Editors Note
Note This classic detective series successfully marries comedy with drama to create an Emmy-winning formula. The ever-charming James Garner plays the title character, Jim Rockford. Formerly imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Rockford now makes a (meager) living as a private eye living in Malibu--in a mobile home. Specializing in reopening closed cases, the aloof ex-con's investigations involve frequent run-ins with thieves, killers, and the police. With an irreverent wit and frequent beatings that separate him from other detective characters of the day, Rockford remains one of TV's most memorable men. This release includes all 22 episodes of the fifth season. Guest stars include Tom Selleck, Ed Harris, John Pleshette, and Harold Gould.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review The 1970's were the undisputed golden age of small screen sleuthing, an era that saw the primetime airwaves teeming with quirky, one name private investigators, loose cannon homicide detectives and fey insurance agents. Between Colombo, Quincy, McCloud, Banacek, Kojak, McMillan, Cannon and Baretta, there were barely enough unsolved mysteries to go around, but that didn't stop falsely accused ex-con Jim Rockford from becoming one of the most fondly remembered TV dicks of the decade...What really set Rockford apart from the other small screen crime fighters was a consistently fine performance from Garner, coupled with an emphasis on action and comedy.
