The Rockford Files 5.10

Mary Frann, Steven Bauer. Solid mystery, good story, with a strong start and a contrived/rushed ending. The first two-thirds gradually reveal more and and more information and engage the viewer, as we wonder what’s really going on and whether the Frann character is really behind it. Her scene with Garner, towards the end, is a highpoint in the episode but sadly signals a downtown in quality, as everything beings to rapidly fall into place. And a brand new character starts explaining his plan and his motivations. 7/10
