“Hey Jim, this is Louie down at the fish market. You going to pick up these halibut or what?”
“Jim, it’s Norma at the market. It bounced. You want me to tear it up, send it back, or put it with the others?”
“Billings. LAPD. You know Thursday is Chapman’s 20th year, and we’re giving a little surprise party at the Captain’s. I think you should come. By the way, we need five bucks for the present.”
I finished watching all 6 DVDs of season 1. What a great show the Rockford files was. Loads of fun. Never too serious, just enjoyable. It mostly followed a pattern, but not too much of a pattern to get dull. I dare say that season 2 will be more of the same, but there’s nothing wrong with that.
So season 2, here we go.
I’ve liked the Rockford files for as long as I can remember, and the Christmas before last I got seasons 1 and 2. There are 6 seasons in all I believe, and once I’ve finished the first 2 I may well move on and watch the lot. However, one thing that I always loved about the show was Jim Rockford’s answerphone message at the start of every show. They never seemed to have very much to do with the episode, but they were always funny and gave you something of Jim Rockford too.
So I thought I would post all of them, yes, all of them, here. Not all at once you understand, but maybe one a day. That’s the plan anyway.
