to during the series as brown, light brown, or even brown on brown, the actual "official" Pontiac colour of the car was "copper mist". The car used was a new model for the 1974 to 1978 years, which for the first time was carried over to the sixth season and not replaced with a new model, because James Garner was not a fan of the new front end fascia of either the 1979 or 1980 models of the car.

Even though Jim Rockford always drives a current model Firebird, many episodes feature stock footage shot with older models, especially in the 1975-77 seasons. See more »
Yeah, well, we got snarled up in a case in August. I ended up doing 90 days on a county honor farm.
Well, I'm sorry about that, Jim, but I had my client's interests to protect and you did break into that hotel room.
What client? Who where you working for? Nobody seemed to know.
Well, that was kind of a strange one, those 3 little boys hired me.
The triplets? They were only 8 years old.
Yeah well when their folks were killed by the mob, I kind of took 'em in. Finally, I made arrangements for ...

The credits for guest stars, writers and other upper-level crew did not always appear right away, sometimes appearing as late as ten minutes into the episode. See more »
I grew up watching this show, and it's still on cable. I can watch it over and over and still be entertained. Rockford has bad luck, gets hurt, and Chapman at the police office hates him. Somehow, through cons, dirty tricks, smarts, and very slick moves James finds a way to survive. The humor in this show is great. Like the time he soaps the bathroom floor. 10/10
