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 ...
A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
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's home and office is a 1959 Nashua House mobile home. The fourth wall on the set for the interior was mostly removed to allow the customary shots of the room from the point of view behind Rockford's desk; for the occasional camera angles facing the opposite direction, a portable wall would be fixed into place.

Throughout the series Rockford's trailer, parked in a parking lot, has electricity and running water, yet there is no evidence of a power line or plumbing attached to the unit. What's more,it often changed position, alternating with it sometimes being parked parallel to the beach and sometimes perpendicular to it. 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 message left on the answering machine at the opening credits changes from episode to episode, usually as some kind of gag. Occasionally it dealt with some part of the forthcoming story. Frequently the voice was of supporting actors on the show, either as themselves or as a completely unrelated character. 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
