Welcome to the Definitive Episode Guide to The Rockford
Files. Just a brief word on how things are laid out and why things are done
Every season begins with a Production crew credit and
any other information about that season of the show (e.g. Emmy award nominations
The Transmission Date and Production Number
give the original date of transmission (in the USA) and a Production number
which was issued to that episode. These are taken from various sources.
"At the tone", details the message that is on Jim’s
answering machine at the beginning of the main title theme. These were taken
from The Rockford Files website sandbox.net.
We then look at the Writers and Directors, of
the episode, or credit who wrote the Teleplay and on whose Story
it is based.
The Quote from the episode is chosen by me. I try and
find a memorable quote from the story where possible. I will also use quotes
taken from Mystery Movie’s Rockford Game.
We then come to the Episode Synopsis – I hope they
contain an accurate account of the Rockford episode. (Please note that some of
the synopses were contributed by me to the TV Tome Guide).
While every episode Stars James Garner, I thought it
only correct to credit him for each story, particularly if he is the only
regular to appear.
