The 1970’s was full of private eye or PI shows, but The Rockford Files was by far my favorite.
James Gardner was as cool as they come.
One of my many daydreams as a kid in the 1970’s, was growing up to be a PI, and getting a camper on the beach just like James Rockford.
Like most of my favorite shows, The Rockford d Files featured a great 70’s car, a gold 1977 Pontiac Firebird Esprit. It was no black Trans-Am like the Bandit had but still an awesome car non the less. Just one more reason for me to become a PI when I got older (never happened, the car or the career).
All the best series have strong supporting character and cast. Rocky, Sgt. Dennis Becker, and Angel were just a few of the regulars that rounded out each episode.
