10-4, Rockford
18 March 2011 | by stones78See all my reviews

This episode has just about everything I like for this show, namely how Rockford portrays both a funny and angry side, several Firebird shots, and many excellent shots of sunny California. It is a pleasing episode to watch, and has interesting aspects revolving around a visiting family from Indiana, and a diamond heist. Ken Swafford stars as the ambitious rv driver, who, along with his quirky family decide to embark on a major trip to the west coast(guess who they end up parking next to?); Swafford has the distinction of starring in the final Rockford Files episode that was filmed, in 1979. There's a seriously funny scene when the daughter needs to use Jim's bathroom; you have to see his face as he sits on the steps waiting for her, as her mother tells her to spray when she's done. Anyway, Rockford is hired as a consultant with an insurance man(George Wyner)trying to make a deal with the men who stole the diamond, but things go awry, and now another crew is after the jewel, led by a man with a strange accent which appeared slightly out of place, but I digress. Watch as Rockford operates a cb(remember them?)when trying to locate the family, and adds a phony accent to make it even funnier. Lastly, there's a cool scene with Dennis and Chapman interrogating Jim and the insurance man, when Jim gets thrown into the drink while the other man walks away, much to the bewilderment of Jim. Add a bbq and Rocky and we have a winner here.
