  • Enter Angel.

    This is a continuation of Part 1\'s review.

    As part 2 comes along and Robert Webber is brought in further to the con, in comes Angel. Though Rockford has tried to keep Angel out of this one, he comes in anyway. A valid question is how ridiculous it is that Angel Martin is Jim Rockfords friend. He\'s always been more of a thorn to Jimbo than a help. The Angel character is great but more should have been done to show Rockford\'s emotional link to him. Rockford keeps a stronger alliance with him than to Beth Davenport. Anyway, this story may have been better without the Angel character as he creates a couple holes in the storytelling, such as accidently breaking an artifact and the bad guys don\'t notice.

    It all rounds with the bad guy losing and Richie Brockelman\'s father redeemed. This involves a large sum of cash. Interesting that if someone acquired a large sum of cash today and it was put in the bank, security (Physical live ones and digital ones) would probably come out of the woodwork.

    Another fun part of this two-parter is in the first part when the audience gets to watch James Garner do something else he loves: car racing.

    Overall, it\'s Jim Rockford in action, with a sidekick and an elaborate con that gets his man. A bit beter writen than duller Rockford Files.
