The Rockford Files 5.11

Scott Marlowe. The ending is clumsy but this is an unusual and strong TRF which doesn’t feature Jim as much as usual and looks at the effects of a fake news story on a mafia family. We spend a lot of scenes with two characters who never interact with Jim as they try to plot a takeover (fueled by their belief in a story they read in a sleazy tabloid). It’s a clever idea for a story, and it really only falls down in the hurried climax. 8/10
