    Episode ratings are a funny thing. On the previous episode, 'The Countess', the high rating here on TV.com suggested that it was a favourite with many viewers, but – although I didn't dislike it – it wasn't a particular favourite with me. On the other hand, 'Exit Prentiss Carr' currently (February 2011) ranks as the lowest rated episode of the first season, with a 7.7; which is odd because I really liked this one.



    It is a very decent story, and one that kept me guessing throughout who was behind the killing. It does lull slightly into a "standard investigation of the week" midway through, and as with so many 'Rockford Files' episodes, I found I really had to keep up with proceeds in order to understand the explanations at the climax, but as I say, that is very often the case with the series, and either way, it leads to an exciting climax, with a shoot-out in a lumber yard.



    Not much more to say on this one. It might currently be the lowest rated episode of the season here on the site, but I like it more than some others from this first year. I give 'Exit Prentiss Carr' a decent 9 out of 10.moreless
