Quotes

Jim Rockford: This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Marie: [beeep] This is Marie at Liberty Bail Bonds. Your client Todd Leeman skipped, and his bail is forfeit. That's the pink slip on your '79 Firebird, I believe. Sorry, Jim. Bring it on over.

A Very boring stupid episode
22 March 2017 | by MysteryRidahSee all my reviews

This is actually worse than watching a soap. Watching this episode, half way through there's no action at all. Just a bunch of moaning and whining from both parties. It's always a pleasure watching Kathryn Harrold, because she's a great actress and extremely beautiful. But honestly all i could think about when watching this episode is Gretchen Corbett / Beth Davenport.

In My opinion there was way more spark between Beth and James, then any other couple on the show. And that's really the bottom line, this episode was just wrong on so many levels. I see no spark between Kathryn Harrold and James rockford at all. She even mention she wanted kids at her young age, When she said that, james was so concern about himself lol he didn't care what she said and realized that she's not the one. Love can be misguided, believe i know this from experience, you may think you have feeling for someone and love them and maybe you do, but after spending time with them, actually knowing how they are, their views, etc you realized this person isn't for you.

Beth Davenport should have been bought to the final season and hooked up with James. This episode was just boring to watch , very awful episode.
