    'In Pursuit of Carol Thorne' is another first season episode that I really like. It just has so many twists and turns (enough quirky ideas that would keep many shows going for an entire season!), and I love the case where everyone is conning everyone else, and the "rules" change every two minutes.



    The episode is written by (the sadly late) Stephen J. Cannell, series co-creator and my favourite TV writer, and the story is littered with his trademark wisecracks and offbeat ideas.



    The plot begins to limp very slight towards the very end, but thankfully things are wrapped up just in time, and makes for a very enjoyable episode. I give this episode a solid 10 out of 10.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Trivia: In the opening scene, Rockford, dressed incognito, is sitting in the back of a bus hiding behind the sports page of a newspaper. The headline reads "Angels Lose 11th Straight." In the summer of 1974 the California Angels lost their 11th game in a row on July 10, making the date of the paper Rockford is reading Thursday July 11, 1974.
