    Rockford Files as a favorite of mine too. Great one hour Drama... and MUCH better than Magnum.

    RIP Garner, a hell of an actor.

    If any of you own a '70's vintage Firebird you should take it out and do a couple 180 degree "Rockford" turns as a tribute!

    BTW, I was in 1[SUP]st[/SUP] grade when Maverick started but sang along with the Maverick lyrics in the video michaelrr1 posted. How the hell would I remember that.

    Maverick was just one clever show. Better than the movie.

    You should rent the two I put up...he was a wonderful actor, always had a certain charm regardless of the character he played.

    One of the first DVDs my son requested when he was in Iraq was "The Great Escape". It was borrowed so frequently that he left it there when his deployment was over.

    You could just buy it so you can watch it whenever you want.

    Stand alone, it might have been okay. Paled in comparison to the original (tv show).

    Sorry, I loved the movie.
    "you've been misquoting me all your life!"
    too young for the show but recall Rockford, although that may have even been in syndication.

    I loved the movie! But I've never seen the tv show, so maybe it was because I wasn't comparing the two.

    The gf has it, I have been lucky and only have only watched it once, and that is more than enough for me.

    For someone always looking for new shows to watch, what was Rockford Files about? Does it still hold up?

    No one and I mean no one got punched in the gut more than Jim Rockford

    At least once an episode the heavy dropped him with a stomach punch
